  • Floating Floor Style Material

    Hey All,

    I had a friend give me a couple box's of leftover flooring. I had enough to do our bathroom floor... and not much else. So with the leftover, I tried scrolling. Sad to say, I don't think it is good for scrolling. I wend through 5 blades just to cut the picture (attached). Also, the edges of the topflooring laminate chipped out a bit.

    Might be good for something larger... like a magazine rack... and maybe a scrolled name on it. But I think this material is a bust for scrolling...

      yea, it's basically cardboard with a plastic photo glued on top. I wouldn't scroll it, but I do have a few pieces in my shop. I'm made drawer bottoms with it. I also find it works great for glueing stuff on. Wipe it down with some johson's paste wax to help prevent glue from sticking to the surface.

        I made the first wolf for my grandson’s birthday. I have made 5 more and sold them all! Personally, I hope to never see another kayak again!...

        Update: I just realized I never posted any pictures of the finished fourth ship. I finished it about 6 weeks ago and have since tried a series of different techniques with some other illustrations from the same book. I'll post about that in a different thread. In the meantime, here is the last of my...

        I was shocked, yet most appreciative, of the surprise I found in the mail today. I am truly thankful for the friends I have made on the board.
        We are a small group, but I feel we all would jump in a second to come to the aid of each other. This is my electronic family.
