    G'Day All

    Have been making a few boxes, thought you may like to see my efforts. Sorry about the photography as taken with flash under tungsten light.

    Nice boxes Bernie. What wood did you use? Thanks for sharing them with us.

      Silky Oak, Pine and camphor Laurel, glad you like them, pity about the photography.

            A day in my shop is like a day at the beach...full of sunshine and ya never know where the sawdust may end up!

              Great looking boxes! Considering the lighting, the pictures turned out well.

              If you can't fix it with sawdust and glue, it's not worth fixing.

                Bernie -- Great boxes. Kim is right, re-purposing wood is great -- and a lot cheaper than buying new wood. The wood in the first box looks a lot like lacewood.

                      Just Wondering...

                      Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

                      With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

                      I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

                      Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

                      I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

                      If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...

                      Hi Linda, great find...I think.

                      Please keep us up to date with any information you receive. I would really like to get into this, but my computer skills are almost nonexistent, I need something that a 74 year old air head 🙄 can figure out. Thanks for sharing.
