  • Here's my broken cheetah....

    We're back to working 12 and 14 hour days again, so I haven't had much time for the saw or the board lately, but I wanted to post a pic of the cheetah that I was whining about breaking a couple weeks ago.
    I know a lot of people have done this pattern (and the larger one), but I had been wanting to try it for a while. It didn't turn out quite as bad as I had originally thought.

    Looks great to me! You're being too hard on yourself. Remember, have fun and the rest falls in place.

              This whole thing is about having a good time while you cut. We've all made stuff that doesn't come out right. I know I can always see all my mistakes, but the person who ends up with my piece (my wife included) always loves it.

                  Thanks for the responses, I really do appreciate it.
                  I am my own worst critic, I'm pretty anal about just about everything I do.
                  This is a very fun hobby and nice folks like everyone here keep it that way!

                    Hi Joel, Nice job indeed. I have to agree with everyone in the fact that you are being to much of a critic of your own work. I used to do the same thing though. I soon learned that some deer only have horns on one side or none at all. There are three legged animals at least in my collections. hehe Having fun is what it is all about. Steve

                      You did a nice job on the cutting Joel. That is a bit difficult. After a while you start seeing spots.

                      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.

                        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...
