          Those are cool -- I really like how the bows are done so they look like real ribbons!

                  For anyone interested.
                  The bows are easy to make. The pattern is originally part of a pattern frome Steve Good.
                  These were cut from some scrap 3/8 3 ply from the trash. It worked but I recommend a better quality ply like BB
                  Lots of possibilities.
                  I'm looking forward to seeing different variations of these bows.

                  ENJOY

                    Thanks a lot Rob for the pattern and the how to, but one more question, how big is it? I printed it out and it's about 13.5 cm (5.31") is that too big for 3/8" wood?

                      You can size them to whatever size you need. I've made them down to about 3/4" about 19MM for earrings. At that size I don't double cut the loops.
                      You don't have to use plywood but it gives you good ribbon like stripes.

                          I have made a number of those Harvey puzzles. They are a lot of fun. You really need to be patient and let the blade cut. Even the slightest pressure can ruin your puzzle piece fit. My go to is a Pegas #3 MGT....

                          Congrats on your pending retirement and gaining a new daughter. I have been retired close to 6 years now and I have no idea where the time went. Yes retirement will mean some adjustment but I can tell you it is the best job I have ever had. By the way. If you think retirement means unlimited shop...
