  • Gotta LOVE New Neighbors (GLOAT)

    It was a beautiful sunny evening so I was out scrolling in the driveway. Some new neighbors from down the street were out walking their dog and came up to say" Hi" and see what I was doing. They were impressed with the sign I was cutting and asked to see some other stuff. We walked in the garage, they looked, they actually ooo -ed and awwww-ed (honest!). How much for this.........how much for that.........when can this be done..............that would look great in our entryway........ what is that tool (a lathe)......... what do you make with it.......THAT pen is made out of MOOSE antler????

    To end a pleasant visit, they left happy and I was left with $170 in sales/orders to finish up. (They want a moose antler pen, bias cut mesquite slimline pen, redheart Panache pen, Lily coat rack out of ash and cherry, and one of my daffodil patterns cut in Prima Vera)

    Like I said, a beautiful evening.

    Oh, I invited them to stop in ANYTIME they saw me sawing. Even said they could bring a friend or two.

          Well done! maybe the moral of the story is that we should all consider moving our scrollsaws out into the driveway or better still park theem at the front gate. Lol. We may all make better friends withthe neighbours, new and old.
          Cheers. Teresa .

                I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

                If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

                The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

                I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
