  • wooden bases

    I'm looking for finished wood bases of various sizes and shapes that I can use when I don't have time to make my own. I know there's a place back EAST because I talked to a carver recently who mentioned it, but he couldn't remember the name or place. I haven't seen any advertised in Chip Chats or anywhere else.

    Any help? Sure would appreciate the info.
    Thanks

    Re: wooden bases

    Donna, two places I have seen bases are in my Little Shavers and MDI catalogs. MDI has the biggest selection, finished and unfinished and different shapes. I don't know if they have any shown on their website, the address is www.mdiwoodcarvers.com if you want to check it out or order their catalog if you don't get it.
    Rick at Little Shavers, address [email protected] would be a good person to check with too. I only see a couple round and oval bases in their catalog but he's good at helping you find what you're looking for. Let us know how you make out, I for one will be most interested, a few of the carvings I have drawn up for this year will require bases and not making my own would be a real time saver. Good luck!

        you might also look in any local craft store, most of them have sections of wood products which while not specifically meant as a base could easily be used for such. just a thought.

          Woody, Callynne, and Dave E,
          Thanks for the advice guys. I'll check them out over the weekend when I have more time.

          Making bases reminds me of a sign I saw once at a craft show. 'Sure you could make it yourself for less $, but WILL you.' Sometimes time is harder to come by to make bases than just giving in and buying some that are already cutout, sanded, and finished--ready to use!

          I'll let you know what I find out. If anyone else knows of other suppliers, let us know.

            New toys sometimes become tools we can use, and other times they simply are tools toward expanding our horizons and being there when an idea pops into our heads. Let us know what you try the Ortur on and how it does. I'm sincerely curious. Also....why did you choose Amazon vs the other vendors...

            It was a challenge that’s for sure. I didn’t start anything until I was all finished. It’s nice to have a clean area to work in! My biggest challenge was all those pieces of scrap wood that I just might need “someday.” They burned well in my son’s woodstove. And I did get through all the patterns....

            Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.

            I ordered and received the ORTUR Laser Master 2 from Amazon, the but haven't had a chance to even get it out of the box. Too much going
            on right now. I got the 20 watt version, which is supposed to be good for cutting, but I don't think I'll be doing much of that. There will be a learning curve...
