  • In The Details

    I was working on a puzzle a few years back with a Mayan theme, yesterday I was looking at a photo of it's back when I noticed a detail I thought was worth sharing. When cutting a whimsey with hair like or really thin protrusions, we just simply cut those protrusions off, but sometimes those hair like details define what the whimsey is.
    In the bottom right hand side of the picture there is a snake (not a worm) because of that detail of the tongue. You can add cut lines to adjoining pieces to make those fine details and when the puzzle is put together your whimsey will make perfect sense. Also this puzzle had a fantastic double "S" border.

        Hey Paul, I make my dowels using my Lie-Nielsen dowel plate. It will let you make exact diameter size dowels in 1/8", 3/16", 1/4", 5/16", 3/8", 1/2" & 5/8". Also available in metric. It's just a steal plate with holes drilled in it. Simple system, exact size dowels...

        Good to see that.
        My mind is obsessed with a level table and a tilting arm. I got used to using what is sometimes called a ship saw band saw some years ago. A ship band saw cuts the keels at an angle by tilting the blade and not the table. Sears made a 12 inches that I used for many years, but...

        A very nice assortment! I personally like to see eyes. I use a push pin after touching a black marker.

        Just finished my mini-bird houses
        I just finished a selection of mini bird houses. The dark wood is redwood. I sorted thru 2x2 pieces at the lumber yard and found a section that looked quarter sawn.
        The light wood is cedar. The birds are yellowheart, lacewood, basswood, and the red is paduak (I think). I found the red in a "scraps...
