  • At sea??

    Well, I was supposed to go back to sea last week, but apparently there is something wrong with the ship. Darn. Now I will go this week sometime, but only for a week or two.

    Anyway, Since I was home, I cut out a POW/MIA pattern I was working on. I have one in a book, but decided to make my own pattern, and that is what I did and it looks great.

    Now I am working on another military theme. If any of you happen to have the Fox Chappel Book Scroll Saw Military Designs by Mike and Vicky Lewis, you can get a grasp on what I am trying to do. I took the four basic emblems, Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps, (with a little modification in photoshop) and am going to put them on one project. I can't decided if I want all four in a row, or in some kind of pattern, or with some kind of slogan. Really driving me nuts. Any suggestions?

    Try one in each corner with perhaps a flag or saying such as "To Honor Those Who Serve" in the center.

        I've hesitated to mention this design because it's British. Perhaps you could adapt it?

          I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. 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.
