Looking good Alan.

Funny how it all works out in the end, I remember when you were having the dilemma about leaving work and starting up, must be 4 - 5 years ago now, you always seem busy and more importantly happy in your work. Keep up the good work.

Re: Shakes

I bought £2000+ of 4" oak last year from Brooks, same senario, full of shakes when planed and cut. Had a big bust up with them over trying to get a refund.
Got it eventually but this seems to be a big problem with thick kiln dried oak, Basically dried too quickly seems to be the common opinion.

Very nice, however I'm a little surprised you decided to show the butt joint at the bottom of the circle, rather than hide it at the top. Especially as it's an exhibition piece, a butt joint is a bit poor form on such a piece. I'm assuming you probably did 2 x semi circles and do have a joint at the...

Re: 150mm ducting to saw guard

150mm to the crown guard is too big, fine for below but 100mm would be plenty for the top.
To get good flow at distances the ducting should reduce the further away it is to keep the air speed the same.
