  • Just a couple projects

    Here are a couple projects I've finished recently. The portrait is one of Mike Fehring's and the shelf is from an issue of SSWC. The portrait is probably one of the last ones I'll be using spiral blades on. I'm losing the feeling in my fingers so it's getting really hard to control the wood and spiral blades are unforgiving. The shelf was done in response to a Youtube video to prove you can do descent work with an old saw (Craftsman Direct Drive with Bosch pinned end blades from local hardware store). The last one is another pattern from the magazine but I ran out of wood and had to finish it with a plain bottom.

    It's only a mistake if someone saw you do it.

    It's not about what saw you drive. It's about the skill you drive it with.

    Beautiful work!!! Really impressing shelf -- especially with an old say and pin-end blades. My hat is off to you. Nice shaping on that frog!!

    Sorry about the feeling in your fingers. Hope that whatever is causing that can be stopped. Thanks for sharing those pics!

          Thanks everybody. I think I may redo the crown of thorns with maybe a #5 reverse blade or something like that and use a good plywood instead of the luan ply this one is done with.

                I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

                My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

                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.
