    With practice for intarsia I actually TRY to split the line. but you have to be consistent. Mostly I use as thin a blade as possible and cut down the center of the line. A Pegas MGT #1 R is .010 inches thick and the actual kerf is .011 so every time you cut an Intarsia piece you lose that wood. On larger...

    With Intarsia, you need to cut on the line or better one side of the line. If you don't ,you will have gaps .

    Personally, I would not start with a spiral blade. Get experience with a skip tooth or reverse type blade.

    There are certain projects, like text, where stray cutting really pops out at you. Arcs, circles and longer straight lines also show more.
    As MarkDavid said projects that require things to fit together are precision critical (Intarsia)...

    When the profile is a simple one--lines or circles--it's often prudent to cut just to the outside of the line, then sand to the line with a belt or spindle sander. This not only increases precision, but provides a smooth surface. However, I view this as a technique, not an excuse for sloppy cuttin...

    In another site someone said just cut and to correct with sanding. To put it in SLRA’s words sanding is a finishing step and not a correction step. I have a problem seeing fuzzies more than a line that is slightly off. As for spirals, I’ve ruined some fretwork cuttings and stopped using them. We...

    Improvisation is certainly acceptable, but some patterns are less forgiving than others. As someone else already said, learn to follow the lines as closely as possible. If you wander from the pattern lines, it is usually best if it is intentional. It takes some time and practice, so don't get too...

    The lines matter if you are making a multi-layer project if you need things to line up, otherwise it's artist's interpretation.

    In my opinion, the only perfect lines you need to cut are circles. Everything else is just artist interpretation.

    Following a line is like driving , look a bit ahead of where you are going and gently steer toward that point. Some blades will not cut straight because of how they were manufactured. typically the will cut to your right as you face the saw. I sit slightly to the right of center to compensate.

    in theory the practice lines are perfection, the truth is the closer you get to following them, the better off you will be in the future. That said I get bored easily, so I think I did them twice.

    There are spirals and there are spirals, I rarely use them but there is one that has flat...
