  • Fun project




    Tried something different. The wood is 1/8" BB plywood. There is 6 layers. The frames I made like small serving trays that the pictures sit down in. The frames are 1/4" oak. Ever try to mix paint and come up with the color of a female cardinal? Artist I am not, I did enjoy making them.

    Well Mick, I think they are beautiful.
    I love cardinals and you have done a fabulous job. "A painter your not", I disagree with that statement, I really do love them.

          Those look great Mick, and the painting looks great too. I'm always amazed by the variety and quality of things people on here produce.

          Judging by Steve's photos you did very well with the colour - I don't think we have cardinals here in NS, which is a shame.

            That looks really nice and we have cardinals here. Yours look very good and very close to the ones that feed in the back.

                  Love it-- i think you are quite good at painting--much more so than I will ever be..And I like the way you framed them--very clever of you.

                    Very impressive ! Did you make the tray components using a template?

                      Gill, saw the trays in a craft store and remembered how they looked. Went home and drew up a pattern for them, is that stealing? They are 9 1/2" X 12".

                        Of course it's not stealing, Mick. Heck, there's a whole seaside resort over here called Skegness which was a direct copy of another resort called Scarborough. Nobody accused the architects of theft.

                        Similarly, Brighton Pavilion was built by the Prince Regent as a copy of the Taj Mahal.

                        Lots of people copy good ideas quite legally; there's a world of difference between taking inspiration and plagiarism.

                            Very nice. That could be featured in a future article along with plans of course.

                                Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

                                We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.
