  • The County Fair

    My wife and I went out to the fair today. My main goal was to find the guy with the Hawk scroll saw so I could try it out. I guess he didn't make it this year because I looked high and low and couldn't find him. If figures just when I had the wife convinced that I need a new saw...

    I did find a group from a local wood turning club, they had a couple laths set up and they were turning bowls. There was also a couple old timers from a craving club. I think I'll check them out because they meet every Wednesday at the local park.

    I was also looking to see what kind of wood projects that I could enter in next years fair. I saw one intarsia rose, lots of bird houses and a couple really nice clocks....

    I also checked out the one and only doll house, pretty lame for 1st place..
    Every time I see the doll houses I think back to when they wouldn't let me in the door with my cabin

    It was a fun day..

    Cute Pattern.
    I have good success treating the wood with spry shellac before cutting. There will not be a problem painting the pieces with craft paint over the shellac. As previously said, just be sure to keep the paint off of the cut edges. If you want to seal the craft paint, a light spray coat...

    This is the puzzle, for some reason I usualy make my puzzels with thicker stock, sometimes 3/4 oak or pine or poplar. I have made puzzels in the past I just wanted to get some fresh ideas on blades and finish. I like the idea of applying shellac first that is if the paint sitll covers...

    No more waiting for weeks to start therapy. The sooner you use the replacement the better. Bruce was doing mild hand exercises the day after his surgery and bending slightly at the elbow. They expected him in pt for at least 6-9 months. He stopped in February and is doing home therapy, like lifting...
