      you did a nice job...

      but it looks a little to glossy...
      did you use a gloss clear coat or take the picture while it was still wet? (which I have done)

      personally, I like the clear satin finish...

        Trout, it is a very high gloss lacquer. It seems like around here the more shine the better they sale. Steve

          Nice work, Steve. What do you use to create your patterns?

              Hi Mike, I use the software that came with my kodak camera to flip the photo to coloring book, a paint program to clean up the unwanted parts and good old fashioned pencil and paper to add some detail that the computer just don't do for me. Thanks for the kind comments from all. Steve

                  Hi Everyone, well I delivered this portrait today and I received many positive comments on this piece. The lady was showing it off all over at work and I believe it is going to generate a few orders. It certainly gives a sense of pride when a customer shows off your work. Steve

                    by Rolf
                    I just finished rebuilding my friends 2nd EX 21, This one was in much better shape than the first. No rusty bearings this time but I re-greased them anyway.
                    I adjusted the front back motion and and the blade is also at 90 degrees to the table when using the locating pin.

                    I used...

                    If it means the difference between cutting something and doing nothing, then go for it. It might not be the choice of most of us, but we aren't working under the same constraints as you. Hope it works out for you. Looking forward to a review, once you get a few miles on it.

                    After totally over-thinking this, I have decided to go ahead with the Micro Mark Saw. It will enable me to do everything I can imagine in my limited space and budget.
                    I thank everyone for offering advice, and I look forward to receiving more. As soon as I get it and set it up, I will post pictures...

                    Figured it out. The photos were Live and I had to edit them. As you can see, we were quite lucky they didn’t come crashing down in a storm. The last picture was a 2 trunk tree. My son already split a truck load today.

                    Next project, the roofer next week. Yippee....
