  • Victorian Bridge

    Here are just a few pieces of the Victorian Bridge. Duan, Sliver Silver, is helping and he has cut a lot already. Maybe we will post some more pictures soon. Like to take it to Branson. Duane likes to enter it at the fair in August. Pedro is working on some other fancy patterns, can't wait to see them.
    He is working on a article for SSW magazine. He made a special pattern for that and knowing him, it will be a good one.

      Very cool !! I'm so glad someone is cutting this, I hope you get it completed and bring it to Branson that will get alot of oohh's and aaahhh's.
      I'd have to add another room to the house just so I could display it properly!

            Duane and I really got to work on the Victorian bridge. It is close to being done. Here are a few more pictures to keep you up to date. I am sure that I will be able to take it to Branson. Duane wants to take it to the fair and see if he can't get the Best of Show.

            We are getting closer

                  Mike that is just awsem. I wonder, how do you guys join the middle of the bridg together. looks kinda fragile. I can't tell buy the cutouts. are they dovetailed cuts, or butt jointed ? I would love to try this pattern. you probley said already, but save me some looking , and tell me where i can buy this pattern. I wish i could go to the picnic. so I could see this all together. I hope you will continue to keep us all informed. looks like alot of fun. you have a message.

                              That is just awesome! I want to order that pattern and the Eiffel Tower, as well. That is just beautiful work you should bring it to the Fox Open House.

                              Thanks for showing it to us.

                                The first thing you need to Check is that the upper arm is parallel to the table! Check your manual on how to set up your saw. From the specifications the max cut depth is 2.05 inches so you are at the saw limit. I like the Pegas MGT series. The MGt 5 (11.5 TPI) or the 7 (10.4 TPI)...

                                I don't have much doubt that I asked these questions to Denny in an email back when I got my Pegas saw from him. But none of my saved emails were transferred over from the old computer to this new one.

                                Since what I use mostly is 3/4-inch pine and 1/4 inch multiply which pegas blade would...

                                Great work and patience needed to pull off these smaller toys. You did a fantastic job! I really like them.

                                I'm curious to know what type of paints you use if you don't mind sharing the brand name.
