  • First project cut...

    The saw got here at 6pm yesterday and this got finished early hours of this morning. It's not 'rough' it is 'artistic'. lol

    It's the name of my granddaughter. Her brother is due the end of next month, I'll be asking his parents not to give him names that use A, B, D, O, P or Q.

    Those inside cuts were fun. Almost as much fun as trying to keep to the lines I'd drawn.

    The nameplate is resting on the ply packing piece that came with the saw. Would have been a cool touch if they'd printed some patterns on it. lol

        Your effort deserves praise, little more practice with inside cuts, and you will be saying to yourself....well done.
        Don't forget to sign and date it. Good luck to all involved with the upcoming arrival.

          Thanks all. With it being a hand drawn pattern, I didn't care too much about going off the line, just wanted something to show the folks. They don't know how much it went off line.

          I've been messing about with some 3mm mdf and am not yet capable of following a curve properly. Getting better but imo am not ready to cut into something that isn't already scrap.

          I know a steady methodical approach is probably best but for now I just want to improvise and see what happens.

            Nice! Keep at it and soon enough those inside cuts will be a breeze! Your granddaughter will cherish this when she's old enough to see the value of a handmade gift. Priceless!

              Well, yesterday, I shot my 18 in the morning. The grands came over and I got one of em to try it out. I had to demonstrate so I got another 12 or so in. Last night I finished up with 90 for the day. Going to challenge myself to one hundred arrows a day for one hundred days. Made an excel spreadsheet...

              For me to write something like this with my woodburner, even with the fine ball tip pens, is just not possible for me. The variations in the wood grain really complicate things.
              The laser doesn't care about grain....

              A few weeks ago Elliott was looking around and saw a bow and arrows in the rafters in the basement. PopPop I didn’t know you had a bow and arrow. I don’t. It’s Mimi’s. Been a long time since I used it. Maybe I should get it out again.
