  • belt buckle

    a simple belt buckle i did using three types of wood, the middle one is brazilian cherry, know localy as 'guapinol' the sides are honduran rosewood. the clear one is 'huesito'. finished with a generic sealer and then two coats of spray can polyurethane.
    i know you may not get the names but till i find a way to compare the types of wood that you have there i think the local names will do for now.

    have a nice night..

        Beautiful! Where do you get the hardware? How do you attach the hardware to the wood?

            here they sell this normal buckles(that one had some rhinestones attached to it but i sand them of) in a hardware store that sell leather(the whole cow hide) but they don't sell the blanks, sadly. anyway i use clear epoxy to joint the buckle to the wood and that seems to work fine, this is the firts one i make, if that is not enough, i will drill holes in the metal and use small screw to secure it a little more.
            but so far is working the way its done.

            now i will try to put inlays on the new ones.

              Quote, I kept my old computer even though it was barely alive simply due to one particular program...Picassa by Google...which they removed from the market years ago. It worked like a combo photo and editing program but easier. It could take a photo and change it to a line drawing beautifully...

              There is a free software package by GLARY Utilities by glarysoft that our local computer club uses to clean junk off do hard drives and defrag. They recommend running it monthly. You should also check for malware which most antivirus software does not prevent.

              Actually, Jim, I'm delighted that making bowls with the scroll saw is still a viable part of the scroll saw repertoire.
