Default Tissue Boxes 2

Last spring I aquired a Mathias Wandel pantograph. I have been trying to learn how to use it. This is my first attempt at a project.

Thanks guys, I didn't think it was that good,I was afraid i was going to mess up some, but lucked out and used them all.

All these were done freehand ,just tracing over the pattern. The pantograph is set at 50% size so any wavering doesn't show badly. also by doing flowers and leaves and such a little deviation from the pattern doesn't show. one thing I found while practicing was to not stop just keep going, if I stop I get a divot, and if I go back over a cut it really messes it up because I can't retrace my steps.
Setting the correct depth for the cutter bit is important too. I am using a 15 degree sign bit from MLCS I tried the 30 and 60 degree bits ,but for what I am doing they cut too wide and wipe out the close detail. They work good for lettering. But I think that templates would be better for lettering than freehand.

John, I am not proficient enough in computers and programing to do the CNC thing. And I leave that for you to keep turning out those beautiful pieces.

Herb

You're selling yourself short, Herb. I think they look great.

I got to see these before Herb made the boxes. He demonstrated his technique at our woodworkers association. He is selling himself short. I watched him cut a demo and it does take a steady hand. The size reduction of the pantograph helps but it is fun to see. Great job Herb.

You are the computer - programed perfectly
The patterns make the boxes.

You have inspired me to try to reassemble dads oldpantograph. After several moves I will be lucky to find all the parts. . .
