    Something for the eyes to play with

    Just realised that it's some time since I showed my face, output has been much of a muchness for some time (see bits and pieces) but have started a new line mainly to try and improve my cutting accuracy and dimension control. The aim being to take the wood straight off the chop saw and assemble the glue-up.

    From what I'm seeing, I'd say your chop saw it set up about as perfectly as it can get. Great design and very nice execution, Chas.

    Very very nice. Someday I have to try some of the things you do but I already know they won't get posted.

    There is skill you have that needs to be preserved somehow.

    Beautiful Chas. Really like the pattern and glue ups look tight.
