    Cut this 1 then tried something with the finish I had never done before. Used my torch to burn the wood a little around the cuts before applying a poly coat to it. Sorry for the crappy cell pic.

    I like it Mudnutt. The burning around the cuts, I think gives the player more motion.
    Very nicely done

          I had cut a 2nd 1 and tried a 50-50 mix of lemon oil and paint thinner on it. Think it came out better then the last 1. I like how the grain got raised on this 1. Also no poly on it in this photo.

          Another bad cell pic

            Celtic knot-shamrock cross
            by Ennobee
            My wife fell in love with the shamrock cross pattern in the spring issue of SS&W. So I had to make her one as soon as I found the time. Off course, not being able to leave a good pattern alone, I decided to turn it into a segmentation using some real hard broken pallet wood I 'disposed off' at work....

            Hi Jim.
            glad to hear back from you. I have been absent almost just as long, but that was just because my 9-5 morphed into a 12-hour a day job due to... Something with the economy I guess. So yes. Good luck with your house. How come I have the feeling that after all this work you'll end up living...

            Had to smile at that, as I bought that exact same hammer drill, for about the same reason

            Reply to Scroll saw table angle??
            by jim_mex
            I have my Dewalt mounted onto an adjustable metal stand I made which after setting the table at different degrees of inclination I find 7 1/2" degrees to be fine for me. However before deciding on whatever angle you want to set the table you need to decide what seat height of stool or chair you...
