This evening have cut holes in the walls with a circular saw.

Then milled them to a rectangular shape,
with a cutter intended for steel cutting held in my large trusty drill press.

Looks really awful but will be covered then anyway.

" This evening have cut holes in the walls with a circular saw "


Hi Gerold  :wave:


I may have just answered my question  ???  whilst Posting !  L:


To me, a 'circular-saw' is a machine with a large eg. 8" 'circular' blade ...

... I was thinking, how on earth ... ?


But I guess you used what I know as a 'hole-saw' ...  ???

... like maybe a 1/2" dia. cutter, with a 1/4" drill-bit in the middle, on a mandrel ?  L:





The woodwork ^^ is lookin' ACE !  :thumb:


:java::moose: :dt:


Si.

Si,

Yes, a hole saw.

To be honest, I don't even know exactly how this thing is named in German...  Lochsäge? 

Unfortunately, the downsized wooden model has been abandoned again....
When placed at the layout, it looked very wrong and out of proportion....  

Will start again with a blank sheet.
