  • My first project

    My first project after cutting a bunch of key chains. I started sawing late last summer, made key chains for all my friends then I saw Steve Goods patern on the Wolf Clock and decided to try it. I cut it out of Poplar with a 2/0 new spiral FD blade, then I made several others (Eagle, Deer, Humming Bird, etc) for Xmas gifts.

      Nice did you like cutting with the spiral blade? I tired them one time and could not get the hang of cutting with one after using flat blades all my life.

        This looks nice but the picture is blurry. Faster shutter speed, tripod or brace yourself next time....

        Looks great for a first tiime cutting.

          Halawiid, I used the 2/0 flying Dutchman New Spiral and one thing I've learned is not to run the say real fast, it makes it hard to control. It's also harder to cut a straight line that is very long with one, but a pattern like this with all the zig zags it's perfect.
          Hammer, I took this pic with my cell phone and that was as good as it got. I'm a pretty good Auctioneer but a lousy photographer !
          I'm just now getting to where I can cut with a regular blade.

              I have made a number of those Harvey puzzles. They are a lot of fun. You really need to be patient and let the blade cut. Even the slightest pressure can ruin your puzzle piece fit. My go to is a Pegas #3 MGT....

              Congrats on your pending retirement and gaining a new daughter. I have been retired close to 6 years now and I have no idea where the time went.
