  • Next wood review

    Hey everyone,
    I did the first wood review on poplar...and for the holiday issue, I'd like to review something seasonal...but the only wood I can think of is Holly or Pine. Holly is out of my budget right now, and I'm not ready to do pine...any thoughts?

    I was thinking Oak...Yule Log...but that is a bit of a stretch...

    Fir, Spruce, - gosh, most of the conifers have some connection to Christmas. How about cedar? There are several varieties, but any of them might be OK and not too expensive. If you used the aromatic kind, your work area might be moth - less. (or smell like a clean hamster's cage!) I think you could stretch the yule-log concept to cover just about any native wood - there must have been a time when almost anything served in that capacity. Donch'a just hate it when there are too many choices?

      hard to beat Sandy's suggestions.

      Maybe stretching things to the max..... cut a partridge out of a pear tree.

        How about aspen? Is that close enough to your theme.

          That is a stroke of genius!

          I love the idea of a partridge in a Pear tree.

          It's got my vote.

            A family friends father passed away and he was an avid bird carver. So my nephew is helping the family sell some of his tools. I bought this air cleaner and will b uy most of his carving knives and burrs. And no that is not my workshop! Not even close. ...

            I just did a quick job on my table. Charles Hand has noticed that the adhesive on the new rolls of Contact brand shelf paper leaves a residue. He has changed to The duck brand. I just bought a roll and covered my table with it. It is a tough slick surface. It will be interesting to see how it holds...

            Yes, they can be used for hair. If they are made a little larger than the original, the shawl pins will work great in the hair!...

            Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

            I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...
