  • Copper roof for my scrolled bird house.

    I tried using copper from a roll of roofing copper that I have. It's too thin and is all wrinkled (see attached photo).

    Now my wife likes it this way, but I don't think it's sellable, which by the way is my motivation to do anything with my hands.

    Any ideas on the thickness of copper needed for this type of project?

    Thanks,

      You may try opening a large fruit juice can down the side, then open it up like a book, placing it as a roof. You could then coat the can with the copper that you have.
      If you are making a series of birdhouses, you may also want to try something like this on a simple box. I know dimensions are critical when building bird houses but it will suit many of the smaller species.

        Did this thread get hacked? That is a very strange sidetrack from KyivWorkshop.

        It doesn’t matter whether the saw table tilts or the saw arm tilts. Either can be used for any project cut at an angle, and there’s a learning curve for each.

        I actually prefer the tilting table because the blade remains vertical. I find that at really steep angles, like 40 or 45 degrees,...

        This is the tapestry I found in the cedar chest. We can’t identify where the pictures are from. Two among many. I also forgot to mention dad was also in the army Fife and Drum Corps and also played with a big band when he was discharged. Have to find that info....

It’s getting the leg completely straight that is hard to do. It’s when his brother stopped in that things went off rails. Rolf, we are talking...

        If you are referring to 3D Compound cutting, the blade is 90 degrees to the table and not tilted. I use the tilting head for things like inlays and Carole's bowls. If you want a tilting arm, be sure it is rack and pinion. Look at other features that may fit your needs. As a Pegas dealer, I can help...
