  • Florida Holly/Brazilian Pepper

    Any of you southern carvers here tonight I have a question. The field behind my house is covered with pepper trees. It seems that they grow like lightening and are straight as an arrow flies. I know that they are on the destroy list, Florida considers them to be a hazard. Does any one know if they carve well?? They seem to be perfect for walking sticks. 1 1/2 in diameter and some are ten feet tall. I think I will cut a few and try them as soon as they dry. Any opinions will be appreciated. ??? ??? ???

    Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

    Now,...

    It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

    Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
