    Default Sweaty Palms

    I've done several slab projects before but this time . . . . the customer brought in the slab and it was just perfect. He had done a great job prep as there was less than .05 variance end to end, top to bottom. So the sweaty palms came as I hit enter to start the first cut! I did a 60* v bit carve on the outline to relieve the edge of the letters, then a pocket inside the letters, then cut the letters from sintra, then press fit them into the pockets. I'm glad it's done and the customer was very pleased. Russ

    I know what you mean! Many times before I hit start....seems like I have to pee! Nice job with the 60 degree bit. I always pick up something new here!

    Never start a project you don't intend to finish!
