    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!

                          Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...

                          Bruce said he felt like he needed to look for a job when he first retired. That lasted for about a month and he hasn’t looked back since. I had a friend whose company gave him a 50th party. At the party he told them he was retiring in 2 weeks! Trust us, you will love being retired.

                          Hi ibber - LOL!

                          I took the keyboard back to the store a while back and they hadn't got a replacement in stock. Since I like the look o it I think I am going to play attack it later this evening and try to sort out the problem.

                          I think it might be a letter that one would need to use the left index finger. Perhaps you need a heavier hammer.
