  • Rotary Club auction donation

    i was asked to donate to the local rotary club auction, and it was pointed out that “it would be a good way to get my name out there”…so, here’s a lil something that i’m hoping will lead to more business…oh, btw, it’s made from ash, stained & sealed with a natural minwax stain, wiped with natural colored danish oil, and finished off with liquid gold…if i’m doin too much finishing, please let me know?

    Looking good. You are making the kerfs a bit loose you might try a size smaller blade.

        I've always loved those little bunnies, and yours looks very nice.

        Since the one you did is sized for a child, you might consider leaving it natural, or using a totally food safe oil, since those pieces are very likely to be chewed on, and there are issues with toxicity and finishes on toys.

          i hadn’t thought about that miss carole…i will be sure to put in a ‘warnin’ when i do the description note for the auction…thanx for pointin that out

          mr. w-n-t, i had thought about usin an FD-UR #3 blade, but thought since it was a hardwood, i’d had better use the bigger/stronger blade (FD-UR #5)? all i have for now are either the FD-URs or the spirals, and i def remember what you’ve told me (twice), about those spirals….i haven’t had any time to practice cuttin with them

          thanx for the kind words, and advice

            First off how thick is the board you cut?
            When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
            that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
            for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

            I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

            Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

            Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it) make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...

            I would have to agree that I've not personally made many designs from the magazine, as I have progressed to making most of my own designs. However, I do enjoy some of the reviews and other articles---as well as checking out techniques of others. I debated as well, but decided to renew. Now I just...
