Oh, by the way, in my anger, I forgot something important. I’m not sure who the original designer of the display rifles are, but the plans can be purchased from www.woodcraftplans.com . They’re in the section titled scrollsaw corner.

Thanks for sticking up for we designers William. I am glad you appreciate the time and effort that we put into making good designs. One of the reasons I started my own blog was so others could see that it just wasn’t “drawing and running to the bank”. There are lots of things involved in making a good design and pattern that people don’t even realize and it is definitely a full time job. As you said – when you think of the cost of wood, supplies etc. the pattern is a small part of the project cost. And it can be used over and over again.
I love what I do and hope in this economy I am able to keep it up as my job.

If one can’t afford a pattern, and they don’t have the creativity to create their own, then maybe they’re working above their abilities ( Made in China rings a bell here ). Same goes for downloading any copyrighted material such as magazines http://lumberjocks.com/topics/18947 . And if someone brings up the point “We’ve all done it at one time or another.”, that doesn’t mean they have to keep doing it. Just because a baby craps his pants doesn’t mean he can’t outgrow it. Time to grow up. Thanks for speaking up on this William.

Thank you all for weighing in on the topic. I try my very best to be a pleasant kind of guy. When something rubs me the wrong way though, I just have to speak up. In situations like this too, I could’ve done it privately, but it’s a message that is worthy for all to read. This isn’t the first time I’ve been asked questions like that one, and probably won’t be the last. It never failed to chap my hide though. I don’t have a lot of money. Everything I have though, including my extensive pattern collection, I’ve worked for or at least got honestly. I’ve never stole nothing in my life and I aint about to help noone else do it either.
