  • Quickwood?

    I have been told by many people over that 'quickwood' is the only way to go for repairing on carvings. Can't find the stuff. Not at my friendly neighborhood Menards or Home Depot. Any suggestions? Thanks -- Pam

      Pamela,
      I know just the stuff you are looking for I aquired some of it just last month. The product is called 'Raycrete' the original multimender. I had a carving that was about four feet tall and had developed a huge crack right through the centre of the eye and forehead and had gone the whole length of the carving. I purchased the two bottles one green and the other red they are sold as a pair for about $24 Canadian so I would guess about $15 US. It is incredible stuff, you mix them both together in equal amounts and then pour it into the crack or hole. It runs into even the smallest crack and then it starts to set up. You can carve it as it dry's and then when it is finally set up you can sand it paint it what ever. You can actually start carving into it in under half and hour of pouring. It is very strong and doesnt shrink. It is the best I have seen and has no harmful vapors. I highly recommend it. You can check it out on line just by typing in the name Raecrete. Good luck let me know if it works for you. Colin

        Pamela,

        You can order it from woodcraft or most stores that handle carving equipment.
        You will see more about how this stuff works on page 2 Shedding Antlers.

            Thanks for the info Denny. When I cut acrylic I always use a skip tooth blade at a slower speed. I just did not realize that the epoxy would cut the same way as acrylic so I followed the materials list in the article.

            OK folks, picture. I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here is one each of my version of the oak and cherry boxes. Note the axle peg holding the top in place but allowing it to move.
