When you say "slotting blade", do you mean one of those uber-thin kerf ones as used by luthiers, or something different?

Cheers,

Mitch

It's a very thin blade for a table saw, usually 1mm thick with flat teeth.

cheers

Right, I'm with you. I'll have to see if my common or garden variety combination performance blade can get somewhere near the effect.

Now that you've said that, I feel dense asking more about it, but... I don't quite understand.

Do you cut the mat into strips to lay it down, or you use the thin blade just to chop out some of the matting in little "channels", to mark the rows? Meaning, in your case, you carved out 3mm gaps in the mat?

I thought I had understood it. But now I'm not so sure... :?

I was going with the plough lanes through the matting without going to full depth approach, using the mitre gauge on the saw. I wasn't looking forward to the mess!

Wow! Very impressive! While the church is spectacular, I do also quite like your fields and fences. I'm in the mood for terraforming! :)

Regarding the laser cut acrylic... What type of laser cutter are you using? Sorry if that was replied to before. Couldn't find anything when I scanned the thread.

The latter H8. The mat was cut into the rectangular shape, then turned upside down and ran over the saw.

Hope this helps :)
