Red face Well, It's Standing...

And Boo Boo #1 on the Display Stand Project. Hopefully, it will be the only one.

Not thrilled with the birch; I imagine that's because I don't have what's necessary to cut it without it splintering on me. What I want to say about the suggestion to use it, I'll keep to myself.

Fortunately, I may be able to salvage the project, because I have a spiral bit for my router; and when I decided to throw all caution to the wind, and try it (at the suggestion of another router friend I called in desperation; either I called them or burned everything to the ground. *shrug* PMS is setting in; what can I say.) Anyway, it took a minute to get used to how it handled, but I got it.

The boo boo came from trying to adjust the tabletop belt sander with it on, and the large piece of shelf in my hand; yeah. The belt got me. After I cursed, I heard Ken say "That's gonna sting..." which made me curse again, for not having at least a band saw. And THANKS to this blasted Baltic Birch, I now have a microscopic sliver in my index finger that I can't see, but I can DAM sure feel it! *UGH*

So there's my story. The display is standing, and I want to make another corner, and maybe one straight shelf. We'll see. I still have to hand sand, and stain it; that will be tomorrow. I ran out of LP in the tank, so the heat was gone. Ken's promised to get me three tanks of LP tomorrow morning.

Many Many MANY Thanks to Brian and Mike for their work on the diagrams. I wouldn't even be able to say I have a display if it weren't for you two; and to Nick, also, who was the first to rise to the task of attempting the project. I am forever grateful to you.

Nicely done, Barb! I think a Band-aid is in order...you don't need blood stains on your project...

Nope, no blood; Ken got the bactine out, so I cleaned it, got a kiss to make it better from Ken, then two band aids ("because one don't hold worth sh*t" Ken said )

I've got O+ if you need a transfusion, didn't you read the MSDS on BB, the splinters turn clear when they enter the body, and may last for years.
Just saying,

Well done. Sorry about the difficulties cutting the BB and the sliver. Try scoring it with a razor knife prior to cutting and using a very fine toothed blade in whichever saw you use. I have on occasion used painters tape over the line to be cut. My jury is out on that approach. Another thought, depending on the type of saw you are using make sure the finish side is cut on the down stroke.

Next time you cut BB, put tape on the cut line. Green painters tape works best. Cut with the face side down when using a jig saw. With the kind of stuff you're making, put a WEN or Rikon small band saw on your future tool list. The two are identical and handle jobs like this with ease. I keep a half inch blade on mine, but you can get a narrower blade for tighter curves, but the half inch does straight lines better. It has about a 6 inch throat and although it wasn't made for it, I was able to resaw with it.

Don't know if the stand comes with the WEN, but it works really well on a counter top. I wouldn't use less than a 3/16th blade, but with it you could make raindeer or band saw boxes

No more splinters, the tiny ones are the worst. Sometimes I try to dig them out with a pin, but it only works when I make it bleed and the splinter flushes out with the blood. Nice of Ken to kiss it and make it better.

And. what you produced looks really nice.

I do cuts like that with my scrollsaw. No problems so far, and I've been doing that for a long time.

Well, good to know that I have a supply of the same blood type as I have, Herb

As for the MSDS my bad.... *giggle* it sure did turn clear! Still ouching this morning! Gonna have to get out the magnifying glass and search it out, I guess.
