  • 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

                              Yes I'm still using the one I built I did some upgrades to it though. I swapped out the pipes for linear motion rails and made the gantry out of aluminum. I guess if I were to upgrade now I would be looking for a full size machine that could do 4x8 sheets of plywood with an automatic tool changer but...

                              With all these new tool stories, I was working on and old one. About 9 years ago, I built a router table. Then, before it was finished, I had to start using it. And I have used it over the years. A couple of months ago, While I was contemplating cleaning, I looked at the machine and decided to finish...
