  • Think you're good on a Saw

    Give this a shot.

    G'day all,
    My niece sent me a link to this site, saying "Uncle John, you could make these and sell them on line". I'm very pleased with her confidence in my abilities but............................................

    I'd bet my bottom dollar they are laser cut.

    I think it might be doable, but my, my it would take a long time.

            but i think you would be off your rocker too try and twisted eyed after ,
            defo a laser cut item i think.
            not doing much
            and busy doing it

                Obviously laser cut. You are good enough to do it though

                  Those are really beautiful, I agree with John, definitly laser cut.

                  Perk, I love your creation, is there a pattern for that somewhere?

                    Some of the ones I saw on their page looked easy...and for $290, I'd cut one in a second, ok an afternoon but you know what I mean...

                    Yup, laser cut for sure...It didn't say handmade anywhere sooo........

                        I thought about cutting that one . . . . . then I remembered, 'oh yea, I have a life!'

                            Hey John - now I'm back to full reply mode I can finally post a comment

                            First thought after reading the guff about how these are produced was that there are still some devils roaming around Tasmania, not in the wild though... they've been recruited into this company's marketing department!

                            As to you cutting it... with your skills it would be a piece of cake mate, but for motivation I'd first show Bette the selling price tag and then see if you can wriggle out of making one or more!

                            Like JimS' comment, I think some of the simpler designs on the site look attractive and wouldn't be difficult to cut and the idea would be easy to adapt for differing lamp styles

                              This site should be on every woodworkers computer. As has been said the first image is Wenge....

                              I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

                              If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

                              The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

                              I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
