      Some folks do notepads out of paper, some cut metals, some cut corian, you can cut coins and antler. You are only held back by your imagination and the thickness of the project.

        I've cut various woods, brass, copper, sterling silver, sticky note pads, and acrylic. I'm sure there are other things, but those are off of the top of my head. Each material has it's own technique, but these forums are a great help when you want to know how to cut something. The chances are that someone here has already tried what you want to do and will be happy to help.

          Wood includes a very wide variety of solid woods (hard and soft) as well as plywood.

              I have an implanted spinal cord stimulator to help with back pain. They also have warnings about welding. I could not get one when I was working in an electric furnace steelmaking shop as the electrodes were over 1000 amps and volts. I have also decided to stay away from welding as I just do not...

              Shrink wrap systems
              by Linda In Phoenix
              What do you use to shrink wrap, and what do you use it on? Lately in the puzzles section I've seen a couple of you mention shrink wrapping. I've considered such a leap. Even though the basics are all similar from manufacturer to manufacturer, it's still leaves some questions. Maybe others have...
