  • 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.

                    Sorry to hear that Scott. Bruce had it but I never did. And I try to isolate from Bruce whenever I can. 🤪 We were even around our son and grandson right before they were diagnosed and nothing for us. I guess I overdid the shopping Carole. I tried to sign onto our bank tonight and it is “temporarily...

                    My saw is in a severe state of depression due to alleged abandonment. We have been clearing Becky's office since her retirement. She one of the last two original occupants of that new building in 2001, so it has been a lot of trips to the recycling bin with student thesis files, convention papers and...

                    Whatever therapy works for you - is a good therapy. Glad your touch/retail therapy was beneficial for you Betty.

                    Scott, I am so sorry to ear that you and your wife have both had to fight through Covid. I hope this means that you are both on your way to healing, if a bit slowly....
