  • Reducing stress

    The English language is certainly a conundrum.
    When ever I am fretting I get really stressed out, I use fretwork to reduce the stress
    There is nothing quite as relaxing as fretting.
    Sure I could take a long country stroll, winding around a path, but there is something satisfying about taking a complicated intricate piece and fretting away the hours.

    So why isn't fretting fretful?
    I have scrolled the internet for hours and never found the answer.

    Why is it even called fretwork?

    Why do some stringed instruments have frets and others don't?
    Well you shouldn't sweat when you fret
    It is relaxing I bet
    If it isn't yet
    Then scrolling isn't your pet

Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

      My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

      None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

      What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
      The bags seem easier on the surface.
      But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

      Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.
