    Agreed - Ash.

    Not just you - I did exactly the same. Fusion 360 is no where near as intuitive as SketchUp.

    Bandsaw Table Losing Parallel

    The 'normal' use of the [Z] axis in this context is 'Up and Down', [X] is 'left to right' and [Y] is 'Front to Back'

    The only way that you could lose work in that way was if you had a power out at the precise time that an auto-save (or manual save) was part way through it's process which would be damned unlucky. The first thing that auto-save does is rename the oldest existing backups, adding _1, then writes...

    It doesn't make any program develop a [Delete files on HDD] routine! I don't allow Windows updates unless a new program demands that I have a specific one. This is more difficult with Win 10 but it is sometimes possible to 'undo' an update.

    That makes no sense. For any program to 'get more buggy' would mean that it is self modifying and that simply doesn't happen. If it works then 'it works' If you have changed to Windows 10 and cannot turn off updates then there is a slim possibility that a Windows .dll file may not perform in...

    Sketchup Shop

    That's not my experience. I still use the totally free V2014 on a daily basis - not as a commercial enterprise though - and it does everything I ask of it but I've used previous versions since at least 2008 probably before. My biggest project is a very detailed drawing of my property...

    Stuff for craft fair? Ideas wanted!

    See post #31 I've only ever made 'End grain' boards and the few 'professional' boards that I've had given me - including one specifically designed for use with a Mezzaluna - have also been end-grain. The reason is quite obvious (to me).

    Stuff for craft fair? Ideas wanted!

    I certainly don't 'butcher' a pig - or even half - but I do dice some beef/pork/lamb and trim the fat off bacon etc. but my (live in) grandson uses a cleaver for virtually everything he cuts up. We use two chopping boards daily and occasionally a 'dished' version - which is also end-grain - with...

    Stuff for craft fair? Ideas wanted!

    From the appearance it seems that you don't use it as a 'chopping' board. :) The point really is that pressing a knife - or any sharp implement - through food into 'end grain' allows the wood fibers to recover whereas if you do the same to 'face grain' you will sever the fibers - assuming that...

    Cutting boards should ALWAYS be end-grain !

    Joke thread

    That can't work since there is no 'standard' depth. :)

    Lots of hot air

    I believe that you have that the wrong way round. Last week I heard a very believable answer to the question " why do men have nipples?" -- it seems that all Zygotes are female and by the time the Y chromosome takes control the nipples have already been created. :oops:

    Cheapest material for semi-disposable cutting boards?

    The OP stated " ...and may well be thrown out once the cheese is consumed. " That alone should indicate that the cost of the board should be 'sensible' compared to the cost of the cheese and I doubt that you could get £30 worth of cheese on a 250 x 400 board (unless it is Pule Donkey cheese !)...

    Cheapest material for semi-disposable cutting boards?

    At those sort of prices (£30 for a 300 x 400 x 3) it can hardly be considered 'disposable' surely ?
