  • 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

                              Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
                              That is...

                              The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                              Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

                              Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.
