  • Three New Portraits

    G'day all,
    I cut these last week.
    The Horses and Wolf pattern are by Grandpa (Paul) and the Duke is my own pattern.

    They are cut from 4mm Hoop Pine with a Radiata Pine frame stained various colours.

    Enjoy.

              Thanks Bubba Something about the"Wild Horses" Pattern grabbed me aswell. I couldn't stop going back and looking at and finally decided the only way to get it out of my system was to cut it.

              G'day Kim, The Duke my Favourite as well as my Dads'. My Dad is my real life Duke. The trick I've found with the Radiata Pine is to sand it down to 320 prior to staining.

              Thganks Lance, I made that pattern about 5 years ago and up until I cut this one, Dad was the only person to have one. I made the pattern and cut it for him for his birthday way back then.

              G'day Marshall, Yep, they turned out pretty good if I may say so myself. I'm never sure if I'm going to be completely happy with a project until I've put the final coat of finish on it.

              Sunlion, thanks mate. I'm slowly collecting all of J.W.'s movies again on DVD and BlueRay. I had heaps on VHS and it made me cry, well almost when I took them to the tip.

                              What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...

                              I remember Russel well. I think he went back to the days of Free4all.

                              FYI: I just completed an index of the Charity Ornament book from SSV and Birchbank designed quite a few ornaments.

                              Denny, you are correct, his name is Russell. While he may not have been here in years, he pops in at the Village forum from time to time. I just checked and he hasn’t been there since July. I would suggest that you send him a PM perhaps through the Village and see if you get a response.

                              I think his name is Russel. I checked and he was last on the forum in 2014. I had a request for one of his patterns. Fortunately I still had a copy. Anyone heard from him?
