  • 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.

      Thanks, Linda. I'm about done with ornaments for this year. Time to move on.

            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.

              It was a challenge that’s for sure. I didn’t start anything until I was all finished. It’s nice to have a clean area to work in! My biggest challenge was all those pieces of scrap wood that I just might need “someday.” They burned well in my son’s woodstove. And I did get through all the patterns....

              Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.

              I ordered and received the ORTUR Laser Master 2 from Amazon, the but haven't had a chance to even get it out of the box. Too much going
              on right now. I got the 20 watt version, which is supposed to be good for cutting, but I don't think I'll be doing much of that. There will be a learning curve...

              Rick---if you are looking for a fretwork piece perhaps you could take 2 patterns and merge them into 1....
