  • Wooden Sea Shell

    This is my first shell. The concept and general instructions came out of the latest SSW&C Magazine Summer 2012 issue 47. I used appleply from Lowes for the shell and black walnut for the ring base. The shell was finished with beeswax paste wax.

      Looking good DW, looks like you used all of the segments, I had to discard 3 of mine because of poor fit......must of done something wrong. I like your little stand too. Monkey see monkey do, now I need to make one for mine.

          D, That looks great in ply. Gotta do some of those.

          I haven't got my issue yet!! Would it be against the rules to post the directions.
          Or at least the segment angles. Trying to save some trial and error.
          I've got some 11 ply luan to try one.

            That looks really good. You can get some really neat effects by changing the orientation of the plywood layers.

              The angle on the segments on that one is 19 degrees. If you increase the angle , say to 25 degrees you will get a tighter curl. I am making a nightlight with the shell I am making now and I used 25 Degrees for those segments.

                For a tighter curve use smaller angles. Larger angles will cause the shape to get larger faster making the opening bigger.

                      Leading up to my retirement I too worried about who would replace me. Truth be told I was more worried than my management. It took a couple months after my retirement for the feelings to go away. Now I only miss the people and not the job.

                      is doing great in therapy. His range of motion is about 3 weeks ahead of where they expected him to be. He has zero strength in his hand or arm. He tried to grate some cheese, and he couldn’t hold the grater. The doctor had to do repair stitching on the muscle and that will take the longest to heal....

                      When we started out, it was 45 deg and rain. When we got there it was 44 deg and rain. By the time we left it stopped raining but was 42 deg. and windy. Luckily we are under cover but that doesn’t stop the wind. I sold 4 baskets, Sealife puzzle and a few other things. I moved the coffee grinders...

                      I thought I read you use shrink wrapped bags for your puzzles. Where do you get them from?...
