  • Defender of Freedom

    The knight pattern was modified, I took the cross of the knight's chest, off the horse's forehead and off the shield. In place the Air Force symbol was drawn. I cut it for a guy who retired yesterday after 25 years of service. Walnut frame, baltic birch for the knight, bubinga for the matting and oak lettering.

    Please let me know what you think, thanks.

            When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                Nice work. Looks great to me. I have always wondered why someone would cut letters like that, and not make use of the fact that they are using a SS rather than a bandsaw to cut stand-alone letters.

                Beautiful piece there,

                I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it.

                    Talked to him yesterday after he was coherent. Very fortunately, it was dc current. He said ac current and would have ended differently. And it wasn’t a house. It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

                    Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

                    Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
                    HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
