    Can anyone help me out with this problem, after making my mum's mothers day present my wife said she would like something similar but instead of a flower in the middle of a plate she wants something Oriental. I remember seeing somewhere an intarsia oriental boy kneeling with a bowl of rice in his hands but for the life of me i can't remember where, i have searched but up until now without success, so does anyone remember seeing this and where can i get the pattern.

    I never saw anything like that before, but what first came to mind for me was a yin-yang symbol. They are so easy to customize with other symbols also.

      I've never seen that one before. It wouldn't be hard to find some chinese characters or symbols and do one with that- if she likes that idea.

        What about cherry blossoms, or Coi fish accompanied by characters for mother?

          Thanks for the replies folk, i know my wife would be happy with any kind of oriental work but i know that the piece i saw would be the best to do for her. Ah well, i'll just have to keep searching through the internet, i have got till june to do it for her birthday, so the search continues.

            Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
            That is...

            The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

            Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

            Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

            Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

            Now,...
