  • This Home believes

    Toni sent me a copy of the work "This Home Believes" and asked that I post it when I was finished.
    So to be true to my word here it is.
    I cut it in 1/2 inch Red Oak.
    So you all remember im just a beginnner.

    Thanks Dale, beginner huh? Script isn't the easiest to cut, and you did a wonderful job!

    I have that pattern on my "to do" list... have an order for 6 of them. Thanks for reminding me!

    Take care

      Dale you did a wonderful job. You deserve a real big "ataboy". As Toni said cutting letters is not easy. You have a lot to be proud of.

        Well done. It takes a steady, assured hand to cut letters that cleanly. Heck, I have enough trouble typing them, let alone cutting them !

          I think you can safely drop that " beginner " handle friend . That is smooth as moonbeams ....not very easy to do.
          Good job !

                    Thanks you all.
                    Still feel like a beginner though.

                    I really enjoyed cutting that out.

                    Ran out of plywood so went to hard wood till i make it back to the lumber yard.

                        Understandable for your baskets Betty, but in my experience 1/4” solid wood for puzzles tends to not hold up very well. Especially the small locks....

                        Should read planer Died yesterday. But Bruce got out his instruction book and google and got it apart. Needs new belt, plastic cover and pulley gear. Ordered from eBay and should have by Monday. Of course all work on dough boards stopped. $55 is much cheaper than a new planer. Oh well, on to the next...

                        My customers won’t buy anything cut from plywood. I’ve spoiled them. I use poplar for all my kid puzzles. With Bruce volunteering at the County Park antique sawmill, I have an endless supply of poplar. My current batch is green and white striped. I make cases for all my puzzles and back them with...

                        I have enough of that. I bought 3 sheets of 1/8 and 1/4 a few months back. Bruce was at the sawmill yesterday and the superintendent of the Park told them they were getting over 50 oak trees from various county parks. The trees have sort of bug that is killing them . They will be quarantining them in...
