  • Fridge magnet display stand

    I was hoping to have it finished today but oh well.
    Someday I'll have an idea make a pattern, cut and finish a project without changing my mind five times before I can get it done. This isn't the one. This Will give you an idea what it will look like.
    Hopefully I'm past the point I can change my mind many more times. It will hang or stand alone.
    The sheet metal is a piece of scrap I had hanging around the shop. Should I polish some more and leave it shiny or color it. What color?
    The skeeter is cut in red oak and the frame is birch and backed with 1/8 BB. I have no idea what it's for.

    I'd say the sheet metal looks fine the way it is... and those are pretty nice magnets.

        For my fridge magnet display, I painted an old cookie sheet and hubby made me a slotted base that the edge of the sheet slides into. There is a brace in the back to hold the sheet secure, with a small velcro pad.

        I painted it a medium green, to show off the intarsia magnets. I've reconsidered the color, since fridges are mostly still white or off-white. I'm going to repaint it an off-white to give the customers an idea of what my magnets will look like on their fridge.

        Your sheet metal looks really good in the wood frame. You might do a test by laying different colors of paper on the metal and then attaching the magnets to give you an idea how the display would look if you painted it.

        Your magnets are cool!

            Rob, you might not have to do anything more than distress the edges of the dog to bring him out some..
            But Wow...!!!
            Pretty awesome...
            Especially like what it's for..

              The start of the stand for the stand. There will be a box in between for inventory storage or whatever.

              The vase panels will be a six sided candle lantern I think.

                  A word to the wise.. Be careful about how you store inventory when it comes to magnets. The new magnets can leave marks on the front surface of your pieces. It's nearly impossible to remove short of sanding....

                    Jim, I finish almost everything with at least 2-3 coats of krylon acrylic.
                    I like the look and it makes them almost bullet proof.
                    I once had a gust of wind clear a table ans one piece actually slid 15 ft on asphalt. A light wipe down with 400 and a quick squirt and you couldn't tell. I love that stuff. I've finished pieces at 30 F in the shop. In fact I prefer it when the temp is between 40 & 50 F. Slows it down giving it more time to self level. When 60 F and above it's a minute or less between coats. And compared to other shake and shoot products it's cheap. You can get In clear, satin and any color you can imagine.

                        Some of the older books were that way too. It's unfortunate that the printers don't take into account what those pages are for! So sorry to hear of your disappointment. However, I will have to check out that book---I didn't even know there was a circular scroll saw designs book. Share some of...

                        Many patters in it I like and I'm sure I will make several BUT Fox Chapel's printing of this book absolutely SUCKS. Most of the patterns are printed so near into the binding that it is impossible to either scan to .PDF or use a copy machine. I will have to cut out each pattern separately or cut off...

                        Great Question.. I have all the past issues.. I doubt that I find one pattern a year that is worth the subscription cost. I have cut for the magazine and made a few buck that covers my costs,, But I owe that to Bob Duncan.. I think the new admins try but are not involved in this group like bob was.....
