      Rick,
      Nice work on the pattern and the cut I can really appreciate the efforts on both It is a nice feeling to be involved in the entire project
      Good job !
      Spirals are giving me a bit of a time but I am determined to whoop them ! What are your biggest challenges with spirals and how are you overcoming them ?

          Rick, great job on both. I'd like to see the original that you had to work from. What size spirals did you use? Were they the flat end?

            Hi scrollersmoke,

            I took the liberty to move this thread from the Off Topic to the general Scroll Saw forum since it's definitely on topic.

            And nicely done too

            Regards,

              I appricate the comments. about the cat. Robert, my biggest thing about spirals is going backwards, and my eyes i think i am going blind, I tryed the letters with spirals but had to go back to my flat blades for them.
              Mike i will try and e-mail you the regular pic. i had to work from. i used 2/0 F.D. blades no they wernt the flat ones. I dont post a lot on here because it takes me for ever to type and i cant spell I get lost for words if you no what i mean guess its just hard to type redneck.

                Rick,

                For your information, spelling is not a pre-requirement to post in this place (ask my good friend Evie )

                The only thing we want is for you to share your experience.
                We don't see how long it takes you to type, and honestly I don't care: that is not what this site is about This site is about a common interest shared by all: scrolling. So don't be shy, we don't judge. We know that we all have our strong points and our weaknesses, and so be it.

                Here's hoping to hear from you often.

                Regards,

                    Rick,
                    Redneck was my first language!
                    We will all respect whatever form your posts take, and we will have a lot to learn from you. And there are no points taken off for spelling. Most of us understand anyway, and if we don't, we'll ask.
                    I think you cat is cool, and I am in awe of your ability with the spiral blades. They still get away from me - no place to "safely rest"
                    Please be sure to come back and post often - you are now a part of the family!

                          What do you mean we don't judge? Bearfretworks made fun of my lynx not too long ago, remember? He told me it looked like a bobcat with spots.

                          I still feel bad about his judgement.

                            Oh dear - an unhappy bunny.

                            Please don't hold grudges, MS. It wouldn't be in character for Bearfretworks to be malicious and I'm sure he felt he was being constructive through his criticism. If he'd been trying to be nasty, he might have said something much worse. The fact is that your lynx was a good project and well cut - everyone gave you credit for that and if someone felt the design wasn't how they'd interpret a lynx then they're not out of order to say so. Of course, such a comment can sting someone who's put a lot of time and effort into producing the picture, but the constructive way to deal with such comments is to take them on board and evaluate them objectively. It can help us to improve our techniques. I'm not familiar with how big cats look so I can't really comment on how accurate Bearfretworks criticism was. Nor would I want to - that's between you and him to discuss on the thread in question without allowing any rancour to spread over onto other threads.

                            Of course we all judge each others work on this forum as it's presented. It would be impossible not to. But I think it would be wrong to consider that judgment to be condemnation as opposed to evaluation. When people post projects on the forum they are exposing their vulnerabilities; other members appreciate this so any criticism is usually very gentle, supportive, and almost always emphasises the good points of a project. We're back to Roosevelt's man in the arena, here, aren't we? This forum is visited by people who are scrollers themselves, people who appreciate how much effort goes into each project and who have a true understanding of how much of ourselves we put into it. None of us can ever forget that, especially when we comment on other peoples work.

                            Having said all that, you'll always get the odd hooligan like Kevin who takes a perverse delight in pictures which look as if a woodworm on steroids has been set loose. Anyone who can't appreciate the beauty of simple cuts on quality material deserves all the brickbats that can be thrown .

                              Gill,

                              Did you not notice all my funny faces? This was all in jest. I did not take any of his remarks to heart. Charlie called my first portrait, an owl, a duck. I didn't think it looked like a duck, did it? Even though Barry was right about my lynx. I found the pattern and emailed it to my customer and she loved it. I never took the time to compare it to the real thing. Barry taught me something here and I appreciated it.

                              In summary, I'm having a good time here. Throw it at me and I'll throw it right back. Some might even stick. I can handle it. Come on, bring it on.

                                I saw a "practice pattern" to learn how to operate my saw. I decided to print out what I thought was a fairly simple pattern that would cover all the cuts and possibly have something at the end. Please tell me that the pattern lines are really just suggestions. Improvisation is acceptable....

                                Those are great! I would be interested in seeing how you box them.

                                BTW, Everclear is banned in some states but still available in others. I also recently saw another brand of 190 proof at the local ABC store here in Gibsonville, NC. (I did a quick Google and found the brand is Diesel)
