  • Project ideas?

    This morning, as most Saturday mornings the LOML and I did the tour of garage sales. More than buying this is a way to explore the area, enjoy time together and see nice homes and gardens.

    I find that I like homes that have tapered (craftsman?) columns.

    I was thinking how to use that thought in some woodworking project. No, I don't want to add columns to our house and was thinking of something smaller (box, shelf, who knows)

    Anything come to mind?

    One thought now would be tapered candlesticks.

    Would appreciate some project suggestions.

      My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

      None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

      What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
      The bags seem easier on the surface.
      But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

      Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

      As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...
