  • Headboard

    Here is something a little different. I had to replace a bed at a beach cottage and needed to make a new headboard. As it was not important I just threw something together out of MDF. After I had finished I realised that I had something that was crying out for embellishment. My initial thought was to perhaps set a piece of fretwork into it. Maybe a tiger on my side and a rose on the other. However as my scroll saw was very sick at the time with tension problems (now fixed) it would have been too tedious to overcome the problem with every cut.
    I therefore decided to make a simple design and embed sand and shells from the beach with polyester resin to make a feature. The result was not brilliant but was only intended as an experiment. I learned a lot from the exercise.

          I forgot to mention the 5000 watt(?) generator his brother gave him. His brother does house remodeling and lots of times people give him “stuff” just to get rid of it. Bruce had to drain the gas, change the fuel lines and some other minor things for $35 and it starts on the first pull....

          This is his $40 haul. The paint bush was never used. He cleaned up the grinder. He added up all the attachments and brand new everything would be almost $800. This was their yearly tool swap. Every month members bring things they don’t need and swap smaller items. Even scrap wood. Anything 5”x5”...

          Where are you located in England? I was at RAF Lakenheath back in the early 70's and bought my 70 TVR Vixen, which I still have. I absolutely loved my time there.!...
