    How does a person go about submitting an article to SSWC? Who do you send it to, what do you send it on...burn pics and article to cd and mail with pattern? Any specific format needed for article? And how do I get that cover shot that is one of my goals in life?

    Going to write for us Jeff? Cool. What topics were you going to approach?

    BTW, although I posted a review of the other magazine on the CBD blog, I am not sure if you read it. Congratulations on your first place efforts published in the other magazine.

    Curious to know who you're inspiration was/is when it comes to your intarsia?

    Take care

      Jeff,
      We've got an editorial team that reviews all the submissions and decided which articles to pursue.

      So what we ask people to do is to send us some pictures of your proposed project, and a short outline of what you want to cover.

      The best person to send it to is Shannon Flowers at [email protected]. I'll let her know you'r sending something (I'm familiar with your work and love it <GRIN>).

        would that be a picture of the pattern or the finished piece? I'm building a war dragon, but only just began it today, and only have the head finished as I was taking some notes and photo's on the job. It's a project somewhere between beginner and intermediate, about 75 pieces, no frame, typical free floating intarsia. Basically some instructions and tips, along with the pattern of course...trying not to get too insane that hardly anyone can build it.

          If you have your pattern designed, and can snap a few photos of the process so far, I think that would be enough...We'll probably want photos for each step of the process, and I'd hate for you to have to re-do sections because we need photos!

            Toni...That picture was inspired by research into 16th century marquetry. Otherwise, I have no idea how to explane what inspires me to do the work that I do..meaning the subjects I suppose. I have a big imagination, which relates alot to fantasy which itself is all about imagination. I'm just trying to make the unreal become real ? I don't know...I'm just a hobbyist that some people say is way out of control.

                After a day of sanding cardholder strips for SIX hours which should have taken 2, Bruce is trying to square the table again. It didn’t hold square and he could only put one strip in at a time instead of 3 across. Any suggestions? This should not be this hard. I would expect this from a cheap sander...

                At least yours showed up. Mine are still MIA. We’re moving my area around to do some work, so I’m sure they will show up. I feel the same way about parts. In 19 years I have spent approximately $600 in replacing worn out parts. Couldn’t be happier with my Hegner.

                I lost a blade clamp and had to order more. It showed up on the floor about 6 months later, like magic.
                Spare parts for anything can be expensive. Often low volume but it is sure nice to be able to buy parts for a 20 year old machine and not have to scrap it out or jury rig some repair.
