    Latest Cutting,
    Many thanks to Randy for making the wonderful pattern for me.
    Took this one to the Markets on Sunday and sold it. Have two more, I'm just in the process of finishing frames for.
    Don't know why the pic has a "Blue" cast

      First--great cutting and love the framing.

      Second, for the camera part, take a photo outside in normal daylight. If it is very blue, check the settings in your camera. Mine got set to indoor lighting (tungsten) at a wedding and when I went to shoot some scenery, it looked like blue ink was washed across the image.
      When looking at the clock at work--the correct time is:
      Too early to leave, too late to call in.

            Beautiful work as always! As for the blue cast to the photos, Jim McD is right. It has to do with the color temperature of the light conditions. Your digital camera has a setting for white balance that will correct that problem for you. Just as a reference, tungsten light is very yellow. If the camera corrects for that, then the bright sunlight or fluorescent lighting will appear very blue when photographed. There is an automatic setting for white balance on most digital cameras but that is iffy at best. Just get into the menu on your camera, hunt up white balance. It's easy to set for the lighting conditions where you are.

                    G'day all,
                    Thanks very much for the kind words.
                    Thanks to Jim and Jan for info on the white balance with the camera. The wall behind he picture is beige so you can see the colour is not true. The frame colour is pretty accurate.

                      Nice work John. I didn't know who Slim Dusty was either but googled him and listened to a few of his songs. I can understand why he his so popular down under. Again good work.

                          It doesn’t matter whether the saw table tilts or the saw arm tilts. Either can be used for any project cut at an angle, and there’s a learning curve for each.

                          I actually prefer the tilting table because the blade remains vertical. I find that at really steep angles, like 40 or 45 degrees,...

                          This is the tapestry I found in the cedar chest. We can’t identify where the pictures are from. Two among many. I also forgot to mention dad was also in the army Fife and Drum Corps and also played with a big band when he was discharged. Have to find that info....

                          If you are referring to 3D Compound cutting, the blade is 90 degrees to the table and not tilted. I use the tilting head for things like inlays and Carole's bowls. If you want a tilting arm, be sure it is rack and pinion. Look at other features that may fit your needs. As a Pegas dealer, I can help...

                          I think the foot release was an option. I don’t see the pulley for it on the back of yours. Although it may have been removed. It is a very simple concept, it’s a cable attached to the back of the saw to release the arm
