  • Bald Eagle

    Finished this up last week.
    It was designed by Jacob Fowler.
    I used 5/8" walnut and #1 & #3 FD blades and it has 187 inside cuts.
    Fun to cut.

    I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me!

    Bob, that is just plain awesome. I like the simple but effective base also. What did you finish it with?

        Bob,
        Wonderful job. I love the Fowler's designs and you cut it beautifully I also love working with walnut. Easy to cut but able to make very small connectors cleanly. Very few fuzzies and finishes, for me at least, with only a couple of sprayed coats of gloss varnish. Have a happy thanksgiving.

                Thank you for all the nice comments.
                The Hawk is about 14" tall. I cut the size down some and I don't remember how much, but thought it would be to tall for me.
                For a finish I used 50/50 MS and BLO and then used wipe on poly.
                I used skip tooth blades.
                The time it took me to make it, I have no idea. I would work on it for awhile and then go back to making ornaments and then back to the Hawk. I do that on a lot of big projects.

                    Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

                    We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

                    He has 4 of the long ones, but we have other sizes that he uses for clamping up his cheese board slicers, another good seller. They go for $35, left over wood from dough board. On late shift yesterday because I took a 2 hour nap around 7. Off to the saw! I have 8 days of shows in 2 weekends! And one...

                    What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
