  • 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.

            The fees here in Lubbock Texas are $45 per year plus $15 per 10' x 10' space each Saturday that I show up. . Crafters are limited to number and type (to avoid duplication, competition) Any kind of set up allowed, meaning, tent or truck or trailer. No insurance requirements, just a sellers permit from...

            Using Corel Draw a 10 inch round acrylic jigsaw puzzle was created. It was the cut on an Epilog Laser. Two passes were used to cut thru 1/4 acrylic so as not to melt the plastic. Only one person has put it together so far. It is about 475 pieces. But would really like to try and cut one by...

            As far as the Incra miter gauge, if you keep it 1/4 inch away you will be fine, but you will have to adjust it when doing angle cuts, it’s a great miter gauge, RJ...

            Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
            I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
            For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

            The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...

            Truly a nice display. I'm happy for you! Our nearest 2 farmers markets are still food items only as county and city covid rules are still being applied. Our best nearby one is on county parks department property and they haven't lifted essential business and crowd restrictions yet. But the food...
