  • Dapper Dude

    This is my first attempt at a portrait. This is of my grandson who will be one year old on the 22nd. Thanks to hints I got from Gill's thread on line thickness to make the pattern.

              Hey, that's a cut above the sort of portraits we see so often. It's nice to know that our conversations are helping people .

                    Great job Bill, now you will have to keep a series of him going as he grows up. As fast as children grow and change maybe you should order blades now. Steve

                      Thank you all for your kind comments. There was no real occasion for him to wear it, my daughter put it on him to see how he would look in it and took a photo of him. He is a happy and good natured little guy and very spoiled because he is the first grandchild on both sides.

                      Now I just need to remember how I made the pattern because I am trying to make other patterns and am having more problems with them. A lot of it depends on the photo and what kind of lines are there for the different programs to pick them up to make the patterns. I am using Photoshop pro and Inkscape as well as the Coyote Stencil.

                          Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

                          We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

They go for $35, left over wood from dough board. On late shift yesterday because I took a 2 hour nap around 7. Off to the saw! I have 8 days of shows in 2 weekends! And one...

                          What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
