  • JGR Oak Leaf Door Topper

    Not one piece of Oak in it -

    Leaves are different shades of Poplar
    Acorns are Western Cedar
    Ribbon is Box Elder
    Frame is White Pine
    Backboard is 1/4" Aspen Ply

    This was a fun one - hardest one so far. At the end of the I'm back to Judy's Studio for the Intermediate1 class. Gotta make my racoon.

          You really did a fine job with this project from wood selection to shaping. You better make sure that the squirrels outside don’t see those acorns, they will try to break in.

            This video was taken where Bruce volunteers at the sawmill. Bruce is the tall one at the back of the saw.

            Cute Pattern.
            I have good success treating the wood with spry shellac before cutting. There will not be a problem painting the pieces with craft paint over the shellac. As previously said, just be sure to keep the paint off of the cut edges. If you want to seal the craft paint, a light spray coat...

I have made puzzels in the past I just wanted to get some fresh ideas on blades and finish. I like the idea of applying shellac first that is if the paint sitll covers...

            No more waiting for weeks to start therapy. The sooner you use the replacement the better. Bruce was doing mild hand exercises the day after his surgery and bending slightly at the elbow. They expected him in pt for at least 6-9 months. He stopped in February and is doing home therapy, like lifting...
