    I tried to get into your site twice, JD - both times it wouldn't respond. I'm really interested in seeing what a 'toothpick' carving is!! And MORE interested in how you've done a website about it without pictures!

        I also ran the search and got to see a few of the photos of carved toothpicks. They are definitly a challenge to do, but done they are! Very inventive material.

                  I would suggest for such small items that you might be better off if you can find a friend with a good 35mm camera with a macro lens, a tripod, and a cable release. The film can be developed and put on a disk so you can upload the pics to your computer and site. I am thinking about dusting off my Minolta and using it for pics since I took Christmas pics with both it and the digital and the pictures on disk from the 35mm are far superior.

                          You folks are too easily impressed. :

                          I can carve a toothpick chain out of a 1in x 1in x 3 ft long piece of basswood. Then take a picture and superimpose a penny next to it. (could work) :-/

                          I do have a friend who carved several toothpics and matchsticks into chains. He sharpened dental instruments into chisels and had more patience than I have.

                          I did try to make pliers from wood kitchen matches once, without success, but I used up a whole box of matches before I gave up.

                              JD,
                              I don't know if this will work for you but you might want to try and scan your toothpick carvings on a flatbed scanner.

                              I would love to see them. Let us know when you get pictures.

                                I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

                                John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

                                Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

                                I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

                                This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

                                I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

                                Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

                                How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...
