    As a beginner working on the same thing the forms look quite good to me. I'd agree that the cuts, particularly the ringing, or spines, seem a little deep. A small detail that I obsess about on my...

    Karl,

    It seems like the cuts are smooth and clean, at least much better cutting than what I'm currently struggling with on English scroll.

    At the risk of a beginner offering "ignorant"...

    Dani,
    With regards to size, off the top of my head I think Marcus says about 7mm is the max scroll size. It's limited by how large a plunge cut can be made to cut the inside work in proportion. I...

    Thanks Shawn
    Good advice on practicing alternating scrolls. I've not been posting my basic practice like that but maybe next time I do a plate like that I will.

    Critique Request: English Fine Scroll Reality Check

    I spent my latest practice time on basic English Fine Scroll working on a practice piece copying Marcus' layout across half of it.

    There are a host of minor issues with scroll shape, some...

    Well like me, you're not alone in your unusual tastes :) Good examples ( unlike my learning piece ) can be found in some folks' collections. There's one in the Queen's gun room in Sandringham for...

    John
    Thanks for the comments. Yes, the most difficult thing I'm trying to figure out at the moment is the infill tendrils. They're very typically, although not always very subdued and I've not got...

    Layne
    Thanks for the input.
    Yes I find drawing this type of pattern particularly tricky as it seems to need a slightly different drawing technique. So far I've been tending to draw as I'd cut...

    Sam
    Thanks for taking the time to comment; much appreciated. Yes definitely a lot more sketching needed. I'm not too worried about time on "large pieces" since I view this as basically a cutting...

    Thanks for the reminder. I do have a couple but haven't really used them much focussing more on actually cutting.
    Obviously I have plenty of scope for putting them to use :) It would be a useful...

    Nice effort. You've got more nerve than me jumping into a a real world object fairly early, let alone a stainless one. To my eye one thing that could benefit from practice is the smoothness of the...

    I'm hoping someone might offer their views of areas I can improve on in this latest attempt at tendrils. It's a 2x2 GRS steel practice plate. Primary lines and "ringing" were cut using a 90 on an...

    Thanks for posting.
    I've been working on practicing some simple British gun borders myself so a different style that may account for a different perspective.

    Hi
    I don't have much advice to provide since I'm a beginner myself but I wanted to say thanks for posting.
    It's good to see fellow beginners posts to put things into context if nothing else.
