  • My latest project

    Here is a pic of my latest project, a coat rack for my pastor's office. I used walnut, mahagony and aspen. Finished with Deft spray. One coat of sealer, then several coats of satin followed by a coat of semi-gloss.

      Very nicely done, Chris. Look great -especially that dove. So is the dove segmented, or intarsia?

                Chris,

                You know Chris, I'm a preacher also in need of a coat rack for my office. Got any left?

                That is a beautiful piece, a treasure he'll have forever.

                      Thanks for all the compliments guys!

                      It was a fun project to do and I have several more designs in mind with different types of woods.

                      As to whether the dove is segmented or intarsia, I guess the areas where the grain runs the same direction and I cut one block and then cut that into pieces would be segmented and the areas where the grain runs different directions would be intarsia. I don't usually think of my project as divided into areas though, the project as a whole would be intarsia because different grain directions, especially cut from different woods, constitutes intarsia, at least according to my understanding. Maybe the dove has a split personality.

                      Thanks again everyone!

                                I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

                                Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

                                We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
