now for a really fun optical illusion board, a bulge board. in the first pic is an example of the type of board. i will be making 3 of them to sell at upcoming craft sales. i've already figured out how much lumber i will need for all nine boards, and started out with the fun part of the bulge board, cutting almost 500 (144x3=432 plus extras) maple and walnut plugs. in order to keep going with these projects, i had to repair my rip fence. i had to replace a rod that goes through the center of the fence, and is threaded on each end. snapped the rod clean at the handle end. i guess i'm too tough on them, that's the second one in the 10 years i've had this table saw.
