Default Decided to try something different....



I still have to find some thing to slot those holes with so they resemble openings following body lines, and stuff.

Thanks !
Well I work in a facility ran by Koreans.
My supervisor is Korean, and a real nice guy to boot.
He has been taking heat from above for us lately that no man should have to take.
I was thinking about finishing it up real nice and giving it to him. He really has been taking some heat for standing up for his crew. If you are Korean and go against other Koreans to aid Americans you can expect the wrath of God ! LOL !
Just something to show him we appreciate him and what he does for his crew. It is a traditional 4 toed Korean dragon.

I'll do that Bj, and thank you sir ! I consider that a pretty good compliment from some one with your skill set in wood working
I am really digging the whole scroll saw thing now. Its so easy.. I mean you can print out literally just about anything you want to cut out via your printer then trace cut it with a scalpel, lay it on your work piece and trace with a pencil, then go to town. A couple hours later you have exactly what you printed out minus the graphic work.
Pretty neat stuff. Transform a flat dull piece of work in to two, or 3 dimensional works you cant easily achieve other wise with out a scroll saw.


Oh yeah I guess I should let you know how big it is. The dragon is about 8 inches tall, made from 1/4" pine.

Hi

Here's a neat little trick,,set you saw at 5 deg.cut and you can make a 3d project, they will pop right up for you..try it with a simple cir./oval at 1st.
only cut in one direction around and around, a very easy way to make a wooden flower basket..but fun to make..

Tip on glue up..stand a 6" long 2 x 4 on end ,take 3M spray glue,but the 3d basket upside down ,on the 2 x 4 ,let it hang down, put the glue on all the edges, then flip it over and let it hang till it's dry...put on a hand made handle finish it out, give to the BOSS and watch her eyes light up..
The last one I made was about 10" x 15" out of some 5/8" thick Oak.

That's awesome! I haven't seen the spouse out in the shop yet. That beautiful scroll saw is collecting dust. Unlike yours which is turning out art! Great job and nice gesture for your boss.

Ah Duane, if only I had your skill and patience, I'd brush the dust off my scroll saw.
