  • This is what happens when you inhale too much sawdust

    I just finished this one up. I'm pretty happy with the way that it turned out but I do have to admit that sometimes I go a little overboard with my patterns. It's entitled "Odd Couple" and is cut at 11 X 14. It took me 20 1/2 hours to do the 829 cuts involved and about 44 blades or so.

    Awesome job!!! The detail brings out the slightest expression.

    But 829 internal cuts? Whats that work out to......6 cents a piece??? You are twisted my friend, twisted...... at least it's in a good way!

        Awesome and stunning to say the least! I'd say you have every reason to be proud! The paitence and persistance to finish a project like this speaks volumes!

                          Is that a JZ pattern? Looks like it.

                          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.

                                In preparation for a scrolling demonstration I decided to make up a piece that would show the different ways I've cut puzzles. It's 2 layers of 1/8" BB. The puzzles were cut out as tray puzzles and then glued back in so pieces wouldn't get lost as it was handled.

                                Update at 13 AprilIts been almost a month since my last post and my shop extension is progressing albeit slowly largely due to me nibbling at it on a regular basis rather than sticking with it and going full blast to get it finished.

                                Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...
