This is the question! To Be colored or Not to be?
We have Fretwork on the left side and the Cub Scout Logo on the right side.
I am thinking of just leaving them uncolored, and if I decide to sell these Patterns. I will let the buyer, buy as a finish yourself product to keep cost of materials down as well as the price.
I finished both of these today. The Fretwork took the longest, as I had to be slower around certain areas. As you can see more Fragile areas that could have been broken easily.
Well with my Skill. Muhahahahaha... It Shall go unbroken.
Kidding. For the most part here. I am using Oak 1/4" Ply. Don't really like it all that much, it seems to splinter often. Altou, i've been using my Craftsman blades, on the Fretwork, just for the Biggest sections thou, not the smaller. I was Lucky today and received my Scroll Saw Blades from Mikes Workshop.
After I finished off my biggest area on my Fretwork, I finished drilling my Smaller holes (Didn't have any Smaller Drill bits, So I took a 3/4" long 18g Brad Nail, Stuck it in my Drill press, upside down, Turned it on, Filed the head off of it, took it out, and Filled 1/2 way threw the nail bout 1/4 way down, this gives the nail a cutting Surface, Means Cleaner Holes, instead of puncture holes), then I put in my Flying Dutchman Blade. The Flying Dutchman Ultra Reverse (FD-UR #5).
It has served me well for the rest of my Fretwork, Clean cuts easy cuts, compared to my Craftsman blades.
Now word to the wise thou, these blades are pretty well sharpen, that you need a study hand to guide these blades, or they will take control until you do. They will Slice threw the wood like a Hot butter knife threw butter.
These blades are a Blessing. Just the short few hours that I have used these blades. I am Truly impressed with the craftsmanship, The sturdiness. I would recommend these to anyone that is a beginner or even an advanced scrollsawer.
I will continue buying these blades from Mikes Workshop as long as he continues to carry them. For anyone interested again, check Mikes Workshop out, you will truly be amazed at the quality and craftsmanship of these blades.
