  • Peace On Earth Candles

    FINALLY got this piece finished and it's for ME! This one is NOT leaving the house! I've made this piece several times, but this time used different woods .... bloodwood and cherry candles, sumac and poplar leaves, shedoah (sp?) needles. Flame is pine and cedar, plaque is nogal and letters are maple. Baltic birch ply is the flame's glow.

    This is a JGR pattern (not in a book but purchased separately). It's the first pattern I ever bought, is still my favourite, and I suspect it always will be.

    It is well done and kudos on making something for you. It is not very often we make something to keep.

        Very nice! I don't think I've seen that pattern before.

                  Nice colors Lou! Nice to see you making one to keep. I always say I can make another one and never do (to keep that is)

                    Excalibur 21 repair #2
                    by Rolf
                    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....
