Hey Doug, what a great idea! Why didn’t I think of that?
I have since made a couple of t-rests and don’t mind them being soft, infact I am quite used to them now so I don’t seem to have that problem. It seems the more experience I get under my belt the more I use the machinery, the better I get at using the machinery. I remeber back when I started I was almost too frightened to turn it on and tried doing everything by hand. When you are trying to make a living from this you soon learn that certain machines can speed things up quite a bit yet there are still certain jobs better done by hand.
