  • Some kittens

    I feel I have made more progress since my last post, most certainly with materials. The internet is such a blessing when there are certain things we need and with some determination and some good fortune I have found exactly what I need to improve my portrait work. I have the finishes just right now and yesterday I managed to get some frames with a deep enough recess on the back so I can keep the glass in as well as the 3/16th birch ply and the 3/16th MDF backing board.

    Cutting the kittens was very time consuming but I cheated a little, I stack cut 3 of them together and because it was a little fragile I used 2inch blue tape to hold the stack together and cover the front and then glued the pattern on. I enlarged the pattern so it would fit just nice into the 8 x 10 frame. I used ultra reverse number three blades on the kittens and must have used six at least.

      Your finishing and the frames are very attractive.

        Very nice, good finish and I like the dog pic. Have been experimenting with a portrait of my own two dogs, made a start on the pattern for the dog, just need to do one for the *****.

          My many years on this earth has taught me that the only 5 minutes job is writing a check to have someone else do the work. I also learned that Murphy was an optimist. You took on an ambitious project and stuff will happen. It will be great when you are done. The good news is you are retired so no...

This time around the local government did a much better job of organizing where and when to get the shots and opened up 5 smaller vaccination centers around the city instead of the previous one large one for the first...

          The difference between 30° and 45° is amazing on my EX-21. The vibration at 45 is much greater. While having the flat table is great, I have to tilt the saw to the left to keep the upper clamp knob from beating my fingers to a pulp. I cut a lot of bowls-from-boards so I'm used to it. I probably wouldn't...

          Great idea and a nice job of puzzle making. There is one more option that I use to make puzzle. That is cutting along the shapes in the picture....

          Great job on a difficult pattern. When I want to add color to BB I usually stain the BB before cutting.
