  • My first stack cutting

    Well I finally gave stack cutting a try, I used two 1/4 BB plywood pieces, followed the advise of others here on the forum, I taped around the edges of the plywood and then used a brad in each corner....and it worked!!

    Another great day spent at the saw!!

    Great job on the stack cutting!

    I use tape but I don't nail the edges. I haven't had the need to so far.

    Those pieces are finished really well. Great work!

      Very nice work-- and I just tack and don't use tape around the edges--lol
      I do cover the top with clear packing tape to help control the small cut outs-- and I put poster board on the back to keep the splintering from splintering--I also put a tack of few inside the work area where it may have a arc (bow) in one of the boards- this keeps both boards together and is placed some large place that will be removed or I have even saved the tacked spot to cut last and take out the tack if I can't saw around it..
      But wasn't it fun to learn --now that you can do the portriate you can go to the scenic and more complex projects....

        I do as Carl does, just tape around to hold the stack. But, so Sharon dont feel so bad I will admit I use clear packing tape on the top too!!!!!

          So many are selling them here it’s not worth us making them. However, we do very well with our dough boards. Nobody else makes them. We have an order for a dough board and matching pepper grinder. The walnut board I could make into a beautiful basket or two and sell for lots more than they are getting...

          I use #7 on my younger kid puzzles. Easier for them to put together.

          I did forget to mention he cut a finger on his left hand with the bandsaw. Just took skin off. Lucky again. Told him he was calling 911 next time.

          Jim, if you scroll down to the bottom of the page, on the left you’ll find some style options that change the font size and color. I’ve been using Defalt vB5 Style, and it seems to be about the best for my iPad, but I’m still experimenting with my iMac.
