Default Thank You for tips & tricks!

I decided to try my hand at compound cutting an ornament (one of the newly published patterns), and while it didn't turn out perfect (my pattern slipped a little), the tips on here about lubricating the blade with tape was GOLD advice.

I have very little experience cutting thicker pieces of wood, and in the past it's always been quite the chore. With the tape - such a simple addition! - the blade glided through SO much easier.

Thank you to all who suggested that method. Now... to make a clamp for future cuts...

You have to cut the new ones a little slack. LOL

Mike I have to differ with you, I got the NPDH early on and it hacked me off something fierce, because at the time I didn't know how to post pics. I got over it but it took a little while so I would never use the phrase, I'd suggest they put pics on and help them to learn how. Some of us aren't computer nerds :-)

Way to hold back and show some restraint there Mike - good thing you didn't post how you really felt!

Whine whine whimper whimper grumble grumble. Ok - posting pics. My cat helped. You can see the bottom of one side is waaaay too thin, where my pattern shifted. This is a total rough cut - no sanding, cleaning up or anything (mainly because, yes - in ND right now, it was around 5F today, and my garage is cold!).

Not bad for a first attempt at compound cutting. Nice looking cat as well. Did you glue your pattern down or just taped it on.. I was curious on how it slipped?? I must have done about 100 of those new compound ornaments and practice does make it easier. Looking forward to seeing more of your work. Thanks for sharing this one with us.

I don't think I've ever seen anybody use their cat as a backdrop. Must be a very understanding kittie.

Nicely done, especially for your first attempt.
