  • Hawks and owls revisited ...

    OK a few cuttings from the end of last week ... still need bases but they were easier to photograph flat ...

    All half inch wood - the horned owl is English elm, the others the usual oak ..:-)

    Cut with FD -SR #1s and 3s

    Great job on the pieces Ian AND excellent job orienting the grain to complement the patterns!

            Very impressive, Ian. What are you going to do with all these wonderful pieces?

                    Gee, that middle one looks familiar. Sure it isn't an owl? Very nice work. Among the other items I'm getting ready for my shows, I'm also doing a Bald Eagle. Should be nice when I get it done.

                      LOL - did you get the message I sent you?

                      Hey - a question about that bald eagle. I've got that pattern too - assuming it's the Fowler's magazine one .. did you find any wood where the head was lighter than the rest? (If that makes sense?) I've been looking around but the only thing I've come across is red W cedar and I'm not sure it will hold up to those fine cuts ..

                          Looks like a good day or two in the shop there, PuzzledMoose. Nice work.

                          When you attach those to the base, will you be using screws or just glue?

                            Thanks for the comments. Probably both, Unix. Was going to do it this evening - until I found I don't have any suitable screws. All the ones I have are either too short, too long or too thick. I think there is some shop law that says "However many types of screw you have you will still not have the one you need for a specific job!"

                                I just finished rebuilding my friends 2nd EX 21, This one was in much better shape than the first. No rusty bearings this time but I re-greased them anyway.
                                I adjusted the front back motion and and the blade is also at 90 degrees to the table when using the locating pin.

                                If it means the difference between cutting something and doing nothing, then go for it. It might not be the choice of most of us, but we aren't working under the same constraints as you. Hope it works out for you. Looking forward to a review, once you get a few miles on it.

                                After totally over-thinking this, I have decided to go ahead with the Micro Mark Saw. It will enable me to do everything I can imagine in my limited space and budget.
                                I thank everyone for offering advice, and I look forward to receiving more. As soon as I get it and set it up, I will post pictures...

                                Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

                                Next project, the roofer next week. Yippee....
