                  Way cool, Bill!
                  He looks like one tough hombre. I think I'd fold.
                  Really fine cutting.

                    Thanks everyone! I had to stop and rethink my plan of attack on cutting him once I got started, I've got to go into work today so part two must wait untill I get home tonight. I've got it drilled and ready to go.

                    I'ts still to early this morning, I need more coffee, so I'll try and explain how I went about cutting this hombre later this evening. One thing I will say is, Sharp Blades!!!

                    Part two tonight.........

                      Very, Impressive work,
                      There isn't much wood left to keep it together.
                      Is it a Jeff Zuffino design?

                        Bill, you are the man. I am trying to follow in your footsteps. Keep up the pace and I'll try to keep up. I have learned a lot from you and your style.

                          Thanks Rolf and Mike and again everyone! I really appreciate all the comments from this group!

                          Good news, I'm home for the rest of the day and it's beautiful! AND I have the next two days off with more excellent weather forcast, so I am heading off to the saw and start making the saw dust fly!!!!!

                          Rolf, this pattern and the one I am getting ready to cut are both Charles Dearing patterns. If I understand and remember right, Charles had a site with all of his patterns for sale and viewing, but some low life(s) hacked into it and stole his patterns I believe you can still buy his patterns thru catalogs such as Scroller. The last issue of SSWC had a pattern of his also.

                          Now it's off to the saw!

                            Looks to me like a couple packages of Bull Durham tobacco.

                                None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                                What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                                The bags seem easier on the surface.
                                But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                                Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                                As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                                I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....
