  • Wolves projects are always popular

    New wolf pattern, I plan to make several such patterns (silhuette of animal with scene inside). I made two variants: silhuette and framed, as an example added colored variant. Which one do you like more? And one more question: If you need black color how do you get it? Paint, stain or something else?

    Very nicely designed (as always for you).
    The top two are more eye catching due to the color contrasts.
    When I'm using baltic birch or similar woods for the layered projects like this, if I do black, I'll prefer using diluted acrylic black paint to wash/stain the wood black. 2nd choice would be ebony stain, but takes far longer to adequately dry for glue ups.

      I typically let my stained pieces dry 24 hours before glue up. Before I glue I wipe gently with a dry paper towel to remove any excess.

        Nice work. I truly admire all the projects that you share and I truly envy the fact that you finish what you start. What is your secret?

        Thanks, Kim. I'll show that to my husband but since he has 2 surgeries coming up I doubt that will be on his to do list. The place we buy wood from air dries the wood for a year, than finishes with kiln drying....

        will8989, We made a drying kiln out of a plan we saw on youtube. We took a 6-Tier Commercial Grade Heavy Duty Steel Wire Shelving Unit that we got at lowes, wrapped it in 1 inch foam insulation board and put two heat bulbs in the bottom, we have holes at the top and bottom to let the moisture out. We...
