  • new project finally finished

    this was a task , im not happy with the choice of wood, but happy with the end results, this was from a pattern by jacob fowler, i finally got flying dutchman blades and what a difference , i want to do one like this in curly maple, any tips using this type of wood , like is it hard to scroll, will the blades have a tendency to follow the curl, what blades would be best? etc.

          Nice work I always use prirals on fretwork only because you don't have to turn the wood also you can use them like a mini sander if you miss a little of the line.Jerry
          Don't worry be scrolling

            Very nice cutting of an intricate pattern. Remember, only you will see the mistakes. Thanks for sharing.

              Lefty - you shouldn't have any trouble working with curly maple. Just keep the speed down and your choice of FD UR blades keep you straight and clean.

              Great cutting

                Really nice work Lefty. But when you say "thank you , it came out great even with all the mistakes" let's refer to those actions as "minor adjustments" LOL

                  So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.
                  I like the fact...

                  Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....

                  Way to go, Betty. Our farmers market does not allow craft sales.

                  Two great customer service stories on this forum in a week. There is hope. Even in 2020.
