Default Re: Jewelry box and Marquestry

Peter,

I have an RBI-Hawk scroll saw that I use on some of my thicker veneers (3/32") but started with the little "bird's mouth" jig that was in Steven's book. I can change the bevel on the jig to set it for whatever thickness of veneers I use as the double bevel method requires the angle of the blade to be set according to the combined thickness of both veneers as you are cutting them at the same time. I cut the mother of pearl and shell using the small jig and jeweler's saw. The pieces are too small and precise to use the scroll saw.

Laurie,

I play the piano, have for many years. I have 2 sons, a daughter and son in law that all play the guitar really well. They teach me basics and any song I'm interested in. Not that I can play it when they leave but.......I am teaching myself to play the guitar now via books, internet and youtube and some group lessons which are alot of fun. I know how to read music and tab. Kind of how I learned about marquetry and inlay.
