    Make sure your work piece is on a flat surface so the heat doesn't get to the front side. I also use that method to help darken the inside of cuts if the piece isn't to be stained.

      But then someone might mistake it for being laser cut.

          Been there, done that and scorched my workbench...but a good technique especially for very delicate fretwork. I now prefer to use a RT blade for very delicate cuttings or to stack cut with a sacrificial 1/16" bottom layer.

            Hey Guys n Gals.... Long ago when I began....3 years ago.... I DID experiment with using a torch to get rid of the lil fuzzies. THEN....it worked good....BUT....Hey I was introduced to FLYING DUTCHMAN blades.... Been using them for most of last year till now and cut different types of woods and using the FD-UR #3-#5-#7 there is just VERY, VERY Little use for using the Butane torch. Mine is collecting cob webs. LOL Anyway....Danny :+}

                I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

                Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

                He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver. I made a pot of chili on Sunday and got 6 meals out of it! As for payback, I’m getting a new shed in the spring! I had to do my flap...

                We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
