    Looks great so far Trout. I was wondering if you could use the screw hole plugs(buttons) for the grapes. They would have to be set in the wood though. Just a thought. Yours look great though, just thought it would cut the time it takes to shape them. Lets see it when you finish it.

    Trout--that should really look great when you're finished. Please post pix.

    Regarding the octagon and end grain, for a quick solution, check out the glue-up for the footed candy dish in the bowl book. It adds an extra touch of color, and you can just cut the octagon from one piece of wood.

    these grapes took a toll on my finger tips....
    this stuff isn't glued on yet so that's why they look a little crooked...



    I can't post this one up on Facebook, the kids will see it..
    one of them will be getting this as a Christmas gift...

    alright just this one.....

    I didn't like the idea of just cutting out an octagon base because I would have at least 2 sides with end grain showing so I went with this idea....
    if I put felt on the bottom you wont see those small gaps...
    I also mitered the top....



    I had all last week off but it was my turn to be on call so I spent a lot of time chasing contractors around our school district.
    it cut into my shop time but I did make some good Christmas money!!

    started a topic wine caddy

    wine caddy

    you would of thought this would be a in and out project....
    I've been working on this wine caddy for 5 day's now and it's turned into quite a project. it sure would be nice if the written instructions would line up with the drawings! most everything had to be re-work eather by me not liking things or trying to get everything to fit!

    I still have 1 more day's to complete it....

    lessons learned....
    make sure wood is not warped and start off with clean cuts edges before cutting! this is how the project started out wrong!

    this is a trial run, the next one will be for a charity auction.

    Perhaps, we could hear from Fox. Maybe they could try some things and see if it makes things better. Or, they can just keep doing the things the same way.

    This is a case were the publisher can't win.

    I personally like the patterns to be printed at the artist's intended size if at all possible. Let me decide to reduce or enlarge. If I don't have the equipment to make a copy at 100%, that's my problem not the publishers. We all have our own...

    The original pattern was 7 1/2 x 13 1/4.. The book has no mention of resizing on all but one page. My guess the magazine and the book side of fox has no one who scrolls.. the last books have shown that. enlarged I had to use a #1 blade for many cuts. If I had just copied the pattern in its silver...

    I think he is talking about the size of the patterns lately and extra steps needed to copy and resize them. It took me an hour to copy the fish from the latest issue with all the folding, cutting to match, tape, repeat. If it had been letter or legal size, I could have copied and resize with less hassle....

    IDK? I remember that Ben sold Pegas blades, but the label on this package just says "Ben's Blades, Ultra Thin Puzzle Blade". When Denny started selling Pegas blades I asked him and he told me Pegas doesn't sell a specific "puzzle" blade. The 2/0 might be their answer....
