    I gave the trivet a 5 minute bath in watco natural oil. (from Nevada--) The 275 and 350 VOC versions are sticky mess that does not dry evenly.. The original works great. California is not the place to do woodworking.. For trivets I usually give 2 baths (need one more) for all the rest 1 bath and spray with Deft semi gloss lacquer spray with 320 sanding between the 2 coats.

    The Modified Geometry Scroll Saw Blades are my new goto blades.. gave most of my Flying Dutchman Ultra reverse blades away (the same place you did).. The seem sharper and keep the sharpness.. FD Cherry I would change blades about ever 1/2 hour.. 45 minutes for Black Walnut. I am getting double the cut time with these as long as you do not get any kind of bend in them. So I am cutting faster and longer (wonder why my back hurts more?) .

    Beautiful piece.
    Great selection of wood to compliment the pattern and great execution of the pattern.

    I have noticed I am cutting much faster with these blades.. I cut about 9 John 3:16 hearts a year.. always between 4 1/2 hours and 5 hours.. cut 2 at 2 hours with the pegas blades. will have to see when I do one in cherry... .. I have been told they are aggressive and not for a beginner.

    TR007 HUMMINGBIRD TRIVET
    Pattern by Charles Hand 9 3/4 x 3/4 Black Walnut. 5 3/4 hours cutting time. Used 4 pegas modified geometry #5 and 1 #3 for the wings. A fun pattern to cut. Pick out one pattern shape at a time to figure out where to drill and cut. Just follow the lines and move on to the next. I have switched to the pegas blades after using only FD since they first came out. The blades are great (just do not bend them).. scrollsawart4u.weebly.com for pattern. 2020-03-13-15-13-47.JPG
