  • An Alien has landed, and he has a clock!

    My neighbor is a UFO searcher, so this is what I made him for Xmas this year.
    The pattern is from Scrollsaw Workshop and modified a bit.

    I sprayed the base with the textured spray that looks like rock. I like that stuff!

          Thanks, y'all

          I know my neighbor will get a big kick out of it, and that's what is so much fun; to make little special things for good neighbors and friends.

          Lance, I'm not near Area 51, I'm in NW Arizona. But there have been sightings here and in Nevada, too, so I'm told. I haven't seen a UFO yet, but maybe one of these days........I might.

              Hi Bob,

              The pattern is on Steve Good's site; Scrollsaw Workshop. He has lots of free patterns. Scrollsaw Workshop

              I modified the original pattern when I made the clock.

                Nancy, that is just too dang cute...I know she will enjoy it!!! I'm with you, I luv that textured paint...you can use it on so many things, but it gets pricey so I try to find it on sale/clearance. Tip...when using it, don't forget to hold the can upside down and spray the extra gunk out, as the tips/nozzles seem to clog really easy between uses.

                    What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                    The bags seem easier on the surface.
                    But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                    Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                    As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                    I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....

                    I shrink wrap all my puzzles. It is the best method I have found. I do not use a cardboard backer as some do. I use shrink wrap bags that I get from Amazon or Ebay. 8" x 12" will fit 95% of the puzzles I make.

                    To use the bags you will need a sealer. I have one very similar...
