Amazing video Carter! Even though I only have dial up access I still waited the hour until it finished loading to watch it. Wow, wow, wow! Amazing how fast you spin the wood and make great cuts!

Hi Carter,

Earl stole my WOW, so I have to give your video an OMG, that is truly awesome. You have quite a gift there brother, Bravo!!!
Whenever my wife sees stuff on The New Yankee Workshop with Norm Abrams, she says "can you do that?" and my standard reply is "sure, if I had all of his tools".
Well, I have the same saw as you, but If she saw your video and asked, I would have to tell her..............."Nope"

Great job, oops99

Carter,
One thing I forgot to ask, do you use anything on your saw table to make the wood turn so easily, like wax or something? It seems so effortless in your video.

Thanks, oops99

Hey, Oops, I hate to disagree with you but...yes, you can! Get a picture, glue it to some 1/4" wood and start cutting. Actually, I've cut some Yankees pictures, taken from baseball memorabilia calendars, one of Joltin' Joe and another of the 55 world series. Phun puzzles!

I don't wax the table. I don't want it to be too slippery and have the cuts run away from me. The smooth surface plus the thin layer of minute sawdust that's always there is enuf. When I make a turn, I am barely pushing down on the wood, just the slightest pressure from my fingertips, often only with one hand. And since, for that briefest of moments, I'm also not exerting any pressure forward, the turns can be made easily.

Sherri, I'm afraid you have inflated my ego. I can now say that someone waited an hour to see me in a movie!

Seriously, thanks to all of you.

Carter

I should tell you that I had to scrap a couple of the videos because I couldn't put the pieces together fast enough when I had finished cutting them.

So, with sincere apologies for the amateurish nature of this, here it is:

the speed you cut the pieces is amazing.

Default Finished!

To complete this thread, here is the finished puzzle, front and back. I haven't counted the pieces yet but I think it will end up about 320 or so. It looks as if my wife will be a little challenged by this one.

Have phun.....Carter
