    Forstner bit sounds good!

    I showed it last year at the fair and asked a young lad if he knew who the man in the whale was.
    He smiled and with delighted glee proclaimed
    PINNOCIO!

    Oh well

    Thank you.

    I hope you had fun cutting them, and I hope you didnt have too many go wrong from those darned instructions.
    Well, if you recall, you gave me a 'sneek peek' at a hand drawn pattern a when you first posted your picture in the gallery. We were cutting them out before the Magazine came out... this was just our first chance to sell them.

    We don't cut the little man out. We use a forsner bit to drill out the back of the middle section and then on a thin piece of wood that fit's, drawing jonah on that piece. I like the idea of having to take the puzzle apart completely before finding Jonah. On our 'demo' we had out... Jonah would almost 'pop' out... then I would say, "There you go, Jonah was just spewed out unto Nineveh."

    Hey Carl...

    Thought you'd like to know that your Jonah and the Whale is a big hit.

    Last week at our Christian Family Camp we sold out of the basic puzzle (40ct) at $3.00 each. We packaged them and sold them as Jonah & the Big Fish...(a more accurate term). We also sold about 15 smaller versions my son cut out of Zebra Wood and put on a key chain. Those sold at $5.00.
    A local Christian bookstore is ordering some 'whales' along with some of our other items.

    We've not recieved pictures back in quite awhile. (really need to invest into a digital camera).

    Thanks...

    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...
