  • A Scottish Wedding

    Two Scots, Archie and Jock, are sitting in the pub discussing Jock's forthcoming wedding.

    "Och, it's all going grand," says Jock. "I've got everything organized already: the flowers, the church, the cars, the reception, the rings, the minister, even ma stag night..."

    Archie nods approvingly.

    "Heavens, I've even bought a kilt to be married in!" continues Jock.

    "A kilt?" exclaims Archie, "That's braw, you'll look pure smart in that!

    "And what's the tartan?" Archie then asks.

    "Och," says Jock, "I'd imagine she'll be in white..."

          He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

          Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

          I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...
