  • 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!

              I have an implanted spinal cord stimulator to help with back pain. They also have warnings about welding. I could not get one when I was working in an electric furnace steelmaking shop as the electrodes were over 1000 amps and volts. I have also decided to stay away from welding as I just do not...

              Shrink wrap systems
              by Linda In Phoenix
              What do you use to shrink wrap, and what do you use it on? Lately in the puzzles section I've seen a couple of you mention shrink wrapping. I've considered such a leap. Even though the basics are all similar from manufacturer to manufacturer, it's still leaves some questions. Maybe others have...

              Brrrr. Glad you got to sell a little. I miss the people interaction. A lot. I hope you found some pretty pieces of wood at the store!
