  • Another newbie! :)

    Hi everyone!
    I've joined today as well as subscribed to the magazine!
    I know you might think this is crazy, since I don't even have any woodworking tools, machines OR experience! lol

    But I just bought myself a new toy...a CO2 laser, and I've been doing the same kinds of things with it as you do with a scrollsaw. I just can't make round stuff....I mean like a ball.

    Anyway, glad to be here. I love to see everyone's work, and learn from you all that have been doing this a while! And maybe someday I'll be able to contribute as well.

    Hi Elizabeth, and welcome! What a delight to see the number of women who are into woodworking! I'd sure love to see some of your work and hear about how you create it, and what woods you like to work with! Seems to me some of the threads on finishing projects would be interesting for you? Look forward to hearing from you.

        He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

        Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

        I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...
