  • Christmas Gifts for family

    Have followed the forum for many months now and have picked up many tips and techniques.
    This is the first time I have posted pictures on the forum so I hope they work.
    I cut these patterns in the last few days as presents for family - 6mm ply.
    The Christmas Bell pattern (Sue Mey Pattern) was going great until I broke the pattern cutting the veins in the leaf above the letter 'R'. I don't think it detracts too much but being a perfectionist I decided to keep this one on my own wall rather than gift it.
    I cut each pattern singularly and they certainly gave me plenty of practice cutting curves!
    After I took the pictures I tried my first stack cutting - the 'christmas tree with baubles pattern' (Steve Good) and it came out good so from now on it will be stack cutting all the time.
    May I also wish all forum members a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

      Very nice job on all of them. Thank you for the pictures you did a great job with those also. In future do the inner veining and fine stuff first.

              Very nice job. I never cut less than 5 and always stack cut 1/8 ornaments.

              When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                I got my notice and and I paid for another year. This year I had to make the following change.

                Fix a 10 year old bug that didn't allow Scrollmania to move to different machines.
                Rewrite the Load and Save functions so they no longer require flash. You apple users will like it.

                Hi Tony - I built a wedgie sledge pretty much immediately after you first mentioned it. It worked fine within the capabilities of my homebuilt table saw but I quickly realized that to get the best out of it I needed a new saw, hence my recent acquisition.

                Hi planeur - thanks for the reply.

                Just to be clear. I wasn't suggesting that you change your original sheriff, rather that you apply some of the ideas for future projects. Nevertheless you can see the difference in the modified version
