  • Ferris Wheel

    Not so much for bragging, but to see if I can get the hang of re-sizing my photos to fit the restraints of this site. Although, the Ferris Wheel did take most of the winter to finish.

    Well done, Buzz. You've mastered re-sizing photographs and attaching them to your posts and you've shown us a very impressive project into the bargain .

    I wouldn't have the patience to cut something as spectacular as that.

                      Thanks to all for your kind comments and yes, the wheel is powered. The alignment during construction is extremely important as it doesn't take much misalignment to lock up the bushings. It turns about 3 RPM. I have other projects I'll post because I am impressed with the design and think they are very impressive.

                        Painting

                        Jediscroller: Painting projects isn't too bad a job. I am also into model making and own several air brushes. These make the painting a lot easier and gives a much better job than brushes and spray cans. You have more detail control with air brushes.

                                I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

                                If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

                                The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

                                I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
