  • Boy do i feel du... not smart


    So there i was working on my new project, part of it needs a compound feather. Ive tested a few patterns on some small pieces of wood about 6"X1"X1" or so.

    A few came out ok, a few not so ok. Actually one of my feathers came out looking like a leaf, (now i know how to cut a

    So i decided to cut one close to the finish size about, 12" x3"x3/4" , the wood blank is just a bit bigger.

    So i glue on the pattern, cover with tape admired my work and began to cut.

    cut...cut ....boy im good...cut ...cut....following all the lines......great

    im so good....... mabey i should quit my job and do this full time.....i can sell these things for at least nine thousand dollars......cut....cut......perfect .

    the long flat side is done, now to turn it on its side and do that part, boy im good.

    hey pete you know how wide this feather is...nah never paid any attention to it, looks good right ....yup looks great

    hey you remeber how wide a peice of wood your saw can cut.......nah not off the top of my head why?

    Sorry to hear of your dilema

    Do you know anyone with a bandsaw that you can finish it off with?

    BTW don't feel bad I have done the same thing. After all the blade is 5" isnt it

          Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

          Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

          Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost.
