    Daryl you may well be retired before that project gets complete, you have alot of patience my friend.

    Sadly as a side note I think Kevin is laughing at anyone who tries to finish this pattern in one lifetime. What Kevin didn't tell you in the SSW article was that he used child labor from Sri Lanka to actually cut it.


    Looks good and good luck with that!

        Ooops, I thought for sure it was the pattern Kevin had in the latest SSW (nope no cheetah cubs there), back to my beer.

          Daryl, its coming along nicely, and I cant even see that one little oops you made, so thats a good sign. I am curious though, there are a few small sections that you skipped over, and was wondering , are they something you wont be cutting out? If so, any particular reason, other then to keep your sanity of course, and if you are planning on doing them, why did you pass them in the normal rotation? Thanks, looking good., Dale

            just one word SANITY actually I am concerned with some of them I have made several miss cuts thankfully with this pattern you can't see them its so easy to make an error, a cough or a sneeze ect... is all it takes

              I have the same DVD and pattern. When you do something of this magnitude it is actually easier to divide the pattern up into sections. You drill, then cut, aha, that is finished, NEXT. Every time you finish a section you have accomplished something and it is a lot different than saying "Well, the first 100 are finished, weee, how many more to go???" More of a mineset than anything else. I am looking forward to doing this in a piece of Black walnut I got the other day.

                Just Wondering...

                Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

                With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

                I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

                Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

                I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

                If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...

                Hi Linda, great find...I think.

                Please keep us up to date with any information you receive. I would really like to get into this, but my computer skills are almost nonexistent, I need something that a 74 year old air head 🙄 can figure out. Thanks for sharing.
