My bandsaw is only a 14in and my machinery weak link. It’s powerful enough to cut 4in Rock Maple cabriole legs easily but not enough grunt for serious resawing. I do my resawing on my table saw. It cuts 105mm above the table, anything over...
About 8 years ago I supplied, as a steady earner, conventional mirror frames to an antique dealer. I scribed one offcut to the other one afternoon, just as a lark. The joint was interesting enough for me to cobble together this mirror. It lived ...
