  • It is time to think Christmas

    With Christmas coming up I thought I would make a few of these for friends and charity auctions.

    The figure design was done by Stan Graves back in 1997 for some DuPont Corian craft kits. I think that I will rewrite the instructions since they included a lamp. I did not care for it. So I designed the cave.

    That is very nice. I like the "cave" idea.

    I have a suggestion for you in regards to posting pics, so they are not so large. Try using this method to upload them from your hard drive.

    Here is the preferred way to post photos. This method will apply a thumbnail so that messages load faster, keeping those who are still on dial up in mind.

    Click on the Go Advanced button under the reply box, Click on Manage Attachments, click Browse, find your file name on your computer, click it, then click Upload. It may take a few seconds to load.
    Once you see the file name under current attachments you can close the window.
    If you want you can Preview Post (a wise choice) then if all is well, click on Submit reply.
    Good luck

      Thanks for the advice. I was embarrassed when I saw the picture, but i did not know how to change it.


      Don't be embarrassed, always feel free to ask for some guidance. Happy you were able to get it fixed.

        I got the picture fixed. Thank you

        When I did, I found a picture of the original lamp by Stan Graves.

            That's a beautiful project Ken. What did you cut it out of? Looks like plastic and counter top material. Don

                It is Corian. 3 1/4" pieces for each figure and 1/2" for the base and cave.

                The figures are laminated after cutting. I could have heated and bent the cave as well. Maybe next time.

                  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...

                  I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

                  I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

                  First off how thick is the board you cut?
                  When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
                  that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
                  for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

                  I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

                  Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.
