  • wedding plague completed from ssw

    I GOt through with the wedding plaque from the latest issue of SSW and gave it to my sister even it was a few months late, her and her new husband loved it. I made it from 1/2" Red Oak, stained with Golden oak and 4 coats of poly. I Used FD reverse #3 on this project. A Little more work then just attaching a pattern and cutting as you have to put in the names and the date but the time was worth the effort.

        I used 1/2" cause the pattern called for 3/4" in the materials list, but all I Had was 1/2" so I made due with what I had. Just as a side note I only used one FD blade on the entire project and it was cutting as well at the end as it was at the beginning.

          Cool Wayne,

          Nice job on putting it all together, letters & all.

          One #3 blade for the whole thing? That's is really good. I guess it means you don't push on the sides too much

          Keep up the good work,

                Woodgrain is like a straw sucking in the pigment, but I think you did a good job on a complex piece. Lots of patience for this pattern.

                Thanks Rolf,
                I actually tried painting the inside of the cuts before removing the pattern and tape. I initially used packing tape because I was out of painters tape. When I sprayed the cuts, apparently the paint bled into the fibers of the wood. But I have to say I have been redeemed by my wife....

                Nice project, I really like the design. You did use a tough piece of material, I would normally suggest cutting at least 3 layers of 1/8 BB because you will get requests of them. I am curious as to why you got some black bleeding into the grain? Is this mounted on a black backer ?

                This is my latest project and I'm still up in the air about it. The wood was reclaimed from a table that someone had thrown away. It is 3/4 MDF with veneer on both sides. The project is 11 x 14 and is pretty heavy. The pattern was from "Grandpa" and I believe his real name is Paul. I used...
