I downloaded the 2019 Christmas Ornament after watching your webinar last Tuesday evening.
Here is my question. Once I apply the pattern to my 1/2 inch bass blank, can I carve it on the 12 inch blank and then cut around the ornament with my scroll saw once all the carving is done? I had the thought that as a beginner, having the full board to support my tripod 60 degree angle would be an advantage. What are your thoughts?
Good thoughts, Neil. I’ll be carving about 30 of these ornaments in the months ahead and I plan on cutting them out first. Most years I’ll carve them on the full board first. But as Neil mentioned, this year I’ll carve them already cut out so I can easily get the low angle with my knife carving the Old World Style.
