  • 2 new names; one from purple heart

    Sorry I can't post anything more exciting but this is what I've been working on. My name is cut from a 1 inch thick piece of purple heart. I used 2 no. 5 platinum blades and took about 40 minutes...30 minutes just doing the inside cuts. This is some hard stuff!
    My dad's name is cut from 3/4 inch stained plywood, then sanded, to make it look antique. I'm not sure if I succeeded but I'm pleased with it. I think he will be, too. I'm taking it to him tonight when I take his supper out (brown-sugared ham)
    Thanks for looking.

    Nice job on the "y" - I always find tails a problem.
    Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

          Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
          That is...

          The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

          Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

          Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

          Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

          Now,...
