  • Ice festival

    Just had these pics forwarded to me in my email. I think they are incredible - taken at the Ice festival in Fairbanks, Alaska.

    When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

      All I can say is WOW! (And I'm glad we living in Florida)

        I'm going to go one better and say double wow. Those are incredible. I think Fairbanks has to be one inhospitable place. I understand in the winter you can actually hear the ice freeze harder. In the summer it can get to 100 degrees F. And I thought Minnesota had extremes.

        Thank you very much for sharing those photos. Alaska has always intrigued me.

          Mike - or anyone else who might be interested - there are some more pics here - pre-2001 links appear not to work though.

          The festival is held in March - I guess it's probably quite cool there then . Those sculptures must be even more awesome in real life though - I'd love to visit.

            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.
