  • I decided I needed a challenge

    2 patterns for one basket. They aren’t glued yet. I’ve had these patterns for years. I make one set occasionally. I have a customer that wants something different so I’m sure she will like these. The challenge is the glue up. 3/8” walnut Bruce sliced for me #3R Pegas MG blade. Thinking price of $60 each. Will post pic when done.

          Looks great, the glue up on these layered baskets is the part I don't like.

              Beautiful work.

                Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight to do my glue ups? A blacklight flashlight. It does work.

                  Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed spots. Thanks for the tip!

                      SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are looking for. Then ask what kind of a laser do I use. Then when I tell them the process, they’re hooked! New, repeat customer. Maybe I need to raise my prices.

                        I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

                          I doubt there will be many, if any, Carole. Bruce reads a lot and comes up with some of the unusual most useful things.

                              I needed a small flashlight for the house and right next to the correct size I needed was a UV flashlight and after reading this thread, I put it in cart as well. Probably overpaid, but I have had other black lights in my younger days and liked playing them, so young Jim will get to tinker with old Jim's new device.

                                Dan, your questions are a little tough to answer without knowing a little more about this puzzle you're cutting. That said, here are my thoughts:
                                • First of all, it would be helpful to know the overall size of this puzzle and how many pieces you're thinking of cutting it into. 1/2" BB is pretty

                                Hey Denny---I shot you an email with a few questions. I might just have to dip my toe into the world of Pegas blades vs FD. At least to try! Open minded explorations. Thank you ! Linda
