  • Altering Patterns

    How do you all find to be the best way to alter patterns? I have done a few changes in the past but I have to change the pattern in SSW with the boxers. The boxers owned by the ones I makeing the slab for does not have the pointy ears but lie down beside thier head. A bit of a change but makes a big difference in the appearence. Any ideas??

    When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

    I would photocopy then use whiteout on the parts you want changing.
    do the touch up and photocopy again.

    You could also scan the image and modify it electronically.

    I like to scan patterns when I can so I can print them off when I need them.

      I scan it and then edit it using Paint Shop Pro or equivalent software. It allows you to do whatever you want.
      Then just print it out.

        Chuck,
        If you are computer- or money- challenged, you can photocopy the pattern, and use tracing paper or vellum over it - trace the parts you want to keep - then, using another piece of tracing paper - fool around with your alterations 'til you're happy - then trace the whole shebang together, and you've got it. If this isn't clear, I could try again, maybe.

              He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

              Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

              I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...
