      I almost always use a #7 blade. If you're going to use western red cedar, a #5 would be ok too. As far a transferring the pattern, I've found the easiest is cut out the pattern pieces. Put packing tape on the wood and spray adhesive on the back of the pattern. Stick pattern to packing tape that is on the wood.

        I use a FD #5 Polar most of the time.
        for pattern transfer, I use 1 copy of the pattern. Cut your first piece out, then move the pattern to your next piece of wood. Follow the cut line where you cut the first piece, then continue cutting the rest of the second piece. Continue this until it's cut.

        I like the mono-chronic look you have on your posted pic.

          I use FD Polar # 7 and #9 to cut mine. I make my wood 3/8" thick and if I can, I stack cut the pieces which will ensure a perfect fit.

              Twenty years in electronics retail and here is a quick dirty way to tell the difference:
              a fast blow will only have the wire element. Slow blow almost always has some extra structure that will be left behind after the fuse blows.
              Secondly, there is a series of three letter engraved on one...

              They look like David Spielmann's Designs to me. I will check my library this evening, but I bet you already that they are from one of his pattern books.

              Thanks all - you folks do wonders for my ego with your comments and importantly fire me up to keep trying new things

              Scott - once this Covid situation has passed I'll definitely be heading up to NC. I'm tentatively thinking late spring/early summer next year. I am not sure just what pointers...

              I found this information on fuses in general.

              Blowing type. Fast-blow fuses will blow as soon as the current reaches the fuse's amperage rating, while slow-blow fuses are designed to tolerate a large number of startup surges and modest short-term overloads without blowing.
