Take my patterns and make them better:

I received an email from Mike Moran yesterday. He wanted to share photos of one of the projects he made from a pattern I posted a few days ago. He made improvements to the design and also used beautiful hardwood to give the project a finished look. He did a wonderful job with the project and it made me want to share some thoughts.

I wanted to share the photos because I love it when you can use my pattern and improve it to make it your own and better. I design patterns almost every day. If I used high-quality hardwoods for every project I would go broke. I use a lot of plywood for making the samples. That is fine for many of the projects but for some, nice hardwood adds a lot to the finished piece. 

Mike also added new knobs to the pattern. These gave it a more professional/commercial look. 

When you see a pattern I post please take a minute to look at how it may look made from a nice hardwood. Consider changing the pattern to suit your needs. 

Today's Angel Wings Cross is a good example. The photo above is just a simulation. I did not cut the project because I know the pattern is simple enough to not have flaws. I did not need to test cut the pattern. Obviously, the photo would be more appealing if I had photographed an actually finished cross made from beautiful hardwood. 

We cut projects for many different reasons. If you are cutting a project for someone's 50th anniversary you may want to take it up a notch. If it is a gag gift for your best friend then a different material may be fine. 

My point here is that my patterns are often just a starting point for your creativity. 

Thanks, Mike for allowing me to share the photos of the project.
