  • After 68 blades, 2 1/2 weeks and 10 six-packs--

    Finally finished "Spirit of the Warrior" from the current issue of WWC.
    My saw liked the pattern by Jeff so much it kept eating blades.

    I liked what I saw while burning off the fuzzies with a pencil tourch I decided to do the front that way too. I like it.

                the singeing (or scorching, or whatever) really gives it a rustic feel.
                Very good idea!

                      Great work John.
                      How thick was the wood that you used? Did you use a spiral or flat blade?

                      Thanks for letting us see a picture of your work.

                        I stack cut 4 1/8" Baltic Burch ply & Cherry. I had to use #1 flat end spiral because the 2/0 with the end twists would not hold in the clamps and broke even more. I found that my problem was that I clamped the bottom of the blade at the full bottom of the clamp. This would not allow the clamp to swivel and the added stress caused the blades to break. I now lift up the blade from the bottom clamp a hair before securing the clamp and have no problem. Sometimes I have to snip off a little from the top of the blade to fit but that is OK since I snip at about a 45* angle and helps with finding the bottom feed holes.

                              Beautiful, It is hard to come up with new complements when everyone else beats me to it.
                              I have a lot of respect for anyone that completes one of Jeff's complex designs. It takes a lot of patience and concentration.

                                Improvisation is certainly acceptable, but some patterns are less forgiving than others. As someone else already said, learn to follow the lines as closely as possible. If you wander from the pattern lines, it is usually best if it is intentional. It takes some time and practice, so don't get too...

                                The lines matter if you are making a multi-layer project if you need things to line up, otherwise it's artist's interpretation.
