  • Boy do i feel du... not smart

    Howdy

    So there i was working on my new project, part of it needs a compound feather. Ive tested a few patterns on some small pieces of wood about 6"X1"X1" or so.

    A few came out ok, a few not so ok. Actually one of my feathers came out looking like a leaf, (now i know how to cut a leaf..lol)

    So i decided to cut one close to the finish size about, 12" x3"x3/4" , the wood blank is just a bit bigger.

    So i glue on the pattern, cover with tape admired my work and began to cut.

    cut...cut ....boy im good...cut ...cut....following all the lines......great

    im so good....... mabey i should quit my job and do this full time.....i can sell these things for at least nine thousand dollars......cut....cut......perfect .

    the long flat side is done, now to turn it on its side and do that part, boy im good.

    hey pete .....yea......do you know how wide this feather is...nah never paid any attention to it, looks good right ....yup looks great

    hey pete...yea...do you remeber how wide a peice of wood your saw can cut.......nah not off the top of my head why?

    duh.........

    Sorry to hear of your dilema

    Do you know anyone with a bandsaw that you can finish it off with?

    BTW don't feel bad I have done the same thing. After all the blade is 5" isnt it

          Tony have fun, There is a great lightburn forum on face book also for Orture I would assume. What size did you get?

          Linda, With the laser engraver I just jumped in and then realized I had bought something that was very limiting and started to research after the fact. I know better, but...

          Good guesses, but no. It’s very useful and “outside the box.”

          My first thought is to hold the small paint bottles, but the holes are not symmetrically spaced....

          I am of the older crowd, LOL , I was blessed with a father, old world German tool maker and a Mom that turned into a techno junky. She got into computers in her mid 70's and digital embroidery, started digitized music that she played using computer software. she was a seamstress, by profession.
