    Not sure this is what they use, but AC Moore and probably Michaels has shrink wrap for gifts.

              Bob Armstrong (host of the parley) uses archival quality shrink wrap from University Products. You have to be careful about what you are using vs how long you plan to keep it wrapped. Shrink wraps are made from petroleum products and can break down and leave oil stains on your puzzles if left too long. For the really cheap stuff that can be as little as 30 days. Bob has been using the archival quality stuff for years now with no issues. I use it as well but I don't often leave anything wrapped for long periods.

                  Mike, how do you seal these bags or do they just conform so tightly that they don't need to be sealed?

                    I use a thermal sealer I purchased on ebay several years ago.

                    Not this particular seller but one almost exactly like this one...I just use a hair dryer to shrink the film..

                        Hope it helps. I've had mine for a couple of years and will need to order some replacement filaments as they corrode and break over time.

                              Cutting a straight line I get it started then plant my thumb at the side of the piece and use that to stabilize the cutting path, a bit like the pin you would use on a bandsaw when resawing old style.

                              We went to Groff & Groff yesterday. Purple Heart wood is stuck on a boat somewhere. They said imported exotic and hardwoods are stuck on boats. So if you see a wood you need, grab it while you can.

                              He has 4 of the long ones, but we have other sizes that he uses for clamping up his cheese board slicers, another good seller. They go for $35, left over wood from dough board. On late shift yesterday because I took a 2 hour nap around 7. Off to the saw! I have 8 days of shows in 2 weekends! And one...

                              What Carole said. The lips are 1 1/2”, holds the board to the counter and keeps the flour from going off the back. After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...
