  • Finally finished

    This is copied and pasted from my FB page:
    Gary Mann order. Measures about 16" wide and 24" tall. Cut from scrap pieces of cherry for the corners, a cherry ply backer and Bubinga for the Chinese lettering and frame. Means ""SHORINKAN KANJI" The Kanji (symbols) say "shorinkan" which is the specific type of Karate we practice. (quoted from Gary Mann)

    I did have some problems squaring this up and had to rip the frame off with the table saw and go about it differently. I have never done a framed piece before, so this was a challenge for me.

      Cute Pattern.
      I have good success treating the wood with spry shellac before cutting. There will not be a problem painting the pieces with craft paint over the shellac. As previously said, just be sure to keep the paint off of the cut edges. If you want to seal the craft paint, a light spray coat...

      This is the puzzle, for some reason I usualy make my puzzels with thicker stock, sometimes 3/4 oak or pine or poplar. I have made puzzels in the past I just wanted to get some fresh ideas on blades and finish. I like the idea of applying shellac first that is if the paint sitll covers...

      No more waiting for weeks to start therapy. The sooner you use the replacement the better. Bruce was doing mild hand exercises the day after his surgery and bending slightly at the elbow. They expected him in pt for at least 6-9 months. He stopped in February and is doing home therapy, like lifting...
