I really like the design and the pictures don’t show the flaws, always remember that we are our own worst critics so don’t be so hard on yourself.

It looks pretty awesome in the pictures… You might just need a new blade or dry spray lubricant. I bought some new frued blades a while back and it was like night and day.. also, pb blaster has a dry spray lube, spray the table top and the blade and it will be good. Nice work though!!!

prattman is right on when he says “we are our own worse critics”.
I like the designe!
Check the brushes on the motor or maybe a new blade would help.

Thanks fellas, I bought a freud ripping blade and Irwin fifty tooth combo blade. They appear to be a bit wobbly and so, I think the arbor might be bent

I think it looks great! Good work, I’d hate to see what my attempt would look like.

First of all, from here it looks fine.

Second, don’t look at it as a failure, look at it as a successful justification for new tools :-)

Good job. That is a really tough design to do.
It looks great from here, but I am disappointed with mine too. Other people just love it.

Keep trying,
Steve

Nice job. Your self critique reminds me of a friend’s comment on wallpapering. It was pointed out that when you’re actually doing the wallpaper, every small mistake screams “you did it wrong, it doesn’t match.” But, after a week or so all these “mistakes” disappear and the job looks great. I’ve found this applies equally to woodworking projects.

Looks good to me also.

Remind your other half that you would not let her use a sewing machine that was that wobbly . :)

Wow, Look at that, the joints don’t line up :) You will always see the flaws. Most people that look at this are not woodworkers and the flaws will never be seen. I think it looks great. If you know what went wrong Don’t make another one until you can correct the problem then try again. I have been there I know the feeling.

-- Have a great day.
