      Great job Robert! I bet that signature was quite the challenge.

              Very nicely done, Robert. Great pattern and a nice smooth oval round it ...

                      Thanx for the kind words everyone
                      Kevin, the sig was indeed a challenge but not nearly as challenging as cutting that oval with a spiral ! Ian gave me credit for a smooth cut on it , but if you look closely it has it's share of " jiggles "
                      Better next time perhaps

                          I can see faint jiggles if I stick my nose about 6" from the screen - as my sister says "a man on a galloping horse wouldn't notice it" It still looks great though ..

                          I suspect that from normal viewing distance it wouldn't show though - and the centre of attention is the portait itself

                          I sometimes wonder if we're sometimes too self-critical of things we've done - and I'm as guilty of it as anyone - I always seem to have one niggling little bit on a cutting I'm not 100% happy with - but I guess that's what keeps us improving ..

                            Boredom has probably lead to many a great idea, invention, etc. throughout life. I too like this concept of mixer pieces storage.

                            There are a lot of good points brought up here. Some may be easy to correct, others not so much. As far as Fox Chapel replying to this thread, I am trying to imagine a response that would not have made at least some people upset.

                            As far as the pattern size in the books, I believe the physical...

                            I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

                            John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

                            Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                            I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...
