      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....

                    Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

                    Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

                    Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
