« Part 1027: Of Mice and Tablets Part 1028 of My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer series Part 1029: Little by Little, Things are Coming Together »

Today’s post is going to be rather short. I did accomplish a great deal yesterday and finished up my drawing for the next project. Today I am going to cut the pieces out and begin the painting process. That is always fun for me.

While I love the woodworking part of my job and really enjoy the scrolling, I also love doing the painting process on things, too. I am often torn between creating painting patterns and scrolling patterns and many times I try to do both versions of the same thing.

I am excited about the next few days and seeing my ideas come to life. I hope they come out as I envisioned them, and I will certainly keep you all updated as to how it is going.

I wish you all a wonderful day today, and hope you have time to do some things that make you happy.

I already know that I will enjoy today!

Look forward to seeing the new stuff.

I know it goes against tradition but could projects be designed using different woods for color, like intarsia?

Oh sure, Jay! I do it all the time! It is just that sometimes people have trouble getting exotic woods and also everyone doesn’t have the means to plane them to the proper thicknesses. Then there is the cost . . .

I usually like to give several options so that people are able to use what is available to them and in their budget and still make a nice project. :)
