  • Mother's Day Fishy

    Mother's Day is creeping around the corner real soon, so I figure I best be prepared early. I whipped up this little Boxfish with some coral...just 32 pieces, a 6 hr project. My mother lives in canada, so I always have to be 2 extra weeks ahead of the game for shipping.
    The box fish is just lacewood, with some canary wood with bloodwood coral, and the other little fish is satinwood with paela. It's not very big or complicated, but it's the thought that counts!

    That is a really nice piece! You did a beautiful job on it too. I never get gifts done on time. My mom is in Canada too, luckily my mother in law is coming down in a few weeks for a visit. I'm sure she'll pick out something she HAS to have!

      Wow I'm glad you posted that, Jeff.

      Other than the fact that it's beautiful work as always - you just reminded me that I have to get something to my mum for Mother's Day - which is much earlier in the UK - 18th March this year! Yikes!

          Good job Jeff. I marvel at folks who can "whip" something up.

            "6 HOURS!" that would probably take me 6 days/weeks. It's a wonderful gift for your Mother Jeff, well done.

              Wonderful is a good adjective for this one. It'll be treasured ... and not 'cause it's your ma. LOL I know I'd love to see it on my wall.

                At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

                The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

                Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
