      Owler-- Have you thought of gluing the broken piece back on? I know we have all fixed a lot of pieces that break and with a little glue you won't be able to tell it was ever broken

        It took a little while longer than I thought to get back to this. The hawks were flying(unless I get a pedal saw, it's tough to scroll sitting on a mountain top ridge with binoculars) and the open house was underway.

        I finally got it right!

        I presented my daughter with a butterfly that had two matching antenna. I was able to cut the whole piece in one direction. I just slowed the saw WAY down around the very tight radius of the antenna. When I finished I did a little dance (not pretty to see, but I was alone in my basement after all).

        Thank you all for your advice!

        I am really glad I spent the time doing this. This one small pattern covered a lot of technical details about cutting and my skills have dramatically improved. I litterally cut this pattern about 25 times until it was perfect.

        I hope not to cut anything with a butterfly in it for a least another month. On to bigger and better things.

            Kewl!

            Below is a puzzle piece I could cut no other way than slow as molasses. It's only a bit more than 2" tall, but took the better part of an hour to cut because ruining it would have meant wasting an expensive picture, wood, and a lot of other work.

            It was worth the effort, though, because people gasped when they saw it.
