  • JGR Door Topper

    Here's the beginning of the JGR Oak Leaf Door Topper I'm making for my daughter and her fiance'. Decided Christmas was better than waiting for the wedding in April.

              Thanks. I sure hope it comes out looking good. The woods are: White oak backboard, madrone for the frame. The bow is bloodwood. The leaves and acorns are various shades of western red cedar. The twigs are black walnut. The finish will be Old Masters satin wipe on poly.

                  They will love it! Who made the pattern for this? I googled JGR Oak Leaf Door Topper and all i found was this message board with the pattern.

                    I bought that pattern and the wood a couple of years ago. Still in the round-to-it pile. Really looking forward to see the final product.

                      Very Very nice. I saw that pattern a while ago but never decided on rather to do it or not. Looks like I might be after all. Thanks for sharing it with us.

                        You're welcome, DW.

                        Birchbark: go to Judy Gale Roberts Intarsia. That's Judy Gale's website. You'll find the pattern there.

                            Please keep us posted on how it goes. Looking great! I bought that pattern awhile back but haven't tackled it yet. Maybe after the new year. Your wood choices look spot on!

                                A gift to be cherished, and a reminder that life goes on despite a tragic loss. How lucky the little boy is to have such caring people in his life....

                                Jo, when I got my hegner long ago it had a light with it. In the back of the light was an outlet for the footpedal. I put in a 3 prong plug and plugged in my footpedal and vacuum. Ran great for 15 years. A few years ago the outlet on the lamp died and my footpedal at the same time. I had to replace...

                                Conversation with Bruce. I need some beads for the dream catchers. Bruce - let me go look through my stash. I have what you need. Me - of course you do. When I first started doing shows, Bruce would go and make dreamcatcher earrings and other jewelry. He was quite good at it. Of course he was. He kept...
