  • 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..

      Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

        Beautiful! Where do you get the hardware? How do you attach the hardware to the wood?
        DeWalt 788

            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.

              Just Wondering...

              Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

              With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

              I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

              Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

              I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

              If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...

              Hi Linda, great find...I think.

              Please keep us up to date with any information you receive. I would really like to get into this, but my computer skills are almost nonexistent, I need something that a 74 year old air head 🙄 can figure out. Thanks for sharing.
