  • Finally had a chance to play a bit

    I finally had a chance to play a bit in the shop. The six flowers will be donated to nursing homes for Mothers day. Our club has been doing this for a few years now. These are made from some of the flooring I ripped up. Fun to make simple doodles and painting.
    The cross is for my grand nephews Communion. Curly maple, with red heart inlay, a bit of yellow heart and walnut for more pop. Ten inches tall, Bartleys Gel varnish wipe on finish.

          I agree, nice work Rolf. I am sure there will be lots of happy people when they receive your projects. Thanks for sharing. Great use of the old flooring.

                    Nicely done Rolf. I am sure the flowers will be well received. The cross for your grand nephew is very nice indeed. Thank you for showing us.

                      I'm pretty sure the blade was in right. It was an 1 3/4 piece of poplar. Once I was done cutting I couldn't even get the piece to come apart out of the block. Which as I remember it, indicates to much pushing and making the blade bend.

                      For what it's worth I cut an ornament out of pine and...

                      My wife got the vaccine shot in 2011 and 4 months later came down with shingles. It wasn't a light case either.

                      My aunt said she found a cure for shingles: She heard that rubbing Dr. Tichenors antiseptic on it would stop it. She got in the tub and poured some on. As she tells it: "When...

                      I also cannot perceive making that many of anything. I just finished about 30 of the mini birdhouses and am ready to start something new.

                      I also have used the alcohol and shellac method. It really speeds up the finishing process. If the surface is left a little rough, a little touch up...

                      I had trouble cutting once with a new blade and then discovered I had it backwards.
