    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.

                          Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

                          Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                          Now,...

                          It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                          Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
