      Burning weather it is in a stacked piece or any piece can be caused by a few things and can be relieved by doing a few things. First look at the method you are using to cut by because you say you only get burning on inside cuts. What are you doing different inside than outside? My guess is too much sideward pressure when cutting and there maybe more detailed cuts inside than outside. So start there by trying not to push sideways on the blade when turning and let the saw blade do the work. Next use a good sharp blade. I find the Flying Dutchman blades to be the sharpest and stay sharp the longest. You can get them at www.mikesworkshop.com

      Now two things you can try with the blades you are using. Besides watching for sideward preasure when turning you can take a file and round over the back side of the blade. This will relieve some of the tightness in the kerf when turning. Next a lot of people use clear packing tape on both the top and bottom of the stack. There is something in the makeup of the tape that lubricates the blade and does not contaminate the workpiece. This works well Try it. Doing all three things plus getting Mike's blades you will have no problem stack cutting. One other thing let the blade do the cutting no excess presure.

        Meanwhile, another giant palette wood airplane

        While still trying to summon the courage to finish the final version of my Gotha bomber, I got sidetracked and stumbled upon some plans from two years ago: a giant four-engined brother to my earlier Fokker Trimotor... The ultimate 1930's dieselpunk engine.

        THe plans were designed for 1/2...

        He went to his meeting last night and it was a tool swap. He came home with - Jet slow water grinder (?), new never used air brush, and a never used spray tent that exhausts to the outside and an extra tent. All for the grand total of $35....

        For you and hotshot , remember to hide notes, chicken bones or beer cans in the stud cavities for the next remodeler to find.

        I am partial to the folks who hide plastic skeletons in dead spaces under stairs, etc.

        Celtic knot-shamrock cross
        by Ennobee
        My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....
