    Very nice Bill. I assume the reason you went to a larger blade than normal is because maple is harder than BB ply. I know you normally use size 2/0. How wide is this board?

        The truth be known Mike, I only have a few 2/0 blades left and I want to use them on tomorrows project I've got more ordered, they just haven't arrived yet.
        The board measures 7 1/2 x 12.

        Thanks Mike, Daryl for the compliments.

            Bill,

            Another great cut.

            Isn't your wife getting lonely, or is she involved in some way in your newfound passion?

            Regards,

                Man ya'll are starting to give me a guilt complex

                I do have the wife helping out in several ways, first she cuts the black felt backers for me and applies them to the backer board, she brings me something to drink when ever I ask for it (cuz she loves me).

                Really, I dont feel I spend a whole lot of time at the saw, I try to get 2-3 hours a day on it and at least 8-10 hours over a two day period when I am off work (my day job) well sometimes I do have a scroll a thon on my days off and I will spend more like 10 hours at the saw on each day off.

                The "Need for Speed" piece took me an hour and 20 min. to cut, I then spent about an hour staining several pieces I had already cut, then mounting several others that I had previously stained and that where ready for mounting. I also took about 15 min. to apply the pattern and to drill the holes on the JZ project I am going to start here this afternoon, time management at it's best

                Except for a couple of shows on TV, I'd rather be at my saw, and when ever I take a break from cutting or watching TV, I stop by here to see what ya'll are up to.

                Sleep? Bah! Plenty of time to sleep when we die.........

                  Awesome job Bill.

                  Your comments on the time you spend on the saw kinda get procrastinators like me in trouble
                  See I can always say, "that project will take me hours"
                  Well it would about 3 hours to decide when was the right time to cut and then another hour cutting.

                  The funny thing is I really enjoy cutting. I just need to get over the procrastination part. I saw a book at the store the other day about beating procrastination. I may pick it up sometime.

                  Back to the cyclist. That is great pattern. I may have to break down and get some more spirals.

                    AWESOME job Bill!!! Thanks for your time management description. I am hoping to get some more shop time soon. Flooring business and back are starting to conflict more often. Starting to turn down some jobs just to get a day off. Sometimes it is hard when $$ is good.
                    Keep up the great work and looking forward to your next 'masterpiece'.
