Default First Signs

Well my table saw took a dive on me the other day. The gear for my bevel axis slipped off the other teeth and still to cold down in the shed to mess with it for a few days. So I played around in the house with my B&D Plunge Router and new bits I got last week and knocked out my 1st signs. I have to admit I donít think they turned out to bad for using that bulky of a router. Pretty sure they will get much better after I get my Dewalt DWP611. Still have to trim the one down to size, route the edges and stain them with some Pecan Minwax later today. Wife loves her early Valentine present and Iím sure my mother-in-law will equally love hers as well. Comments and criticism welcomed...

Those should earn you some brownie points.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Frank the new bits cut great. They glided right through the wood without any drag. Made it tremendously easy to control my bulky plunge router. Really wish our mineral rights check would get here so I can get my DWP611. Got a feeling me and that lil' Dewalt are going to become the best of friends.
