Hi Steve,
Attached is a pattern I made that builds off one that you put on the web. A family member loves West Highland White Terriers so that is what I hope the dog looks like. I made it using Autodesk AutoSketch. It was not easy or fast like I see you do with CorelDraw X3. I tried using InkScape and was almost done after about 1 hour of trial and error. Unfortunately I forgot what I used to preach to my drafters.......save your drawing frequently. InkScape developed a fatal error and shut down and I lost everything. I tried to recreate it and InkScape shut down 2 more times. I decided it is too unstable to use.
I manually traced a photo of the dog in AutoSketch and then drew the rest of the pattern around the trace. I think it took me a couple of hours. Way too much effort compared to what I think you would be able to do in Corel.
Consequently I went out and bought CorelDraw X3 Student and Teachers and paid $129.00 plus tax at Fry's Electronics; there is a store in Phoenix. They don't require verification of student or teacher status. It is available for the same price on www.frys.com .
I haven't broken the shrink-wrap yet but the box reads just like the upgrade version so I believe it is the full version. I'll let you know if it is a reduced version. Your audience may be interested. The salesman says everybody buys the student version. Go figure.
I enjoyed your last tutorial and hope to be able to duplicate it soon.
Regards,
Dick

Thanks Dick. Great info about Frys. Keep us posted on your experience with the student teacher version.

Hi Steve

I've attached 2 pictures of your patterns that I've completed.

The bowl is made of Qeensland Maple and New Guinea Rosewood.

The golfer is Qeensland Maple.
I had to be very careful with golfclub and the flagpole as they are very thin, I may make them
a little thicker next time to make them a bit stronger.

thanks for the patterns they were a lot of fun to make.



Spring these are very nicely executed and the wood is absolutely beautiful. Thanks for sharing the pictures and the comments about the golfer pattern should be helpful to others. Thanks.

Flying Dutchman. The blades recommended by Steve Good

Why do I recommend the Flying Dutchman blades? I could say they are high quality, sharp and consistent. That would be a good reason. I could say the price per blade is great and that would be an excellent reason. Those are the reasons I buy them but I recommend them because I like doing business with Mike at Mike's Workshop. When I send a reader of the Scrollsaw Workshop to Mike he takes care of them. That makes me look good and keeps my readers coming back.
