  • My first post and poor photography

    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.

    Cheers

    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.

        Photography aside you did a very nice job on the boxes.

              Bernie,

              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.

                      by Bill Wilson
                      I've owned both tilting table and tilting head saws. My current saw is an EX-21 (pre-Chinese made version) with the tilting head. I have to say that for beveled cuts, I much prefer the EX over my previous tilting table saws (Craftsman and Dewalt). I think a lot of it is the rack & pinion angle...

                      Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...

                      And no annoying dust collection holes, for little pieces to catch on, right?

                      Since tilt arm style saws are my personal favorite . . . I can criticize it right? I hate the freaking dust collection mechanism on my King, and prefer the table on the older Green EX that didn't have that....

                      I've been creating patterns for about 6 years, but I still haven't had any Easter patterns. And here is my first one - Easter Bunny. I plan to make more this year.
