I tried putting the methods into the cut method created from implementing cutable and I was recieving errors at line marked **

      public void cut(ActionEvent evt) {
**          public static Image getClipboard() {
              Transferable t = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getSystemClipboard().getContents(null);
          
              try {
                  if (t != null && t.isDataFlavorSupported(DataFlavor.imageFlavor)) {
                      Image text = (Image)t.getTransferData(DataFlavor.imageFlavor);
                      return text;
                  }
              } catch (UnsupportedFlavorException e) {
              } catch (IOException e) {
              }
              return null;
          }
}

      Syntax error, insert ";" to complete BlockStatements                  
                Syntax error on token(s), misplaced construct(s)

Is the above mentioned  code being used in program..
As it seems to have a method in a method

As you are missing some } somewhere
The below mentioend method is OK

       public static Image getClipboard() {
                Transferable t = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getSystemClipboard().getContents(null);
   
                try {
                    if (t != null && t.isDataFlavorSupported(DataFlavor.imageFlavor)) {
                        Image text = (Image)t.getTransferData(DataFlavor.imageFlavor);
                        return text;
                    }
                } catch (UnsupportedFlavorException e) {
                } catch (IOException e) {
                }
                return null;
            }
   }

         public static Image getClipboard() {
             Transferable t = Toolkit.getDefaultToolkit().getSystemClipboard().getContents(null);
         
             try {
