  • Packing-SAFELY

    I have some fretwork that I would like to package.
    They seem awful fragile, and was looking for a way to keep them safe.
    Also a good way to display. These have no backing.

    It's all fun

    what type of guarantee do you want that someone will not damage the package ? the only two things that I am familiar with are bubble wrap and foam peanuts, your local post office sell everything that you will need

      I cover my fretwork with tissue paper & then I place my fretwork in between 2 pieces of corrugated cardboard just slightly larger than the workpiece. I then tape around it so it is snug and won't bend easily. I then wrap in bubble wrap and place in appropriate sized box or some envelopes. Depending on size you can purchase unused boxes from your local pizza place they are sturdy and inexpensive. This method has worked for me for shipping for over 20 years now.

        Dang Mike; what a good idea about the pizza boxes. I would have never thought of that. Thanks for that tip!

          You are very welcome...Don't forget most pizza joints have 4-5 different sizes.

              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.

              I have harvested some very interesting specimens in the last 10 years. Bookmatched ash that was absolutely beautiful; red oak, maple, some spalted "something" and more.
              But since most of the cross boards on pallets are 3 to 4 nches wide and 3/8" to 5/8", I have few uses for...

              I have an implanted spinal cord stimulator to help with back pain. They also have warnings about welding. I could not get one when I was working in an electric furnace steelmaking shop as the electrodes were over 1000 amps and volts. I have also decided to stay away from welding as I just do not...
