  • Trivet design

    I make a few different trivets which are very popular here and the enclosed design I usually make on an oval shape. I have been trying to find a new shape for this pattern and the best I could find was the enclosed design. It is actually a lens hood from a camera and I made it oval shape but the big problem is that it was a pencil drawing and very thick.I just cut this one to try it out and cannot use it again as it is not accurate enough, Could someone come up with a pattern with a thin defined line roughly to the design of the enclosed. I would be so grateful, Many thanks.

    That's gorgeous. Looks like a nice wall hanging thing.
    Pacifism is great, as long as everyone is participating.

      I'm sorry i really don't think i understand what you would like done. Do you want the flower made into a line drawing? Or the shape of the outside plaque? Or maybe i am way off. What exactly would you like to see? Sorry for my denseness. I haven't had my coffee yet this morning lol

        Hi Russell. I hope you are keeping well and making plenty of sawdust. I am sorry, I am a bit vague as well sometimes. What I am after is just the outside shape, ideally as a line drawing so I can follow the line closely on the saw. The flower is just one of many designs I use for this sort of work. I have some really nice patterns I would like to use in the above shape. Thanks Russell.

        Thanks for the comments Stephen.

              Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
              That is...

              The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

              Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

              Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

              Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

              Now,...
