Instead of using a metal square for the straight edge use a wooden one. We are woodworkers right? Make one out of a good hard wood about 1/8th to 3/16ths thick. Also any glass cutter will do just fine. Find a small can, put in some small torn up rags, then a light oil. Dab the cutter in the can before each cut. I worked as a glazier for about 12 years. This works pretty good
Maybe we can all give this show a bit of time to mature. I seem to remember some of the responces when Norm use the "biscuit" or,,,,,OMG the 'brad nailer". We all learned to love Norm. Tommy has a way to go, but maybe he needs out support. So I will wait a while and watch what happens. Hope he can make the changes and make the show a success.
I too enjoyed the show. Ok, its a bit fast. Maybe Tommy needs to have a longer show or break it down in a couple of weeks. Give the guy a chance. We do need to support our craft.
Very nice piece Frank. Guess I need to come back to Waco and learn a bit more from you. See you soon, Gary
What is that table doing in your living room? You said it was for your girlfriend. Did you marry her? (smile) Nice work on that table. Really like those curved runners.
If your making a bunch of lap joints its hard to beat. Well if they are rough cut lap joints that is. Still hard to beat that way. (with a dado blade)
A bull legged frog!!! I LIKE it. Very nice work.
I think for the most part that hand tools are the way to go. Gimme a hand cut dovetail any day. Don't want to see machines take over small shops.
Love that finish too.
