Default Rolf's cutting of Rose plaque

Rolf says: "I finally finished the test cut of the roses for you. Actual saw time was about 2 hours - add to that blade changes pattern mounting etc.

I did 3 layers of 1/8 Baltic birch plywood. Blade of choice for most of it was a Olson 2/0 reverse for the outside and larger inner areas with little detail I used a #3 mach series Olson blade. I have a light coat of shellac on it."

Thanks Rolf, you did a fine job Looking at it now, I can see this pattern adapted with the words "I LOVE YOU" in three levels inside the small circle (for Valentines Day)...

Nice pattern Sue,
And as always a super cutting Rolf.

Very nice pattern.

Rolf, this is really excellent and, as others have said, you appear to have mastered cutting circles which, as everyone knows, is a real "bete noir". Well done!

I was trying to figure out how I would use this cutting, I thought about putting it on a backer with a center cutout for a photobut I like your idea of putting text in the center better.
Nope no circle jigs. I always put in a fresh blade before cutting a long circle or straight line. If I use a tired blade I tend to push more and lose control.
The cutting is about 10 inches in diameter.(correction I shrunk it to about 7.5 in across)
Thanks for the comments
