    Re: TAGUA NUTS

    Ben,
    The kind of tool depends on what you are going to make. Power works but be sure to wear a mask. They are hard little boogers to carve; you can saw them, too.

    I do remember that they carve better if you soak them in water for a couple of days to soften them a bit. It's been several years since I tried them, but the finished carving looks like ivory. A few years back, Chip Chats had an article about carving Tagua nuts, but I don't remember what year or issue. Perhaps someone with a better memory will help.

      $3 sounds about right.

          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.
