          Sawdustjoe,
          How about moving it closer to California - it sounds like a lot of fun! (and work)

            Well, we got one in Portland Or, the end of July. That is a little closer. For more info check the Wooden Teddy Bear site.

            When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.

                I'm hoping to be able to make it on Sunday (Saturday's out as I have a fair). do you happen to know what the admission is? The website doesn't have that info. It would likely be a family outing so I want to make sure I have enough cash on hand.
                Thanks,

                Kevin

                  Cute Pattern.
                  I have good success treating the wood with spry shellac before cutting. There will not be a problem painting the pieces with craft paint over the shellac. As previously said, just be sure to keep the paint off of the cut edges. If you want to seal the craft paint, a light spray coat...

                  No more waiting for weeks to start therapy. The sooner you use the replacement the better. Bruce was doing mild hand exercises the day after his surgery and bending slightly at the elbow. They expected him in pt for at least 6-9 months. He stopped in February and is doing home therapy, like lifting...
