    Those are FABULOUS! Whichever one was the Valentine Gift was very much loved, I'm sure!

    As for burning off the fuzzies, my experience has been practice, practice, practice - I've located one spot just off the point of the blue flame and found a minimum distance I have to be from the wood, and then pay attention to how quickly I move the flame -- it varies depending on wood type.

    Or, you make the burns part of the art work!

      Hey Tim, Very nice work there! I guess the best way to not burn when torchin is... Don't torch! Actually I have never tried it so I really don't know.

          digger, it doesn’t take much, just keep practing on other stuff til you feel comfy at tryin one of these…when you think you’re ready, try somethin simple first, it if not happy with it, keep practicing…..for me, it’s purely relaxin….well, “adele, lady gaga, taylor swift, areosmith, and a few other choice album selections” help make my scrollin easier

                nice work TIM,
                i too use a torch too burn off fuzzies,but find that a few scorch marks tend too add a bit of charecter too the piece,or maybe its just me being lazy,not removing them...lol

                    Looking good Tim,Had a thought looking at you horses in the barn,I would try cutting the horse out ,stain the barn ,a weathered gray add a backer w/boards look lines stained a little darker gray then stain the horse your perfered shade maybe a roan color ,just a thought ,I think I would jump off the page.not takeing away from your work ,you did an excellent job.Like a said just a thought,

                        darker gray or darker what ever you make the barn,you could always cut out the horse on one you have made if it does't already have a home!

                          Merci Rolf , I use Pegas blade but not that kind, interesting what they say about it.
                          I will try them.
                          Have a good day

                          He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

                          Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

                          I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...
