  • Two Projects

    Here are some recent ones, comments and constructive critisism welcomed. First is the Jonah and the Whale, once I corrected for the directions given, and the other is a lighthouse.

    Draken, very nicely done! I know Carl gets a kick as would any of us seeing a project/pattern of our own being cut by someone else. Curious as to the lighthouse, will you be mounting it in a frame with a black ot colored background, or will it hang where you have it in the picture? Reason I ask, the pattern on the wall behind the lighthouse makes for an interesting backdrop.
    Keep them coming!

      Two thumbs up on both counts.
      Yes I get a kick, but that is usually from my wife telling me not to get to swell headed

      Awesome job

            I just cut the whale the other night. You did a nice job on the light house.
            nice straight cuts.

                Thanks for the kind words everyone. I must admit I forgot the whale's mouth, but if anyone noticed, they didn't mention it. As for the background of the lighthouse, not sure yet what to do with it. The background on it is actually one of my wife's jackets that I use as a backdrop for my photos. I don't think she'd appreciate it being cut up... I do have a neighbor that may be interested in the lighthouse, so may see what they would like for a background, if any. As for price, I was thinking about $10 for it as is (stained but no other finish). Does that sound reasonable or should I put a finish on it first? It is 3/8" BB ply.

                Thanks all!

                    Just Wondering...

                    Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

                    With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

                    I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

                    Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

                    I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

                    If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...

                    Hi Linda, great find...I think.

                    Please keep us up to date with any information you receive. I would really like to get into this, but my computer skills are almost nonexistent, I need something that a 74 year old air head 🙄 can figure out. Thanks for sharing.
