Carl Gordon Weckhorst

"The Father of modern day fretwork" October 23,1924 - January 19,2002

Although deeply saddened by his passing, we can all rejoice m his having lived. It is with a spirit of respect and admiration that I honor my good friend, Car) Weckhorst, with a few words in his memory.

Well known for his scroll sawing and woodcarving talents, visitors from ail parts of the country (including me) made special trips to his home to see his magnificent Creations. His li felong love of working with wood produced a house full of amaring.cloeks, furniture, and hundreds of other projects of every size, shape, and description; Carl's hands were gifted with many talents.. .and were as big as his heart!

It is because of Carl's passion for scroti sawn fretwork that many of us today can once again enjoy a hobby that had all but died out entirely in the mid-twentieth, century. Carl had spent much of his lifetime searching out and collecting old scroll saw/fretwork -patterns from the late 1 HOrt's and early 1900's It was the projects that Carl had created from these patterns, coupled with his know-how, that were used to re-kindle interest in scroll sawing beginning in the 1980's. Thanks to his generosity and willingness to share, scroll sawing is alive and well today!

I will always remember Carl as "The Father of fretwork," the man who carried fretwork and scroll sawing "like a belovedchild7' through a period of time when much could have been lost. His work opened my eyes and the eyes of many others to a fascinating world tilled with magnificent Fretwork projects.

I am blessed to have known him, and forever grateful!

Locate and drill two 11/64" diameter holes for mounting screws through the upper base piece. Countersink the screw heads flush with the bottom. Also, drill 1 /16" pilot holes in the bottom of the cross to line up with the base. Install two 1" long drywall/multi-purpose screws to test fit the cross to the upper base piece. Make adjustments as needed, then reassemble with a small amount of glue between the parts. Fasten securely together and let dry.

Also, locate and drill two 11/64" diameter holes through the bottom section. Dry fit, then secure all together with glue and two 1-1/4" long drywall/multi-purpose screws. When completed, apply finish as desired.

May you be blessed in many ways for your efforts! jjlj|
