    thats what I would go with. I would start in the center and work outward.

      That is quite an undertaking. Be extremely careful near the top of the face as there are only 2 tiny bridges holding the face to the outside wood. This is going to make it extremely fragile. I would make a false bridge or 2 near the chin too the sideways pyramid shapes at the base of the chin area and cut them out at the end to help stabilize it. Good luck and do not be surprised if you break it.

          I agree with Mike, I'd cut the eye area first and then leave a couple of pieces from the cheek to the outside of the hair and then cut them out last. It's going to be great when you finish. Not going to be as tough as it looks anxious to see it when finished.

              just be careful,when the face area is cut it will be very delicate,uasaly when i cut somthing like this i hold on too the waste piece and reassemble it on a flat piece of ply too sand it,the waste helps keep it together better.

                  That is what glue is made for. If it breaks a lot of the time, if careful, you can put it back together and no one will know but you. I had a project that broke in three different places due to my not being carefull and I asked some people to see if they could find the break and no one could. Just my 2 cents worth.

                      I cut out all the pieces, paint them and put them all back in. I dont leave empty holes. Saves alot of hassle and makes things easier to figure out and visualize.

                        I just did a quick job on my table. Charles Hand has noticed that the adhesive on the new rolls of Contact brand shelf paper leaves a residue. He has changed to The duck brand. I just bought a roll and covered my table with it. It is a tough slick surface. It will be interesting to see how it holds...

                        Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                        I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...
