  • 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.

                Sheesh, the only gifts I've ever given to my bosses were 2 week notices, LOL. Nice job on that Bill.

                    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 !

                      Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                      Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                      My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                      I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                      Was it a good idea.....?...

                      Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                      The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...

                      I would start by tracing your piece on a piece of 1/8" (3mm) material and then cut the back our such that it is a fraction smaller that your project. Then I would cut your piece into two pieces. I mean cut the angel from the cloud. I would then put the cloud on the 1.8" backer and then with...
