  • Gluing the halos on the angel ornaments

    G'morning, folks. I just received a PM asking how I manage to glue the halos onto the heads of the angel ornaments, and since I ran into the same difficulty, I decided to post the question here for all you angel makers to post your answers. My solution was to make a smaller hole in the halo. I use a 3/8 bit to drill the hole instead of cutting it on the saw. Yeah, it's hard to get the hole cut in the middle exactly (I redrew the halo, marked the centre and then made a zillion copies), but who says halos have to be perfectly dimensioned? I prefer that they stay firmly adhered! I've had the best luck using Aileen's clear gel tacky glue.

    How about the rest of you? Any similar difficulties and solutions?

    Make the angels out of wormy wood and they will by holy. Maybe they'll grow their own halos. It's worth a try!

        I appreciate the input from everyone but, I need clarify to my work? space. I originally stated my area measures 6'X10' and, it does. But, I only have about 5'X5' of available space and, that's without taking myself into consideration.

        I'll add in some food for thought too. I was unsure if I would enjoy this hobby (addiction) so I started with the Porter Cable from Lowes. I think it is a good entry level saw, 5 months later I found an Excaliber on Craigs List and have been happy ever since.

        Food for thought, When I first started scrolling my thinking was "all I want to do is this and I will never do that as it doesn't interest me". I didn't know I would be working with SSWWC or get sucked into creating Intarsia or doing large intricate fretwork, like Charles Hand designs....

        Thank you all for giving me a little more to consider. I thought I had covered everything in my mind until others chimed in!
        At least at this point in life, I'm not under a time constraint.
