Just having one of those days,
I had some glass track to run in oak.
Easy with a table saw, with a router and a 1/4” bit. Aagh!
First bit snapped, I guess I bit off more than it could chew. :)
So after that I took 16th” cuts and all went well until….......
I cut it to length a piece flew off.
Now in some shops that would not be a problem, mine is another story.
In the past I would have run a few extra lengths, but how often do folk
want sliding glass doors.
So I finally found it and glued the wee escape artist back in.
I hate waiting for glue to dry. Boring!
So I decided to cut up some scrap and make an elephant.
A very simple project that I used to give students as a bandsaw exercise.
They make nice bookends or perhaps a toy.
So nothing exciting, but you may want to add it to your Christmas toy list.
A pattern available if you need it.
