    As a matter of fact Ian, Blackwalnut is one of my favorites to cut and whenever I see an unusual piece of any kind of wood I get it and stack it in my "don't have anything in mind but something will come up stack". And guess what I have? A piece with the white running down one side so the head will be white and the rest will be blackwalnut! Cool, huh? As for the picture, I'm working on it! There's only 24 hours in a day, what do you guys expect?

    Thanks, Dale. No not a super fast cutter - there's probably about 8 hours work in those 3 birds in total - over 300 cuts altogether ..

    I was pleased with the results though - especially that Barn Owl. I didn't realise till I'd finished that there's not actually a lot holding the face section onto the rest of it .. I might have worried when I was cutting it if I'd noticed ...lol

    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!"

    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 ..

    We need to know what saw you are using, as they have different clamps.

    When a blade slips out, the tendency is to tighten it more. Make sure you haven't over-tightened the clamp forcing the sides apart. Most OEM clamps are made from soft aluminum so once it starts they will continue spreading and it will be near-impossible to keep the blades in place.
