  • Stepson's puppy Cass

    This is the one I had to refinish today.
    I cut one of these for my stepson at Christmas and this one is for his Ex in Chicago.
    It's done in 3ply 1/4" birch ply and backed with 1/4" luan painted black. The turn buttons and hanger are 1/8 BB Backed with 1/8" BB and bevel sanded so they lay flat when clamping the portrait in the frame.
    The frame is butternut resawed and planed to about 3/8", stained zar's mocha. Everything has 2 coats of shellac and three coats of Rustolium clear enamel
    The portrait is raised about 3/32".

                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.
