  • Scrolling CDs

    Has anyone tried scolling ornaments from CDs? I know a couple of years ago there was an article about how to do it in one of the magazines. I'm guessing it's like cutting plastic, only thinner. I've got a great big ol' pile of AOL cds that a friend decided she would collect for me

    Instead of throwing them in the trash I thought I would go ahead and try cutting a few out and give them as gifts. The secretaries here usually do something small, in the $5 range. I figured this was better than that - free, except for the blade and my labor.

    Just wondering if anyone had any experience. Thanks

    that sounds like a good idea. You could also cut slots halfway through the cd's and then you could put two or more cd's together for a more 3D effect.

    I would guess that you might want to use masking tape on both sides of a cd before cutting them, or you might get some chip out.

      So after much debating, I bought a Sawstop table saw--the 36" contractor version, and now have a roll-your-eyes story too.
      I got a few discounts from my favorite hardwood store for buying from them. Yay!
      In a small shop I couldn't live without the mobile base.

      Bruce and the tech from Laguna finally caught up with each other after almost 2 weeks of phone tag. Bruce ran the sander for the tech and after checking a few things, it was determined it’s the bushing, probably. They are going to send a bushing for Bruce to replace it. If he has a problem replacing...

      Bruce lets it soak in on the cardholders, takes 24 hrs. I let everything drip for a few minutes then wipe excess off. 50/50 takes longer to dry than 40/60. I usually move everything upstairs and turn the ceiling fan on to to help it soak in. This finish takes 3-4 days to dry enough to take to shows....
