Default Learn new each project

The golden falcon is cut on 1/8" BB from a pattern of Dor R at old crow scrollwerks.

The cross if made from yellow heart with purple heard backer. Patten of Sue Mey.
The learning part is something I learned cutting the cross that proberly everone else on here does, but maybe not. I cut the frets out then glued the purple heart backer to the yellow heart before cutting the perimeter. This made every thing stronger an also made a perfect fit.

In the past I would attach the backer with tape, cut the perimeter of the pattern than cut the frets an than attach the backer with glue.
