  • Black lab

    I actually did this about 2 months ago but just ( finally ) got a pic the right size for sharing . It's probably the hardest thing I've done so far and I learned a lot from the experience. You guys are right, one of the best learning tools in this hobby ( spelled a-d-d-i-c-t-i-o-n ) is seat time

                Robert (member),
                Great job - I like it a lot!!
                Just being nosey - but where did you start, and then what?? I always think these sort of patterns should say "start here" and "here second" and "save this cut for last". Seems one could get into so much trouble doing it in the wrong order (but, maybe only once!)

                  Long winded answer

                  Sandy,
                  i agree, instructions would have been nice I was intimidated by this pattern for over a month. It was complicated to look at...especially to my rookie eyes. but I love my buddy ( Merlyn ) and was determined to have a whack at it. one Sat it was raining, I couldn't work in the yard, and I had nothing photo-copied to cut. I just decided to go for it.There were some X's to denote pilot holes but not all spaces were marked . I actually took a pencil and lightly shaded the pieces to be cut and then compared them to the small picture that was on the pattern. Then, like the books say to do , I cut all of the tiny parts first as that is my biggest chance to tank the whole thing ( blade control ya know ) . Then I just kind've went with what I thought should be next, sorta doing a section at a time. My music was playing , Merlyn was lying underneath me in the dust ( as always ) ...life was good ! Once in awhile I would ask him where to cut next ....no help at all ! Just wanted another scrap to chew on Look closely and you will see that the shoulder, neck and top of the head are all one piece ! I saved that for last. I had done one of the medium size pieces on the side and had my first experience with " bounce " as I neared the end of the cut ...scared me to death so I did that final large piece in sections, reinserting the piece and taping over all the " squigglies " so they wouldn'y break. I learned a lot from the experience. Most of all not to be as intimidated in the future. As they say, it is after all " one cut at a time " . The joy of rounding that last corner and getting back to that final pilot hole is something I will always remember. I think I really turned a corner with this one. Then I found this group and wow ! I'm in for the duration
                  Thanx for the kind words

                        Very well done, especially for your first. I too like the added detail.

                        I have used all sorts of methods for putting on patterns. The only time I put a pattern directly on the wood is on Intarsia as the shaping process removes it. I only use blue tape under the pattern on very small projects.

                        I Use clear removable contact paper (shelf liner) on the wood and...

                        I agree about how it was advertised, but it is my own fault, I know better. Just for curiosity I may strip the paint off and see how true the plate is.

                        The good thing is that while I had my saw blade off I cleaned it sprayed Crud cutter on it let it sit then wiped it off with a skotchbright...
