    Yea, I've fudge it a tad myself without a disaster, but do it before you start cutting the project. I've cut patterns from Keaner book, I forgot his first name, but he drew patterns without a dotted center line, so you have to just center it the best way you can. another option is to print out the pattern at 90, or 95%, so it will fit your wood better. Compounds are so cool to cut, and you did a sweeeet job on your project.

      WD,
      Had the perfect answer for your question. You did a nice job on the ornament.

        Very nice cutting on the ornament. When I cut them I use a little wider and thicker piece of wood just in case I get to close the the side...seems to work OK for me.

            Make sure you have it locked well in your holder,If it moves after you cut the frist side you'll lose it. Lance

              Excellent job on the ornament. Either using a slightly larger piece of wood or slightly shrinking the size of the pattern when printing it out works as well.

                Cutting through the pattern issue on other side. This has happened to me when I did not start my initial cut from the top or bottom. If you have/want to start your cut on a "side wall" you must be careful that your "opposite side" pattern is facing you.

                    Tim,
                    are you using clamps or did you make a clamping device like i use with 2 carriage bolts and a wing nut..

                            Sounds like your table to blade is O.K.
                            My guess for your next question is that you are using pine.......?
                            nothing wrong with that but it acts like what you describe.
                            Try using clamps or the jig Mike spoke of, one thing you don't want is the middle piece flopping around while cutting. Personally I like the small Quick clamps, but it's just a personal preference. Good luck.

                                Hi Linda - thanks for the comments on the welds. It took me an hour or so to get into the swing of MIG wire welding but I really like it in preference to stick welding especially for welding thinner material. I confess to investing in a new angle grinder to help with the cleanup and dressing. I bought...
