      Although the letters seem a little misplaced, I too think you done good. What is that glittery background you used? I like it, and can think of a couple projects I have here that would really look good with that backing. and a note to your son from me... for protecting my country and my freedom! Dale

            Hi Jerry,

            I know your son will like it! For those of you looking for that Metal Flake backing. If you have a Hobby Lobby Store in your area, they have something like it for about $2 each for a 12"X12" sheet in several colors.

              If that background is 'paper -ish', you might consider what will happen when moisture hits it. An alternative would be Blue Mirror Acrylic.

                GF, I think you forgot the CH in front of the AIR. Just kidding ya', I tell my retired Air Force Dad that line all the time. I think you did good and he will be mighty proud to have it. I thought of puling the plug myself as my 20 year mark is in May but I am going to be a super lifer and stay until 30 if they let me.

                Once again, good work, and congrats to your boy for making it through the gaunlet.

                  He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

                  Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

                  I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

                  You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
