  • will8989 - Here's your Wizard

    Here's a pic of your wizard. I hope you don't mind that I posted it. It's a very beautiful project and I know you were having trouble posting the pic here in the message board.

    That is indeed a lovely piece. I really love the flowing design and the choice of colors. What material is it cut from?

          I have that pattern. It's in the, ahem, "other" magazine. February 1998 issue.

            Gee, guys, I feel so flattered. Sorry I didn't respond sooner, but I just read my messages and saw where Marsha posted this for me. THANK YOU Marsha. Yes it is the "other" magazine. It was a gift for my daughter for Christmas a few years back, one of my first serious projects. It is made from Black walnut and I really worked to get the dragons laid out on the burl part of the wood which had almost gold flecks in it and they looked really fabulous BUT my dear daughter wanted it painted!!!! I very carefully painted just the top of it with acrylic paints. For the rock I just started with some color of gray and kept adding different colors until I got what I thought looked like a very old rock! If you look at it from the other side you can see the burl part but it isn't as pretty as what I painted over. The moral of this story is I ask her first if she wants it painted or natural then pick my wood from there.

              I just keeps getting worse, I am already growing moss from being in the basement so much. Now I see another beautiful project that I MUST make.

                Jim, if you scroll down to the bottom of the page, on the left you’ll find some style options that change the font size and color. I’ve been using Defalt vB5 Style, and it seems to be about the best for my iPad, but I’m still experimenting with my iMac.

                Hi - This is my first visit to the forum in about 3 weeks and I was surprised to see the font size so large after checking on two different browsers on my PC, namely Chrome and Edge. Both my browsers are set to 100% view and other sites look fine on my 27" monitor. Also the forum looks far too...

                Linda your goal was accomplished - to do something you wanted and get it in front of lots of people plus you won a ribbon. Great job!
