Default Face Tree

Got this pic in my email awhile back and thought it would be fun to cut.
This was also my first real try with spiral blades. ( #2) I went from like them to hating them about four times a minute. I went through 8 blades, two oh which actually did the cutting, (#2 & #8). The rest died trying to figure out the tension.
This one was for my own use because I can't find anything definate yes or no about copyrights. The link below is the best I found.

Oh NO I have to 3rd that opinion. Spirals are definitely a Love Hate relationship. Nice job I had not seen that one before.

i started with those spiral blades too,I love them because they make such nice curves, but i do hate them when they break so fast and also because they jump out the clamp so fast and each time that happens i jump almost to the roof...
Great picture, I only found 9 faces for the moment.

I tried spirals once, lost so many trying to get them to stay in the saw, I decided I couldn't afford them. Great pic Oily, I found eleven faces.

Great,,, I can not find the fox in the magazine and now you want me to find faces in the tree. About spiral blades. "SPIRAL BLADES ROCK". I use them most of the time. The do have a learning curve. I am surprised I learned how to use them, because my learning curve is a straight line.

Thanks for the pattern, I will give it a try.

There r supposed to be 12 faces in this tree? Each time I count them I only get to 10. However, each time I go back and forth it seems to me that I count different faces. I finally gave up. I am sure I have something better to do . . . . I just have to go figure it out before I go completely nuts on this tree and cut it down for firewood.

Smile wow! I really enjoy this!

I have only found about 7 Faces I think as I may be counting them more then once. It is fun to try though and would like to try and cut it out but, I think its beyond my skill level still. I could not get the second bit map picture to load. I am going to have to order some spiral blades and give them a try. Thanks for the picture, I am going to go back and try and find more faces.
