    Hi guys: I have a simple question I think. when you are working on a project and you have a hole to drill but the hole itself is only 1/16" do you just drill the hole or do you pass it up? if you do drill it do you then shape it with a scroll file so that is does not look drilled?

    PS does anybody do shadeing on a picture I have a picture that I would like to scroll but I am not good at shading that is why I use patterns.

    Try using just your saw blade to shave the cut so that the entry hole is not so noticable. HTH

      For me, it depends I guess. If the pattern shows a 1/16th inch round hole, then yes, I'd simply drill it and be done with it. If its a 1/16th inch hole, but not round, or exacting, I will use a smaller drillbit and cut it to its required shape with a blade. As for the pattern help, theres many here that will be able to help you with that Im sure,but I cant. Dale

          I'm not exactly sure what it is you're looking for based on your post. If it's a pattern you need from a pic, don't hesitate to email the original pic to me at [email protected] and I'd be more than happy to try and help you out. Hopefully the original pic has enough detail/shading to put something together for you.

                I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

                I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

                First off how thick is the board you cut?
                When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
                that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
                for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

                I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

                Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

                Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it)....to make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...
