  • Janette's Bobcat

    Wow, this has has taken me a very long time to complete. When It came out in the magazine I knew I had to make this one. I had got started on it right away, getting it cut then set it aside. I knew the shaping was going to be the key with this project. Well the time was finally right and I got back to it. It is hard to tell from the pictures all the attention to detail I have in there. I spent 3 days in the shop shaping it, probably a total of 20 hours. I dug deep into the reserve lumber pile for the woods I wanted to use. The bobcat itself is english walnut. The rocks were from a burly claro walnut board. The log is some wild grained cocobolo. The tree is spalted maple, Janette's looked so cool with it so I used it as well. The face has a variety with a majority of some reddish quartersawn sycamore. The rest is some hickory and rosewood and curly maple ears trimmed out in rosewood. All the stripes are rosewood as well. I wanted the legs to stand out with the most figured part of the english walnut board. So I am proud to present my version of the
    BILLYBOB CAT.
    This one is not going anywhere other then on a wall in our house. I knew it when I 1st saw it in the mag, I have to make one for us. This is one of my favorite patterns that I have ever seen, and deserved all my abilities. I hope you approve Janette.

          Absolutely beautiful. Great selection and matching of woods & colors.
          The good woodworker does not craft the wood for honor. He uses his craft to honor the wood.

              My many years on this earth has taught me that the only 5 minutes job is writing a check to have someone else do the work. I also learned that Murphy was an optimist. You took on an ambitious project and stuff will happen. It will be great when you are done. The good news is you are retired so no...

              The difference between 30° and 45° is amazing on my EX-21. The vibration at 45 is much greater. While having the flat table is great, I have to tilt the saw to the left to keep the upper clamp knob from beating my fingers to a pulp. I cut a lot of bowls-from-boards so I'm used to it. I probably wouldn't...

              Great idea and a nice job of puzzle making. There is one more option that I use to make puzzle. That is cutting along the shapes in the picture....

              Great job on a difficult pattern. When I want to add color to BB I usually stain the BB before cutting.
