  • "For my Brothers!"

    Don't post a lot, but do look around often. Had this pattern laying around for a while and have forgotten where I found it, but finally got it cut and framed. Thinking about recutting with wood that is not so wild grained (maybe BB instead of oak). Thanks for looking.

    Hi Teacher, like the cuttings very much, the subject matter is great. I think a lighter
    would enhance the cuttings a lot. Very good. Thanks for showing.

      Great cutting teach,
      i think a less grained wood like bb would definetly enhance the pic,
      not doing much
      and busy doing it

      having fun making sawdust.

        Nice job. I agree about the wood choice due to the grain.

          I would say, in my humble opinion, is that in this particular piece, the wood grain looks pretty cool.

          But I stick with BBply for portaiture.

          Beautiful piece by the way...!!! Very deep...

            Cool picture! I rather like the grain, looks like a sand storm. I was wondering if a bright background (like bright red) possibly would make it stand out more.

              Hi Don, I usually use a maple or birch for wood with portraits but for this pattern I rather like the heavy grain. Thanks for sharing. Steve

                      Using Corel Draw a 10 inch round acrylic jigsaw puzzle was created. It was the cut on an Epilog Laser. Two passes were used to cut thru 1/4 acrylic so as not to melt the plastic. Only one person has put it together so far. It is about 475 pieces. But would really like to try and cut one by...

                      As far as the Incra miter gauge, if you keep it 1/4 inch away you will be fine, but you will have to adjust it when doing angle cuts, it’s a great miter gauge, RJ...

                      Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
                      I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
                      For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

                      The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

                      Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...
