    Accidental Shop Art

    There was some sawdust on my outfeed table where I laid a piece of MDF to measure something out. When I picked up the MDF to move it to the tablesaw it sucked air up through the dog holes and left this pattern .

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    I'm shocked - shocked, I say - that you had that much wood dust in your shop.

    Once you've done it Glenn, please do tell me how to do it, I have several pieces to sell for that price and even less if a customer pops up.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Interesting dust art
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.
