Welcome to the most exclusive tool club on LJ’s Richard.
Looks like you’ve done a great job on her.
You must be excited.
I look forward to seeing the fine marquetry that this lovely per-industrial machine produces in your hands.

Well done!

Great piece of woodwork. I just wish I knew what it did… or how to use it… oh well I’d do some research…

Great build. Looks like you have incorporated some new ideas not on earlier models. I hope you can share some of the details of the build process with us.

I’ve seen what these things are capable of doing right hear on Lumberjocks. This is very nicely done.

Very nice job. Next, a video of it in operation? I have been curious about these things since I first heard about them several months ago.
