Deer "See Creature"

This is a See Creature eye glass holder pattern designed by Sheila Landry. The pattern was from Creative Wood Works & Crafts July 2010 issue.

This is the cover

This is what it looks like. It is made of Oak and finished with shellac. I made it naked with out paint.

Made my own router table for the Dremel

I made my own router table for the dremel. I was using the drill press attachment to rout with but it was a pain. Then I came across these plans at Router Table Planes. I made some minor changes like the table top is rounded rather then square.

Round Multiple layer Puzzle

Well I have finished this puzzle. it was a nice simple thing to cut. It looks harder then it actually is to put together. Each layer is slightly bigger then the previous so you can eyeball the pieces and pretty much tell what level they are from.

Enjoy the pictures.

Christmas Card Puzzle

Well I completed something I have been meaning to do for a while now. That is convert a Christmas card to a puzzle. It is simple take a Christmas Card you like and cut the front off. then glue that to a piece of BB ply. I choose 1/8 most people seem to use 1/4 but I have a bunch of 1/8 hanging around so I might as well use that!

It came out decent the 1/8 seems like a good choice time will tell. I put a clearcoat on it prior to cutting out the puzzle. I did not "Free hand it" I created the pattern and used another piece of ply on top with the pattern applied to that. I made it a 77 piece puzzle. Why 77? Well that is just what it worked out to be.

The pieces all cut out

The puzzle all together

Victorian Cross

This is a WIP, Work In Progress. Actually this has been posted over the past few days to my facebook account but I figured I would also post it here. This pattern I have from 300 Christian & Inspirational Patterns for Scroll Saw Woodworking Second Edition Book by Tom Zieg. I'll start with the picture of my scroll saw and work my way down to where I am now.

My Scrollsaw which is a Craftsman 16"

The start of the project. At this point it has blue painters tape then the pattern is glued to that then it is covered in clear packing tape for lubrication of the blade

Now the outside has been removed. I decided to remove the outside edge first since this project is made of red oak. It will make the piece smaller and easier to handle doing it this way.

Now will follow various stages of cut outs from the past few days.

The not sanded and not yet stained cross.
