  • Exterior Finish on Woodspirits?

    Members, what exterior finish do you recommend to put on 'woodspirits' that are going to be placed outside to offer the best protection? Thanks, Bill in NY 'coffeeman'

      Captain, thanks for the advise, I was concerned about the sun & rain, had never given a thought about the roaches, so thank you and I'll get exactly what you recommended. Bill in NY 'coffeeman'

        Hi Coffeeman,
        I carve only woodspirits and 95% of my carvings stay outside. I use Sikkens woodstain I find it the best and lasts 4 times as long you pay a little more for it but I find it is worth it.

          Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

          Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

          Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....

          I am sure you know how important and relevant that comment is Rolf! I have seen a number of scroll sawn projects over the years at garage sales, thrift stores, etc. I know whoever made them put in a lot of...

          Thanks Betty for asking. Staples came out today. There are some internal stiches that will dissolve over time. Jane is still doing PT twice a week. The only normal activity, whatever she can tolerate, but she is not allowed to swim due to the risk of infection. She will still have to keep icing...
