  • Segmentation Pieces for craft show

    These pieces were all cut from a piece of 3/4" MDF that I snagged from the cull bin at Home Depot a while ago. Cost me $ .51 for the MDF.

    The swan, fish and unicorn patterns were from the Spielman segmentation book. The apples were from a pattern by JGR that I reduced to fridge magnet size.

    Way cool........you should get your money back even if you sell only one. Hope you have a good turn out and nice weather.

      Really pretty, Nancy. The colors look so nice and clean--can't imagine that you won't get your money back many times over! They should just fly out of your booth.

          Hi Nancy - your pieces came out really well and it's also good to see you showing that they were made in MDF. You should have no problem selling them.

          As an aside, the Spielman book was the first one I bought before I started scrolling, largely to find out what I was letting myself into. It has some simple but attractive patterns, especially for beginners, and I've made quite a few of them. It's also easy to adapt the segmentation patterns for intarsia work. All in all a greater starter book for this type of work.

            Those are GREAT, Nancy! I've also made the swan and unicorn from MDF and painted them, but unfortunately I'm not nearly as good a painter as you are. I wish. Those are just terrific.

                  THANKS,
                  Glad you all like the "stuff". I was pleased with the end results of my MDF projects; they turned out better than I expected.

                  Now, if the customers like them........I might make a few $ and have room for making more "stuff"! LOL

                    Hi Betty - you surely have one heck of a lot of patience in dealing with Bruce!!!

                    The important thing is that he appears to be heading in the right direction and hopefully it won't be too much longer before you can both put these issues behind you. And once he's recovered with your invaluable...

                    Back 2 steps. He had to have a spot cut off his back for biopsy and the dr. had to go deep, needed stitches inside and outside, so no exercises for 2 weeks until stitches are out. He sure is high maintenance!

                    Beautiful inspiring work Tony!

                    Glad to hear that the Kobalt saw worked out very well.

                    FYI - I took delivery last week of a SKILSAW 8 1/4" blade portable table saw to assist in cutting pieces for segmented bowl work which I was very pleased to find out of the box was set...

                    This is the definition of spalting, Basically it changes the color of parts of the wood as it decays. Turners love it.
