Default I cut some chess pieces.

Friekie forced me to do it.
Her set is soo nice I have to try cutting some too.
I'm not sure where I got the pattern.
These are just shy of 4".
The wood is mesquite.
I cut some 2" blanks from some limbs. They have been drying for a couple years so they are really hard to cut.
Mike suggested a #7 Polar blade and it worked very well.
I need to smooth the edges with my "sand-o-flex then oil em up.

I was thinking of Palo Verde, another desert tree.
But then I have to get some first.
Arizona State Tree - Palo Verde

Hah. I cut a HUGE Palo Verde out of my front yard in Rita Ranch about...8 years ago. Too bad I didn't know then what I know now lol. You could've come and gotten as much as you wanted...

Very nice start on your chess set. Do you play?

Thanks for the offer Kenny. I know some landscapers here that may help.
Frieke, Thanks. I have 7 pieces cut and a very soar throat from it. I didn't wear my respirator.
I will get back to it soon I hope. Waiting on some blades from Mike. I tried some "other" blades that were in my arsenal, but they just didn't make the cut.
