  • Wedding Album

    I finally finished my boss's wedding gift, it is a Dirk Boleman design.

    It measures 13x13 1/4, and I used 1/4 Cherry plywood which was good on both sides....and for the fret work I used 1/8 BB plywood and just used a tung oil for a finish on it. Oh, I used a poly spray for the finish coat on the cherry.

    Just FYI, the photo on the album cover is of me and my bride, Ken and Linda are the soon to be wedded couple.

    That is doggoned nice, Bill. Great wedding gift. You either like your boss a lot or it's getting close to your annual review. Where did you get this idea from?

      That's one nice album you made there Bill. I've been considering making something similar to that, one for each of my boys. I really like how you have the picture mounted in there.

      I seem to make a lot of picture frames for my beloved, and I am always looking for better ways to put the pictures in the frames so that they can easily be changed out over the years. Those clips you have there are exactly what I've been looking for and can't find them anywhere. Where do you find them?

        Bill,

        You brown noser you...

        He he, are you going to leave your wedding picture in there?
        Is it a hint to let your boss know you have a family to feed too?

        All kidding aside, it's a nice job you have done on a great gift idea. I'm sure it will be very much appreciated.

        Regards,

          Jim, I bought the turn buttons thru Sloans, http://http://www.sloanswoodshop.com/misc_.htm this should take you to the page.

          Marcel, maybe just a little brown nose but seriously, he has bought several of my portraits and brought me some customers also, so I'm just showing a little gratitude.

          My wife sure likes it too, so yup, you guessed it.....I have another one to do.

              Nice gift, well done, but being slightly compulsive I would have to line up the screw slots or cover them with some nice wooden buttons.

              My boss would never understand the effort and skill that goes into something like that.

                    Bill,
                    Can I give your number to some of my employees ?
                    Never hurts to put some extra bling in the brownie point bank account

                    All kidding aside, that is a very nicely done project that will be cherished for years to come .
                    Good job !

                      So glad they were supportive, it is a bit disappointing that they had to be. But like any tool manufacturer they have to out source many of the components like the motor. At least the motor is mounted externally for an easy change. How true was the blade to the miter slots etc.
                      I like the fact...

                      Steve posted it about 2 weeks ago. I just put out a small sampling of items to see what people are interested in. Seems to be everything! I did notice I had more credit charges than last year. But the ones who paid cash were the ones who paid $7 for a gallon of milk and $10 for a loaf of sourdough bread....

                      Way to go, Betty. Our farmers market does not allow craft sales.

                      Two great customer service stories on this forum in a week. There is hope. Even in 2020.
