”BUBINGA – LOW RIDER” By BazzA.. Waterfall Bubinga Bathed in glorious Tung oil and Kissed with Beeswax.
First Photo sits with a previous project “Harley Logo” crafted from American Cherry and shimmering in the back is a stunning chunk of “London Plain” . So enjoyed making the Low Rider and what an amazing Wood !
The waterfall grain is so rewarding to work with, Rich in colour Heavy and dense.
This timber is a whopping 30mm thick so nice and slow on the scrollsaw with No7 Pegas Blade.
Hope you like my project I love it ! Thanks for checking it out :::::::: BazzA.

Hi Bob : Thanks for your question about a pattern.
I had no pattern as such, What I done was went onto Google & clicked onto Google images and searched for Harley Davidson Silhouette.
I then right clicked on an image and copied & pasted the image into my photos, I then transfered this into my SERIF word prosessor and resized it then printed it out as a pattern. The image was really basic so a lot of the work cutting out was done free hand I just cut away till I thought it looked more defined. I also done the Harley Logo the same way.
You can also click on almost any photo and copy & paste them or save them and “print” and use it as a pattern.
I am self taught and sorry if I am unable the explane clearly an easy way to do the computor stuff, As ive never had anyone to teach me at 53 years old, I’ve stabbed at every key till I get a result.
Same as all my woodwork I dont really know what Im doing I just have ago till Im happy with it.
This project is 1.5 inch thick 11 inch long and 7 inch high but with my software I can print this across as many A4 pages as you like to create a much bigger pattern. Glad you like my project Bob Thanks for checking it out.. BazzA.

Wow. Excelent Bazz. Nice design. I do the same process for the silhouette, is effective.
30 mm??? That is very much. I like a lot. The cuts looks perfects. Congratulations!

Hi just to show the thickness of the BUBINGA its ” 31mm ” = “1.5 inch”
No Flash scrollsaw ! I have a 15 year old Hegner multicut one ~ But I do demand top blades. Swiss PEGAS blades are in a league of there own. PEGAS No7 cuts 30mm hardwood without much fuss all be it a little slow. Use the right blade you can cut just about anything, it amazes me when people pay $2000 dollors for a scrollsaw then cut 10 cent 4mm mdf or some old orange box ! Seek out something a little special and if you cannot buy it local its always available through E-bay.
Thanks everyone for your input Glad you like my project ::
PS: Please checkout my blog on my 450 year old Oaks Beechs and Silver Birch Trees. Thanks BazzA.
