    Those are FABULOUS! Whichever one was the Valentine Gift was very much loved, I'm sure!

    As for burning off the fuzzies, my experience has been practice, practice, practice - I've located one spot just off the point of the blue flame and found a minimum distance I have to be from the wood, and then pay attention to how quickly I move the flame -- it varies depending on wood type.

    Or, you make the burns part of the art work!

      Hey Tim, Very nice work there! I guess the best way to not burn when torchin is... Don't torch! Actually I have never tried it so I really don't know.

          digger, it doesn’t take much, just keep practing on other stuff til you feel comfy at tryin one of these…when you think you’re ready, try somethin simple first, it if not happy with it, keep practicing…..for me, it’s purely relaxin….well, “adele, lady gaga, taylor swift, areosmith, and a few other choice album selections” help make my scrollin easier

                nice work TIM,
                i too use a torch too burn off fuzzies,but find that a few scorch marks tend too add a bit of charecter too the piece,or maybe its just me being lazy,not removing
                not doing much
                and busy doing it

                having fun making sawdust.

                  Tim, good job... I had a father inlaw who made clocks from old railroad ties. he would burn it really good then use a wire brush on it. Looked cool...Lance

                    Looking good Tim,Had a thought looking at you horses in the barn,I would try cutting the horse out ,stain the barn ,a weathered gray add a backer w/boards look lines stained a little darker gray then stain the horse your perfered shade maybe a roan color ,just a thought ,I think I would jump off the page.not takeing away from your work ,you did an excellent job.Like a said just a thought,

                      mr. carl, any idea or comment is needed and/or put into thought for future cuttings, so thanx for that, i had been wonderin how i could stain just certain parts, w/o it bleeding into another part of the pattern, so now i’ll know on my next attempt at this cut….ok, now, any ideas for backer color for the grey stable horse cutting? i’m thinkin black???

                        darker gray or darker what ever you make the barn,you could always cut out the horse on one you have made if it does't already have a home!

                          Hi Jim.

                          The paints I used are mainly aerosol spray.

                          The green is Rus-oleum Painters touch, craft enamel.

                          The red is a stores brand own name, just called Wilko's

                          Don't know if you will get either of these in Mexico, but I'm

                          sure you...

                          Great work and patience needed to pull off these smaller toys. You did a fantastic job! I really like them.

                          I'm curious to know what type of paints you use if you don't mind sharing the brand name.

                          Nice precise work Alex, as always from you.

                          I also find Celtic these designs fascinating due to their intricacy and geometrical symmetry but I doubt I have your patience to cut them!

                          Well done!

                          Bstark, take a look at out simple table setup that I have posted in Bettys posting. This fair is an annual fund raiser for our churches women's group. So I pay for two 8 ft tables (so I don't need to bring any) A couple of nice table clothes and I put shutters on each end and made special shelves...

                          RJ actually that room was an add on to our sanctuary it was meant to be a Gym and the shutters where to protect the windows. I has never seen a basketball since it was built in 2001. Our pre school uses it and we use it for many events plus we rent it out for private use....
