  • Christmas wreath from Steve Good pattern

    When I saw this pattern, my thoughts were "how would this look in color?"

    I enlarged the pattern to about 10 1/2 Diameter. I then drilled out the holes for the holly berries with a 1/2" forstner bit. I next made the inside cuts, placed the cut piece on a backerboard and marked the inside of the holly and berries on the backer board with a pencil. I painted them with acrylic and masked them off and spray painted the red center. I glued them together, touched up the paint and cut the perimeter.

          I agree, the color really makes the project pop.

            The paint takes it to another level. Great Job.

              I'm sure that was time consuming, but well worth the effort.

                I gave this a like, but have to express how good the color makes it look. You probably should e-mail a photo to Steve. I'm sure he would appreciate it. Seems he gets great joy out of interpretations of his patterns.

                  Thank you to all of you for your kind comments. I probably have around 14-15 hours in this. I ended up having to do three coats of the red and green border colors to get the intensity I wanted. Also, I measured it again and it is more like 14" in Diam.

                  I did send a copy to Steve and he also thought the colors made design pop.

                    by Don in Brooklin On
                    I use wipe on poly quite often and I apply 2 thin coats before sanding with 220 or 320. I wipe with a lint free. Someone told me not to use tack cloth as you can leave behind a wee bit of beeswax witch could cause issues later on.

                    I make sure that the surface is dry and not tacky before...

                    by dwssr2
                    Question, when sanding polyurethane in between coats, using a tack cloth, is it ok to wipe on poly while the project seems tacky or should a person wait a few hours to let it dry?
                    How necessary is it to sand between coats of polyurethane? I am sure people have a lot of different opinions and...

                    Don’t forget to carry insurance if you sell a lot. It’s a necessary expense and a good "silent" partner and hope it stays that way.
