    I did this from a pattern by Dave Hall. It's 8and1/2x11". Now I have to find or make a frame for it. I cut it from 1/8" BP.Should I put glass on it to keep out dust?
    Thanks for looking. Lance

      Nice job. Id say yes glass, but the expensive non glare glass if possible.

          It is amazing how many versions of that pattern I have seen. All of them maybe only one or two lines different.
          All my portraits are covered with glass. I don't want a careless duster to snag a part.

          When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

            I make my own frames and never use glass to cover the portrait. I want the wood to be showcased in the frame and I think the glass detracts from the viewing of the work. Just one opinion of many

              To use glass or not that is the question. I think it is more of a personal preference. I use glass in all of my portraits as I think it gives the work a more finished look. But I have seen works by other individual that they do not use the glass. Try it both ways and see what you like better.

                None of my portraits are covered with glass. I use a ladies fine makeup brush and shop vac to dust. Mike has the right idea, try both. The non glare glass would be my choice if I did want glass. I do frame all my pictures. Very nice cutting of JW.

                    At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

                    The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

                    Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
