  • "Wolf at Night"

    This is a just completed Christmas present titled "Wolf at Night" It is about 10 by 6 inches and the cutting was done with spiral blades except around the inside of the frame.

    I have heard lots of folks say they use only spiral blades for big items. This is the backside of the cut before I cut out the edge. You can see the way the blades can change direction and the complexity of the cut. It would be a lot harder to try this with a flat blade.

    There are pieces of scotch tape holding in some of the close cuts Using Sprial blades just takes practice. I prefer them over flat blades anymore for fretwork and I do use both on almost every project. Enjoy, I did.

    When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

      Great job and pattern Chuck. I cut this same pattern sometime ago and have been amazed at the different responses to it, the main one being the amount of people who can not see the wolf, until I point it out to them, and there was one person who never could see it!!

        Very nice work Chuck....even if you did use spirals
        (Just kidding folks).
        I think I have that pattern around somewhere, it might look neat with a mirror backer.
        Thanks for sharing your work with us.

          Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

          Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

          It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

          Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
