  • Roses for Mothers Day

    I made 6 of these for friends for Mothers Day. The pattern is by Judy G. Roberts. All are made from aromatic red cedar with poplar for the leaves. Of course with all the green poplar I use I put a light coat of homemade stain. I hate the thoughts of the greenery turning brown after a while.
    And to all my friends here--Happy Mothers Day.

                Those are very nice, great colors. What JGR pattern is that? Is it from one of her books? I have both of her larger one's and these are a bit different.

                  Never mind Fran, I did find the pattern. It is from her small intarsia book.

                                I just did a quick job on my table. Charles Hand has noticed that the adhesive on the new rolls of Contact brand shelf paper leaves a residue. He has changed to The duck brand. I just bought a roll and covered my table with it. It is a tough slick surface. It will be interesting to see how it holds...

                                Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                                I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...
