  • Up coming projects..

    here I am looking for new projects when the fish I just finished is still sitting on the work bench waiting to be hung...

    I need to make a raffle grand prize that will be giving away at our next fishing get together in October....I think they would be pretty excited about winning the piece...


    This is another project I'm thinking about doing. It will be a gift for my sister and brother in-law in Montana, they have a horse ranch in Livingston..


    This one would look good on our wall...


    I found these patterns at Intarsia.com
    has anyone done any of Judy and Jerry's patterns?

    I also like some of Kathy Wise horse patterns...

    all I need is patterns, wood and 6 months...

    it's 4th of July...

    and I'm at home sitting here at this dumb computer....don't worry Mrs.Trout is over on the couch with here laptop...

    I have to work a couple hours tonight...
    I work for a school district so tonight I have to go start up two generators with 400,000 watt light towers to light up one of our playgrounds so that people don't go there to light off their fireworks...

    Let's see, 5 hours of double time for an hours worth of work....

    that should pay for my patterns and wood....

        some guys fish for them, but I'm not one of them.....

        they keep telling me...try it, you'll like it....

        me in my trout boat fishing for bass...that would look just as funny as a guy fishing for trout out of his bass boat....

                Hey Evie;
                I like bass too. Between bass and a some small perch , that's about all there is in Duck Lake a couple miles from home. No big fish around here but these little bass and perch are fun to catch whenever I get a chance to go and get a few like this.
                Maybe sombody can tell me if those are large mouth or small mouth bass. I wouldn't know the difference
                Someone once told me they use little fish like these for bait to catch real fish. Oh well, to each his own.

                    Looks like largemouth bass to me. I owned a taxidermy shop for 6 years when I was on disability and had done it for a hobby for 15 years. Really enjoyed doing fish. That looks like a GOOD day fishing. Congratulations! How far north of the border are you? I'm just down in NW Montana.

                      Tim;
                      As the crow flies, I am just six miles north of the border where the Idaho panhandle meets British Columbia.
                      If you are in NW Montana perhaps you are in the area of Troy or Libby or even Kalispel ? ? ? . Those are all areas of Montana that I am familiar with. I participate in several bluegrass festivals in Libby Montana every year. Another 8 day one coming up next month.
                      Perched up on the mountainside here, from my shop and/or kitchen and living room windows I see mountains on both the Canadain and the USA side of the border..
                      That is highway # 3a down on the left winding around the (n/e) side of the valley.

                        This video was taken where Bruce volunteers at the sawmill. Bruce is the tall one at the back of the saw.

                        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...

                        This is the puzzle, for some reason I usualy make my puzzels with thicker stock, sometimes 3/4 oak or pine or poplar. I have made puzzels in the past I just wanted to get some fresh ideas on blades and finish. I like the idea of applying shellac first that is if the paint sitll covers...

                        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...
