  • what finish

    Hi. I made a couple of new things today. The heart came out better than I expected. It has not had the finish put on yet.I plan to paint the side red and then spray a lacquer clear finish.It is made from 9mm and 4mm birch ply. The box is the first ever I have made. The box part is made up of two pieces of 18mm MDF and the base is 2.5mm MDF while the lid is 6mm MDF with a 2.5mm piece under the lid that fits inside the bix. I made a hardwood heart to go on the top which is not glued on yet.

    I have been giving some thought as to how I will finish the box, what readily comes to mind is a coat of primer followed by two coats of semi-gloss acrylic paint. If anyone has any other ideas I would be glad to hear them.

    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.

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...

    I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...
