      Thanks for the kind words, yes she actually likes it quite a bit, normally things I make dont please her as much, but her theme is Palm Trees, Flamingoes.

        Pleasing the better half is an admiral goal. I'm glad she liked it. Keep up the good work. Thanks for showing us.

          Great first real project. And if I read this correctly you sliced the wood with a hand saw? That in itself is impressive.

              Very impressive first project. But like Rolf, I am amazed that the pieces were cut with a hand saw.

                Very nice. I don't know if you planned this or not, but the grain is just perfect. It makes it look like the palm leaves are blowing in the wind. I can see me using a hand saw to slice wood - not.

                  Thank you for the kind words....and in terms of the grain, my better half suggested which pieces to use, and the orientation. Hand sawing, well had no choice, I wont try and slice on table saw, and piece was too tall for little bandsaw, so .....

                    I've watched many of Alex Fox's videos. You did a fine job on this one. I will have to give it a try....

                    Hmm, I read on another message board that the thumb screws are the same size.. and they said they used their screws they had from their old clamp because they had bought some special steel ones with a knurled knob.. so I guess I would assume the screws would work.. then I also read where the only difference...

                    I called suppliers of the Pegas blade holder and none of them could answer if parts were available.I asked mainly for the tip replacement on the thumb screw.

                    I was never a fan of Craftsman power tools. I always though they were for "homeowner duty" and for most normal usage they are great. For heavy duty usage I go with higher end brands. My dad was a big fan. The only Craftsman tools I used heavily and still do are the mechanical ones, wrenches...
