  • sourwood?????

    I live in the western part of North Carolina, and one of the favorite woods for carving woodspirits is sourwood. It has a fairly heavy bark, with a nice red cast just under the surface of the bark, and carves easily when half-green. I have done some traveling before I started carving, but never noticed sourwood in other parts of the country. Can some of you tell me if this is a local name for this wood, and if so, what is the proper name? I do know the blooms, or tassels in the spring attract honeybees and it sure makes some good honey.

      I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

      John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

      Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

      I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

      This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

      I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

      Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

      How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...
