Christmas came early this year. I was at a WW show in Pgh last month and sprung for a new toy…er …tool that I have wanted for years…..Legacy Ornamental Mill. http://www.legacywoodworking.com/siteMap. UPS tracking # states it is due to arrive tomorrow and quite honestly I’m more excited than Ralphy waiting on his Red Rider BB gun. I know some LJs out there own this tool. I am interested in any tips or shortcuts that might lower the learning curve. Always nice to learn from someone else experiences or should I say mistakes. I hope to post a blog on the assembly and set up when it gets here. Maybe someday I can post a cyber skill share if I get good enough. Oh yea, Mot I discovered a new technique on explaining new tool purchases to the spouse, not that I haven’t used the Boxless Sneak Technique. Take her to the WW show and let her watch the demo of the machine and it will sell itself, that a little groveling and the promise of a new entertainment center and living room furniture. The results “if you really want it honey go ahead and get it”.

I’m excited for you. I’ve seen them at the show and they are pretty impressive. I belive Mark DeCou has one.

Dock,
We wait with baited breathe. I wonder how many Jocks remember Red Ryder and Little Beaver. Sometimes I wish old Fred Harmon was still around bringing us those comics. It was an easier time. I too am interested in aquiring one of these. Be sure to post a lot about it. And thanks for the tip on the wife. We’ll be waiting too.

Hey Dock,

I have a 900 also and this is my first project: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/2841

You can see mine behind my workbench here: http://lumberjocks.com/jocks/GaryK/workshop

I would recommend watching the videos that came with it and taking notes. Pause it and
write down their formulas. I would also write down in your own words what you see also.
That will help you to not to have to refer all the time back to the video.

Buy some cheap wood and practice with it first. That’s about it.

Good luck and enjoy!

Gary

You might show your wife my wall unit http://lumberjocks.com/assets/pictures/projects/9577.jpg

I used a friend’s Legacy to make the rope accents.
