    I have several bowls that I have turned a few are natural edge or have distorted a bit over time and I have not been able to finish the bottoms to my satisfaction.
    I have had a vacuum chuck for many years but getting the bowl centered is always a challenge. So I bought this setup https://ww...

    Most of the books have the page size pattern with a scaling factor on the page. I am fine with that. Then there is the issue of the less computer literate who will have no clue about scaling or have the resources to do so.

    The first time that I saw the small reindeer cut and were I got the pattern was at my very first Scrollsaw picnic at Fox Chapel publishing back in 2005. There was a guy outside that was cutting them on a treadle saw. I don't remember his name.

    As Jim explained, but there are lots of different mediums used for removing rust or old finishes. Crushed walnut shells, all types of sand abrasives, glass beads, We used this a great deal at work. I had my fiberglass car stripped with plastic beads. All of it needs to be used by someone that knows...

    If you chose to use matt board I would use D hangers like Denny with a screw that does through the matt and into the wood.

    Well if you decide to take in Long Long Island let me know. We live in a quaint Village , Bellport , it is about 70 miles east of Manhattan.
    The east end is beautiful but crazy busy this time of the year. How will you be traveling?

    That is really well done, especially considering the wood and thickness. Pine has such a variation in the grain density, the blade loves to track along the soft stuff. Also the saw has to be perfectly aligned and the pushing sideways is a tendency I still fight after 17 years of cutting.
