  • golden puppy clock

    My granddaughter loves animals and I just had to knock this one out for her yesterday for Valentine's Day. Start to finish was about 2 hours (including painting, gluing and finishing time). It is about 6" x 8" and cut in 3/8" maple with a 1/8" bb ply backer painted brown. I sprayed a couple of coats of shellac on it for a finish. The pattern is by White Tail Designs from the Jan 2008 issue of CWWC.

    I bought some FD spirals from Mike recently and this is the second project I have cut with them. I used a #2/0 regular spiral (0.024 kerf) blade on this. I like them for the larger veining lines they produce, and they really cut quickly, but they don't allow me to make very sharp inside corners. Oh well, you win a few and you lose a few.

    As usual, all criticisms and comments that make me a better scroller are greatly appreciated.

          Thanks folks. It was fun and easy to cut and she loved it. Mommy says it's hanging in her room already.

              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...

              You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
