  • At sea??

    Well, I was supposed to go back to sea last week, but apparently there is something wrong with the ship. Darn. Now I will go this week sometime, but only for a week or two.

    Anyway, Since I was home, I cut out a POW/MIA pattern I was working on. I have one in a book, but decided to make my own pattern, and that is what I did and it looks great.

    Now I am working on another military theme. If any of you happen to have the Fox Chappel Book Scroll Saw Military Designs by Mike and Vicky Lewis, you can get a grasp on what I am trying to do. I took the four basic emblems, Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps, (with a little modification in photoshop) and am going to put them on one project. I can't decided if I want all four in a row, or in some kind of pattern, or with some kind of slogan. Really driving me nuts. Any suggestions?

    Try one in each corner with perhaps a flag or saying such as "To Honor Those Who Serve" in the center.

        I've hesitated to mention this design because it's British. Perhaps you could adapt it?

        There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

          Cutting Styles

          In preparation for a scrolling demonstration I decided to make up a piece that would show the different ways I've cut puzzles. It's 2 layers of 1/8" BB. The puzzles were cut out as tray puzzles and then glued back in so pieces wouldn't get lost as it was handled.

          Update at 13 AprilIts been almost a month since my last post and my shop extension is progressing albeit slowly largely due to me nibbling at it on a regular basis rather than sticking with it and going full blast to get it finished.

          The outside
          of the extension is almost finished apart...
