handy for making bird houses. It cuts curves too which was one of the reasons we/I wanted one for. I used it to cute the apron and valance on the corner shelf unit I made out of an old door. I'm on the laptop so I don't have a photo to share of it right now, but will later.
Here's a video I found to show you just what they can do.
After reading your blog and seeing that you have an entire board dedicated to patriotic decor I figured you'd want to know that the union should always be in the upper left unless on a soldiers uniform where they wear it on their upper right sleeve. It's considered a place of honor. The union is then allowed to be on the upper right because it's "facing forward" or as it would be flying in the wind. I found this out when I was shocked to see the flag placement on my son's uniform before he was deployed to the Middle East. He filled me in on the reasoning.
