  • 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.

The old download...

    New turning tools

    I just picked up a couple of new heavy handled bowl gauges. 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch from two friends that have tool supply businesses.
    Our next Scroll saw club challenge will be segmented scroll saw bowls. I don't sand my bowls, too time consuming, so I will be turning them after glue up.

    One problem with upgrading was that many of the programs I use are now subscription based. That really frosts my butt I finally accepted the fact that I normally renew my software frequently anyway the cost difference is negligible.

    I did not go with a solid state drive, probably...

    Actually, I think mine is more than 10 years old. And what brand would that be? Remember who you’re talking to here about computers.

    If you buy a new computer you want to get a solid state hard drive. No moving parts to break or wear out....
