  • Mom ..... Last pix I promise

    I really liked Al's pattern. These are three versions but it's one of those that will lend itself to any number of projects.
    I used 1/2" poplar for the text on all three.
    Two of the bases are 3'4" pine with table saw slots front and rear. One I left open, one I inlayed a strip of butternut and the third is oak with red cedar in the slots and red ceder knots as end caps. The butterflies are an assortment of woods from Larry. The ones that are backed I used 1/32 BB colors with acrylic paint and or highlighters (markers).
    The black markings on one butterfly I branded with a course deck screw heated with a torch.
    Finished with 2 coats of shellac and 3 of clear acrylic sanded to 400 before the last coat.

    Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

    Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
