    How long did you work on that piece Brent? Are the intricate intarsia patterns what you most enjoy?

    I don't think I could focus on one project that long... I believe it takes a huge committment. You should be proud.

    Take care

      Brent - That is a beautiful project. And I agree with Toni though it is one of my dreams to complete an Intarsia project and can only continue to dream of it turning out that nice. Commitment, time involved, I don't think I have the attention span required for a project like that!? ~Paul

              It's a magnificent panel. Well done !

                how long

                The hidden forest took me about 4 months to finish. Of coarse i did not work on it every day.The enjoyment to sit at my saw allows me to think of the blessing the lord has done. When I work on a special project for somebody I think about how much I love that person and what they meant in my life.The time in the shop takes me away from the rat race and the struggles of life. I love the hobbies of working with wood. I guess since I was just a small child being around tools have inspired my desire.I love projects to do for my kids like building a wood fence are redoing a bath room are building patio what ever it is.People at work can"t understand why I like to work. But I see it as a enjoyment.

                        I have the Pegas replacement table for my EX21. It was the best investment that I made. The best part is they eliminated the useless vacuum holes and reduced the size of the blade hole as well. Another benefit was the table stiffened the EX21 frame eliminating much of resonant vibration. It is a much...

                        That's what I was wondering Betty: If these would work (larger) for hair?

                        The perfect solution when I need a wider top on my Hegner. A magnetic sheet! I decided not to get the Pegas as the only reason was for the wider top and the top feed blade. After 19 years, my Hegner is still running like new and I couldn’t justify the expense. It was a “want” and not a “need”....

                        Good idea Scott. Also, my daughter has long, curly hair. She twists it up and around and sticks a pencil in to hold it. I also stick a dowel in my hair when working and my hair gets in my way and I twist it up. The one in this picture would perfect for thick hair.
