            those are so neet. I love the one that is holding the flag. did you add that to the patten, so cool

            I could store them at my place. that would look good all year around.

            That reminds me.

            HOw do you guys keep your paint from splitting. do you put fiberglass on them . mine need painting every year. I thought of doing them in fiberglass, not with the cloth , but just the fiberglass stuff. have any of you tryed that, and if so, how dose it work , and how do you prepare the wood after it is painted. My Son did that to his shower. put wall papper on the walls of his shower. then fiberglased it. looks great. and doesn't pell. just wonder how it would work with porus wood.

                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...
