    just gave this sign to Jose, he is a shoe repair guy who works in the street close to my folks'. he did not know that we were giving him the sign, so he was afraid that we were charging him for it. when we told them it was free he was all smiles, as you can see in the photo.
    we made this sign with my nephew who likes to use the scrollsaw from time to time and my dad, they both were happy that i was not charging for it and help me gladly.

    the board is plywood and the letters are hardwood painted with spray can.

    BTW. for those who dont know about our part of the world, people usually work in the streets here, they just have an umbrella or something to cover from the sun and there they do their trade. being selling oranges, candies or anything that will make them make some money.

    Nayo, that was very nice of you and your Nephew. Making someone happy with our art work and seeing a smile like that is worth more than money..

      A well made gift for someone who needs it is the best as Jose's smile shows. You are special people for doing that.

        Very generous of you. You will repaid many times over, when you least expect it. Nice job on the sign too.

            I agree with Hawaii, that smile is worth it, you can see he really appreciates it. Good stuff

              this is something i would like to do more often, it does not cost too much and the rewards are priceless.

                That's what I was wondering Betty: If these would work (larger) for hair?

                The perfect solution when I need a wider top on my Hegner. A magnetic sheet! I decided not to get the Pegas as the only reason was for the wider top and the top feed blade. After 19 years, my Hegner is still running like new and I couldn’t justify the expense. It was a “want” and not a “need”....

                Good idea Scott. Also, my daughter has long, curly hair. She twists it up and around and sticks a pencil in to hold it. I also stick a dowel in my hair when working and my hair gets in my way and I twist it up. The one in this picture would perfect for thick hair.
