  • Second hubby and me project

    This is a picture of the project that hubby and I were working on to hide that we were actually working on two at the same time (the other one was the housewarming gift). They were lots of fun and we had a good time working together. We are now working on our own projects, and Craig starts doubling up on the college classes this month so he can finish this year, so no more projects together for a while.

    That's both unusual and lovely. You and your hubby are so talented.

    Did you cut the rainbow bands individually? You've done a wonderful job on them.

    There is no opinion, however absurd, which men will not readily embrace as soon as they can be brought to the conviction that it is readily adopted.

      Your work is very nice, but I think the best part is that you did it together!

        CM--you guys did a great job on the scene. I also have the book and chose to do the "Apple Tree" first (see my gallery). I found that cutting all the leaves was a pain and the frame is a lot of work too. Yours looks really professional.

          Nicely done,

          You did a great job on the miters for the frame! Not easy to have tight fitting miters on 4 corners, much less on 12 @ 15° each.

          The scrolling is awesome too, those birds and foliage details must have been fun to cut.

          I also am curious to know if the sun's 'colours' were cut separately or if you did it in one piece, and if so how did you avoid colour bleeding?

          My only negative comment is that the frame seems to have some 'nibs' in the finish; perhaps a little more sanding was required between coats, or maybe a finer final sanding ? (nothing that can't be corrected)

          But overall : Congrats, and keep doing whatever you do, it's nice

            Thanks everyone! The sky was cut out of one piece. I drew the half-circles then cut the strips, then painted, then glued each together and on a back board.
            Marcel-you are right about the finish. By the time we were almost done with the two projects, we were so tired of doing them, that we just didnt sand anymore. Because this one was just for us we didnt worry as much about the finish as we should have.
            Also, found out that hubby and Ihave different views on what constitutes "good enough" and "finished"
            But we stayed married, and had a good time

                  Then I bet you cut the "Fish and Filet" pattern from Steve Good!

                  Greetings from central Indiana. Most of the good stuff I know about scrolling, I learned here. The rest was from fixing mistakes or doing stuff again because I didn't pay attention to what I read here.
                  So, ask your questions and post your photos.
