  • finished wife's valentine gift, finally

    here's wife's finished vatlentine gift, plus a few other projects...
    oh, almost forgot, need a lesson or two on how NOT to burn the wood, when torchin the fuzzies, please?

    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!

                          Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                          I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...

                          Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

                          That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....

                          Just a word of caution about the size of the blade hole. When I used a DeWalt years ago in the infamous community woodshop, and also with my more recent experiences with the Jet, if you do much bevel cutting at a steep angle, you will cut into the table. That's why inserts have the slot that can be...
