  • 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.

            i think it would be do-able,
            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

            having fun making sawdust.

                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

                              Talked to him yesterday after he was coherent. Very fortunately, it was dc current. He said ac current and would have ended differently. And it wasn’t a house. It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

                              Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

                              Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
                              HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
