  • Finally got my lock and chain done!!!

    Well I have certainly been busy the last couple of weeks!! Not only did I get my ginger jar done but I finally finished my lock and chain!! It's made from cherry (I think it was so long ago I can't remember!!) and maple with a shellac finish. Unfortunately the chain was made from poplar so it looks pretty darn green!!! I was not happy with that. The lock was fun the chain was a challenge!!!


    I will probably make a new chain from some butternut. This will be one of my entries for the fair this year. Thanks for looking!!

              They look great! I like the green chain it won't stay that color. The green goes brown over time. I guess you got the key issues sorted out.

                      Dan, your questions are a little tough to answer without knowing a little more about this puzzle you're cutting. That said, here are my thoughts:
                      • First of all, it would be helpful to know the overall size of this puzzle and how many pieces you're thinking of cutting it into. 1/2" BB is pretty

                      Hey Denny---I shot you an email with a few questions. I might just have to dip my toe into the world of Pegas blades vs FD. At least to try! Open minded explorations. Thank you ! Linda

                      Be careful---soon she will be able to outrun you! Remember when fridges lasted for decades?! Glad she's doing well.
