  • Different way to shape ginger jar!!

    Good afternoon friends and Happy Easter!! I'm getting a chance to work in the shop today. Working on the ginger jar I plan on entering at the fair. I've gotten down to the the shaping part which is not my favorite after my last fiasco. I practically destroyed the lip and top of it!! Thank goodness Carole helped my straighten that one out. I got to the place where I was to glue the lip on, then the center ring, then shape. I thought it would be so much easier for me shape without the lip in the way, so I set it on, put the lid on and traced around it. I then proceeded to shape the top of it. I didn't shape the other next ring down as I thought it would be best to work on that when it was all glued up like the directions. But it was much easier to shape the top of it!!

    I'm anxious for Carole to see this and get her opinion on it!!! Oh and as always I had my helper in the shop too!!!

    Looks good, Cathy, and definitely an improvement in sequence! I see that you also took the lid into consideration when you traced your outlines.

    Can't wait to see the finished project. Your sanding looks terrific, and with your little furry helper to cheer you on, you can't lose.

    Happy Easter!

      Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

      Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.

      I just did a quick job on my table. Charles Hand has noticed that the adhesive on the new rolls of Contact brand shelf paper leaves a residue. He has changed to The duck brand. I just bought a roll and covered my table with it. It is a tough slick surface. It will be interesting to see how it holds...

      Yes, they can be used for hair. If they are made a little larger than the original, the shawl pins will work great in the hair!...
