    Hi Charles and welcome to the forum. My favorite cutting is also compound cutting. I especially like to make chess sets. I've attached a link to my favorite compound designer. She has many books available, all from Fox Chapel. Have a look you might be inspired.

    I hope you'll post some of your work.

I've done the chapter on compound cuts and found out I really like doing them. My question is now does anyone know of a book that has mostly compound cuts? I've also tried intarsia, but really dislike it. Quess I don't really understand it.

          WOW! Do you ever, and quite nice I might add.
          Thanks for posting your link, I added it to my favorites, so I can go back and get some patterns (as soon as I clean up my credit card )

                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...

                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...

                You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
