  • Cheesy Yard Art

    My latest creation. Ignore the background. I had just gotten him glued up and didn't want to move him. His mouth and eyes glow in the dark.

    A request from a friend of mine. Now just for a clear coat and then it gets tangled in orange lights and he's done.

    Off to Lowes for more plywood. Oh, and need to order some blades from Mike too so I can make more Cheesy Yard Art.

        Kelly. When you clear coat it for outdoor use, what do you apply? How long does it protect the paint, and does it STAY clear (no yellowing)? Looks nice. dale (a nudder cheesehead)

          I actually would be proud to put that "Cheesy Yard Ornament" on my front steps for Holloween. You did a great job on the paint.

              Dale,

              Normally, I would have the hubby clear coat it with automotive clear. It's has a serious UV stablizer in it and would last about as long as a paint job on a car.

              But I didn't want that much of a shine on the cat so I found a clear coat aerosol at Home Depot for indoor/outdoor projects with a UV protectant. It says it's not supposed to yellow and I'm not sure how long it will last. I figure she may need to recoat it in a couple of years to keep it looking good. Or I should say, she'll get me to recoat it in a couple of years. I think the clear coat I found was a Minwax product. I know I found something by Olympic at Lowes online but I was right at Home Depot and found something comparable. The Winfield Collection has their own variety just for these types of things, but I didn't want to wait a week or two for it to arrive and I don't think it comes in aerosol.

              To everyone else, thanks for the kind words. I must say this was a fun project. My favorite part is when he glows in the dark. Looks just like a chesire cat.

                Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

                Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

                Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

                My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
                I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
                Was it a good idea.....?...

                Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

                The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
