  • Thank you Charlie Dearing

    Finally got my spring issue this week and practically fell over when I saw Charlie's bass pattern. From the moment I saw it I knew everything else would be put on hold. I jumped right in the middle of it after work yesterday. There were quite a few tense moments but I'm happy to say that nothing broke and there are only a couple of " personal enhancements "
    Man what a ride ! I thoroughly enjoyed it ....Thanx Charlie and thanx to our wonderful hosts for making it available

        That's definitely on my to do list also. But this one is going to be for me. I have yet to do a portrait just for myself, but this will be it. The one thing I look forward to every spring is bass fishing. Can't beat them for a good battle.

        Sawduster, I just hope my flat blades will do as good a job as your silly spirals.

        And yes, thanks a heap Charlie for sharing this with us.

          This definitely looks exactly like what bass fishing is about. I love bass fishing. It is special and different from the trout fishing that I have at home.
          Love the rendition. Very well done.

            Robert, I couldn't agree more. Charlie did a wonderful job on this pattern, not like that is a surprise. I have admired his patterns for a long time. He is (in my opinion) one of the best fretwork pattern designers around.

            When I seen that project in the spring issue, I immediately thought of several ways to use the design. I would love to see Fox Chapel grab him up and have a book of fretwork patterns hit the stores.

            Your great cutting is very appealing. You did a wonderful job!

            Take care

              That is a nice pattern and Robert you did a great job on it.
              I'm going to put it on my list also.

                Great job Robert. This one is on my TO-DO list too. Cutting a bass is the next best thing to catching one. How about when the spring bite starts we run up to Gaston or Kerr to catch us a few?

                      Well, your reaction to the pattern is one of the biggest reasons I do what I do. Thanks a million and you did it great justice! I'll be sending 'em patterns as long as they can stand me

                        I just photocopied some patterns from the mag today - and that was one of them - it's definitely on my to-do list..

                        Very nice cutting there Robert.

                                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.

                                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...

                                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:...
