  • Two Bevel Cut Frames

    Not sure if this is the right spot for these but I thought I'd share. Last month my daughter came to me upset because she could not find suitable picture frames to give as gifts at my grand-daughter's christening. I am fairly new to woodworking but told her I would try to make something more like she wanted for them. She and I sat at the computer and using CorelDraw (thanks to Steve Good's lessons) designed our own patterns for these frames. She was excited...I had wondered what I had gotten myself into given I had only 5 days to complete this mission... I used 3/4" Aspen and bevel cut the frame area and the words and made them little stands to sit on. My daughter and the recipients were thrilled. I surprised myself! Thanks for looking! Tammy

              This video was taken where Bruce volunteers at the sawmill. Bruce is the tall one at the back of the saw.

              Cute Pattern.

As previously said, just be sure to keep the paint off of the cut edges. If you want to seal the craft paint, a light spray coat...

              This is the puzzle, for some reason I usualy make my puzzels with thicker stock, sometimes 3/4 oak or pine or poplar. I have made puzzels in the past I just wanted to get some fresh ideas on blades and finish. I like the idea of applying shellac first that is if the paint sitll covers...

              No more waiting for weeks to start therapy. The sooner you use the replacement the better. Bruce was doing mild hand exercises the day after his surgery and bending slightly at the elbow. They expected him in pt for at least 6-9 months. He stopped in February and is doing home therapy, like lifting...
