  • 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.

    I had considered useing a hot glue gun but I like to be able to reuse some of the bigger waste pieces. Also when I use brads and they extend through the bottom piece I am always carefull to take a small hammer and tap the points back up flush with the bottom piece so I do not scratch the table.

    I use a pin nailer in the waste areas. The brad and pin nail guns are a wonderful thing.

    Good idea. I’ll have to try that when I get to the point of stack cutting. 👍
