  • Finished Knight

    I cut the knight pattern yesterday and it turned out fine - apart from one oops! Those with eagle eyes can maybe spot what went wrong - at least if you compare it to the pattern - I'm not sure it's noticeable if you haven't seen the pattern.

    The oops wasn't due to any difficulty cutting - just me being dumb and not stopping the saw when I got a piece of waste stuck in the blade hole on the table. Tried to remove it with the saw running and the blade went where it wasn't meant to - duh!

    Stacked (x2) 1/4 inch Finnish Birch - cut with FD SR#1 blades - gave the spirals a rest for this one ... One major advantage - no fuzzies...

    Thanks to you all for the comments yesterday - and especially to Kevin for his advice and tweaking.

    I'm pleased it came out so nicely in the end, Ian. If you didn't know there had been a mistake cutting this project, you wouldn't be able to guess (although I think I know where it is).

    Thanks for showing us the happy outcome.

      It came out great! I like it better with that piece missing It adds more dimension to the armor. You did a great job on it!

        No oops, just a design change. And I hear you about using the blade to remove a piece. Learned not to do that really early. Nice work on that project.

          That looks great! I have never seen the pattern, so I couldn't tell you where the design change is.

            Looks great as usual with your work IAN.

            I learned from you guys there are no mistakes just last miute sawing modifications. LOL

            I could think of a few projects that would look great on

            Again nice work

              Apart from my pattern comment, looks good. I like the red background.

                Looks great. Don't know where the oops is and love it just the way it is.

                  If you hadn't said there was an oops, probably wouldn't have noticed it. Great job.

                      That worked out very well Ian! Feels great to cut one of your own doesn't it?

                        Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

                        Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

                        Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
