  • Intertwined Circle Pattern

    After I cut this pattern, I started to wonder what it would look like if I "Freed" the pattern from the outside coin. I don't know if it is better or not, but I like it. I pictured the before and after.
    (I tried a marathon session to try to finish most of this in one session, so the cutting started getting a little sloppy as I fatigued and started to hurt. If I ever do it again, I'll cut it over days instead of hours.

    There are 62 cuts in the initial design and cut on an Eisenhower. This is somewhat of an optical illusion, your eye might immediately see flowers inside of circles, but if you looks closely, the whole pattern is just interwoven circles.

    Gee, I wish my sloppy cutting looked like yours. 😁. I love the intricacy of the design, and admire your constant pushing the envelope. Truly a treat for the eyes.

      You've outdone yourself again, Randy. That's a really nice cutting job. Like Carole, I wish I was as sloppy as you.

        Looking good Randy! Yeah I don't see anything there I would consider sloppy. I can tell you I don't believe my old eyes and hands could do what you do. Thanks for showing us.

          Very nice work and I don't see anything sloppy about it. Not sure which version I like better. I don't think you can go wrong with either one.
          Thanks for sharing.

            That is amazing. I can't imagine cutting something so intricate.

                    Hi Larry and welcome to the group. You have an impressive resume and give solid proof that not all good education must be obtained in a college setting. Desire and hard work play a big part no matter the path. Your woodworking is impressive. Thanks for sharing your story and some pictures. I hope...

                    About 40 years ago, I had about 1/2 inch of my right thumb cut off with a fork lift accident (hand in the wrong place). If anyone asked what happened when my girls (anywhere from age 6 to teenagers) were around, they always replied: " He stuck his thumb up his nose and a bugger bit it off!"...
