narrating is not my thing :) plus don’t really feel I needed to – hopefully the video is self explanatory :)

Nice! I watched it at work with my speakers off; I take it from the comments there was no narration? I like videos that don’t leave bits out of the video component because it’s mentioned in the audio.

Do you know of any good sources for bookmark patterns? I’m planning on improving my scroll sawing skills this summer and this looks like a good project for me.

How thin did you plane the Walnut down to?

Elizabeth – I don’t know of any resources except I can be a resource for u. If you’d like me to design one for u just let me know what direction u want to go with and I’ll see what I can do

Don – not sure of the measurement, but final thickness is about the same as a U.S. quarter

Wonderful video and beautiful bookmarks. Thanks for posting this.
PS: I love the “Stray” cat! Some of their music would have gone well with your video.

Thanks for taking the time to document and share this, it is a lot of work.
I liked the silent style in the vid….. as good old country song says “a little less talk and a lot more action!”

Hi Doug,

Do you have an electronic image of your pattern that you could send to me and I could print out? From there, I could modify it on the computer for different images on the top. I could PM you my email address.
