      Hey...Just do it...
      You've burned better wood......

      By the way... don't burn pine in your fireplace...It creates creosote, very dangerous.....

          I've cut out the pieces and started gluing them, but find that I should have made the thinner edges a tad wider, some just barley fit.

              Here's a pix of where I am talking about, sorry about my drawing, an artist I am not.... Did you put yours together yet? I had problems because I made the cut where the arrow is pointing too narrow, should cut a bit wider, and not use a 2X4 that had some knots......what size board did you use. The 2X4 around here are actually 3 1/2 X 1 1/2 , maybe I should have glued up wood to get the 4" the pattern designer suggests, wonder if that is where my problem started??????

                  Oh no, sorry about your table tilt, I cut my angle on the band saw, just thought I would not be getting a 30 inch long board very straight on my scroll saw, but that is just me.
                  Mine is almost all glued, but I have more patches in it than my childhood jeans......darn knots, thought I could miss them with the cuts. I'm still trying to get my pea brain around the concept of it all. I love the challenge of it though, and really enjoying the project. Good luck with your re cut........Yea time for DWTS no shop tonight....

                    Finally got my energy level up enough to drag the saw out and get started on thank you state magnets for for all of my critical care nurses and doctors. They truly became like family in those days.
                    This is 24 of the first 34 I am doing. These are all cut from some 3/8" wood I had intended...

                    I said in late winter I was going to make a sign for my son's wedding. Becky thought I was crazy for working on it so early, but considering my current health issues, I am glad I finished early.
                    Knew nothing about making a sign, but knew I could cut, so I jumped in--blind to some of the challenges...
