        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.

                      One issue I found with the insert that comes with the saw was the areas they smoothed for the kickback pawls. If the insert is leveled correctly, those areas are sitting about 1/32-inch below the table. I had a problem with some small pieces getting caught and jamming because of that. Sawstop's recommendation...

                      That is a definit rescue for a special project. I rarely get or use any pallet wood. But did use some from the pallet that my drill press was on. It looked like pine but was was very hard, carefully checked for nails and ran it through the drum sander with some 80 grit to get rid of any small grit.

                      I wish I could post the video as it looks better with the lights blinking. I used some red clear plastic behind the eyes and nose. It was a fun project.

                      Maybe a star shining to tell us something? That piece of wood is a very special piece! Good eye.
