    michael, if it is available , get a magnifier wit a light source and use it .. you will find that you can see the lines better and so you will get tighter fits and also cut in the same direction, either clockwise or as i do counter clockwise. the most important thing is patients. welcome to the group

          Hi Michael and welcome to the forum it's great to have you here. I think you will love it here and will soon see a vast improvement in your cutting. Don't be scared to ask questions and post pictures of your work. That way people can put their finger on any problems you may have. They are a great bunch of folks here and very very helpful, with a sense of humour that runs through the entire group. We have a couple of scollers from Ireland on here who are very talented.

            The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...

            I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...

            I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

            I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

            First off how thick is the board you cut?
            When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
            that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
            for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

            I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!
