  • Getting back to normal

    Hello all, sorry I haven't been around much lately but things have been quite hectic for us since my son in law had a stroke last month. We have been having the children sleep over 3 or 4 times a week so that Lisa could look after Tony and have a bit of the pressure taken off her. The good news is Tony is making great progress, his speech is almost back to normal, just a slight slur from time to time and he is managing to get out for short walks. Lisa brings him round to visit as he is getting pretty bored with staying in. He isn't allowed to drive yet so he's getting pretty grumpy at times, but we see that as a good sign. We are looking forward to having all the kids and grandkids round for Christmas dinner and my brother who lives on his own. There will be 12 of us in all so maybe I may be able to dodge the washing up - Lol.

      Hi Mick - great news mate! It certainly sounds like you are all on the home straight at last and will be able to enjoy a great family Christmas.

      As for missing out on washing those dishes. Don't disappoint your forum chums or Wendy. I think you'd look great in a Santa cap and white locks and beard wearing a nice festive apron and a pair of bright yellow latex kitchen gloves!!!

        Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

        Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

        My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
        I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
        Was it a good idea.....?...

        Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

        The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...

        I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...
