  • My latest "slightly detailed" cutting

    Well, depending on who you talk to, either "slightly detailed," "delightfully wicked," or "maddening."
    Took a break from custom orders to cut one of my patterns that I've been meaning to get done. Cut from 1/8" BB @ 11 X 14 in a stack of 5 with FD-SR #3's.
    Unfortunately, I still need to upgrade my camera, the pic doesn't show the blue velvet backer that I used to try to capture the peacock's color.

    Ooh, my head hurts.



    Actually, it reminds me of a William Morris design - take that as a compliment, Kevin .

          Others say "SICK, TWISTED, INSANE"

          You have a steady hand and keen eye my friend. not to mention patience in abundance.

            Ouch. Great job on the pattern and cut. What took longer to do, the pattern or the fretwork?

                Thanks?? I think? LOLOL.

                As far as what took longer, I think it was a wash. I keep better track of my time cutting, this one took me 17 hours to do, not exactly sure how long the pattern took to be honest, I worked on it off and on for a couple of weeks. I still ended up hand drawing the head as I was cutting it as it just didn't stick out enough.
                Needless to say, these are my favorite types of projects to cut, it's why I learned to design my own patterns in the first place. I still think you're nuts for cutting a compound ornament out of Ash Gill. At least we'll both know someone at the looney bin.

                  That's just Crazy.....

                  if I tried to do something like that, I don't know what would be thrown out of the window first...
                  the project, my saw or me....

                  BTW, it looks great!

                    All kidding aside, that is some fine work.
                    It is satisfying to use a pattern you have made yourself.
                    I sometimes think saws should have hour meters on them so we can track the time. I may have to see if I can find one.

                    Great work Kevin.

                        Hour Meter

                        Carl,

                        My saw does have an time meter on it and measures in hours and tenths. I like the feature as I can reset to zero if I wish to know the cutting time on a project. The meter runs as long as the master switch is on, not just the saw's motor so it captures the time of cutting, switching holes and changing blades. The saw is an Eclipse.

                          Kevin, that is just about as intense a project and pattern I've seen, and no mention or use of a spiral!

                          AWSOME!!!
