I'm a Scaredy Cat! FINISHED

WHOA Nelly Here it comes.....

And I am SCARED!
My hearts actually doin a little pitter patter starting.

I had to cut the board, that was a tense few minutes.
The board Edge was Chewed up from even the finest blade I had for a Jig Saw.
But with a little patience and a Sharp Plane, I was able to put a Factory fresh edge back on the board.

This ain't NO Mousetrap!!! - 24' x 45"



There's a little Scuffage/Shine on the bottom but that'll be all gone when this is done.

Started.

Re: I'm a Scaredy Cat! W.I.P.

Thats my theory too! Start in the middle! I can't wait to see how you do this. I would like to see how you are going to reach and turn and control your scratches! I imagine this is going to be a back breaker! Lots of pics TC PLEASE!!

Re: I'm a Scaredy Cat! W.I.P.

I can see that this is going to be a real back breaker,maybe you can prop it up on a drafting board.
