  • Another chapter in my life closed

    On Tuesday Feb 7th at the age of 77, my Dad lost his battle with cancer. It was a long and emotional 4 days for me. He was laid to rest yesterday at the Black Hills National Cemetary for Veterans in Sturgis SD. The governor of South Dakota requested that flags be flown at half mast on Friday in honor of his work as a State Senator. My Dad was an exceptional wood worker and I learned so much from him. As kids we thought there was nothing he couldn't do. I want to thank everyone on this forum for their prayers and thoughts

              Dan, my prayers and heart-felt condolences to you and your family.
              Death can be a time of rejoicing if we're prepared but there is still a grieving process that most of us go through.
              May God grant you the strength you'll need in the coming days, months, and years.

                                Scott, I was referring to her pms to Bill Wilson and Quartz. They posted her reply by pms instead of on here.
                                Would be nice Quartz. I asked got Bob to put the issue next tp patterns and he said something about real estate. He found a way to do it and didn’t lose any real estate. Guess they don’t...

                                I would be pleased if FC at least did a trial of printing A pattern on regular sized text and also providing a scale up factor. Their resistance to do anything if a real pain. It was a similar lack of action with the website that resulted in lost viewers.

                                I think Kelly did that because I wrote a letter to the editor complaining about an article in the last addition. It was the article about staying connected online and it didn't mention the FC forum....

                                The fastest I've ever seen one of those 3d deer cuts was by Rick Hutcheson. That man was super fast when we was working the shows.

                                Here he is much more recently, and a bit slower:
