    I had been wanting to cut this pattern for sometime and a buddy gave me several of these unfinished oak cabinet doors, I couldn't resist.

    The oak panel itself measures 16x11 3/4, the whole door is 22 1/2 x 16, I just left it the way it is and enlarged the pattern which by the way is by Paul Folmer, I put a natural oil finish on it and topped it off with 2 coats of polyurthane.

    It too is headed for it's new home at our local VFW post.

            First off how thick is the board you cut?
            When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
            that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
            for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

            I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

            Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it) make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...

            I would have to agree that I've not personally made many designs from the magazine, as I have progressed to making most of my own designs. However, I do enjoy some of the reviews and other articles---as well as checking out techniques of others. I debated as well, but decided to renew. Now I just...
