  • Got Wood?

    Someone said that they like pictures of projects so here is my 3rd project that I have finished. I wish I had started this hobby years ago. But a thing called work would have gotten in the way. The pattern was in the March 2010 CWC mag. The pattern is by Bob Valle. I made it out of oak with a stained backer board. Any and all pointers would be helpfull. Thanks

    I like how it turned out and the grain of the wood really adds to the rustic look. My only suggestion is to practice using a smaller entry hole and hiding your entry holes for your veining...

        I see what you mean about the entry holes. The pattern showed a "tear drop" hole going down to a veining line. This shows up on the picture as a bigger hole than what looks like you would need. Not being thin skined but just telling why the holes are the size they are. I realy do like help to make things better!

          I think the holes look fine. Some patterns are made this way to camoflage entry holes, making them part of the cutting pattern. Sometimes I think even tiny entry holes look like............entry holes...........and nothing hides them. These holes really don't look that bad. Maybe part of the wood pattern.

                    I like that track man. Actually quite a few things could be done with that. Thank you for showing that to us.

                      Looks good. What are you going to do with it. Hang it in your shop, on the wall inside, a gift or for sale?
