So I’ve been lurking here for months, reading and learning as I start getting more serious about woodworking.
The amount of information and knowledge around here is amazing. I’ve learned more in reading the past couple months than I have in the several years I’ve tinkered combined. Thanks for being such a great resource.
I’m currently expiramenting with making Tongue Drums. I have some gorgeous Padauk that I’ll be using for the tops.
I’ve picked up a really nice Whiteside 1/8” double fluted straight bit for my router (After reading through many threads here on router bits) but I’ll also be needing to do some cuts with a jigsaw.
Does anyone have any suggestions on a good blade to do some really nice cuts with minimum tearout or chipping on this Padauk? The gaps will have to remain about 1/8” so my ability to really get in there and clean the cuts up will be limited plus I really want to stack the deck as much in my favor as I can to not wind up with a big chip that ruins 3 or 4 bucks worth of this excellent piece of wood.
Thanks again for such a great site. It’s a huge benefit to those of us just learning about this. You’ve no idea!!
