  • Do I need more frets?

    I got this pattern from CWC mag March 2010. It showed the wolfs on a end cut of wood standing with most of the wood cut from around them.
    The piece of wood I had was not wide enough to do this so I cut up the pattern to make it work.
    The question is do I (I think I do) need to "open" up the area around the wolfs to see them better? If so where would you all say I need to do this. Around the heads, back ect. I am quite new to this hobbie.
    I have allready diped it into BLO, walnut. Thanks for the help!

    I like it the way it is now, but you could play with it a bit with Gimp or Inkscape and perhaps come up with something like this. That is a beautiful piece of wood!

      I think I'd open up around the one on the right just a little but I'm glad you have to make that decision and not me. It is a great piece of wood and you did a great job a cutting it. Post again if you do anything else to it.

        Looks great to me! Sweet piece of wood! I say leave it alone and make your next piece!

          Beautiful piece either way. My preference would be to open it but not much. 1/4 - 5/15".
          You made me drool over that piece of wood.

            Just my opinion but, I would open it up on the back and face of each wolf.
            The original pattern calls for almost the entire left side of the wood to be

              Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
              That is...

              The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

              Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

              Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

              Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.
