  • My F-15 pattern

    started scrolling my F-15 pattern today this is what I got done so far and its very dicey I am going to have to modify the pattern some as you'll see from the pictures, the tail is just way to fragile around the exhaust area and I realized to late the one part of the tail has 0nly 1 tiny holding part, I cut it from 1/4 baltic birch instaed of 1/8 as I wanted to give it some extra strength but I think it would look better with the 1/8 as I think it has to much depth in the cut out areas

      Nothing ventured, nothing gained. I'm sure it's going to be spectacular when it's finished.

        You may already know this but here 'tis anyway.

        Daryl, a word of caution regarding your pattern. I can almost duplicate it by copying the posted image into my graphics program. If you want to protect your work, you need to put a little more slant when you photograph the pattern to make it more difficult to simply copy.

        The weak areas you point out may be acceptable if cut properly. By that I mean carefully planning where to cut first. Cutting around the weak point first can relieve stress and vibration on that area when cutting the remainder of that area. The final cutting can be (should be) glued to a backer that will provide extra stability. Sometimes you may need to sacrifice part of the image to increase stability of the cutting. You might consider bringing the left side of the pattern in to add a bridge to the lower most tail fin.

          Lookin pretty awesome, already printed out a copy for myself !

          Kidding of course. I like the moon in the background. I spent a few minutes thinking of any changes or add ons you should do, but can't think of anything. Seems perfect just the way it is!

            It's looking good, Daryl but do you remember someone saying in the previous thread? "That tail section still looks potentially tricky to cut though" ...

            I'm sure you'll be able to sort it out though - it's a great pattern.

                It's an awesome pattern. Don't forget to copyright it!! Don't want to make anyone else money when it should be yours.

                  He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

                  Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

                  I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

                  You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
