  • Sad News!

    I will be off for a little while. My wife, Corinna, of 27 years passed away suddenly this morning in her sleep. The coroner couldn't find any cause. Hopes to give us some answers by tomorrow. Will be back on after I go make all the arrangements.

    That is one of the ultimate losses, brother, and I feel for you. I lost my first wife to cancer 10 years ago.

    Right now you've got to be in shock, and I hope friends and family are looking out for you.

    PM me if you ever have questions about how you're reacting.

    May God rest your wife.

    All the best,

                      I am very sorry for your loss. I am still very fortunate to have my wife for 42 years. Don't know what I would do without her.

                                Woodgrain is like a straw sucking in the pigment, but I think you did a good job on a complex piece. Lots of patience for this pattern.

                                Thanks Rolf,
                                I actually tried painting the inside of the cuts before removing the pattern and tape. I initially used packing tape because I was out of painters tape. When I sprayed the cuts, apparently the paint bled into the fibers of the wood. But I have to say I have been redeemed by my wife....

                                Nice project, I really like the design. You did use a tough piece of material, I would normally suggest cutting at least 3 layers of 1/8 BB because you will get requests of them. I am curious as to why you got some black bleeding into the grain? Is this mounted on a black backer ?

                                This is my latest project and I'm still up in the air about it. The wood was reclaimed from a table that someone had thrown away. It is 3/4 MDF with veneer on both sides. The project is 11 x 14 and is pretty heavy. The pattern was from "Grandpa" and I believe his real name is Paul. I used...
