  • Finally tried segmentation

    Just figuring out the do's and don'ts . It started out as a fret piece so there are unneeded gaps around the nose. I also should have used a blade with less kerf.
    I was trying different burrs and what I like best is 3'4" flexible sanding disc for carving and shaping. My good dremel that fits all my attachments has been sounding funny and went up in a ball of fire and smoke and the one i ended up using is on it's last leg. I hope I can finish before it dies.
    Both the piece and backer are 1/4" poplar. I used small pieces of 1/8" bb for spacers to raise sections.
    I'm really enjoying and I'm interested to see how far I can go.

                  Haven't stopped on this project. I've been very busy and working on this for fill in. I'm also been tossing ideas back and forth with Mom (Frieke) Looks like the bag will be shaped from a solid block then split and the inside hollowed and shaped wit the rest of the kitty inside and reassembled. As always ideas welcome.

                    Hey Rob - this is getting interesting. I love the way you are developing this as you go and running with ideas. Exactly my style of working - but be warned. It leads you up crazy avenues - LOL!

                    All aboard for the 'darkside'!

                      One issue I found with the insert that comes with the saw was the areas they smoothed for the kickback pawls. If the insert is leveled correctly, those areas are sitting about 1/32-inch below the table. I had a problem with some small pieces getting caught and jamming because of that. Sawstop's recommendation...

                      That is a definit rescue for a special project. I rarely get or use any pallet wood. But did use some from the pallet that my drill press was on. It looked like pine but was was very hard, carefully checked for nails and ran it through the drum sander with some 80 grit to get rid of any small grit.

                      I wish I could post the video as it looks better with the lights blinking. I used some red clear plastic behind the eyes and nose. It was a fun project.

                      Maybe a star shining to tell us something? That piece of wood is a very special piece! Good eye.
