  • Irish Valentines card

    I have been asked to create a wooden valentines card. I had made one for Jaun last year and decided I would try and advertise to make them. I had a woman on FB ask me to create what I would call a valentines card Irish style. Let me know what ya's think. This is what it would look like on wood including the colors behind the wood. The little Irish phrase on the bottom right corner will be wood burned with golden flecks added. The dimensions are 8 1/2 inches tall and 5 1/2 inches wide.

      Hi Cherie - Nice! I like the idea of a wooden card

      Ref the second design. I see you have superimposed the design on a piece of pine board. Whilst I have no experience cutting this type of fretwork on pine I wonder if is too delicate a pattern for pine and if you might run a big risk of pieces dropping out as you are cutting.

      Also nit picking on the wording - I had to read the phrase three times to understand the last line because it seemed you could interpret it two ways. I'd change the line to say 'and less than tomorrow'.

      Please post in the Fretwork section whatever you decide to go with. I think its a very good idea which other members may wish to follow.

          LOL Cherie - glad it wasn't just me who read it wrong. Still, if the customer doesn't see a problem then there's no problem and after all, they do say that true love is blind !

                I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

                Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

                He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver. I made a pot of chili on Sunday and got 6 meals out of it! As for payback, I’m getting a new shed in the spring! I had to do my flap...

                We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
