  • 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.

                Understandable for your baskets Betty, but in my experience 1/4” solid wood for puzzles tends to not hold up very well. Especially the small locks....

Ordered from eBay and should have by Monday. Of course all work on dough boards stopped. $55 is much cheaper than a new planer. Oh well, on to the next...

                My customers won’t buy anything cut from plywood. I’ve spoiled them. I use poplar for all my kid puzzles. With Bruce volunteering at the County Park antique sawmill, I have an endless supply of poplar. My current batch is green and white striped. I make cases for all my puzzles and back them with...

                I have enough of that. I bought 3 sheets of 1/8 and 1/4 a few months back. Bruce was at the sawmill yesterday and the superintendent of the Park told them they were getting over 50 oak trees from various county parks. The trees have sort of bug that is killing them . They will be quarantining them in...
