  • signs and an old truck

    Old truck. Steve Good pattern with a few little modifications

    Pen holder for someone who is just turning 50 YO.

    18x13. In sign: this is a Cocoa pod inlay, it is made of 4 types of wood, and the back is a solid 1 and a half in thick 12x17 mahogany piece. for those who dont know, from the seeds is where the chocolate comes from.

    and finally a 68x18 in. sign. the backing is a slice of Teak. very common here but we dont use it as its very hard to work with. i personally really like it and besides the blades it dulls, i dont mind to work with it.

        Excellent cuttings, I have made the old truck from Steve,s pattern. Loaded the bed with small cuttings of tree branches. I donated it to my local Hospital's Pediatric ward.

                Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need.

                Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
