Default My first compund cut ornament

Took me a little while but I got the job done. My blade did once again cut into my table insert so ended up taking it out to finish the cutting. I used the jig that I made from Steve Good's pattern, but I'm going to make that jig longer. Any way, here are a couple of pictures of the ornament that I've got cut out. I like the jig too as it seems to eliminate all that taping. The jig held the wood in place until I was done with the cutting. So now after I get warmed up a bit, I'm going to go down and fix that jig and then maybe cut another ornament. Have a great day and enjoy.... Fay

Looking good Fay. Keep up the great work. Thanks for sharing this with us. What blade size are you using to cut them with?

I used an FD # 3 UR blade on this one and it cut pretty good. I just got done making another one, but it doesn't have the fret work on it. It just has a little hole for hanging and it is pretty close to the same shape as this one. I'm proud of it. Have a great day Fay Oh forgot to say the wood is poplar

Great job Fay.

For the record, I do tape after the first outside cut is complete to keep it from moving when cutting the other side.

Fay very nice. You will find an larger and more aggressive blade will cut those a whole lot better. I cut over 100 compound items per year and I use Polar blades for all my compound cuts in either #5 and #7. Using a smaller blade like a #3 will tend to give you more blade defection. Using a UR type of blade gains you no advantage as tear out is not a problem with compound cutting.

Fun isn't it? When you finally peel off the four sides it is like finding a treasure in side.
Looks nice.
