So fo the past while I have been sanding the body to shape. I was also doing anything I could to avoid facing the challenge of cutting the body apart. I was afraid of doing so because it is not a cheap chunk of wood, and also all the effort put into getting the shape correct shape made it more special. Then one day I decided it had to be done and I did it. And that new bandsaw got quite the workout. It did go better then I expected with the minor flaw here and there. after the walls were cut off, I cut the doors out of the walls with my scroll saw. When I was doing this I used a thin piece of plywood to make my scroll saw table bigger. Then when I went to cut, the added table was flimsy and made a slightly squiggled cut on one of my doors. It may not be noticeable to every one who sees the final product, but I will always know it is there and it really annoy me. I cannot trim it flat because it will not fit properly in the frame, so it will be something I will have to live with. By the way, any recommendations for a finish for this chopper?
Thanks for taking a look,
