« Part 31: From one foot to four feet... Part 32 of Torque Workcentre at work.. series Part 33: What cutter? »

I got this dirty old piece of log… actually half a log… someone had split it down the middle … with both an axe and a chainsaw… fairly ugly and unstable… Using MDF cleats I pinned the log to the TWC and ran a surfacing head over it… flat and smooth… cross cut the ends and rotated and bookmatched for legs.. drilled some holes with a forstner bit for some tea candles… nice centrepiece for a table..More pics of the finished piece here..

I have to say that a present like this is more than money can buy. I also have to covet your toys. :P

real nice Larry.

Can we get some closeups on the surfacing head cutters? is that like a flycutter for milling? or like a rotating planer cutter?
