Me making sawdust and cutting out swords.
Attempting to cut out Curtana.
This is the first video I have ever posted to Facebook, but, here it is! This is me routing a new template for the ice brand sword I just finished up. I don't like using MDF as the finished template because every time I remove the double sided tape it takes a little bit of the wood off, so 1/2" poplar should work just fine. The power of the router is creepy-cool. I love working with it, but if you don't put the wood into the bit correctly it can sometimes kick or pop. You might notice me jumping a couple of times as I moved the board into the bit, only to have it kick a little. It's not as bad with a large piece of wood, as you can maintain control over it, but a smaller piece of wood can easily be pulled from your hands and sent across the room. Unfortunately, since your hands are on the wood as it moves forward...well... Sorry about my son sticking his fingers into the view. It's my first video! Give me a break!
