Those are so fun Bob!!!! Thanks for making them, I was worried that that the curves would be a bit too tight. I hope you take a next week's Cats!!!

These are very easy to cut. the good thing about the ghosts is that following the lines is not important. Close is plety good enough. These would be good practice for a beginner.

Sounds like I'm going to be making cats next week. My grandson is a cat person. He loves cats and cat toys.

Those are awesome.....so i decided to prototype some spooks on the CNC. Still got some cleanup to do.

Here is a quick sampling, you can see the bees wax LOL. These would work on scroll also, with a lil mod.

I’m new and got these little ghosts and the others too in the Wood Toy Weekly magazines. I’m wondering how you deal with the patterns,
Do you just print them on regular paper and throw them out each time?
I thought I’d put them on card stock to trace them onto the wood so I could re-use them, but cutting all the intricate patterns out with scissors was old after the first one (I started cutting out the small bats, of all things, lol!).
That got me thinking I’m not on the right track.
So, what the best way to use the paper templates and still keep them?
I think the ghosts are easier and I’d like to start with those tomorrow I think.
Thanks for any help you can provide with getting setup and started!

Hey bl_smith if you plan on doing the patterns over and over you could cut them out on thin masonite and use that as your pattern multiple times

You will get better results with printed patterns. 

 

Put blue painters tape on the wood and glue your patterns to the tape with spray adhesive(3M Super 77). The tape lets you remove the pattern without leaving glue on the wood. You can use other glues, but 3M Super 77 will not lift while you are cutting. I have tried them all.

 

You can use templates, and that is what I did in the days before computers. I would never go back to that.

Thanks BadBob. I’m also being told to trace the image onto the wood using carbon paper. Have you tried that and how did it work? I’ve got a bunch of it and some little tracer styli without various sized balls on the end depending on the thickness of lines you want.

Going back to the paper again, won’t the blue tape mess up the blade as it cuts?

So, you can make one with the paper pattern, then trace out subsequent ones using the first wooden one, assuming it’s good?
Guess I’ll stop using up my card stock then and just use paper.

I’m not following your last sentence about using templates before computers? I’m using the computer of course to get templates to print them out. I thought this was the way it was done as I’ve seen in many YouTube videos.
