    Can you believe they made a deck table out of these pieces?

    very beautiful colors and grain.... is it cypress? or cedar? or did I just show my lack of knowledge on wood types?

        Sadly, there are some who would have turned it into a bonfire.

          I would not have done that. But, at least cover the top piece with Envirotex(plastic coat) & never put something as nice as that on the bottom of the pedistal. That is a waste. I would have used it for something more attractive, like a clock maybe. Anyway, it sure was a waste. My 2 cents worth.

            I would have used it for something else but at least the beauty of the wood is being shared with others instead of being on a burn pile.

              Hi Rob - Definitely not my idea of a good way to use two splendid looking pieces of timber but obviously someone likes the result and I'd be a liar if I said that I'd never seen anything done like this before. I guess before we criticize too much we should remember the saying 'beauty is in the eye of the beholder'.

                The top piece at least gets to show off. I wouldn't consider it going to waste.

                The burn pile's what gets me. I was visiting a friend last night and every time he tossed a piece of maple in the firepit I saw the artwork screaming to be let out. I would have grabbed a stack if I wouldn't have to truck it home on an airplane. I'm not nearly as hardcore as Sr. Packs-a-Scrollsaw.

                    Thanks for the post. I have tried spirals in the past and had lots of issues. I need to set down one day and keep cutting with them until I get the hang of it. Part of my problem may have been covered by your number 7. Tried pine thinking it would be easy to cut but now realize the grain may have...

                    I agree, a beautiful piece and wonderful cutting. Years ago, my father had Alzheimer. The last six months we had him in the VA center in St. Cloud MN. His wood work shop is still in MN. I could not take it down to TN....

                    I have been using spiral a lot more lately Thanks to Charles Hand stunning designs. I have used them of and on since I started scrolling.
                    They were a real challenge on my Old Delta SS350. cutting straight in and out was easy, trying to cut details going sideways was the problem because of the...

                    The best tip I have with spirals is to cut straight lines backwards. instead of pushing the work piece into the blade, pull it toward you. Seems to allow for better control on straight lines (most other lines too)
