I found out why the reading was different from my protractor  to my slide table.
On the protractor I need to start at 90 and count backwards to get it to read
the same as the slide table. I'm wishing the protractor started at zero in the
middle instead of at the ends. 35 deg. is where I'm now cutting at.

Looking great.  I have a sycamore that's been down for sometime and hopefully it's spalted and not rotten.  I would love to make an urn with some.

I'm still playing...

 

 

I used an old cans of varnish that I bought. It said on the can opened in May 1989
and was called Damar Varnish. I never heard if it before and it looked and smelled funny.
So I googled it and found that it's special varnish for oil paintings. It turned out OK.

After reading this thread, I realized an old wooden vase I had was made with the ring method.  When I looked inside I could see where the glue was oozing out of the joints.  I can't remember what I paid for this thing but I'm sure it was under $10.  It needs refinished.  Gary
