  • Good Morning from Jesse

    Hi all! Just stumbled upon this forum this AM (woke up about 0230, been up ever since).

    Been scrolling about 12+ years, much more seriously for the last yr. Took the plunge and purchased an Excalibur EX-21 in Spring 2006, and hummin' along ever since.

    I'm AD USAF, been in almost 23 yrs. Guess I made it a career after all. Got a couple more to go before I retire.....

    I built myself a new, personal website over the Christmas holidays, link below if you would like to check 'er out....would appreciate some feedback on how it's running, page speeds, etc.

    Hi Jesse

    Welcome to the forum .

    That's a very impressive website you've produced - and impressive woodwork too! I found it very easy to navigate and no delays.

                    Me retire, heck no...I think we as a family have decided going to 30 is my calling. Besides what does an Infantryman do in the civilian world...mall security? lol

                    I check out your photos and left a few comments, nice work on all though, very mipressive.

                        nice work...

                        as I was going through your site I noticed that you had a qoute in the gallery section from Toni Burghout, "craft becomes art when the work isn't mass produced but made to be original and not just like the last one".

                        I never seen that qoute before and it sure got me to thinking.
                        you know how hard I tried to get my Mallard ducks to look just like the picture?

                        thank for sharing your site with us...

                              A quick Google search for fretwork book stands showed pattern on Pinterest. Might be worth a look.

                              I agree that with fret work the grey areas may be useful but not needed for Intarsia and some others. It would not be difficult to use grey for some patterns and just lines on others.

                              Another thing to note is that not many have the ability, software or equipment to stitch patterns back...

                              This is only my opinion.

                              Hi Linda, My first reaction is it looks good, and my new toy craving started to twitch, but I thing it will be very limiting very quickly.

                              It is a small engraving machine and if that is what you want and need maybe OK. You are limited to 1/8 shank...

                              [QUOTE=Quartz43;n873079]No doubt, the large patterns are a real challenge. Not many have a large size printer. Going out and finding a place to do large scans and prints is problematic with the virus and many of us are older.

                              I wish they would not print the patterns with the grey. Pure...
