  • 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.

          I often resize just to fit the size of the wood I have on hand. I agree this is a no win situation because of the various software, hardware differences plus the skill level of us, the end users. Even providing the patterns in a digitized format will no fix this because of the reasons I already mentioned....

          John your original post is a valid question. It is a simple thing to put in the original scale assuming that it was on the original drawing. As a minimum the size of the material required can be stated, although that has been a confusion for folks that have built the clock projects. I field a lot of...

          Maybe nothing has changed ? But is there anything that can be done to make it easier. The very large projects are difficult to copy over several pages and put together properly. I believe in making improvements and not preserving the status quo.

          I enjoy the challenge of cutting a project...

          This is not a problem with the magazine for my issue.. It is a problem with the book having resized the drawings without giving the actual size.

          I do again apologize for my post.. I cannot use the right words to explain it.. so maybe someone should just remove the post....

          Reading these replies, I am still trying to figure out what the problem really is. I haven't noticed changes in how they publish recently and I don't think I ever had trouble making copies of of the patterns I want to cut.

          How did you copy the patterns 10 years ago? What has changed?...
