  • 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.

              SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

              Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

              Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...
