  • Christmas gift for son

    My son loves to restore old trucks and cars. He has an ancient Ford truck he's been working on for a while.

    This is for him.

    Pattern is by Trapper

      hey! nice rippersmom.

      I built bikes for quite a few years, (aye old arthritic UK biker holds hand up) and loved to tinker and strip/rebuild/build etc bikes.) would have been absolutley over the moon if my old man (sadly deceased) had done that for me.

      Kudos man for just the jesture, let alone the good work on the piece.

      hehe sorry mom, old habits, anyone in my book has kudos they are man, as in Mmmm you know what I mean if your over 50 and still hip. hehe.

        When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

            @Jan & Fran,
            Thanks, I think he will be surprised and happy when I give it to him.

            I dig it, and am most definitely far over 50 these days. Thanks.

            I don't know anything about Trapper, just liked the pattern

                              None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                              What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                              The bags seem easier on the surface.
                              But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                              Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                              As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                              I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....
