Question Fishook

Hello everyone

I am glad to find a place where I can lean more about scroll sawing. I am interested in Military patterns (Army) my dad was in WWII 3 tours. I am making a tribute for him. Also any info on making patterns would be great.

Thanks Hook

Welcome to the boards Hook!Browse around and enjoy!A lot of your questions about scrolling can be answered by using the "search" tool at the top of the of the page (just under where it says Welcome Fishook).I don't mean to sound like I'm saying not to post questions--it's just that its a great tool to get answers quick,rather than wait on replies.

If you haven't found it yet, there is a thread for pattern designing at the bottom that might be of some use to you.I know that GIMP is a free pattern design tool and Jediscroller has posted a step-by-step instructional for using it in that section.

And please share some pics of your tribute if ya can

Jerry C

Let me add my Welcome and second Jerry's advice.

To add to that, do you have anything specific in mind? If so, posting in the pattern section about what you have in mind may let someone quickly point you in the right direction.

In closing I think it's wonderful that you're doing a tribute to your Dad. Good luck in finding exactly what you need to accomlish that tribute.

Thanks for the welcome. I am not sure what direction I want to go in with the patterns. Any ideas would be great. I know he served with the 113th Engineer Combat Battalion in the Asia Pacific Theater The three different place he went to were New Guninea , South Philippines and Luzon. He was a Demo Specialist. Other than that I don't know alot about the unit. Also where can I go to look at the software you are talking about The GIMP

Hi Hook.Maybe a shadow box with some pics of his unit and stuff? As for the software, try this site- GIMP - Downloads

I didn't think to ask what type of computer you have.Gimp can be run on Windows or Mac.

Good luck on the project, Jerry C

Hook, the thought that comes to mind is this as a starting point.
Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Since he served in the Pacific theater, IMHO, this would be a fitting tribute. Perhaps patterns already exist for this photo.

I like Jerry's idea of a shadow box, too. Perhaps, you can do one with your scroll work in the center and his mementos around it. If you have woodworking skills, a custom shadow box is easy to make.

Hope this helps.

Edit: Did a search and found this thread that may be of interest since it has a Flag Raising cutting. http://www.scrollsawer.com/forum/bra...tion/22649.htm

Here's another link that has some patterns that may be of interest.
