        Very well done. I'm sure your small son really liked it. What kind of wood did you use?

                  Marc, Could you tell me what wood do you use to make the piece of chess? The black pieces are they painted? Thank you.

                    Thanks all for your very nice reception.
                    For the chess pieces I used wild cherry wood
                    It is a tight grained wood with a very warm color I adored making this work.
                    Now I will change directions towards clock making. I adore!
                    Cordially.

                        That chess set looks great. Has to take awhile to make so many pieces but worth it if you play chess.
                        I can make out a few words - took French for two years in high school part (because the pretty girls took it). :-) Can never understand a word verbally though (we receive Canadian TV and radio in Western NYS).

                          Beautiful work -- expert cutting! The wild cherry you used is beautiful wood.

                            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.

                            Using Corel Draw a 10 inch round acrylic jigsaw puzzle was created. It was the cut on an Epilog Laser. Two passes were used to cut thru 1/4 acrylic so as not to melt the plastic. Only one person has put it together so far. It is about 475 pieces. But would really like to try and cut one by...

                            As far as the Incra miter gauge, if you keep it 1/4 inch away you will be fine, but you will have to adjust it when doing angle cuts, it’s a great miter gauge, RJ...
