  • Blue Heron finally finished

    I finally finished the blue heron designed by Bruce Worthington. The body of the heron was created from some spalted maple harvested from our own trees. The reeds are cherry. The beak, underbelly and legs are "mystery wood" found in my box of wood from Larry the Wood Guy. The swamp water is also "mystery wood" from a local pallet company. The log is a piece of drift wood found on the beach of Lake Erie. I found this pattern to be a real challenge and it makes a spectacular finished project. Thanks Bruce for another great pattern.

                              Very nice Tammy. Gotta love reclaimed and mystery wood !
                              Some of that mystery wood from Larry can be pretty unusual stuff.

                                I don't have much doubt that I asked these questions to Denny in an email back when I got my Pegas saw from him. But none of my saved emails were transferred over from the old computer to this new one.

                                Since what I use mostly is 3/4-inch pine and 1/4 inch multiply which pegas blade would...

                                Hi Jim.

                                The paints I used are mainly aerosol spray.

                                The green is Rus-oleum Painters touch, craft enamel.

                                The red is a stores brand own name, just called Wilko's

                                Don't know if you will get either of these in Mexico, but I'm

                                Great work and patience needed to pull off these smaller toys. You did a fantastic job! I really like them.

                                I'm curious to know what type of paints you use if you don't mind sharing the brand name.

                                Nice precise work Alex, as always from you.

                                I also find Celtic these designs fascinating due to their intricacy and geometrical symmetry but I doubt I have your patience to cut them!

                                Well done!
