        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!

                        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.

                            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...

                            Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

                            That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....

                            Just a word of caution about the size of the blade hole. When I used a DeWalt years ago in the infamous community woodshop, and also with my more recent experiences with the Jet, if you do much bevel cutting at a steep angle, you will cut into the table. That's why inserts have the slot that can be...
