  • Charlie's Fish

    Spent the afternoon trying to get myself closer to "trained termite" standard ...

    Great pattern, Charlie, and it was fun to cut if a little nerve-racking in a couple of places. A slightly warped bit of ply didn't help!

    5/32 in Baltic Birch - cut with #1 FD-SR blades - only 2 for all of it!

    There's just under 200 cuts if my counting is right ....

          Very "clean" and nicely done Ian! I like how you placed the pattern as well.

              Ian you did a great job cutting that out.
              Do you sell the things that you make?

                    Thanks for the compliments folks.

                    Jeff, yes I'm going to frame it at some point ...

                    Bob - no I'm not selling stuff at the moment, but hoping to later in the year.

                    Robert, not sure how long it took - lots of breaks to stop me going crosseyed ..lol I would guess around 4 - 41/2 hours total ..

                    Sharon - glad you like the duck ....

                            Thanks Daryl. I think you're right what you said in another post - we must have similar tastes in patterns ...lol

                              I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

                              If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

                              The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

                              I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
