  • Hummingbird

    I'm been humming along with this project. It the Hummingbird from Diana's book. It made from basswood. I broke off part of the beak while sanding I rushed it to the local vet but it was too late to save it but even with half a beak it does not look to bad. I thinking about making another one using some poplar with lots of green in the grain. Now dont get idea that I may become addicted to compound cutting I can stop any time I want, this is just not the time. Any and all comments are welcome.

      I think he's a beautiful bird inflight. I love hummingbirds. why not super glue the beak back on?
      Did you hear about the petco that was grooming a customer's dog and the groomer accidentally cut its ear off and they tried to superglue the ear back on...the owner had to take the dog to the vet where the vet said it looked like they tried to superglue it back on.,
      The owner was filing a lawsuit. My point is they can superglue the ear back on...you can glue the bird's beak back on.....long story, I know to make a point....but the bird looks good either way.

        Thanks DW and Catlyn for your nice comments. I didn't try and super glue the beak back on is because I have to idea were my mop sander flung it. I used a green highlighter to color the bird I think it looks kind of nice.

          My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

          None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

          What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
          The bags seem easier on the surface.
          But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

          Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

          As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...
