  • 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.

                  3-layer sailboat plaque
                  by Ennobee
                  After earlier this year I went through my books and got me a score of images of vintage sailing ships(*), I keep in finding new ways of making plaques with this designs. After trying my hand at segmentation, which kind-of worked, and multiple bevel-cuts,
                  which I still have to keep trying until...

                  I made the first wolf for my grandson’s birthday. I have made 5 more and sold them all! Personally, I hope to never see another kayak again!...

                  Update: I just realized I never posted any pictures of the finished fourth ship. I finished it about 6 weeks ago and have since tried a series of different techniques with some other illustrations from the same book. I'll post about that in a different thread. In the meantime, here is the last of my...

                  Scott,
                  I was shocked, yet most appreciative, of the surprise I found in the mail today. I am truly thankful for the friends I have made on the board.
                  We are a small group, but I feel we all would jump in a second to come to the aid of each other. This is my electronic family.
