  • 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.

                It is so cute (Christmas deer)

                "It is so cute" - it is the first what I hear when I show this project. I haven’t done 3D patterns for a long time (about a year), it’s quite difficult and takes a long time. But I don’t regret the time I spent on this new pattern - Christmas deer, I think it turned out great. It is...

                I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

                My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

                None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                The bags seem easier on the surface.
                But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.
