    here's the ducks that I've been working on the last couple days...

    they look pretty cool with the black background


    The ducks are 3/4 cherry with a couple accent pieces of basswood and walnut..
    I fumed the cherry with ammonia to get the different shades...

    here I am hard at work with poor neglected Fred...

    Beautiful Trout. I agree with the black background - awesome.

        Looks great. Luv the ducks.

        Give ol' Fred a pat on the head for me. He's adorable too.

                Trout, I was never really interested in intarsia until I joined this group!! Between you and Jeff, my curiosity/interest has really grown!! The ducks are awesome and you make it look sooo easy. Maybe just one more little push and I will be over my fear and give it a try!!

                By the way, I agree with Kelly, Fred is adorable!!!

                      I have to say it looks better in person.....and the pattern is a Judy Roberts..

                      I wanted to be all done with it before I started bragging but yesterday turn out to be a very busy day. It all started off with the traveling tool show that came to town. I put the $50 that my mother-in-law gave me for Christmas to good use.
                      Even though I've been on holiday all week, I'm still on call for the security alarm calls..things had been pretty quite until yesterday. I was sent out to 5 different school sites, boarded up 3 broken windows, made out 2 police reports and all this was happening while I was waiting for my wife to get home with my 1/4 BB plywood that she picked up during her lunch hour..

                      another reason I bragged early is because today I need to go to a funeral and then get ready for an all night fishing trip..4 of us are going sturgeon fishing out on the delta in one of the guys new boat, we must be crazy because there saying it's going to get down to 20 digress tonight...

                      hopefully Sunday I can give a finished report on the ducks and stories of big fish being caught...

                      here the stuff I got from the tool show..

                      $3 for 50 sheets of assorted sandpaper..
                      $9 for the knive set..
                      $6 for the small sanding stuff..
                      $8 for the big sanding sleaves..
                      and $14 for a new winch for the boat trailer..

                      thanks again for all your nice words of encouragement..

                          Wow..absoluting amazing. This is why I want to do scroll sawing. How did you manage to get that circle so round? By the way, I love both the light and dark backgrounds!

                            Very nice job Trout. Your working in sox!! My wife would kill me. I would be tracking sawdust all over the house. Then again, NO ONES shop is as clean as yours.

                                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...

                                Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

                                That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....

                                Just a word of caution about the size of the blade hole. When I used a DeWalt years ago in the infamous community woodshop, and also with my more recent experiences with the Jet, if you do much bevel cutting at a steep angle, you will cut into the table. That's why inserts have the slot that can be...
