        Those are really cute. I love the concept of incorporating the hugs and kisses.

          I did use the vinegar & steel wool to ebonize. These were an experiment I'm not sure I will combine again. I ebonized the peruvian walnut first. I finished the aspen with a water based finish. The combination of the 2 caused wood swelling so I had more gaps in the final pieces than I was happy with. I had to get creative gluing them together - in sections with clamps. Still a few more gaps than I'd like to see, but they're small and acceptable. I think next time I will probably use black stain instead - I used the blue for that bluebird project and it worked well. Always good to keep learning I suppose.

                          Really nice Janette. Where in the world do you find all the woods you use? Sorry to say, we do not have any of them here.

                            Really beautiful, Janette! Such a cool idea with the x and o! Have you ever tried India Ink to ebonize? Saw an article in , I think, Wood magazine recently about using it instead of stain.
                            By the way, I'm the guy who suggested to Bruce to come up with the Biker Bear. That will be my first Intarsia project!

                              Love the Biker Bear Paul - he came out adorable. Hoping someone will give him a good home at my woodworking show next month. Haven't tried india ink - I used the stain in a tube for the bluebird - they happened to have the right color. I noticed it also comes in black so may try that one next time. It seems whenever there is something that will soak into the wood a lot like the ebonizing solution or water based finish - the wood swells and the pieces don't fit like I want them to (or did before I put the stuff on)

                                A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

                                Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.

                                The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                                Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...
