    Default Ot project

    A lady found my web site from Craigslist. She has a very old special piece of wood barn siding. She wanted two names carved on it with date. The wood was falling apart and was warped and cupped. I had to wet it down and clamp it to get it flat enough to carve on my machine. After a lot of crap, I finally got it to work.
    After I wet it down, I had to let it dry before cutting...while cutting...because the wood was so old and dry, surfaces pieces starting chipping off so I wet it again to soften the wood fibers. Well, at that point, it wouldn't cut worth a darn so I had to stop. Too many loose wet fibers. Then I thought what the heck to do. I then thought, let it dry again and give it a coat of spar urethane to glue the loose parts down and harden the frizzies. The next morning, I set the cutter down about another .020 and it cut well plus cleaned the urethane out of the low spots. What a pain. I didn't try anything like coating at first because they wanted the wood in its natural state. I called her and said what I wanted to do for it to cut well so that's it. Btw, I welded on the machine that did this The board is about 42" long

    Sounds like a dull bit/cutter head. Looks nice though in the end!

    Good thinking, that old wood is like cutting through playdoh.


    Good thing it says May 4th, May 3rd is reserved for me, my wedding day.
