  • Taking a break

    I had to get away from the insanity and madness of planning an outdoor wedding. What better way than spending some time with my saw ?

    Did this for my mom, who is visiting today as she cannot be present for the festivities next weekend. She collects lighthouses and this one is located in NC near where she lives. We have visited it many times

    pattern by earthwalker. 8 x 10 1/8 cherry ply w/golden pecan stain and deft semi. 2/0 FD " easy spiral " and FD #3 SR

    I stacked this and did a second one in red oak ply for the " stash " In retrospect, I wish I had extended the landscape portion to the edges of the portrait and brought the top down a bit
    Oh well, learning is part of the game and I'm sure mom won't mind !

    Thanx for lookin

    Glad you got to get some time for yourself on the saw!

    I have to play with many patterns also to extend out the edges, but yours looks fine anyway!

    N.Carolina has several lighthouses, if I'm not mistaken that one is Cape Hatteras? Have you been to any others? Such as Bodie Island or Currituck? I think there is also one at Bald Head NC

      Cutting Styles
      by millwab
      In preparation for a scrolling demonstration I decided to make up a piece that would show the different ways I've cut puzzles. It's 2 layers of 1/8" BB. The puzzles were cut out as tray puzzles and then glued back in so pieces wouldn't get lost as it was handled.

      Update at 13 AprilIts been almost a month since my last post and my shop extension is progressing albeit slowly largely due to me nibbling at it on a regular basis rather than sticking with it and going full blast to get it finished.

      The outside
      of the extension is almost finished apart...

      Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...
