  • Weekend Project

    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.

            Boredom has probably lead to many a great idea, invention, etc. throughout life. I too like this concept of mixer pieces storage.

            There are a lot of good points brought up here. Some may be easy to correct, others not so much. As far as Fox Chapel replying to this thread, I am trying to imagine a response that would not have made at least some people upset.

            As far as the pattern size in the books, I believe the physical...

            I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

            John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

            Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

            I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...
