    But won't it look gorgeous when it's done! Congratulations on being such a grown-up!

    (And I suspect you'll still find money somewhere for more toys.)

      That's gonna look really nice when it's done Rolf! Good thing you waited until you already had most of the toys you wanted.

        Wow Dorothy could do some fancy hop skip and jumps on that sweeeet looking "brick road."
        Looks great so far, and as you already know we would love to see more pictures when it is completed.

          Yup, lots of toys there. Looks great though. The neighbours will be knocking on your door to help them.

            That is beautiful.
            Wish I had the talent to complete something like that.

                OK, I concede that not EVERYTHING can be done using only a scroll saw and sanders!

                  That is really nice Rolf. That is what my husband Robert does for a living.
                  I'm sure you will be able to buy toys and you will be smiling as you drive home and not trip over a broken driveway.

                    That looks really good. Mine is a boring cement drive, wish you'd make a copy of that for me!

                      Beautiful Rolf, expensive, but durable. we had ours done about 8 years ago and it looks better now than the day they finished it. Enjoy.

                        Dude! There are times when I actually spend money on something and when I am done or when the project is done I step back and say "Wow! I love the stuff money can buy!" I can 'hear' that voice coming through your writing. That is an awesome project!!! Congratulations on a well made decision and ~ as they say ~ money well spent!!!

                          Hi Rolf - that's a beautiful job you've had done. Well laid pavers are also my idea of a really stylish and long lasting path and they just get better looking with age.

                          Next job is the garden?

                            That 's lookin' awesome...
                            Would you care to share the pattern...

                            Seriously though... That's the right way to do a driveway and path....

                              Looks great so far Rolf, when do we get to see the final results?

                              JimS could you do an inlay of that? LOL

                                Just Wondering...

                                Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

                                With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

                                I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

                                Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

                                I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

                                If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...

                                Hi Linda, great find...I think.

                                Please keep us up to date with any information you receive. I would really like to get into this, but my computer skills are almost nonexistent, I need something that a 74 year old air head 🙄 can figure out. Thanks for sharing.
