        Another nice project DW. I been wondering when you sleep like WD but I think I know the answer you do sleep but you have your scroll saw on a mobile base so you can keep next to your bed at night or close by your side no matter were you are.

                    Very nice touch to assemble contrasting woods as your stock...and very nice assembly. I made a bowl using that pattern (?it is by Florin, from Romania, right?) and because of the very small areas for gluing I came up with a method that made symmetric glue-up very easy. I have pics but I don't have any online to link to so I'll describe it in words: I used a slab of styrofoam ~1" thick and bamboo skewers. As I stacked the rings I used skewers around the base, stuck into the styrofoam, tight to the base, in opposing pairs to keep the rings spaced evenly. The skewers gave enough friction to enable me to lift the rings and they stayed separated until I put down the dots of glue, lowered the first ring, put more dots of glue, lowered the 2nd ring, etc. When completed I put a weight on the top. The method worked verrrrry well for me.

                      Dan, your questions are a little tough to answer without knowing a little more about this puzzle you're cutting. That said, here are my thoughts:
                      • First of all, it would be helpful to know the overall size of this puzzle and how many pieces you're thinking of cutting it into. 1/2" BB is pretty

                      Hey Denny---I shot you an email with a few questions. I might just have to dip my toe into the world of Pegas blades vs FD. At least to try! Open minded explorations. Thank you ! Linda
