  • If they include it, he's all set! He has a play dough food cart and he always "makes" me delicious "foods". LOL He is transferring to another school next year due to them moving and them have a STEAM program there. Did I mention he sings too?...

    And now we wait

    I must say, SLRA outdid himself this time around. I like the one that has the two yellow boards the best. They are absorbing the mineral oil. Now we just wait. Pictures aren’t that good as I didn’t have much room to take them. Our basement is torn up because they are replacing a gas line and we...

    Conversation between Bruce and Elliott Elliott

    This is for you Carole. We pick up Elliott from school on Friday and bring him here. He wanted a snack and Bruce gave him a piece of cake he had made. Elliott — this cake is moist, the crumbs are perfect texture great. What kind is it PopPop? Bruce - carrot. Elliott - now I see the little pieces of...

    replied to Bruce’s dough board
    It was requested as a dough board and not cutting board. He makes all types of bread everyday. Bruce turned the plugs and put them in today. I think I’ll add a loaf to the price. It’s even nicer Rolf having a drum sander that works properly. Such a time saver. Our architect nephew came over today...

    He worked on one today. Pictures show view from a ladder, both sides. The holes are going to be filled in with cherry dowel on the walnut and walnut on the cherry. Also picture of end piece. Aren’t the cabinets and countertop beautiful the board is on?...

    They are 24”x24” per customer request. He also uses mineral oil and bees wax for a final coat. He gives a container to the customer with all boards. SLRA is really taxing his brain on this one.

    Bruce’s dough board

    After many and I mean many hours, Bruce is almost finished making 2 boards. He glued up 8” sections, then glued them together. That was 5 days for the gluing, scraping, gluing, scraping and final gluing and scraping. Then he sanded, which was easy with our new sander. Then it took him 2 days to decide...

  • I cut some out of scrap wood, but didn't get them put together. Not enough hours in the day in December. It is on my "Christmas to finish list". I also did the small one. I'll put an eye in it incase they want to hang it on a tree.

    replied to Pricing
    I figured the price of each board used and came up with a board ft average price of $8.75, 4 bd ft for the cutting board $35.00 x 4 = $140.00. He cut the boards to size and sanded everything today. It’s going to be a nice looking board when he is done.

    I do the same thing Linda but sometimes...

    Pricing

    Bruce is making a special order dough board, 24x24. I asked him his price and he said $115. My comment, are you nuts? He’s always telling me my prices need to be higher so this surprised me. Woods are cherry, walnut, African mahogany, yellow heart, Purple Heart, birch. The purple and yellow heart...

    replied to orbital sander
    I attach mine also to the vacuum. When the weather is cooperative, about 8 months out f the year, I save all my sanding and do at one time once a week outside. I get fresh air and vitamin D as a side benefit. When Bruce put siding on the house years ago, my brother in law put double outlets on each...

    replied to orbital sander
    I wouldn't be without mine. It is the finishing sanding before finishing. I also use my flap sander with almost every project that I do. Especially puzzles to get the sharpness off the edges. We have alot of rigid tools. If you buy them at Home Depot you can get a lifetime warranty on them. Batteries...

  • I am changing to a Pegas for the wider and longer table so I don't have to do a balancing act with my 16"-18" baskets that I cut. What is the distance from the blade to the front of the table now? I cut the puzzle with the horse, dog, cat and chicken today from earlier this year and my problem...

    replied to Source for 5-Ply poplar plywood?
    Are you using it as a backer or to cut the puzzle from? I’ve found any plywood I got from Lowe’s had a lot of voids. I use poplar for all my puzzles. Well I was going to post a few pictures but the photo library is empty again. Only happens on this site.
