  • is there a source for hardwood rounds

    Like the basswood rounds only in hardwood?
    I saw some projects I'd like to make out of hardwood rounds.
    I wish I could find an old fallen tree in the woods and get someone to cut me some rounds off of it......
    is it possible to do that and would it be suitable to make projects out of?

    Yes you can cut rounds yourself, but remember that you are dealing with end grain.

      Catlyn, tell me the dimensions that you are looking for.... Are you talking stock like bowl blanks, or more like dowels?

        I believe she is referring to the rounds you can get at some craft stores that are 5-6 inches around and about 1 " thick sometimes with the bark still attached.

        If you have some cut off a branch or a tree you will need to let them cure for about a year and be sure you treat them so they do not check/crack. If the limb is really dry you may not have to cure it for quite as long.

            None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

            What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
            The bags seem easier on the surface.
            But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

            Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

            As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

            I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....
