  • Are you ready for st. Patricks day?

    This is a Shamrock that I got from Steve Good. I cut them out of !/4" Playwood and stained them with Red Mahogany and mined the stones from Hobby Lobby. Wife suggested painting them Green and useing a Clear Stone. It's about 1 3/4" X 1 5/8 " I stacked cut 4 at a time.

        I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

        If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.
