  • Grampa 2011's Gun Dog

    I was finally able to finish Grampa 2011's Gun Dog. I started this and then some things came up and I was away from the saw. I enlarged the pattern so I could see some of the cutouts and because I don't have any small drill bits that would have been needed to do the smaller pattern. The wood was not my first choice but it was all that I had on hand. It is oak veneer. I did stack cut two of them. As you can see in the first photo I chipped the one that was on top. If I had been thinking I would've taped them together with the veneer facing each other. I apologize for the pictures my son is trying to learn how to take photos.

    Anway, thank you Grampa 2011 for an excellent pattern.

    Very nice cutting in spite of the chipout. Since I usually mount my pictures on a backer, I glue the chipped piece back in place and no one is usually the wiser.

    As to the wire drill bits; try Mike's Workshop, Sloan's or a good hardware store if there is one near you. They are not expensive and in a drill press, last a long time. The only difficulty in using them is that you need a small chuck to hold them securely.

    A day without sawdust is a day without sunshine.

      I've been using the bags from Amazon and a heat gun my wife bought when she was a preschool teacher. Unless you are wrapping of small parts, you don't need a sealer. Just fold it over and hold it with a small piece of scotch tape on the back. After you shrink it it's sealed enough to keep everything...

      My process is a bit different. Since I am using heat shrink bags when you seal the open end you trap a lot of air in them. When you start to heat the bag to shrink it you create a large bubble. I continue to heat the bag until it does pop a hole. I have been doing this for years. The shrink wrap...

      None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

      What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
      The bags seem easier on the surface.
      But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

      Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.
