  • First Stack Cut

    Did my first stack cut today! Don't know why I haven't before, but, I love it! I notice though there were more "fuzzies"on bottom. I was using a #3 Olson blade on 1/4" baltic burch stacked two deep, at about 90% speed, and blue painters tape under pattern and around edges. Any advice to have less "frizzies"?

    Go to Flying Dutchman reverse or even better FD Ultra Reverse.
    That will eliminate 90% for the rest use a propane torch. Make quick passes and don't over heat the piece and make sure it is laying face down on a flat surface so the heat doesn't go through the fret and darken the front.
    The best place for FD blades is Mikes Workshop. He very reasonably priced and fast. Santa would come in 2nd in a nice guy contest to Mike.
    How was that Mike? LOL

        Oily is right on the reverse or ultra reverse blades. Further, I have heard of people wrapping the entire project in tape (top and bottom) to drop the fuzzies.

        With the ultra blades, I have minimal fuzzy and usually hit them with an emery board to cut them down.

Tony: [I][B] I'm agreement with the flying Dutchman blades , I'd try another blade No. 5 and try slowing down on your cut speed also . Beleive you me - slower is better and you'll find this out . I have cut a lot of 1/8" BB Plywood and cut five at a time and used a no.5 blade and slowed it down and I don't have any frizzies at all .....I don't used the tape at all I do use a Cheap Harbor Freight heat gun to remove my patterns ....Steve Good used one once in a video I saw and I've been hooked ever since .....MB

              Tony,
              When you do not have enough speed you have a tendency of pushing too hard into the blade. This makes the blade grab the wood instead of cutting it. With higher speed you will aslo have better control. Let the blade do the cutting, they say.

                Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

                Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                Was it a good idea.....?...

                Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
