    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.

                        He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

                        Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

                        I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...
