I bought the Bamboo Capture for all around use and for graphics and this thing is great! I just started using INKSCAPE and now with the touch tablet and wireless pen I can zoom way in and draw and trace over photos to create Marquetry and Intarsia designs for my furniture.

I have been trying to find some bamboo locally for some projects but all I seem to find is the flooring. I have seen some sheets of bamboo online but the shipping is outrageous.

Greg I don’t know how to say this but your reply makes no sense? I am not talking about wood, I am talking about a tablet for drawing designs.

I use one for all of my photo editing…a great little tool that makes it hard to go back to using a mouse.

I spent years retouching images for packaging using an Intuos tablet. My experience using a stylus is it’s about 33% quicker to draw complex paths and more accurate, less risk of RSI too. The pressure sensitivity really adds another dimension.

I guess I don’t have the bamboo serious, but the intuos4.

There you go Roger, I don’t know what was wrong I hit edit and save and it was fixed. It should work now.
I will cut out my drawings with chevalet and assemble using the “piece by piece” method then once assembled I will trace the outline using an exacto knife followed by routing out the depth with a Precision Router Base that I got here, some hyde glue and clamps and a light planeing to finish

Have your say...
