  • Build up is building up

    No finish on it yet.
    The angel is ceder with cherry stain and natural the rest is butternut stained English chestnut and the hanger is pine.
    Got backers on a couple pieces and several six piece stacks of 1/8" BB set up for ornaments and bookmarks and a couple 10MM 12x12" butternut blanks glued and in clamps. Now it's beer :30

        Oily, question for you (and others) why do you use cedar and than stain it to look like cherry and stain butternut to look like chestnut? I am so new to woodworking I am still wet behind the ears. People say ask to find out things so here I go. Hope to not step on any toes, just trying to learn. Thanks

          On this piece i just wanted a variant of colors from darker to lighter.
          Staining just seems to make the grain patterns pop.

                Hi ibber - LOL!

                I took the keyboard back to the store a while back and they hadn't got a replacement in stock. Since I like the look o it I think I am going to play attack it later this evening and try to sort out the problem.

                I think it might be a letter that one would need to use the left index finger. Perhaps you need a heavier hammer.

                I did a...

                Jim I bought a mig welder the last time I did a frame off restoration on my TVR. I had a few frame cracks. I bought one that used shielding gas. I never really mastered the power vs feed vs moving the torch. Using it only a couple of times a year did not help.
                My dream was to buy a TIG so that...
