  • How I spent the 4th

    Hello all Besides finding this awesome group of folks on this board, I also spent some serious shop time as I took Fri & Mon off as well. now I have figured out how to post pics so I thought I would share what I accomplished. I sincerely hope this is the correct forum for that as I am definately still a begginer ! Of the 2 knights, I actually cut the one with the purple plume last weekend & did the 2nd as a companion to that
    this is the first real chance I have had to share my work with anyone besides a couple of neighbors, Debra ( my sweetie ) and the dogs
    Comments/critisizms welcome ....go ahead, I can take it

    Nice work Robert, I especially like the fretwork cross. Where did you find that pattern?
    Thanks for posting

      Well, after looking at the pictures, it is evident that only Charlie can cut out ducks, because those ducks arent anatomically correct at all!!! Them are great! The cross is beautiful, and the knights all seem to fit perfectly. I think a purpleheart plume would have looked nicer on the one, but making do with what you have is the name of the game. as for being a beginner, your cuttings will inspire a lot of people to stick with it, and it really isnt that hard after all! Thanks for showing the photos.

                Robert,
                I really like that cross - great pattern, cut very well - and the base is just right.
                Knights are not my thing, but yours look well cut - no glaring wobblies in your cutting. I find the painted purple plume a bit distracting on the one on the right - a wash coat, still showing the wood grain, would have been my choice. But I'd bet that your intended recipient will be delighted, and I'm sure you're already planning your next masterpiece.
                Well done!

                  Thanx

                  Thanx for the kind comments & feedback Being a newbie, I was really nervous about posting those photos & the one I posted in the " new issue " category.
                  I'm much more at ease now and really like the suggestions on the plume ...filing those away for next time
                  Dale, whaddya mean " not that diifficult " ? I really was trying to cut out a duck !
                  Marsha, the "duck" pattern came from a freebie book that came with my SSW subscription. It has an awesome Black Lab on the cover ....which I also cut, but my pics are too large to share ....will make some new ones soon. I've torn my house up looking for the book so I could share the title, but it must be in the shop, which is back behind the house and I have not made it down there yet tonite. It is Fri so once I head down there I will not be back up to the house until I have fallen alseep at the saw a time or two
                  thanx again guys for the privelage of being part of your world. This is just too kewl!

                      Robert,

                      Amazing work.

                      I have to support the comments made so far: amazing cross, distracting plume (the washcoat idea is good).

                      Overall: a B+ (just because you said you were a newbie yourself, and I want to leave room for improvement )

                      Regards,
                      Marcel

                          Robert I like your cross, I have cut it out of spanish cedar and mounted it on a light background with a round base. I really like the base that you made. I will borrow your design for my next cross.(if you dont mind)

                            As much as I would like to take credit for the base, I just can't I actually found some on clearance at a local craft store ( like 50 cents a piece ) and bought a variety of styles. I will take credit for all of the sanding and hard work to finish it, since it was so cheap to start with. I'm sure anyone with better-than-average routing skills could make it ( that would not be me......yet ) It's basic design is that of a heart and I have fiddled with it a little and actually gotten close a couple of times, but I am not too learned on types of bits, depth etc

                              Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                              It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                              Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
