These photos are again from my old album, however we finally bought a new digital camera to replace our broken one so I will be able to get good pics of my latest woodwork and art.

The green blade is 7-1/4” and hangs in our kitchen. The others are 10”. I’ve sold a lot of the Canada geese scenes, and they are fun to do.

The oak display stand came from a library ladder that showed up in our warehouse. It got kicked around for a long time until the operations manager suggested I use it for the stand I was planning for the painted, warped blade from the crating shop.

Wouldn’t you know, as soon as the display stand was milled up, the boss came looking for it. He was okay with it after he knew it was a mother’s day present.

Love the mallard Phil if you ever need some big blades let me know (I get 16” for my saw at work )and althoughthe center arbor is quite large you might like them.
Drop me a note if your interested. You could have them if you pay the shipping costs

Thanks for the offer Rick. I’ve got about 20 such blades waiting for paint. I chuck them into a beat up Milwaukee metal chop saw and cut firewood till they’re well used, then clean ‘em up and paint ‘em. I had to make a spacer as the arbors are quite large as you said.

love them – especially the framed version.

My neighbour has a saw for my mom to paint – it stands about 5’ tall. She is not sure how she is going to manage this for painting purposes

They’d make some beautiful clocks.
