  • A source for photos for pattern designing

    I just had a request for a portrait of a smooth fox terrier. This is a fairly rare breed so of course, none of the free pattern sites had one. My request for one didn't turn up anything either. I decided to see if I could find a decent photo online and make the pattern myself. If any of you have attempted this, you already know that most web photos are at such a low resolution that it's almost impossible to utilize them. However, the Wikipedia encyclopdia has photos of probably anything needed and when enlarged, they actually have a high enough resolution to be able to work with them. Just do a google search for wikipedia encyclopdia and then search for the subject.

    Just thought I would send this info along, if any body is interested.

    I guess I’m just impulsive. Had I thought like Bruce, I would never had bought my brand new ‘69 cougar I saw in the showroom when I drove by it, went in and bought. Or the panther snowmobile a few months later. Didn’t know I needed one until I saw it. Living in the Poconos I got a lot of fun...

    i always research, read reviews, living on SS Income and paying rent, there's very little spending money. The only way I get money to buy things, is selling something I already own. I can't take a chance of buying something and being unhappy with it.

    I bought a few new pieces of equipment last year. I researched the tar out of them. Kept putting it off. Debating. Convincing myself they were pure "wants", and definitely not needs. I got impulsive and then ordered a couple of things. Nearly cancelled the orders too, since they were...

    I’m doing what’s on the cover of Woodworks and Crafts, Sept 2004, for a special customer. I’m going to use 1/2” wood and back with verigated grays for the background. I really love working with White oak and other quarter sawn wood. It makes beautiful baskets.

    Now that you mention it Rolf, he just said something about a Nova! Woodcraft doesn’t have the Rikon in stock but it is free delivery to the store, which isn’t too far from us. Next week, he will still be deciding.
    Scott, I’m with you. Sure is easy, and fun, spending their inheritance. Stay...
