Default Lou and The Babe

Hi everyone, I hope all are well and safe. Thought I would share this fretwork cutting, THANKS FOR LOOKING.

I recently posted a picture of a puzzle that I cut for my 10 year old great nephew...he loved it. His birthday is right around the corner, so I was given permission by the designer to cut this fret saw design of two of the greatest players to ever hit the field, us old guys will remember them, but the little guy will learn a little history about them. I added the iconic Yankee Stadium frieze, whicht I belive is historically accurate.

Thanks to Kris from Scroll Saw Village for the use of his great pattern. I made the frame and Ann Marie cut the names and the patriotic baseball on her Cricut machine.

Nice job. I'll always remember seeing video of Babe pointing at the fence with his bat as if to say the next is going over right there, and it did.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

That is a really nice creation, especially for a Yankee fan.

I like it, looks great. Can you feed a board through the Cricut,or does it make a pattern to cut/print the figures. Very interested in the procedure of how you did this,if you can explain.

Great history for all especially for the little guys.Who could forget The Babe pointing with his bat, as mentioned earlier by Charles?

You can't drive a bridge spike with a tack hammer(so I'm told)

Good morning to all. Thank you for looking and for all the kind remarks. Connor loved it, and it is hanging in his room already... he and his little brother are now BIG FANS of THE BAMBINO.

Herb, if I understand your question correctly, you may think that this was cut with the Circuit machine. This is a hand cut fret work cut on an EX 21 roll saw, I used 1/8 inch Baltic Birch plywood because it is so stable, but if you look closely you will see some areas that were nail biters. I proceded with extreme caution on those areas and I also presanded the panel to 320 grit so I wouldn't have to deal with the weak areas after the cut was complete. I wrapped the panel on the front and abck with 2 inch blue painters tape and then used 3M 77 spray glue to attach the pattern to the taped panel. When the cutting was completed, I soaked the panel in WATCO Danish Oil, then let it dry for 48 hours, after that, I used a spray can of lacquer for a finish, the frieze was glued on prior to the lacquer application. I made a frame useing some poplar I had and painted it white with the intention of painting the classic Yankee Pinstipes on it, I asked Ann Marie to cut out the names for me and when she found this patriotic baseball, we thought it looked goog on the frame.

To answer your question, Ann Marie dosen't think the Cricut is capable of cutting wood, she uses it for fabric, paper and vinyl, and to be honest we are not aware of any body useing it for wood.

I am sorry for the length of this reply, and I hope that I was able to answer your question, please let me know if you would like any further explanation.

Rick
