    Lion Roar

    Finished cutting this this evening. I'm pretty proud of this one. It was a challenge. Done on a 1/2" thick piece of Popular, which I will not use again for this detailed of cutting. It is too soft. It is kind of a self-framed picture. I routed around it to give it a framed appearance. It 13" x 11.5.

    No I did not use the new saw. I was about 1/2 way through when I got the Hegner and did not want to change in the middle of the stream. On the Hegner I am finding it harder to move the blade from one hole to the next because the upper arm does not lift up like on the Excalibur. It will take me some practice to figure out. I did use the Hegner for a scroll box I am working on. I like the saw.

    Thanks for the nice comment everyone.

    Paul, you have truly found your element. Very well done. Great detail.

    It feels great to sell a pen,
    It feels even greater to give one to a friend!

    Your absence won't make a difference!
