  • Thanks Toni

    Thanks for giving me the courage to attempt segmentation.I usually do fretwork.I was so inspired by Hecam that I had to try this pattern for myself.I hope I did your pattern justice.The sand shading effect is so cool.This pattern and technique was so much fun. Of course the kids thought I was crazy trying to fry sand. But they loved the outcome.I will definetly be trying both again.I never would have thought of it. I hope I was able to upload the pics. Thanks again

    Derek, this came out looking great! I'm going to have to give it a try myself.

      Ah shucks....

      Thanks Derek!

      You did a great job on Hecam!

      Sue and I are pleased you tried the sand shading technique too! We had fun with this project and Hecam is an adorable personality... we love seeing what others do with him.

      You made us both smile with your comment on segmentation. I do enjoy hearing from folks who try it and are so encouraged to try another.

      As for frying sand - ah yes, the first time I did this the kids came in the kitchen and looked over my shoulder " I an NOT eatting THAT" lol. So much for my baking that day. Giggle

      Be proud of your Hecam... we are. I'll be adding him to the gallery when I update this week!

      Take care

        Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
        That is...

        The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

        Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

        Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

        Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.
