  • 3 wise men

    I got the set of wise men done for my work Christmas party.

    Woods used were yellowheart, purpleheart, lacewood, padauk, aspen, redheart, yellow birch, cypress, beech, orange parot wood, canary wood, and peruvian walnut. I have 3 more sets I'm working on for Christmas gifts. Thanks for looking.

              Lovely, Cathy. Nice clean lines, well cut and shaped, good colour selection. I don't recognize them. Can you tell me where you got the pattern? Thanks!

                    Thanks for all the nice comments!! I planned on spreading this out a bit, a piece or two a year. However, with my mom's health problems this past year and Kent's mom turning 90 I thought I best not wait! Lou I loved this set when I saw it!! It came from Scroll Saw Woodworking and Crafts Holiday 2005 issue #21, Pages:62-63.

                    Thanks again for the positive comments. It's nice to feel good about something!!!

                          Cathy,
                          It has been so fun to watch your growth as a woodworker and an artist. These are just wonderful! I can't wait to see what comes from your saw next!

                            My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

                            None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                            What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                            The bags seem easier on the surface.
                            But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                            Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                            As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...
