  • Cutting thicker wood

    I have trouble when cutting 3/4 inch wood. I don't 'push' my work through, and try to keep it straight, but the exit hole on the bottom is always different than the line I've been following on the top. Therefore, when I turn the work over, the design isn't as nice as the top. I'm using a Craftsman 16'. Can anybody tell me what I'm doing wrong?

      I use acrylic paint mixed with water to stain when I want vibrant colors. There was an article in one of the issues awhile back where a product called "Unicorn Spit" was suggested for the colors---and many people swear by it....

      Oh my gosh Betty....Your son is fortunate to be alive. How badly stung was he by the hornets? Electrical shock is crazy dangerous. Wow.
