  • Giraffe Scene and Puzzle

    I enjoy making puzzles for my Grandkids and they enjoy putting them together. My favorite puzzle designer is Dave and Judy Peterson who have published so many in the magazine and in books. The one with the Giraffe family was really cute but I decided I wanted to make it into a African Scene. I cut the Giraffes from quarter sawn Sycamore. The background is some blue pine, ash and poplar. The tree which I tried to make look like and Acacia Tree is walnut and poplar. I tried to shape things to make the puzzle scene more 3D. I enjoyed making it and the Grandkids really like it.

          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....
