  • 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

      I appreciate the input from everyone but, I need clarify to my work? space. I originally stated my area measures 6'X10' and, it does. But, I only have about 5'X5' of available space and, that's without taking myself into consideration.

      I'll add in some food for thought too. I was unsure if I would enjoy this hobby (addiction) so I started with the Porter Cable from Lowes. I think it is a good entry level saw, 5 months later I found an Excaliber on Craigs List and have been happy ever since.

      Food for thought, When I first started scrolling my thinking was "all I want to do is this and I will never do that as it doesn't interest me". I didn't know I would be working with SSWWC or get sucked into creating Intarsia or doing large intricate fretwork, like Charles Hand designs....

      Thank you all for giving me a little more to consider. I thought I had covered everything in my mind until others chimed in!
      At least at this point in life, I'm not under a time constraint.
