      This sounds like a great idea. I'll put in our suggestions box/list to be considered for a future article.

      Thanks for the input!

        What kind of bleach do you people use on basswood? How many coats?

          Go to the paint/stain sectin of your local home center and look for wood bleach. Comes in two parts. Follow direcitons. Works good.

              I've had very good luck using the oven. The wood does soften, but with oak, that usually isn't a problem. It also darkens all the way through.

              He is a flash from the past where I show some puzzle boxes made with oven darkened oak.

              Thanks for the post. I have tried spirals in the past and had lots of issues. I need to set down one day and keep cutting with them until I get the hang of it. Part of my problem may have been covered by your number 7. Tried pine thinking it would be easy to cut but now realize the grain may have...

              I agree, a beautiful piece and wonderful cutting. Years ago, my father had Alzheimer. The last six months we had him in the VA center in St. Cloud MN. His wood work shop is still in MN. I could not take it down to TN....

              The best tip I have with spirals is to cut straight lines backwards. instead of pushing the work piece into the blade, pull it toward you. Seems to allow for better control on straight lines (most other lines too)
