  • This weekends projects

    Hey all,

    Just thought I would post some pictures of the projects I was working on all weekend. I am getting more steady with every project.

    My question for this thread is does anyone use a rotary tool to clean up their projects? If not what do you use?

    All the patterns below came from Steve Good's site at Scrollsaw Workshop

    Nicely done. Nope I don't use a rotary tool for cleanup. I do use one when I do some intarsia style work. I use sanders, mop sanders, files etc.

          haha, They are very easy cuts and very easy to sand the edges. I got them from Steve Good's site. There are some other nice door toppers there too.

            Good stuff!

            Rotary tool just gets me in trouble though there have been a few times I used it to knock down a bump before finer sanding. I have created a collection of sanding sticks in various sizes and shapes to clean things up. Some or square with sandpaper on multiple sizes... some very tiny and flat.. some from dowels. I uses sandpaper role with sticky back or just regular sandpaper and some spray adhesive.

            My wife also gave me some emory boards also that come in handy.

              Sweeeeet cuts Dave, that little box sure is popular. Well done on all projects.
              Thanks for the pictures, posting them certainly is not mandatory here, but sure is appreciated.

                He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

                Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

                I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...

                You are one busy lady. About how long does it take to cut one?
