  • biggest project for me

    This is a customized for for my old boss at the factory I used to work at. A fairly simple scroll project, with the exceptions of wood that is between 1/2" and 1" thick, something I never hardly cut. The Chinese lettering is not the bad part, it is the framing that gets me. I had to re-saw once and try again because the edges did not match up, so I placed it on the table saw and ripped again. So now here I am gluing it together once again. Still having a hard time getting things to match up and the edges to look right, but I am getting there.
    Hopfully will be done by Monday so that I can deliver it.
    Made from little pieces of cherry, a cherry ply backer and Bubinga.
    Oh and now my camera is broke too

      Coming together nicely. Good job
      Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

          Marshall, the Bubinga was much harder than the Cherry. The Bubinga is 1 inch thick.

            Oh, Cherie, this is a jaw-dropper! Absolutely gorgeous! I'm so intrigued by the frame -- where on earth did you get the idea for that? WOW!!!!

              Patte, the customer would have been happy with just a plain squared frame, well I was not so I drew out a design I thought would be fitting. After researching Chinese designs and all, this is what I came up with. So far the customer is happy.

                  Really love the Chinese writing and hope to do some in the future as a project. The frame is a marvellous way of bring ing the whole thing together.

                    That frame is amazing.
                    It's only a mistake if someone saw you do it.

                    It's not about what saw you drive. It's about the skill you drive it with.
