  • 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.

    This market is run a little different than most. All monies collected go back into the market. Each month they put on a different event to draw in people. The budget is usually $600 in the busy months. The pavilion is well maintained with sides that pull down in the colder months. The only time Sunday...

    by cwmagee
    A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

    Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
    That is...

    The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

    Personally I would never sell in a venue that...
