  • Cops for Cancer Projects

    The crunch is near. I need to have everything done by Saturday.
    Here is a picture of the bicycle sprocket and the picture frame.
    I am not sure if I am going to put plexi in the frame pocket or leave it open.
    I also have to cyclists one full size and one around 3 inches tall.
    I need to mount them on bases and put felt on the bottom.
    I was thinking of making a business card holder with the smaller one but the cards will cover the cyclist completely.
    I know I could mount a board behind the cyclist but I really do not have enough time to do it justice.

    I really like that sprocket.
    And the wood you used for the frame is beautiful. Curly maple?

      Carl, both of these projects are A+

      I remember the thread on the sprocket, but the frame is new to me, what kind of wood is it?

        It is curly maple, sometimes known as quilted maple and fiddleback maple
        This piece is surplus from a guitar maker.
        It is a bit of a pain to finish, a planer doesnt work so it is sand sand sand.

          But it sure is purty, Carl!
          You've done a really good job, from selecting the patterns and choosing the wood to cutting and finishing.
          Good for you!

            The final two Cops for Cancer contributions.
            Tomorrow night is the fund raiser.
            They cyclist was a big hit last year. A Sue Mey pattern.
            I shrank it down this year and made a business card holder.

            That gave me a chance to display some of my cards at the fundraiser

            Now that I have seen the cyclist of Charlie Dearing that Bill did I wish I had that pattern too.
            Maybe next year

                I hope tomorrow night is a big success for you, Carl. It certainly should be on the evidence of those pieces.

                I agree with Evie - your smooth finish is to be admired.

                  The success will be for the kids, and the cops who bid at the silent auction.
                  I am sure cancer has touched every one of us somewhere along the line.
                  For me it was my dad.

                  We don't always have money to contribute to these causes but there are other ways we can help.


                  As for the smooth finish, it is an optical illusion.

                  If there is one thing I have to work on it is my finishing skills.
                  I used tung oil which I applied generously with an animal hair brush.
                  I used 220 grit sandpaper between coats.
                  The last sanding I did was with an old piece of lightweight canvas that was stiff with dried tung oil.

                  What I really need is a dust free environment like Chuck suggested.
                  I may go to Canadian Tire and buy an indoor greenhouse.

                  I never was very good at finishes even in high school. I still want to try Future floor Wax. It doesn't leave streaks on the floor so it should be good for wood.

                  I have some ideas for next years projects, if I wasn't a procrastinator I would start them sometime.

                    Shrink wrap systems
                    by Linda In Phoenix
                    What do you use to shrink wrap, and what do you use it on? Lately in the puzzles section I've seen a couple of you mention shrink wrapping. I've considered such a leap. Even though the basics are all similar from manufacturer to manufacturer, it's still leaves some questions. Maybe others have...

                    Brrrr. Glad you got to sell a little. I miss the people interaction. A lot. I hope you found some pretty pieces of wood at the store!

                    New tools can definitely open up the scope of what we can do, or how well I'm on the band wagon. Congrats!

                    At work (like 15 years ago) we got in some aluminum sheet on pallets 4'x12'. Those pallets were like brand new, without even any discoloring from the metals. I asked our sales rep, and he said I could keep one pallet. I removed all the 4' boards, which measured about 1/2" thick, 4" wide...

                    I agree that needs to be saved for a special project. The wood is likely oak based on the grain pattern and the discoloration around the nail.
