  • Packing Bowls for Shipment

    I just sent out some baskets and bowls as Christma presents. When I pack them I put them is a plastic bag. That's right a regular old whilte plasic gargae car liner. The plastic is a natural lubricant that won't wear the finish. Styrofoam and packing can rub the finsh right off a piece during a cross country mailing. I will even place a piece in a plastic bag before gift wrapping it, if it will have a long lourney.

    I have done the same thing over the years Dave. Then I go one step further by wrapping the piece in thick bubble wrap and taping it tight before placing it in the box with styrofoam. Have not had one damaged yet.

          I've had very good luck using the oven. The wood does soften, but with oak, that usually isn't a problem. It also darkens all the way through.

          He is a flash from the past where I show some puzzle boxes made with oven darkened oak.

          Thanks for the post. I have tried spirals in the past and had lots of issues. I need to set down one day and keep cutting with them until I get the hang of it. Part of my problem may have been covered by your number 7. Tried pine thinking it would be easy to cut but now realize the grain may have...

          I agree, a beautiful piece and wonderful cutting. Years ago, my father had Alzheimer. The last six months we had him in the VA center in St. Cloud MN. His wood work shop is still in MN. I could not take it down to TN....

          They were a real challenge on my Old Delta SS350. cutting straight in and out was easy, trying to cut details going sideways was the problem because of the...

          The best tip I have with spirals is to cut straight lines backwards. instead of pushing the work piece into the blade, pull it toward you. Seems to allow for better control on straight lines (most other lines too)
