  • wood for segmentation

    I am going to create JGR "elk" for my son-in-law. I plan to create it using "segmentation" technique, cutting it out of one piece of wood , 3/4" thick. I plan to stain with various shades. What wood species would you use for this project? Jim in Bend

    My choice, if I were to do it in segmentation, would be something easy to cut, shape and that takes paint well. I think it would be poplar or aspen, both of which are easily found at both Lowes and Home Depot. Pine can be difficult to cut.

      Thanks Jan but I plan to stain rather than paint. What about white birch? I was reading that is stains well.

        My choices are only suggestions. Get a piece of white birch and test it. If it takes the stain well and is reasonably easy to cut, go for it.

            is doing great in therapy. His range of motion is about 3 weeks ahead of where they expected him to be. He has zero strength in his hand or arm. He tried to grate some cheese, and he couldn’t hold the grater. The doctor had to do repair stitching on the muscle and that will take the longest to heal....

            When we started out, it was 45 deg and rain. When we got there it was 44 deg and rain. By the time we left it stopped raining but was 42 deg. and windy. Luckily we are under cover but that doesn’t stop the wind. I sold 4 baskets, Sealife puzzle and a few other things. I moved the coffee grinders...

            I thought I read you use shrink wrapped bags for your puzzles. Where do you get them from?...
