ENGLISH FIGURED OAK.
Couple of Scroll Saw Plaques today
In Beautiful Figured English Oak Finished off with Lemon Oil.
Twice the weight and density of my usual Oak and was tough cutting but slow and sure does the job.
Get the right blade and speed and a bit of patience its well worth it.
Regards Barry ENGLAND

Hi Kwoods…..Well its what I do Most days now.
I make them to order and designs and technique seems to have developed with trial and error.
Self taught no fancy tricks just a scroll saw.
I am Dyslexic so dont find it easy to explain my methods except I buy what I think are interesting Boards the wonder what I can try use them for.
These used to take me all day to make but now Im quite fluid with them I do them in around an hour.

Hey Bass, it’s good to see you are still kicking. Great looking letters. I have also been at the scroll saw of late, but I and cutting thinner woods while making some fancy bowls and woven style baskets. I’ll post a couple here soon. Good to see you are back cutting.

Great looking names, Bazz! I really like the undercut you made between the letters and the base. Carving tools by hand or something like a Dremel? Thanks for sharing.

Yes I use a Dremel Wheel to cut the lines . Steady hand and a bit of practice.

Hi Larry Thanks…. Yes Im still at it.. I have now semi retired and re located from crazy London and my work in Aviation Trucking to a small quiet town 250 miles north. I am working real hard at my woodwork to give me an income and its starting to pay off ! well at least its heading in the right direction and seem to be picking up orders most days now.. Glad your still enjoying your scroll work Larry. I hope you was not badly effected by your latest volcano eruption ! I hear it was bad but I no longer hear or watch any news as I rarely bother with TV or radio anymore .

Roman Thank you but that sort of makes me laugh a little as I just make it up as I go along its all trial and error. I can’t cut a straight line.
I enjoy it all the same. I can do Art stuff but would have no idea how to build or make furniture .
I think because Im alone and untrained I come up with ideas to try make things work.
I am only just starting at 58 to understand how Dyslexic I am.

Barry thanks for asking about the volcano problems. We live approx. 60 miles Southwest from the lava flow so that does not affect us, but the gasses put out by the lava is pretty bad to breathe. I have has several spells and ended up with a hospital stay because of lung problems. But we now have a room Air Conditioner for those really bad days. The air quality is really bad when we do not have the trade winds to blow all it out. We to town today without A/C in the car (it has broken down) it was pretty bad. We always have a large view of the ocean, but can’t see a damn thing through the vog. But we will survive.
