Make Something says:

Technically the mitered angle should have been cut at 44.8°. I didn’t know it at the time so tilting my blade to 45° was slightly off. I got lucky that I was only off by .2° and the error was actually in my favor allowing me to get nice gapless corners.

Garden State Woodworks says:

That’s awesome! 👊🏼

The Wood Lab says:

Came out great! Love the powder coat and how it made the leaves look. I've used the tip of burnishing the corners a few times too. – Jim

Michael Barry says:

Counting crows, Alanis, Everlast, Local H, Live… Nice playlist

Justin Courts says:

If you put it under a window it could also serve as a death trap for a burglar!

Alex Clark says:

What is the hex-code on your cap?


Thom spillane says:

So freakin cool!!!

Woodacre says:

Just watching the music videos in the background.

Stumptown Woodworks says:

Not my style of piece in the end but the way you cut the miters 🤯 I'll be watching that several times for sure. And the powder coating, had no idea a color that could basically pass for chrome would be possible. All around great, really enjoyed it

Snapjam Woodworks says:

Tapered miters…AH-HA! Now I know! Awesome project!!

Brian Finnigan says:

Great sculpture. Nice to see a mixed media art piece

Scott Ward says:

Really dig the artistic aspect of this project. Very cool method to get the mitered joints. Thanks for the inspiration.

John Turner says:

Very cool project. I like working with old horse shoes or silverware with some of my wood projects…

Steven Bloomfield says:

I like how jazzed you are getting learning new stuff. And I think having more mediums to work with is helping your creative side.

Derek Jarman says:

Good job on the metalworking👍👍

MrTegidTathal says:

A 1 2 3 block as a spacer for the crosscuts is better than a scrap because you can set the fence to an easy exact offset for specific length cuts. IE if you want a 5" piece, set it to 6" and put the 1 2 3 block up against the fence in the 1" orientation. They are also heavy enough they don't need clamps most of the time. They fit nicely on top of your fence too.

Willem Kossen says:

Nice art project. I love the plants this was inspired on as well. Grandma had them and i had many varieties at one point. Sansevieria is the name we use here. i think that's the correct taxonomical name as well. never knew them as snakeplant. In Dutch they are called vrouwetongen. That means tongues of women. you make of that what you like. 🙂

The Family Woodworker says:

A really great look with the Cherry, and especially with the natural imperfections in the wood. Very cool…
