  • Hi I'm Craig

    I live in the land of the Hodag or Rhinelander, Wi. I'm a new 62 yrs. old. I served in the Navy as a lab tech assist and Field marine with the 3rd marine.
    I'm a retired 30 yr veteran of law enforcement. I'm a beekeeper, fishing Kayaker and grouse hunter. I have a fantastic bird dog that I escort through the woods and admire her enthusiasm. My handicapped son David is my fishing competitor. David got his own kayak this year. I do not like being able to walk on water and I let snowmen go free. I have been making in line spinners, scrollsaw wearables and listen to bluegrass and dreaming of sunshine and open water. Oh I forgot to mention that I collect cookbooks. I very seldom fix the same thing twice for dinner. I'm a Swede that loves Asian food. I bike or walk or take the car if the first two choices are not available. Im also a contributor to Custodial Workers resource for safety and sharing performance information to tie workers together.

          I didn't mention that my young pup rides in the back compartment of my kayak when Im fishing. She keeps moving from one side to the other to watch a loon or watch someone on shore so I have to adjust my balance. I even catch her biting at my fishing line when it hits her.
          But the greatest thank you I get from her is when she stands on the hull to lay her head on my shoulder or to give me a kiss.

            Hi Craig, welcome.

            I like bluegrass also, but if I can't take it out of a microwave I starve.

                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?...
