do is fill the area inside the stand with the Celtic weave of infinity
Hmm, possible this posting will show up twice.
I've been following this thread. You might want to ask the wife if
she wants the Celtic design, or wants it the way it was. I'm always
getting birdhday and Xmas presents because some 'knows' I'd like what
ever. And usually I don't.
If she likes the idea, and I was doing it, I'd stick with the web.
See something you like,. print it. Then go thru everything later, and
pick you just what you want. Me, I can sketch freehand, so I'd probably
just do that. But it's easy enough to copy to size using a Xerox
machine. I do that sometimes too. There's sooo very much stuff on the
web, it's actually sometimes hard to find someting I like, simply
because there's so much stuff to sort thru.
I'm in the midst of a couple of major research searches just now.
One woodworking related, the other not For the woodworking, once I get
several designs I really like, or more realistically, severl I want to
take a bit from one, a bit from another, and so on, and combine all of
them, and wind up with a design I like, but that doesn't look much like
anything I started with. One one of my designs, believe I used about 15
printed pages, and sombined bits from each. But if you want books, I'd
say start at your local library, and come local bookstores - because no
matter how appealing someone makes a specific book sound, you'll never
really know if you actually like the book or not, until you've got in in
your hands, and thumb thru it. That's why I no longer allow people to
buy books for me, unless I've told them before hand what I would like.
