    I enlarge and shrink patterns all time. I use rapid resizer. I did locate some scrap wood that would be perfect for the smaller size. I also mad some of the nativity Steve had a week ago. I’m taking stuff to the market for feedback. Of the 11 ornaments I took last week I came home with 3. Guess you would call that good feedback.

    Very nice and thank you for sharing. Finishing old projects can actually be rewarding in a very different kind of way. Can't wait to see!

Since I’m not doing cardholders this year, we had lots of pieces taped up and I cut some last night out of 1/8” cherry. They came out nice but very fragile. They will be my family ornament this year. I also cut the middle size out of cherry with the white lamb. I am changing to the white background. They are also going on my table at the market.
    The entire ornament is 3 1/4" tall and 2 1/4" wide. The Holy Family figures are 2 1/2" tall by 2" wide. Of course you and reduce or enlarge to fit the stock you do have prepared.

    It came from Steve Good. Search for Mother and Child Segmentation.

    Back in the saddle again

    I recently posted that I was having a hard time getting back into my shop. My head and heart were just not in it. Well I am slowly making progress. Anyway yesterday I finished these two Steve Good projects. The nativity ornaments are from his newsletter one day last week. The backing is 1/4" maple plywood. The holy family is made of cherry and the sheep is bass wood. The stand up nativity is made of walnut. It is actually segmentation and each piece is shaped and contoured by sanding like you would do for intarsia. That project was started last winter and was one of several unfinished projects I had sitting. Now to tackle some of my started intarsia projects.

    Scott, I was referring to her pms to Bill Wilson and Quartz. They posted her reply by pms instead of on here.
    Would be nice Quartz. I asked got Bob to put the issue next tp patterns and he said something about real estate. He found a way to do it and didn’t lose any real estate. Guess they don’t...

    I would be pleased if FC at least did a trial of printing A pattern on regular sized text and also providing a scale up factor. Their resistance to do anything if a real pain. It was a similar lack of action with the website that resulted in lost viewers.

    I think Kelly did that because I wrote a letter to the editor complaining about an article in the last addition. It was the article about staying connected online and it didn't mention the FC forum....

    The fastest I've ever seen one of those 3d deer cuts was by Rick Hutcheson. That man was super fast when we was working the shows.

    Here he is much more recently, and a bit slower: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riPDY6M-Lv8

    Here is the pattern on Ricks' site: http://www....
