  • 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.

    Keep up the good work.

      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.

              After totally over-thinking this, I have decided to go ahead with the Micro Mark Saw. It will enable me to do everything I can imagine in my limited space and budget.
              I thank everyone for offering advice, and I look forward to receiving more. As soon as I get it and set it up, I will post pictures...

              Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

              Next project, the roofer next week. Yippee....

              Betty, I just tried a test, using a standard jpeg file. I clicked "upload attachments", then selected the photo I wanted to upload, then double clicked the photo, and it uploaded without a problem. Go figure!

              When I try to upload pictures, why is there an X next to upload attachments? I hate computers.
