  • Question on Floral Fretwork Cross

    Hi , my question is on the floral fretwork cross on page 74 by Tim Andrews. As I look at the picture and at the pattern their are some noticeable differences between the two. Is there a specific reason why they would not match up. I know that the picture and pattern are reversed but they still are not exactly the same. I see no problem for it could have been breakage or fallout. I was just wondering because it was noticeable. Steve

    We reversed the photo because the shadows looked odd coming from the other side (it's easy to flip photos in Photoshop).

    But I see what you mean...I never noticed that! When Tim sent us the pattern in, it was hand sketched, so we sent it out to be re-drawn. I've looked at the origional, and aside from the lines being crisper, it's identical.

    I wonder if Tim adaped the pattern as he cut. Thanks for pointing that out!!!

      Cross Differences

      I had another subscriber email me about that - and like Bob - I never noticed the differences until they pointed them out! I did email Tim and haven't heard back from him yet. A lot times, the designer will cut a proto-type and then make changes to the pattern before publication. I'm assuming that's what happened - I'll let you know when I hear from Tim.

        I think my shop floor is full of prototypes
        I can see how that would easily happen

          Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

          We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

          He has 4 of the long ones, but we have other sizes that he uses for clamping up his cheese board slicers, another good seller. They go for $35, left over wood from dough board.

          What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
