  • 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?

                        Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
                        I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
                        For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

                        The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

                        Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...

                        Sawstop instructions are some of the best I've ever worked with. Each part comes labeled with a letter to match instructions, hardware in color coded and labeled to match labels and colors in instructions. Full poster size instructions with pics in addition to manual instructions. Could only find one...

                        So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.
                        I like the fact...

                        Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....
