  • been a while

    it's been a while since i have posted anything. so I figured I would show you the prototype of what I am working on.

    in the pictures are the first ones that I made. they hold a candle glass for a votive.

    however my new design you can accually switch out the front. so you can have some thing for different seasons.

    Nice work! I really like the leaf. I am not sure I like looking at the end grain of the side pieces it detracts from the beautiful details of the uprights. If I may suggest cutting a slot in the base that will fit the upright piece with a router. That will eliminate the side rails.

      Ty yes I had that thought also ROLF. However I don't have a router. I would also do it with a table saw but I don't have one of those either

        Great designs and cut very well! IMHO, I agree with Rolf, about the end grain. Is it possible to use a thicker stock for the bottom and then cut a slot in it with your scrollsaw and use a 'tab' on the front panel so that it sits in the slot...hope that makes sense.

          Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

          Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

          Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
