  • Love of the game

    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

            Rodney, I will admit I'm in that group. The younger people are too busy with kids and getting a good foothold in careers to have time for hobbies. I know I didn't even start scrolling til my daughter went away to college. I've loved it ever since!

            Thanks Linda. I have tried a wide (pun intended) verity of thicknesses. I cut a Mother's Day rose that was at least 1 1/2 inches thick. That's where I learned that I was doing too much pushing against the blade and not letting the blade and saw do the work. The thin strips between frets would cut through...
