    Here's a little Saturday morning project. I rarely work saturday, so they keep my Saturday work a little more interesting. It took a few hours to make.

    Daniel, Borders all run same direction? Did you make it up on and apply a monk cloth back? Pretty little rug :)

    I've always wondered how the carpet reacts over time with the carpet backings going different directions in an area rug like that......... Never seen any problems, just a wondering.
    Looks real nice, but can't see the bevel. How do you keep the bevel straight? I have never seen beveling performed.......... except in poorly constructed seams in a plush carpet, where it wasn't intended. :D
    I assume beveling is done before the individual pieces are joined?

    I beveled with an N-C beveler. IT is similar to the blades and fence of a wood joiner. I ran the pieces thru the beveler before assembly and just cleaned up the beveled edges with a N-C carver. r

    I would imagine that the answer is blowin in the wind, however, after workin on Maggie's farm, I'm so tangled up in blue, that I doubt I'll get off desolation row long enough to paint my masterpiece.
