  • puzzles and ornaments

    I have had some gumption and time so I produced some puzzles and ornaments.

    The Spam is from a political flyer that came in the mail. I often get flyers on card stock and think they would be a good puzzle. This one made it as far as being cut. 1/8" bb and glued down with tacky glue.
    The block of wood puzzle is from one of the give away piles of wood from a local wood crafters club. Cut with FD puzzle blade. It is 8" long. I don't know what kind of wood it is. Nice and medium hard so it will keep the small locks.
    The ornaments are cut from 3/16 plywood that I used for the inside walls of my lil shop. I have lots of pieces of that left for practice wood. I stack cut them with FD UR 3 and 5 blades, soaked them in Watco exterior oil and hung them up here to cure. I have plans of hanging them in the mesquite tree in the front yard for Christmas decor. These are cut from of Steve Good's patterns.

    All very well done. I never ceases to intrigue me the innovative displays and drying racks we come up with as a collective.

      Great use for items that would go into the garbage or fire place. Very nice work, I use Steve's patterns for a lot of my stuff.

        Yup Arthur, Steve makes a lot of good patterns. He has some that are easy for beginners and some that are more challenging as well.

              Steve has my vote too!
              It will be interesting to see if any of those neat ornaments get stolen from an outdoor tree. Nice collection of projects!

                Sally, that is my wife's comment too. So ... If they are we will move what's left to the back yard tree.

                  Betty - Norma is 5ft 1", her sister who lives next door and often eats with us is 5ft 3". Their father who is recovering from recent knee surgery and staying with us at the moment is also about 5ft 3". I'm almost 5ft 11". You see my dilema!

                  Thanks Tony for the safety advice. Being one eyed these days I am definitely going to be taking extra care to wear suitable face protection. As to the safety videos, yes, I've already checked out several and pulled up a lot of very useful information. Whilst I've never turned wood before as a practising...

                  Betty - yes my design. I'm editing the video I made while making the feature ring.

                  Jim - I know I'm preaching to a member of the choir, but, please watch some of the Youtube videos on wood turning safety. There's a dozen or so of them out there. There are three words you'll hear a lot --...

                  Hi Linda - thanks for the comments on the welds. It took me an hour or so to get into the swing of MIG wire welding but I really like it in preference to stick welding especially for welding thinner material. I confess to investing in a new angle grinder to help with the cleanup and dressing. I bought...
