          Looks great! And your turned pen is great as well. Turning and scrolling go together pretty good . welcome aboard. Dale

            Welcome aboard Pete.

            Nice piece, that kitty seems ready to pounce up that pole. Don't forget to date it, sign it, and most importantly, KEEP IT.

            You will be happy in the future to see where you started, and have a physical memento to compare your progress.

            My only advice is to get some good blades, they are easy to order online, and they do make a difference.

            Then, enjoy and have fun.

            Regards,

                          Nice job on the cat and pen! I like the "pointer" you posted on IAP as well.

                              Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

                              We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

                              He has 4 of the long ones, but we have other sizes that he uses for clamping up his cheese board slicers, another good seller. They go for $35, left over wood from dough board. On late shift yesterday because I took a 2 hour nap around 7. Off to the saw! I have 8 days of shows in 2 weekends! And one...

                              What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
