  • Question for Judy Peterson

    Hi,

    When using aspen for its whiteness, do you use oil to finish it? If so, is there any way to keep the whiteness? Thanks.

    Are there any more pattern books in the works ? I'm finally starting to cut puzzles from your last book and really like the cats and dog patterns that are in there.

      Dear Carole -

      We just signed up for the forum this very day, and so just found your question (sorry for the long delay, and we hope you get our answer). This is Dave Peterson doing the typing for Judy.

      Judy finishes her puzzles (including those in Aspen) with a clear Danish oil. There really is no way to keep the whiteness short of bleaching the puzzle (or whatever you're cutting). Judy says there are wood bleaches, but they're very strong and at least hazardous to use. If you decide to try it, be careful.

      We'll watch the forum now that we know about it, and will try to reply in under 17 months hereafter!

      Dave & Judy Peterson

        Hi!

        We just checked out and joined the forum this very day (sorry for the long delay in the response).

        We do have two (1 1/2?) more pattern books in the works. We expect both to be published next spring (e.g., spring of 2009). One of them will have four more dogs and more cat in it.

        We'll watch the forum at least periodically now, and try to get responses out in less than 3 years!

        Dave Peterson (for Judy, too)

          Talked to him yesterday after he was coherent. Very fortunately, it was dc current. He said ac current and would have ended differently. And it wasn’t a house. It was a converter box in a marina located on a deck cut into a 20’ high steep bank. They had to climb a ladder to get to it. And they were...

          Wow!!!! That is beautiful. Super job of sawing. If I worked it out correctly it took you less than a minute for each opening especially when I look at the amount of time it would take to saw the outline of the bear. Garry

          Thanks guys, I have a lot of HDU left over from my sign business in various thicknesses.
          HDU doesn't "fuse" or repair itself under heat or friction. Only acrylics and some PVC materials do that. Depending on what part of the world you are in, you would have to google HDU Distributors...
