  • Greetings!

    Hi everyone. I just wanted to stop by and introduce myself. I did this on the carving section too, and I'm not quite sure what kind of overlap there is, but better safe than sorry...

    My name is Bob Duncan and I'm the new editorial guy at Fox Chapel. I'm working primarily for Wood Carving Illustrated, because I have wood carving experience, but I am also contributing to SSW (which I'm getting a crash course in).

    I've been woodworking as long as I can remeber, owing to a mispent youth in my father's woodshop.

    In addition to contributing to the magazines, my job is also to cruise the message boards, including this one, to get a general feel for what people are interested in, or working on. I also get to offer suggestions, refer people to out books or magazines, and handle complaints. So, if you have anything to say, just let me have it!!

    Anyway, you'll be seeing my name on the board a lot...because I love to write, and if you need anything, I'm just a click away!

      Being in a woodshop in your youth is a lot better than spending too much time out behind the woodshed!

        Hello Bob! I don't get on here as much as I like to, seems there's a thing called a job I have to attend to every day, in fact I'm at lunch now, but would like to make a suggestion. I got your new magazine on Saturday and as always, couldn't wait to get some of the projects done. Coming in your NEXT issue - christmas projects! Now don't get me wrong, Christmas is my favorite time of the year and most of my scrolsawing is 70% ornaments and christmas projects, BUT the problem is: It's already September 13 and your Christmas projects won't be out for another TWO MONTHS! Couldn't we have Christmas in July or something so we get a chance to get the latest projects in our shows this year and not next? I am already into my shows and have limited time for sawing now, which means most of your new ideas will have to wait until next year. I have this complaint with ALL magazines and catalogs. It is my feeling these patterns should be out by July so we can them into the shows for this year. But that is just my personal feeling. Well, keep up the good work, love your magazine just would like to see Christmas items sooner.

              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?...

              I am very glad to hear this and that Fox will look into the issue. Hopefully, they can do some things to try to make it easier to copy patterns.
