My first efforts in Woodworking


Recommended Posts

I lived in Antwerpen, Belgium for 4 years from 2009-13, took a few trips through the Netherlands.  The family loved our time over there. 

The elephants look pretty awesome, i could see why your coworkers would love them.  You're quite the artist.

Thank you Chucklz  and New2woodwrk for those nice comments.

Within a few days I am going to start my first real big project. It's going to be a 30x30 inch wall-art-object-thingy :-)

I will keep you updated and take some real pictures.

Sweet can't wait to see it and the progress

Arie, that is some very nice work. It makes me want to get my scroll saw out, lol. What kind of scroll saw do you have? I have a skil brand, I have used it a few times and I don't know if it performs as well as a more expensive one. I guess a skilled and experienced person could do a lot with it .

Thanks Chet

Keep in mind though that I am still learning the ropes.

@ Stew

I have the Delta 20 inch Variable Speed Scroll Saw.
From what I have read online, this was a joint effort from Delta and Dewalt,
to create a new kind of saw.

It has a liftable arm, which makes it so much easier (and faster)
to change from one inside cut to the other.

All you do is untightened the blade at the top,
lift the arm,
slide your product over the blade,
lower the arm,
tighten the screw, and you're good to go.

@ ClassAct

thank you so much.
I assume you're talking about the Elephants?

Currently I am "stepping" it up a bit.
The ones on the pictures are just birch ply.

Now I am making some which are made out of Maple and Walnut.
