      Jerry, you did a good job with a good pattern. Thumbs up to both of you.

        That's smashing. The design illustrates the breed's feathering in a way that artists are rarely able to portray. To do it with a saw takes a great deal of talent on the part of both the pattern designer and the cutter.

        There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

          Thanks so much for bringing that to life Jerry! You did an outstanding job cutting it. Without your cut it's just lines on paper. I'm always humbled when someone finds on of my patterns worthy of their time and materials.

            Well done indeed Jerry! It's so good to see someone able to step up to the plate and hit a home run off Kevin's pitch. Great team work!!!!! Thanks for sharing the progress and final pic. I guess I'd better run over to Kevin's site and get a copy before he pulls the pattern. LOL Now that it's cut and looks so good he'll want to charge $$ for it!! ROTF

                        Thanks all,I think it was the really close inside cuts that pulled me to it. I love a challenge and some of those cuts are really close,Thanks for the pattern Kevin I had a lot of fun cutting it.(Note to anyone cutting this) I cut all of the tiny holes first then moved on to the ones that were a little bigger and so on,When cutting the ones that have really close edges I changed the blade after everyone of the bigger inside cuts. This makes for a lot less drag on the cut, I did keep the used blades as they are still good. there are somewhere around 126 cuts. Thanks again for all the kind words. Jerry/Kevin

                            With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it. And I have used it over the years. A couple of months ago, While I was contemplating cleaning, I looked at the machine and decided to finish...

                            I do remember that 2011 Wow, you were gutsy building that then, CNC was just coming into the home environment. Are you still using the one you built?

                            I dropped my subscription long ago, so maybe I should not chime in, but I dropped it mostly due to the pattern pull out.

                            I do not have a flat bed scanner, nor do I want one, so that is my issue.

                            But the result is that if I cut a pattern to scan, I have also cut the parts of...

                            +1 on NC Scroller's suggestions. I would add that on appropriate patterns stop using the grey as it would make it easier to copy.

                            It says a lot if Fox Publishing does not comment on an issue like this. Even if they said they are aware that people have concerns and are looking into it...
