  • Quilt assembly

    Finally getting around to it...hopefully...

    I decided to get 1/4" square dowels to put between the squares. I wanted something that would frame the squares, but would look good with the varying thicknesses. I've got a honey-amber analine dye to review for the magazine, so I thought that would be a good, neutral color to use.

    Sound like a plan to you all?

    Hey Bob,

    I did my share of the project, now it's your turn.

    Since I don't have the pieces in front of me I don't know what would look good, so I will trust your jugement on this.

    Whatever you feel will make it look good... Go for it.

    Your friend,
    Marcel

      That is a great idea Bob.
      Sounds like you have your work cut out for yourself!

      Good luck

            Six - HUNDRED???
            I certainly hope you are stack cutting them. Even so,,, wow!
            Perhaps you could send them out as Christmas ornaments - just cut about 12 more.
            Good cutting, kid. Now, get back to work!! (sounds of chains attaching you to your tools)

              Bob,

              Is that another way of saying that Fox-Chapel is hiring?



              (Good luck to you)

                    Bob they keep you out of trouble I see. I like reading your feed back on behind the scene work you and your team does. It makes me applicate more the magazine and wanting more of it knowing all the works that goes into it.

                                Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                                Now,...

                                It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                                Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
