  • Autumn Basket

    This is the Autumn Basket designed by Sue Mey in the Fall 2010, Issue 40 of the magazine. I made for my wife and she wanted it to use all during Fall so she wanted just leafs and pumpkins. I stack cut 3 of each using 1/4 inch BBP and a Flying Dutchman #3 Polar blade. I finished it with Minwax Colonial Maple and sprayed on Triple Thick lacquer. This was a fast and fun project.

        I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me!

          Very nice Bill!! OK...what's triple thick lacquer? Is it how you applied it, or a special type of lacquer?

            Kim-

            Triple thick is a spary on product by Krylon, you can buy it at Wal-Mart. Go here to check it out. It's really good stuff.

                Thanx Bill! I guess I need to wear my cheaters more often as I never noticed the 'triple thick' before - lol! I used to use it years ago...I think the lack of availability made me switch...perhaps I need to check and see if they are stocking it more these days.

                Thanx again!

                    Farmers market "survey"
                    by Linda In Phoenix
                    Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
                    I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
                    For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

                    The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

                    Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...

                    Sawstop instructions are some of the best I've ever worked with. Each part comes labeled with a letter to match instructions, hardware in color coded and labeled to match labels and colors in instructions. Full poster size instructions with pics in addition to manual instructions. Could only find one...

                    So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.
                    I like the fact...

                    Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....
