    Glad you all like it--it's certainly different from my usual stuff.

    Kim's advice about using the paint was very helpful. The only thing I did differently was to use tiny parchment cake decorating bags to get a finer dot than the container's tip allowed. Those little bags are made from parchment triangles and can be used without metal tips--you just cut a tiny bit of the point off.

    Kim said to finish things off with a coat of lacquer after everything's dried up well, so I'll do that in a day or so. I gave it a coat of lacquer before I began, and that didn't seem to keep the paint from adhering well.

    And Gloria, how about dressing up some of your bows with dotted borders or just polka dot ribbons? I used to pipe icing dots and borders on gumpaste loops and tails. If I get a chance, I'll give it a try, unless you beat me to it!

    Going dotty--thanks a lot, Kim!

    Needed a bed for my "furniture suite" and figured it was a good time to try out those fabric paints that I bought with a 50% off coupon at Michael's. I really meant to use them for a decorated cake box, but I haven't had a chance to get the thick maple I needed.

    So, here it is--the dotty decorated bed box!

    He puts biscuts between the long pieces, is that what you meant? He has stainless screws in the lips then puts the plugs on top of that. Scott, cutting one doesn’t take long. It’s the removing of the tiny drill hole, spraying each piece with distilled water, letting dry, sanding and sometimes flap...

    Like Bob said clamp a straight edge to the table and adjust it to compensate for the blade drift. There are some blades that have no or very little drift. Like the Olson PGT series it also seems to me that the Pegas MGT 3 or larger cut very straight....

    I now you do beautiful work but I have to say your attention to details on these baskets is impressive. soft smooth edges, no visible glue squeeze out. And of course the cutting boards are beautiful. I am guessing that Bruce cut a spline in the end of the board and then dowels. I have not seen that...
