  • A couple of do nothings

    I cut these two "do nothings" today, cut from a single piece of poplar, they're quick and easy, at least if you have a dremel to finish them up with. The dime in the picture should give you an idea of the size.
    Thanks for looking!

        Cute and tiny. Great job!

        Did you use spirals......

          Barry this may come as a shock to you and a few others but I did NOT use spirals to cut these! I used a FD-#5 skip tooth. (I've been practicing).

              Great project. Don't see the dime, cleaned my glasses and still don't see it. Yea, I know, one in every crowd. Great little project though, where did you get the pattern?

                Troy try this if you haven't already, click on the image, that should open the image in another browser then open it all the way. Hopefully you will see the dime then.

                  No, still don't see it. See the NICKLE, but not a dime. Just messing with you a little. You still didn't tell me where to get the pattern.

                    hi bill
                    working in miniature stuff as i do, these appeal to me greatly, i take it this is compound cutting, i want to make something similar to this half way up a 4 poster bed leg and need to know how to do it. I am still waiting for my books to arrive, one is on compound cutting.
                    bill, would you say this is possible in a 1x1 inch round piece of wood, and could more intricate pieces/shapes be cut, **** cant wait to get going, my head is about to imploud with ideas.

                      Troy the pattern is available thru John Polhemus, [email protected]

                      Steve, yes this is a compound cut project and it is my 2nd project of this type. I cut some Christmas ornaments of this type also. All the projects I've seen have been cut from a 4 sided block as opposed to a round piece. I'm not sure how that would work. I do know that cutting them is a lot of fun.

                              I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

                              John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

                              Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                              I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

                              This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                              I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                              Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                              How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...
