  • Segmentaition saga continues

    I am really starting to like it and looking forward to trying something a little more involved.
    I even got brave and started to do a little carving.
    I even got lucky and all the attachment for my burned out dremel work on my old one. That gave me back my flex cable making things much easier.
    If you don't mind I'll keep posting progress reports.
    Thanks for putting up with me

    Looking good, Rob. You've got me beat if you can do that kind of carving and shaping with a Dremel tool. Mine spent more time flying across the shop than it did shaping stuff before I gave up and stuck it in a drawer. You know, it's a very short step from there to using different colored woods instead of painting.

        So far I've used a couple sizes of round burrs, a cutter, 80 grit flap wheel and 3/4" flexible medium sanding disc. None of them tried to grab or launch anything. What tool were you using? I did have to glue a handle to one piece so far. I test each new tool on a piece of scrap first to see what it does and how it does it. I'll post pix.
        Pointers and advise are always welcome

            It's always nice to see a progressing piece.Hard to anticipate the final result. These days we all expect instant gratification.Looks good.

              Rob, you are the MAN! I don't have problems with the Dremel throwing pieces of wood across the shop. I have trouble with the Dremel making terrible cuts, sanding off too much too quickly, putting gouges anywhere I get it near wood. I can now throw the Dremel all the way across the shop and out the door with very little effort.

                Here ya go Jan, These are the ones I've used so far. Just use a real light touch. The one to watch is the drum sander. I also don't work long on any one place and keep moving around. I try to visualize the over all shape and the detail seems to show up on it's own.
                I doubt I could do anything from a blank. I think I'm relying on the detail coming from the pattern and saw cuts.
                I'll see if I can figure out a way to do a short video and you can help me figure out what I'm doing.
                I don't want to know too much. I do too many things because I didn't know you can't do it that way. I used to play R&B and Jazz sax and someone asked once if I could read music. I said yes but not enough to hurt my playing.
