  • Walnut Plaque

    Made this from 3/4" Walnut for a fellow co-worker , taking it to him today - hope he's happy with it . This picture doesn't really show how pretty the Walnut really is , but the lacquer made it pop - of course I soaked it in lemon oil before the finished coats went on it . Any comments are welcomed ......MB

        I agree, a beautiful piece and wonderful cutting. Years ago, my father had Alzheimer. The last six months we had him in the VA center in St. Cloud MN. His wood work shop is still in MN. I could not take it down to TN....

        They were a real challenge on my Old Delta SS350. cutting straight in and out was easy, trying to cut details going sideways was the problem because of the...

        The best tip I have with spirals is to cut straight lines backwards. instead of pushing the work piece into the blade, pull it toward you. Seems to allow for better control on straight lines (most other lines too)
