Flynt's try to draw these patterns in pairs with the same level between the left and right kerf lines. It doesn't have to be exact same size, but try not to have much differences between the pairs. Okay, nice. You can see I always go dis patterns on the fats off the cuff loathe when it's near to the end. Off lines draw the pattern a little bit smaller. Okay, good.
