  • Coaster Project

    Hi, I'm Helen and although I have been a member here for over a year I haven't yet posted anything! I finally completed a project which I feel is good enough to share with you - 12 sets of 2 drinks coasters that I made for my sister who was musical director for a local amateur production os the Sound of Music. She wanted a gift to give the members of her small orchestra to commemorate their involvement. I came up with the design, although if I had known how many hours 24 matching coasters would take to make I may have made the design simpler! The results can be seen on the Scroller Gallery - I would be interested in any comments fro all you experts!

    I have been scrolling for about 2 years now and make a mixture of children's wooden toys, coasters, keyrings, necklace racks, baskets, jigsaws, house signs and anything else that anyone in my village in Cornwall thinks of that they want to give to someone as a personalised unique present.

    At the moment it is purely a hobby, but as I now only work part time I am trying to reach a wider market than the village.

    Those turned out quite nice. I hope you don't wait another year to show more of your work. Here is a ink to your photos.

      I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

      If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

      The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

      I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
