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)...

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
