  • 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.

                        I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

                        Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

                        We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
