        Robert, that's a great design and cutting. I assume that's a swallowtail?
        BTW, isn't the butterfly off center, horizontally?

        It's nice to see you back. You've been kinda scarce.

                  Excellent job on pattern design and cutting.
                  I also like the colour behind the flowers.

                    Thanx for the kind words everyone . I am pretty happy with this one . Time has not been my friend lately I work for Home Depot Supply and if you read or watch the news at all you know what a tough time they're going through. Well that trickles right down the ranks unfortunately . I try to keep up with my online family though, and sometimes taking 5 minutes to read the posts here makes all the difference in my sanity I hope to find more time to be active soon

                    Mike the placement is on purpose. I had it centered originally and to my mind's eye it just looked better moved up with more wood exposed on the bottom

                    Thanx again everyone guys are often the brightest spot in my otherwise frustrating days of late

                      That is very nice Robert! Great job all around.

                      What you've chosen to cut, chosen to leave is a wonderful balance. You should be very proud of this piece.

                      Take care

                        nice job. I agree with your moving the centering. It has to look good to you artistically, which I believe is lacking in alot of pattern work. make the mind's eye do the work! Les-jr

                                I have made a number of those Harvey puzzles. They are a lot of fun. You really need to be patient and let the blade cut. Even the slightest pressure can ruin your puzzle piece fit. My go to is a Pegas #3 MGT....

                                Congrats on your pending retirement and gaining a new daughter. I have been retired close to 6 years now and I have no idea where the time went. Yes retirement will mean some adjustment but I can tell you it is the best job I have ever had. By the way. If you think retirement means unlimited shop...

                                Thanks to all for the kind comments.

                                Norma and I are still growing into our 'new' home but are really happy that we got this work done and everyone who has seen the transformation have been wowed.

                                From my side I'm really pleased with how my kitchen extension idea worked out....
