        Just when you think you have seen most of everything a guy like this appears to astound you! Where do these guys find their imagination, skill and incredible patience to come up with works of art such as these? Amazing work!

        Thanks for link Mike and also for allowing me to give my wife a good reason for not throwing away all the wood chips that usually bury my shop back home until I get nagged enough to have a clean up !

          Fantastic!!!!!!! My wife's comment, a very quiet "Don't get any ideas."

          A day without sawdust is a day without sunshine.

            I bag mine up and put them on the neighbors fence. He uses all my scraps for his nightly camp fire. He puts bags of oranges, in season, on my fence so I need to reciprocate.

                      How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

                      The view on the house is nice but that 11 foot 3 ceiling height is killing me....

                      I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
                      Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

                      If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

                      Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
