Well, come Tue, I’ll have had my GF+ for 1 week. Prior to it arriving I spent some time on here learning some sh…tuff and teaching myself Inkscape. Today I did my first real project, no guidance, feeling my way in the dark and all, never having used a laser printer prior to last Tue and never hearing about Inkscape before 2 months ago.
I had a photo of a Celtic Knot Trivet that I have hung on to with hopes that some day I could make one. I had to work it in Inkscape from a rough pic and build the pattern from the ground up, the artwork took me about 6 1/2 hrs., got a lot more to learn I guess. I had some left over 1/4" scrap wood from an old scroll saw project so I cleaned it up, sanded and masked it. I did a cut test on the two different kinds of wood, still got to learn more about that too. I did the cuts, it was a 3 level cut for 3 different types of wood so I had to be particular about what got cut where and how. Oh, almost forgot, I did my first manual settings for the cuts, that had me just a bit anxious but it was an accomplishment.
All said and done, I think I have about 11 hrs. in the whole project but for my first I think it came out pretty decent. My sister-in-law better appreciate it come Christmas!
