  • 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.

                  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...

                  As far as the Incra miter gauge, if you keep it 1/4 inch away you will be fine, but you will have to adjust it when doing angle cuts, it’s a great miter gauge, RJ...

                  Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
                  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:...

                  Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...
