  • A New Portrait of Mother & Father

    Hi Everyone I have this portrait out of cherry in my gallery. But that one was for Mother. This one out of maple with the treebark looking frame is mine. Any comments or suggestions on the portrait and especially the frame are welcomed. Steve

        Thanks for the kind remarks. Sharon it would be nice to do my woodworking all of the time instead of making cabinets at a factory. Since Mom and Dad and Grandad are done I think Grandma will be next. Happy Holidays Everyone, Steve

            Nicely done, Steve. I like the contrast using the 'bark' frame best.

              Thanks for the votes of confidence. I was playing with my dremel and some high speed cutters to achieve that look on the frame. It gives a different look and high contrast to the maple. Steve

                  I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

                  John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

                  Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                  I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

                  This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                  I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                  Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                  How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...
