Bill Young's 'Lacy Clock'

A gallery of scrollsawn and turned projects!

SHOP OWNER: Bill Young
LOCATION: Creston, BC, Canada

    I am new to the forum and thought I would try a few pictures of my work to see how they come out. Most of my projects are done on the scrollsaw. The "lacy clock" at left has 130 inside cuts and is made of western red cedar.


     The keepsake box at right has a fretwork leaf pattern on all four sides and a decorative lid attached with brass hinges. I make it in a choice of satin laquer or hand rubbed oil finish. The box is made of clear pine. I use a DeWalt scrollsaw and Flying Dutchman blades. I stack saw most of my work and the three scrollsaw projects shown here each took an average of eight hours from start to finish. By stack sawing I make two of each of them in the same time frame. I have written an article on stack sawing and would be glad to help out anyone with questions regarding scrollsawing.

    The large vase at left is made of baltic birch plywood. It is 12-in. high and 10-in. in diameter at the widest point.


    This is my first ever attempt to make a bowl on the wood lathe. I just got the lathe recently and it is a nice change from scrollsawing.
