  • Back to making saw dust

    I had my stitches out this morning after my run in with a doggie who took a fancy to my hand. Still a lot of swelling but not so painful unless I knock it so I may try and make some saw dust this afternoon. May have a go at Jim Sawyers inlay challenge to ease me back into the groove.

    Take it easy Mick! - no sense forcing things just to inflate Jim's ego ! As for inflating mine - well I'm already floating in the clouds most of the time.

    I suppose Wendy has already give you the ' if you go in that shop and something happens don't come moaning to me routine' so on this occasion I'll keep my comments to myself. Just go steady eh!

      Glad to hear you are on the mend. Don't over do it. Jim's project is pretty straight forward. Give it a go.

        Well I had a go in the shop but things didn't work out so good. I just couldn't cut to the line at all because my fingers are still swollen and clumsy. The good thing was that I didn't experience any real pain. Guess I'll leave it a couple of days and try again.
        Jim you got Wendy down to tee. When I told her I couldn't get anything cut yet she said " I told you didn't I, but do ya listen to me? Never. Now you'll have your tail between your legs and be sulky the whole weekend"

          I sort of know how you feel I tried to do a cutting this morning and my thumb seems to hit everything in sight. I had to give up, I think there must be a bulls eye on it or something. zassperatin....grin

            Don't feel too down Mick. I remember when I had my toe operated on a couple of years ago, I could do much in the shop for a few days, I was told to keep it elevated. There's only so much TV a guy can stand...lol. And every time I tried to push it and go sit at my saw, after about 5 minutes, I realized that the Doc was right, (throb, boom, bam), right back to the couch...
            Take your time, do what the doc says, and get well soon........

            And Mike you're right about the bullseye theory. No matter where I hurt myself, THAT'S where I get bumped..... weird....

              Mick, your Wendy sounds just like my Janet. I am waiting to have a shoulder operated on, and everynight I come in from the shop saying how much my shoulder hurts...she just says "stay out out of the shop" Like that would work. Hope you feel better soon Mate

                Rodney, I will admit I'm in that group. The younger people are too busy with kids and getting a good foothold in careers to have time for hobbies. I know I didn't even start scrolling til my daughter went away to college. I've loved it ever since!

                Thanks Linda. I have tried a wide (pun intended) verity of thicknesses. I cut a Mother's Day rose that was at least 1 1/2 inches thick. That's where I learned that I was doing too much pushing against the blade and not letting the blade and saw do the work. The thin strips between frets would cut through...

                Hi Rodney! Nicely cut. I love the black backing especially.
                Your explanation for the thin 1/4" wood makes total sense when it comes to framing. I did a detailed Iwo Jima on 1/4" as well as 1/8" thick, both framed. The feedback I got from a 60-90 year old group of guys was the...
