        WOW what a beast...looks really nice Mike. Since you said you cut the holes with the scrollsaw, my guess is that you made a box and on one end you made it into a face plate with the this correct? Which ever way you made it, it looks great!

              Shazam! That is absolutenly gorgeous. Your joinery is amazing. If I needed a knife block you would be my first choice.
              Just great.

                    Thanks for the comments everyone.
                    To Larry-- you are correct in your guess as to how the slots were made. The front where the slots are is 3/4" stock and the filler pieces inside the block are added and line up with the face slots. Lots of behind the scene work for sure. This is a prototype for the client that has expressed interest in having me create blocks for a cutlery store.

                      Wow Mike! - I thought that your previous knife block posting was fantastic but with this beast you've really excelled yourself. Simply beautiful!

                          by Rolf
                          I just finished rebuilding my friends 2nd EX 21, This one was in much better shape than the first. No rusty bearings this time but I re-greased them anyway.
                          I adjusted the front back motion and and the blade is also at 90 degrees to the table when using the locating pin.

                          I used...

                          If it means the difference between cutting something and doing nothing, then go for it. It might not be the choice of most of us, but we aren't working under the same constraints as you. Hope it works out for you. Looking forward to a review, once you get a few miles on it.

                          After totally over-thinking this, I have decided to go ahead with the Micro Mark Saw. It will enable me to do everything I can imagine in my limited space and budget.
                          I thank everyone for offering advice, and I look forward to receiving more. As soon as I get it and set it up, I will post pictures...

                          Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

                          Next project, the roofer next week. Yippee....

                          Betty, I just tried a test, using a standard jpeg file. I clicked "upload attachments", then selected the photo I wanted to upload, then double clicked the photo, and it uploaded without a problem. Go figure!
