First cut… first failure

Ran my first cut. Tried a set of coaster on some scrap wood. Learned the value/need for tabs. Somehow it jumped from #2 to #6 and it got stuck and needed a quick shutdown :grimacing:.
Also learned that thin wood likes to split :man_shrugging:t2:

How bad was your first cut?

I have made some beautiful fire wood, broken more than my share of bits.

I’m a redeemer! 2 sets of coasters made now. Not perfect but it’s good example to learn with. I’ll probably run a few more different designs just to get a feel and try different complexities. But I’m happy with the progress. Also happy that with my dust control been keeping up.
