Hi Andrew, you better half's and your health comes first  we can wait for a book.

Hope your better half has a speedy recovery and your tooth (or what's left of it) is feeling better.

Regards
Gordon
Yours Sincerely
Flash (Gordon)

All good,  Flash. My partner is home and is recovering better than expected. I had a lengthy dentist visit yesterday that was particularly unenjoyable  :'( . Went to the post office today to check if book+box was under 500g (came in at 488g) :), but didn't have time to box up and send so tomorrow I'll send out some books.Anyone who has transferred $$ and hasn't given me an address please do.
CheersMB

Hi,I have been sent a few PM messages that have not arrived and I'm also wondering if all I sent have been sent.I didn't get addresses from two people. So if you have PM'd me and I have not responded or asked for an address again please don't feel put out as I haven't done it on purpose. Please send me another message.
Most books have now been posted.
I would like to end book sales via the forum now as I don't want to turn this site into a sales platform for my book. I will soon have my webpage up, hopefully tonight and all sales will be thought that.
I hope everyone enjoys cutting my designs.CheersAndrew

I think most know you well enough here to know that you aren't here to flog stuff off on a daily basis, Makky. I also think you could put a link or at least the name of your website for those that may want to look it up in the future.

Hi Bucket,
I will upload a link to my webpage soon.

I am having a little bit of trouble getting it up and running on it's domain name atm. It may work with some browsers.It is my first go a building a webpage and I plan to significantly upgrade it in the future with a database of my designs and other features.

Atm, I have the addresses of everyone that has contacted me and the majority of books have been sent. 

Should be going end of weekend, not easy figuring it all out when I haven't done it before.
CheersAndrew

Website works fine on iPad (both chrome and safari browsers), good job.

You spelled your name wrong in the footer though  :P

Good One Makky
Wow, Congratulations on your book, amazing work, amazing designs.
I can't wait to try cutting them.

My wife is looking through it while having a coffee and lots of wows and that's pretty, so from both of us, a big thumbs up.

Mine just arrived as well. Beautiful work mate, packed with information.

Let me know if there's anything I can help you with on the software side for your second volume, but for now, take pride in having finished the first!   beers

My website is: facetingdesigns.com for those that haven't found it. Thanks for all the feedback, thanks for finding the error Rej. I hope to significantly update the webpage in the future.  It took me a lot longer than it should, as it took me awhile to get my head around html, css, js.

One of the motivations for the book was organizing my designs, instead of loose bit of paper everywhere. I had a request for a hexagon on the w/end. So today for the first time, instead of hunting around for a printout or printing out again I picked up the book and cut Hexafusion Seven in topaz, very nice design :) I'll upload a picture later.

I plan to start uploading video of my test cutting to Instagram,  I made a oscillating rotary table yesterday and I have taken my first movie of a test cut for volume 2.  I have all my designs for volume 2 just have to work though them all test cutting. I've expecting volume 2 to be at least as good as volume 1.   

Rej, when I get more time I'll have a chat about software.
Thank you everyone, I hope you enjoy my designs. Any questions, happy to help.
CheersAndrew

Hi Andrew,

Oscillating Rotary Table?  Is that for your concave cutter?

Regards
Gordon.
Yours Sincerely

Andrew ,
The book is most interesting - good to see some original thinking in design to maximise the beauty of faceted stones. Trouble is I don't know which pattern to try first !!!
