    Hi everyone. It’s good to be back and reading all the wonderful posts and humor. Well I’ve been working hard on a new relationship and am now getting married. What a ride it’s been. im a happy man.
    I wonder if I might get a hand on font advice. I want to make our wedding cake topper with some nice scroll work. I just don’t have any good fonts.
    The attached image is similar to what she would like.
    Its going to read: Steve & Brooke. Alone with the date. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you and I’m so glad she supports my scroll sawing.
    Happy me.

    I have a font called Great Vibes that is nice for this type of project. Available at

    I put together this sample. It might take a changes when cut to make sure it holds together etc. (Extend the t and e in Steve, the r, fix date)

    PS: that is my wedding date.

        Don. I certainly like what you came up with. Thank you for your time. I will be looking into this font as it’s exactly what I’m looking for.
        The good thing is, Brooke also approves.
        Again thanks a bunch.

          I have used it on a few projects and it worked on some, not so good on others.
          What I found was the yellow on BB plywood is too light in pigment--even with two coats full strength. Had to scrap some pieces and pick another color. The red, blue, green, orange did great. I should say the dyes mix...

          Along with what Tango said. The earlier saws did not top feed,not exactly sure when the change happened. I personally would not buy a Hawk that has the lower barrel style clamp. I would look for a saw 2005 or newer. That has the new clamps Variable speed, top and bottom feed.
          If you can get...

          Thanks for the info, Rolf. Sounds like the Corian was the culprit. Interesting.

          I have tried really hard with Inkscape and Paint. Dabbled in a few others. Mostly I find it to be a glorified mouse that I have to be overly carefuly to keep my hand off of the surface while using. True graphite and paper artists don't allow their hand to brush the paper because the graphite would...
