    That would work but it still would need to be up-sized and gridded so the papers could be taped together. Ideas on how to do this?

    I have an old drawing program that prints over many pages. I will play with it when I get home from work.

    Steve, with a light behind a small cutout of it you could trace it on your board.
    Just a thought.

    That would work Ken but I am looking for a more permanent type of template that could be segmented together like a grid. This would be good incase more folks want it. These are being banned on public property across the country so I wanted something that private folks could have for their yards, etc. The government may run from a fight but that doesn't mean we have to! Something that could be cut out on the CW and assembled then used as a template OR as the actual display itself would be cool. Nice and big too.. Like 4 X 8' worth for the front yard.

    Roger, a lot of my thoughts contain "old school" ideas, that is what happens when you are an old-poop.
    I wondered, while typing "Alt-2-3-6", in another post just how many people would know what I was talking about.
    Those were the days, before the mouse, when you could use character 255 to keep people out of a directory.

    The next step is dementia where all ideas are new!

    Ken, yeppers, thats old school using "DOS" for commands....before windows were invented, windows meaning Microsoft Operating System. I took DOS back in the late - early 90's....then started with windows 3.1
    I understand what Steve is wanting to do and why, it would be very much like a jig saw puzzle. I hope someone can help him out here and make it possible for him.

    This is a memorial that is/was on display in a North Carolina town until some anti christian group decided it had to go.

    I would like to know if someone here could capture the outline of the soldier, helmut, rifle and cross and make it into a cut path. Then size it up so it will fit on a 4 X 8 sheet of plywood. You would have to break it into squares that could be assembled and taped together to make the pattern. Say 12" wide and 4 or 8 foot long strips of MDF when put together make the full outline that can be then transferred to the plywood and cut out with a jig saw.

    I have a good sized yard and would love to have this on display in it. Others may want it as well.

    Thanks,

    Steve

    PM me if you would like to help or post here.
    You could carve that out with 3 or 4 fourteen inch wide boards - Will this work?

    I have often wondered why it is that
    Conservatives are called the "right" and Liberals are called the "left".

    the fool to the left."
