  • Compound cut bird homes

    I finally got on the band wagon yesterday and cut a bunch of compound cut bird houses. They are fun to cut it's true. The prep time got to me. As I did not have anything already sized at 1 1/4" I had to either do glue ups or take the boards to the planner. I ended up making 15 of them and found the cutting was very fast. I made a hand held holder that worked good, but perhaps the clamps would work better. I skipped the step of taping after the first cut and did have to hold a few pieces that wanted to come apart. I think I would like to increase the size of the ornaments, but of course would have to use light weight wood so they are not to heavy. I think I will dip the finished product before adding a hanger.

            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.
