  • Had to use blade bacwards

    This order required me to use the blade backwards because the sign was to long for my table depth. The first letter "C" and some of the tail of the chick demanded this change. Glad I read about this in an old Spielman news letter.

            NICE ! I must remeber that tip, would using a spirle blade work instead of using the blade backwards?

              Spiral would work but it has a tendency to follow the grain and with the 1/2" thick cedar I didn't want to chance it.
              I use spiral on portraits with plywood.

                I love that sign! Would you mind if I plagiarised it?

                Cutting backwards can be quite a challenge if you forget that the blade bias is reversed !

                There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

                  Among other things. I was surprised to see 190 proof. Everclear tops out at 150 proof here in NC, but I have seen it at 190 in Georgia.

                  What was the old college recipe? Equal parts Hawaiian Punch and Everclear? You pour it into Mayo jars, put the lids on and store in the original boxes....

                  I saw a "practice pattern" to learn how to operate my saw. I decided to print out what I thought was a fairly simple pattern that would cover all the cuts and possibly have something at the end. Please tell me that the pattern lines are really just suggestions. Improvisation is acceptable....

                  Those are great! I would be interested in seeing how you box them.

                  BTW, Everclear is banned in some states but still available in others. I also recently saw another brand of 190 proof at the local ABC store here in Gibsonville, NC. (I did a quick Google and found the brand is Diesel)
