Sorry it took so long to reply. All my fonts just come from MS works, which is the program I use to type and print them. That font is called "Orange LET". It's another forgiving font, great for us handcutters. Thx for the comps, and Dan, what can I say that hasn't already been said?

I'm getting "cutter's cramp" just looking at all those little circles. They're my least favorite thing to cut. Nice job.

I hated cutting circles too, now I have a circle cutter. Now I am trying to find things with circles!

MVP Vector UV Blue for the 1st anniversary of my Brewers podcast, The View From Bernie"s Chalet. Me and a couple other guys I went to broadcasting school decided to start a podcast and blog last January and we have really taken off. Check us out at http://viewfrombernieschalet.blogspot.com/ or on iTunes! One of the simplest looking marbles, but most complex to do.

Has some real depth to it since I did three separate marbles.

thanks for the comments, guys. NorthernDisc.... is the circle cutter like a cookie cutter type thing from the craft store, or is it more like a compass with a blade? Can you do different size circles? I try to avoid circles and lettering as much as possible. When I do have to do circles I like to use some of my woodcarving gouges if I have the right size. A #9 gouge is almost a perfect half circle. Lower numbered sweeps can be used by 'twisting' as you cut to create smooth circles.

I don't mind larger circles, but those little ones are just a pain. I do lots of lettering and I'm always having to do small circles for dotting I's and question marks and interior parts of letters and stuff like that. I need to come up with a tool for that.
