  • Two Projects

    Here are some recent ones, comments and constructive critisism welcomed. First is the Jonah and the Whale, once I corrected for the directions given, and the other is a lighthouse.

    Draken, very nicely done! I know Carl gets a kick as would any of us seeing a project/pattern of our own being cut by someone else. Curious as to the lighthouse, will you be mounting it in a frame with a black ot colored background, or will it hang where you have it in the picture? Reason I ask, the pattern on the wall behind the lighthouse makes for an interesting backdrop.
    Keep them coming!

      Two thumbs up on both counts.
      Yes I get a kick, but that is usually from my wife telling me not to get to swell headed

      Awesome job

            I just cut the whale the other night. You did a nice job on the light house.
            nice straight cuts.

                Thanks for the kind words everyone. I must admit I forgot the whale's mouth, but if anyone noticed, they didn't mention it. As for the background of the lighthouse, not sure yet what to do with it. The background on it is actually one of my wife's jackets that I use as a backdrop for my photos. I don't think she'd appreciate it being cut up... I do have a neighbor that may be interested in the lighthouse, so may see what they would like for a background, if any. As for price, I was thinking about $10 for it as is (stained but no other finish). Does that sound reasonable or should I put a finish on it first? It is 3/8" BB ply.

                Thanks all!

                    I have made a number of those Harvey puzzles. They are a lot of fun. You really need to be patient and let the blade cut. Even the slightest pressure can ruin your puzzle piece fit. My go to is a Pegas #3 MGT....

                    Congrats on your pending retirement and gaining a new daughter. I have been retired close to 6 years now and I have no idea where the time went. Yes retirement will mean some adjustment but I can tell you it is the best job I have ever had. By the way. If you think retirement means unlimited shop...

                    Thanks to all for the kind comments.

                    Norma and I are still growing into our 'new' home but are really happy that we got this work done and everyone who has seen the transformation have been wowed.

                    From my side I'm really pleased with how my kitchen extension idea worked out....
