    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.

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

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    They have though of this, and I own them. Pretty interesting to see the vendors from the early days, and see how the pattern designers improved their craft over the years. Also, there was a lot of Corian and stuff in the early issues.

    Here is a quick way to get to these: https://foxch...

    Hi, Has the magazine ever thought of or ever done a series of CD's (not sure if CD's are still the thing) of all the magazines published? I would purchase it! National Geographic did that, a real handy resource to have.

    I did some scroll sawing successfully with a cheap Sears pin scroll saw back in the early '90s and enjoyed it because I didn't know any better! (I was living in Japan at the time and there was no internet to have access to people who knew.) So, I used what I had. Then LOML bought me a DeWalt scroll...
