Being an avid timber worker , I always appeal the fundamentals of why we cut things straight !!
Having just changed my blade on my jigsaw , I failed the fundamental of checking the blade to see if it was straight !!
I was cutting some MDF ,with a staight edge as my guide ,when I noticed something was seriously wrong ,
as the jigsaw blade danced thru the MDf like “Fred Astaire”
As I was trimming this MDF sheet for another project , It rather quickly became a play piece of MDF !!
The result is the mirror of this project !!
While the lines the jigsaw danced to were not so exagerated , after I straightend the blade , I got to work on “The project I never planned “
It was good fun cutting these shapes , It,s like a free flowing freedom as I had sketched out a ruff design , while not worrying too much if I went off the line !!!
Once I had it cutout !! I used the first one as my template and knocked up 4 others to that shape !!
This is a seascape I painted on it !!! easy to do, with art paint & then spray laquered , I thought this would be a different piece for the bathroom !!
Wife calls this mirror a Tribute to Jaws !!!
I call it a Tribute “Fred Astaire”
Thanks for having a look !!!

P.S. Perhaps the manufacturers of Jigsaws should re name the speed settings , instead 1 – 6 what about : 1 Tango 2 Foxtrot 3 Waltz 4 Rumba 5 Cha Cha 6 Rock’n Roll
