  • A lit'l help from my friends...

    PLEASE! I am working on a box design for my SO's birthday and all is coming along nicely until I got to the artwork portion. I want to include artwork of our dog, D.O.Gee, (sssshhhh, he doesn't know he is a dog - lol!) Anyway, I have never created a fret pattern before and really struggling trying to get this into a usable pattern. I converted the color photo to grayscale, and cropped out all the background...but still cannot get the results I want....arggghh. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!! I am not looking for a very complicated pattern, as it will be reduced down to fit into roughly 4" oval shaped plaque.

    Thanx again in advanced!!!

          I have several bowls that I have turned a few are natural edge or have distorted a bit over time and I have not been able to finish the bottoms to my satisfaction.
          I have had a vacuum chuck for many years but getting the bowl centered is always a challenge. So I bought this setup https://ww...

Then there is the issue of the less computer literate who will have no clue about scaling or have the resources to do so. Maybe for the oversize patterns have an additional scaled copy to fit a standard...

          Reply to Source for 5-Ply poplar plywood?
          by millwab
          I’ve migrated to poplar from Baltic birch for my puzzles in part because it’s easier to cut and doesn’t wear out blades as quickly as the BB does. I can usually cut 5x the number of puzzle pieces in poplar than BB with each blade. I currently get my poplar ply from Cherry Tree. They sell it in...
