  • christmas presents for my daughters

    I just finish these two cuttings for my daughters for Christmas. Never again will I spray glue straight to the pattern and wood. It took me hours to sand it off. One is on wavy oak and the other on maple. Very hard as each is an 1" thick.

      Did you try mineral spirits to loosen the glue? I only ever did one piece out of maple. So hard I refuse to use it again.

        Get some clear removable (repositionable) contact paper put it under the pattern. For big projects a lot cheaper than blue tape.
        They are beautiful, especialy the first one. Who is the designer?

          Rolf: I really wish I could tell you. I had it in my folder from teaching special education students and have forgotten when or where I got it. I will try to find it again and if I do I will let you know.

            Scrolling Jim, I use blue tape or frog tape I'm going to try contact paper. Nice job on the cuttings. Lance

                  Nice, I like the first one also, it has elements of the tribal style in the cuts, of which I like.

                  Nice work.

                      I use Lacquer thinner to remove the spray glue. It's takes it all off with just a few swipes and leaves no oily residue on your wood like mineral spirits.

                        Glad things worked out.

                        I just updated my older PC. The hard drive was 500 gb and eight years old. I cloned it to a one TB SSD (solid state drive). Put the cloned drive in and worked perfectly with all my old programs. The computer is now much faster. The new drive was about $100 and...

                        Once upon a time ( in the 70's) i attempted bow hunting. I believe the bow had a 45 pound draw. I quickly learned that it was not for me. It takes lot of hard work and practice just to be fair at it. Good is a whole different level. I hope you do better than I did.

                        So glad you are back up and running. You will be awed by the speed of your new drive, fresh drivers, and cleaned up files. Spring housecleaning!
