  • more names and ornaments...results from today

    I just finished these today. The ornaments are cut from 1/4 inch utility panel and MDF. The names are yellow and white pine, about 2 1/2 inches high, done in my own hand writing. I have all sorts of fonts on my computer but I have about 40 names to cut for Christmas and it is much faster, and cheaper, to use a good ol' pencil. Besides, it is so relaxing to sit around in the evening listening to Southern Gospel music and take my time writing out all the names I want to do, then take them to the shop the next time I get a chance to do some cutting.
    Besides names I want to do a few puzzles. Has anyone used MDF for puzzles? I asked Carter but he wasn't familiar with it. If MDF isn't good for puzzles, I bought a 5X5 piece of 1/4 inch solid core baltic birch plywood from a local distributor. Just wondering about MDF because it is cheaper.
    Thanks for looking. All comments and suggestions welcome, as always.

            Bubba I have found that mdf breaks easily at the tabs for puzzles. Some folks say it is great so I guess give it a go and let us know what you find. I prefer plys or poplar for my puzzles.

              Celtic knot-shamrock cross
              by Ennobee
              My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

              Hi Jim.
              glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes. Good luck with your house. How come I have the feeling that after all this work you'll end up living...

              Had to smile at that, as I bought that exact same hammer drill, for about the same reason

              Reply to Scroll saw table angle??
              by jim_mex
              I have my Dewalt mounted onto an adjustable metal stand I made which after setting the table at different degrees of inclination I find 7 1/2" degrees to be fine for me. However before deciding on whatever angle you want to set the table you need to decide what seat height of stool or chair you...
