  • Name Plate

    Made this for my son, who got promoted into a management position - complete with a real office that has a door. So I decided to make him a name plate. Used MS Word with TEAM SPIRIT truetype font. You can download it for free. You have to fool around with it a little since it has an annoying underline that gets in the way a little. So play with the kerning and spacing to get the capitals and lower case to line up. But it is a real nice script to cut. The name is walnut that I harvested and dried in my basement. The back is sassafras. Finished with BLO and some wax. Turned out pretty nice.

      Good job. I do a few nameplates and I've used Teamspirit a few times too, but I thank you for yet another take on the theme.

      I hope he knows he has a great dad.

                Understandable for your baskets Betty, but in my experience 1/4” solid wood for puzzles tends to not hold up very well. Especially the small locks....

                Should read planer Died yesterday. But Bruce got out his instruction book and google and got it apart. Needs new belt, plastic cover and pulley gear. Ordered from eBay and should have by Monday. Of course all work on dough boards stopped. $55 is much cheaper than a new planer. Oh well, on to the next...

                My customers won’t buy anything cut from plywood. I’ve spoiled them. I use poplar for all my kid puzzles. With Bruce volunteering at the County Park antique sawmill, I have an endless supply of poplar. My current batch is green and white striped. I make cases for all my puzzles and back them with...

                I have enough of that. I bought 3 sheets of 1/8 and 1/4 a few months back. Bruce was at the sawmill yesterday and the superintendent of the Park told them they were getting over 50 oak trees from various county parks. The trees have sort of bug that is killing them . They will be quarantining them in...
