Ken Shirley about  050A 4-Foot Compound Bow Cutter:
Mar 20, 2015
This customer purchased the item at our site.
The extensive number of tools offered by HWFF provides something to meet every advanced need. I couldn’t be productive without the full series of cutting knives in various lengths and rigidity. The scroll table provides detailed precision cuts that defy imagination…and the Free Hand Router gives one the ability of a sculpting tool but with the rigid ability to make strong, authoritarian cuts and designs. But perhaps my favorite is the Bow Cutter. This tool provides superb enjoyment in cutting through massive amounts of foam and in providing huge landscape and terrain opportunities. It is adjustable to handle smaller jobs or huge endeavors. Once a better skill and confidence level is achieved, I highly recommend it to round out the pro series of tools and capabilities of HWFF.

My primary passion is building and instructing on massive, running dioramas that capture the imagination with extensive carving techniques. I have been collecting Department 56 Christmas Villages since 1995 due to my childhood following of Dickens and Victorian London. The Original Seven Shops of Dickens remain my favorite of the collection with their history and nostalgic past. I have always been very active in the National Council of Clubs, having held offices in my past club in Albuquerque for 18 years. I designed and maintained store displays throughout Albuquerque in five gift stores since 2001 and conducted countless seminars to store customers and club members explaining the “how to� of my displays. I recently relocated to Tulsa and am now a member of the Oklahoma Village Collectors Club. I have presented seminars at several NCC Gatherings through the years, including Minneapolis, San Antonio, Austin, and Dallas. I was hired by Department 56 as one of their National Display Artists and have created showroom displays at their headquarters, One Village Place in Eden Prairie MN, Columbus, Seattle, and Denver. I have made two instructional DVDs for Hot Wire Foam Factory, which are sold nationally~~the most extensive being the 90-minute Building An Epic Village Display. I have been published in Village D-Lights for my work and have also created countless other displays in private homes and other retail establishments nationally.
