              Cathy the pattern came from a Patrick Spielman pattern book.
              I found a link to it on amazon.com
              http://www.amazon.com/Classic-Fretwo...8922610&sr=8-1

              The pattern you want is on page 63 of that book.

                        DW, that turned out goregous! Did you stack cut it, or do all four individually? Is that a wooden dowel or brass fitting? As said, your presentation is lovely. I am hoping one day to get that good at my fret cutting..I still have the stop and go lines. I guess with time and patience...and I seem short on both these days - lol!

                          I did stack cut them and I used a 1/4 dowel to pin them together. The stand behind it is just one of the many plate stands this particular one came out of one of the books of plate patterns. The whole process was not particularly difficult only time consuming. It is one of the reasons I dislike doing fretwork. Have to start and stop too many times

I hear ya on the stopping and going...it's funny how I can spend hours and hours sanding/carving details, but hate the stop and go of fretwork. I commend anyone with the patience and skills! Thanx again for the info!

                              Love it DW...!!!!
                              The cedar was definitely the right choice...!!

                              As far as stopping and starting, it's just a matter of Zen. Prep your mind for the task, and simply be there...

                                None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                                What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                                The bags seem easier on the surface.
                                But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                                Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                                As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                                I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....
