Question movin the compound cut pattern?

the “beginner”, or the ‘stranger’ that stays on FB more than here, would appreciate a lil help….puuuhhhhhlllllleeeeeeeeeezzzzzzzzzzeeeee? yesterday, i did my first ever compound cut ornament, it turned out pretty good…today i did another and it also turned out ok….when i cut the outside pattern and i get to where i have to cut the part that has the pattern for the other cut side, i seem to be havin a prob on the edge…is it at all possible i can move the pattern over a smigin to get it away from the edge, in order to keep from cuttin the one side of the pattern off my wood? do ya’ll understand what i’m sayin?

here is a pic of the one i cut yesterday…

just updated, here is a pic of the ornament that gave me a small fit, due to the lines bein so close to the edge

Yea, I've fudge it a tad myself without a disaster, but do it before you start cutting the project. I've cut patterns from Keaner book, I forgot his first name, but he drew patterns without a dotted center line, so you have to just center it the best way you can. another option is to print out the pattern at 90, or 95%, so it will fit your wood better. Compounds are so cool to cut, and you did a sweeeet job on your project.

WD,
Had the perfect answer for your question. You did a nice job on the ornament.

Very nice cutting on the ornament. When I cut them I use a little wider and thicker piece of wood just in case I get to close the the side...seems to work OK for me.

i did the one today at 90% and it all went well til i got to the side where i almost lost the other side pattern….i got-r-done, but it was tuff, i can cut the wood to size with the table saw, since i’m usin pine, it’s easy to saw thru…it just bothered me as to why i cut thru the other pattern side of the project

thanx for your help folks, muches appreciated

Make sure you have it locked well in your holder,If it moves after you cut the frist side you'll lose it. Lance

Excellent job on the ornament. Either using a slightly larger piece of wood or slightly shrinking the size of the pattern when printing it out works as well.

Cutting through the pattern issue on other side. This has happened to me when I did not start my initial cut from the top or bottom. If you have/want to start your cut on a "side wall" you must be careful that your "opposite side" pattern is facing you.

Just another thought Tim, did you check to see if your table is 90° to the tightened blade before starting?
VERY IMPORTANT.
