          Very nice!

          That is really nice.

          I'm curious to what the technique is on doing something this size.

          What is the setup you used? (Workmates, sacrificial table...)
          What type of jigsaw blade?
          How long did it take you?

          Sorry about the many questions.

          Curiously,
          Marcel

            Old Dust. nice job. very detailed. not so easy on a jig saw. I too started out cutting things that way. as a matter of fackt i did the back board of the Grand Geneva clock with one. but not as good detailed as this project. really nice. I would hang that on my barn. but first fiber glass it. lol. your friend Evie

              Actually I cut it with the board siting on top of my utility trailer. Just moved it around to do the cuts. I used an old Craftsman Jig saw witha 10 tooth per in blade. Drilled access 1/2 " holes for blade. Took about 2 hours to cut then used a triangle detail sander for fuzzies. Finished with 3 coats of outdoor laytex enamel.

              The only hint I can offer in using the jig saw is to overcut at sharp corners and finish cut from other direction.


              Here is another outdoor project I did but these sillhouettes were done on the scroll saw as they are smaller.

                  The wagon wheel was purchased from Harbor Freight for $16. It is made from ceder. Just some finishing sanding and poly coated.

                    Great job.

                    I was wanting to order some moose patterns to do the same thing with for our yard, but wasn't sure how it would turn out. Now I've actually seen it done and it looks great. So maybe I'll order those patterns after all.

                      He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

                      Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

                      I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

                      You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
