  • Christmas presents

    Off sick, thanks to the little viruses the snot nose kids who don't cover their mouth when they cough gave to my wife...so I finally had time to download these from the camera and post them.

    THe first is a hotplate I cut out of poplar and finished with BLO...

    The second is another hotplate cut from tiger maple finished with BLO...

    The third is a clock cut from oak

    The fourth is a nativity scene cut from baltic birch

    See...I do cut some things out on occasion...

    Nice work, Bob. I'm curious about the wood - that poplar looks very dark on the pic - does BLO darken it that much?

    And .. what is tiger maple??? Never come across that - looks good though ...

        Wow Bob, you do know how to operate a scroll saw.
        And very well, if I say so myself. Those products look great, even magnified.

            Tiger maple is hard maple with a tiger-stripe grain pattern

            The poplar I choose was very dark; poplar changes color depending on the minerals in the soil where it grows...this one was nearly the color of walnut, but with a greenish tone. The BLO removed the greenish tone and left a rich, dark color.

                  Hmmmmm,

                  I'd say that work is nothing to sneeze at Bob.

                  Nice work indeed.

                    Terrific work Bob! How did you like working with the tiger maple? I've cut a few things out of figured maple and it was a bear to cut.

                          Thanks, Bob - I didn't know that - still largely a wood ignoramus here ..

                          I do have a piece here with some greenish streaks on it - is there a way of retaining these when its treated? Obviously BLO isnt the answer from what you said above ....

                            Hi Ian, I believe a water based polyurethane would preserve the color. I am sure there are better experts here on finishing though. I have found by experience to try a finish on a scrap piece FIRST. I have ruined a piece or two by just taking for granted that a product that does well on one wood may not be the desires effect on another. Steve

                              Ian if you have Minwax brand stains in you area they make a great natural stain that doesn't change the color of the wood and can be used to also lighten darker stains

                                That certainly will be a challenge, Since the wood appears to be well preserved, it will interesting to identify the wood - cedar or locust ???

                                I will need your advises to do that drawing (found on the web ), to make it in 3D , with cherry wood. It is a gift for my brother in law, for his messages of encouragement concerning the COVID. and since more than a year.

                                They say great minds think alike. I wanted to order the ones you sent me to try. I’ll be placing an order over the week-end for the #3 double skip and others. Bruce’s free tickets to Dover this week-end for the races may just cost him for leaving me here by myself for 3 days! And I got them in 2...
