    I've done that and thought something was wrong with the saw.

    It kept picking up my piece of wood and WACKING back on the surface. I couldn't hold on to that piece to save my life.

    Then I thought there was something wrong with the blade, like I had used the wrong size.

    Finally, I figured out that stoopid me had put it in upside down.

    Definitely won't happen again.

      Did you hear about the family that came home from a two week vacation and heard a noise from the work shop/garage? Upon checking it out they found the garage door had came down ont the foot pedal of thier scrollsaw and it had been running for the entire time they were gone.

      When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

        Was that the only time you did it?

        There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

            Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

            We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

            What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
