  • more names and ornaments...results from today

    I just finished these today. The ornaments are cut from 1/4 inch utility panel and MDF. The names are yellow and white pine, about 2 1/2 inches high, done in my own hand writing. I have all sorts of fonts on my computer but I have about 40 names to cut for Christmas and it is much faster, and cheaper, to use a good ol' pencil. Besides, it is so relaxing to sit around in the evening listening to Southern Gospel music and take my time writing out all the names I want to do, then take them to the shop the next time I get a chance to do some cutting.
    Besides names I want to do a few puzzles. Has anyone used MDF for puzzles? I asked Carter but he wasn't familiar with it. If MDF isn't good for puzzles, I bought a 5X5 piece of 1/4 inch solid core baltic birch plywood from a local distributor. Just wondering about MDF because it is cheaper.
    Thanks for looking. All comments and suggestions welcome, as always.

            Bubba I have found that mdf breaks easily at the tabs for puzzles. Some folks say it is great so I guess give it a go and let us know what you find. I prefer plys or poplar for my puzzles.

              Rodney, I will admit I'm in that group. The younger people are too busy with kids and getting a good foothold in careers to have time for hobbies. I know I didn't even start scrolling til my daughter went away to college. I've loved it ever since!

              Thanks Linda. I have tried a wide (pun intended) verity of thicknesses. I cut a Mother's Day rose that was at least 1 1/2 inches thick. That's where I learned that I was doing too much pushing against the blade and not letting the blade and saw do the work. The thin strips between frets would cut through...

              Hi Rodney! Nicely cut. I love the black backing especially.
              Your explanation for the thin 1/4" wood makes total sense when it comes to framing. I did a detailed Iwo Jima on 1/4" as well as 1/8" thick, both framed. The feedback I got from a 60-90 year old group of guys was the...
