    Before you toss a foam brush strip it. The plastic stiffener makes a great glue spreader, fuzzy chaser etc plus a piece of dowel.
    Cheaper than foam brushes. Foam packing material. You can make your own brushes. They also make great glue daubers for fretwork. You can get glue on every part of the piece without getting much if any glue in the holes.

          I've had very good luck using the oven. The wood does soften, but with oak, that usually isn't a problem. It also darkens all the way through.

          He is a flash from the past where I show some puzzle boxes made with oven darkened oak.

          Thanks for the post. I have tried spirals in the past and had lots of issues. I need to set down one day and keep cutting with them until I get the hang of it.

          The best tip I have with spirals is to cut straight lines backwards. instead of pushing the work piece into the blade, pull it toward you. Seems to allow for better control on straight lines (most other lines too)
