  • 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 Linda - thanks for the comments on the welds. It took me an hour or so to get into the swing of MIG wire welding but I really like it in preference to stick welding especially for welding thinner material. I confess to investing in a new angle grinder to help with the cleanup and dressing. I bought...

                    Wow! That segmented bowl is amazing!

                    Betty - I have an old Darth Vader helmet somewhere. Will that substitute Bruce's get up? Failing that there always my current biker's helmet Thanks very much for the safety advice and concern. Rest assured that safety is my priority these days....
