  • Rest In Peace Diana Thompson

    I just saw a post on Facebook from Diana’s husband, Robert. The queen of compound cutting is now making sawdust in heaven. Prayers for Robert and the rest of the family.

    Maybe we should all post a picture of one of her projects we have made as a way to honor her memory.

      Oh, so sad. I made many of her patterns, especially the Miniature Birdhouse Ornaments. Here is her Dogwood Box

          I did a few birds years ago and Denny got me going on them again.
          I will miss her patterns, but I have her Christmas ornament book to start on.
          I posted these a couple of months ago, but here they are again as a tribute to a great artist.

                  I made 150 of those angels during the height of COVID. My woodworking group made various small crosses and angels which were given out to nurses in area hospitals.

                    Diana was truly a fine pattern maker. Compound scrolling is one of my favorite things to cut. I give lessons on compound cutting and I always start with Diana's mini birdhouse. People are amazed when the little house or bird pops out.

                    My favorite memory is cutting child awareness angels. The local cancer support center asked if I had an ornament to make for child cancer awareness month. I used Diana's angel and with the help of some club members make over 150 for each family in our area. I have since done many painted pink for breast cancer.

                    We will miss her, but her patterns live on.

                      So sad to hear this. I loved making the bird houses.

                        Hi Jim.

                        The paints I used are mainly aerosol spray.

                        The green is Rus-oleum Painters touch, craft enamel.

                        The red is a stores brand own name, just called Wilko's

                        Don't know if you will get either of these in Mexico, but I'm

                        sure you...

                        Great work and patience needed to pull off these smaller toys. You did a fantastic job! I really like them.

                        I'm curious to know what type of paints you use if you don't mind sharing the brand name.

                        Nice precise work Alex, as always from you.

                        I also find Celtic these designs fascinating due to their intricacy and geometrical symmetry but I doubt I have your patience to cut them!

                        Well done!

                        Bstark, take a look at out simple table setup that I have posted in Bettys posting. This fair is an annual fund raiser for our churches women's group. So I pay for two 8 ft tables (so I don't need to bring any) A couple of nice table clothes and I put shutters on each end and made special shelves...
