    Inkscape has worked fine for me when making SVGs --- strange that the same file in the same format from two different apps is so different.

    I'd suggest trying simple files and adding complexity...

    I've used it a bit, and kicked in money back when then developers were stumping for money as Quasado.

    It's nice in that it's modeled on Macromedia Freehand, and costs less than Serif's Affinity...

    My apologies --- didn't want to cause any stress.

    Let's see, to break it down:

    I used an Ordbot for a while and worked up OpenSCAD files for a 3D printed hex bit organizer --- need to revisit that, but the file wasn't really suited to machining, needed a multi-sided setup which...
  6. Animation of options for fitted boxes in OpenSCAD

    Working on this for Design into 3D:

    Still working through the details of the design back-end --- it's a lualatex file which reads in the JSON from the saved preset from OpenSCAD and uses...

    The problem is, as noted, the subscriber system makes it very hard to bring in new members.

    I'd also argue that it goes against the very premise of openness and information interchange which the...

    Anyone know of a U.S. source for the "Kuri Kuri" small brace? (I checked all the sites listed)

    I am very constrained in terms of workshop space, and have a couple of smaller boxes which are about as densely packed as the Studley tool cabinet (possibly more so since there isn't any structure /...

    I've had high hopes for Serif's Affinity Designer and have been using the Windows version for a while now --- I wish they'd make it more Freehand-like than it already is, but aside from the missing...

    I bought Windsor Brass hinges from my local Woodcraft a while back and they were reasonable in price for something I expect to carry a load for essentially forever. Not seeing them listed on their...

    Yeah, that's the problem. I could:

    - hang the saw on the pegboard around my workbench in the basement laundry room --- then it's an extra trip
    - store it in the traditional toolchest I picked...

    Thanks!

    I guess if I don't come up with a better idea between now and just before the free shipping runs out, I'll give it a try.

    (The other option would be to get a folding saw, but that just...
  16. Anyone using a saw bag? (Gyokucho, also sold by Lee Valley) or similar?

    Lee Valley has this:

    http://www.leevalley.com/us/wood/page.aspx?cat=1,42884&p=47334

    which apparently is often bundled w/ a set of 4 or 5 Gyokucho saws. Just bought the 26" Ryoba from Woodcraft...

    I think a lesson plan which works from the principle of there being two basic divisions of furniture:

    - platforms
    - boxes

    would be a good basis to begin from.

    Have you studied the history...

    I have a cheap clone, which I used to use quite frequently (my basement workbench is better suited to metalwork than woodwork) since I do my most of my work outside.

    As bitterly as I complain about the typos and the pedestrian micro-typography, Virtuoso: The Tool Cabinet and Workbench of Henry O. Studley is a wonderful, inspiring book.
