    Indeed you have! great job. Actually a great job on both. I think the biggest problem with the first was material selection. I really do like that style of pattern.

    The latest one is awesome! I like the grain and I like the beveled edge you gave the wood....I think it is beveled.
    Fine lines and a much steadier hand than the first time through!

    Congratulations on making such a fine piece

      Thanks. I beveled the edge and burnt it with a torch to give it that bark effect. The first ever piece was luan by choice for practicing and getting the feel phase. Cut alot of test pieces and had alot break because of the luan voids.

            Very nice job cutting that pheasant. The "bevelling and burning" technique looks like it works well.

              Both are very nice works of art.

                Without the complete schematic it is hard to know what is correct.
                That said, it is a multispeed blower that obviously has a controller board. That board varies the power to the motor. By doing what you did you bypassed that. You put power across the low and high windings. If any thing connecting...

                If he connected to red and black and the motor spun wouldn't that indicate the motor is grounded? Without connecting the white the circuit isn't complete and the motor should not spin.

                The reason for the smoke is incorrect wiring, posible melted insulation between motor windings and motor frame.

                You mentioned connecting power to the red & and black wire. Did you do anything with White wire? Per the lable on the motor the black wire is high the Red is low. White common...
