  • Aligning Odd-shaped cuts

    I just finished a gift (see my Ga Tech Cutting post in the Bragging Section) that is in the shape of the state of Georgia. I wanted to frame it so aligning it on the backing with symetry was important. I accomplished this by preserving the outer waste material as one piece. I aligned the waste against the backing and slipped the glued cutting into it like one big puzzle piece. I've done the same for small drop-outs by, again, saving the outer piece.

      I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...

      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...
