    The Blonde Guy Does Some Flatwork

    This barely qualifies as flatwork, but at least I did use the table saw and router table. And I actually had to measure stuff. Oh, the horrors!

    The sign was done by Pete Simmons (discussed in this thread), and I finally cleared off the table saw so I could make some cherry molding for a frame.

    It's nice to know that after quite a while of being used as a finishing table (with an appropriate cover)for bowls and hollow forms, the ol' saw can still cut a decent miter.

    Thanks again to Pete for the great sign...it'll get a test run next weekend.

    Very Nice

    Very nice! I knew you would do something like that to make it look great.

    I still like my magnet setup to hold it to a craft show table.

    Very nice Vaughn. The frame detail fits perfectly with the lasered sign.

    I still plan put magnets in the back and use your "metal under the tablecloth" trick for displaying it.

    I think that easily qualifies as flat work...it's very flat!

    ...and very nice! (it really spruces that tree up too! )
