Very nice! I think I saw a demo on how to do this on Woodsmith Shop last month. Yours are far superior to the ones demo’d. You could definatly make some jingle with those at the craft shows!

Did you just EYEBALL the routed leaf, or did you have a pattern?

I have just seen it Joe and what a beautiful job he’s made, in fact I’ve now put it on my “try it” list. One thing that I think will make it easier for me will be the use of the ski mounted router which will allow me to SEE exactly where the bit is and what it’s doing. As I always say Joe, The easiest thing in the world is to improve on an existing item, the clever one is the one who comes up with the idea first, as in this case.
