  • 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.

                Among other things. I was surprised to see 190 proof. Everclear tops out at 150 proof here in NC, but I have seen it at 190 in Georgia.

                What was the old college recipe? Equal parts Hawaiian Punch and Everclear? You pour it into Mayo jars, put the lids on and store in the original boxes....

                And now for the questions
                by old fa_t
                I saw a "practice pattern" to learn how to operate my saw. I decided to print out what I thought was a fairly simple pattern that would cover all the cuts and possibly have something at the end. Please tell me that the pattern lines are really just suggestions. Improvisation is acceptable....

                Those are great! I would be interested in seeing how you box them.

                BTW, Everclear is banned in some states but still available in others. I also recently saw another brand of 190 proof at the local ABC store here in Gibsonville, NC. (I did a quick Google and found the brand is Diesel)
