  • A New Portrait of Mother & Father

    Hi Everyone I have this portrait out of cherry in my gallery. But that one was for Mother. This one out of maple with the treebark looking frame is mine. Any comments or suggestions on the portrait and especially the frame are welcomed. Steve

        Thanks for the kind remarks. Sharon it would be nice to do my woodworking all of the time instead of making cabinets at a factory. Since Mom and Dad and Grandad are done I think Grandma will be next. Happy Holidays Everyone, Steve

            Nicely done, Steve. I like the contrast using the 'bark' frame best.

              Thanks for the votes of confidence. I was playing with my dremel and some high speed cutters to achieve that look on the frame. It gives a different look and high contrast to the maple. Steve

                  He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

                  Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....
