  • First three projects

    I made these for Christmas gifts this year.

    First Fret work. I made six of these...

    First attempt at intarsia. I made nine of these...

    First portrait and first pattern attempt. This is a picture of my mother that I never saw until after her death. I gave it to my dad yesterday and I could tell he really liked it, although he never shows emotion at all. This is the project I am most proud of.

          Great first pieces. Love the intarsia. Looks very hard to do.

              Thanks for your nice comments. You all helped a lot. I almost felt like I knew what I was doing before I started.

                You should be proud of that portrait and I know your father would like it. It is very well done.

                    That is a fantastic portrait, Dan - both the pattern and the cutting. Hard to believe it's your first!

                      Dan, that is great work! Just comparing the actual picture with the pattern you created helped me better understand how to adjust my own technique in pattern making, thanks for sharing.

                          Dan! I fell in love with the intarsa but then I saw the pic of your mother. WoW!!! First, she was a beautiful woman. Second, That is a superb wooden cut. You did a first class job on that cut and the frame. Your mom is definitely smiling upon you this Christmas!!!

                            Hi, Dan,
                            I agree with all the other comments that you did extremely well if those are firsts!
                            You certainly didn't shy away from delicate cuts with that portrait and you really did an excellent job.
                            I really don't understand why all the fretwork on the part of a frame that won't show
                            when a photo is inserted but, you did an excellent job on that project as well.
                            Thank you for sharing and God Bless! Spirithorse

                              I wish Bruce a speedy recovery. If his recovery is similar as that of a friend he will be up and around in no time at all. My friends is over weight and had both knees done 5 days apart. Physical therapy helpd alot.

                              I had to replace the motor on my Hawk that we purchased new in 2002. I just called up Hawk & they had me send them my motor the power switch. He needed to collaborate the new motor and to my power switch. The new motor was sent back with in the week. I did this back in 2018 and it was a little...

                              I've tried label paper as well. It peels off reasonably well, although different brands will probably perform differently. When it doesn't come off easily, I have a little heat gun that makes release quickly. When I have used 3M spray adhesive and left it on for too long, a hair dryer or heat gun...
