        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.

          Nicely done. And from your own original pattern, too. I have GOT to get moving!

                  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

                                Understandable for your baskets Betty, but in my experience 1/4” solid wood for puzzles tends to not hold up very well. Especially the small locks....

                                Should read planer Died yesterday. But Bruce got out his instruction book and google and got it apart. Needs new belt, plastic cover and pulley gear. Ordered from eBay and should have by Monday. Of course all work on dough boards stopped. $55 is much cheaper than a new planer. Oh well, on to the next...

                                My customers won’t buy anything cut from plywood. I’ve spoiled them. I use poplar for all my kid puzzles. With Bruce volunteering at the County Park antique sawmill, I have an endless supply of poplar. My current batch is green and white striped. I make cases for all my puzzles and back them with...

                                I have enough of that. I bought 3 sheets of 1/8 and 1/4 a few months back. Bruce was at the sawmill yesterday and the superintendent of the Park told them they were getting over 50 oak trees from various county parks. The trees have sort of bug that is killing them . They will be quarantining them in...
