  • Fruity magnets for retirement gift

    One more thing to post today. We are having a retirement party for a lady in our office tomorrow. She has commented several times on my fruity magnets so I made a set for her. And I made the whole set this time!! The grapes were not easy!! Pattern from our Henriette made about 1/2 the original size.


    Grapes: purple heart and poplar
    Pear: tigrillo, poplar and peruvian walnut
    Apple: redheart, poplar and peruvian walnut
    Banana: yellowheart and peruvian walnut

    It was a productive couple of weeks for me!! Thanks for looking!

    If there is one thing I can make perfect every time it is sawdust.

          Love the colors, Cathy. It's a lovely and thoughtful gift. Come to think of it, I retired a few years ago . . .

            The plans for the fruit magnets are available from Henriette Corbeil. She has a website that she uses for selling patterns and finished intarsia pieces.

              Very nicely done. The selection of wood is great.

                        Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...

                        Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

                        Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
