    replied to Gemstones and wood
    I've been using black Onyx beads for bird eyes for a while. You can buy strands of many different sizes (and varieties of semiprecious gemstones) at fairly reasonable prices. I drill a hole around the same size as the bead and fill it with jewelry glue and set the eye in.

    I would...

    Dale, where about in Wisconsin? Maybe my husband found these in your neck of the woods. We live up by the big Lake, but he got a lot of these in the Green Bay area.

    replied to Burls - drying questions


    I imagine you have plenty of room to store them for me, after all I did say I needed them out of my sight (So I could resist the temptation of working with them before they are dried down)

    Funny you should mention ebay. Last month, I was splurging on a few...

    replied to Burls - drying questions
    Thanks for the replies. I'll have to look into the Greenwood sealer and Anchor Sealer. I'm a cheapskate, so that's why I was thinking cheap, old latex.

    They have been cut around 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 thick. It take a few extra passes with the planer to get the chainsaw marks out so I made...

    Burls - drying questions

    I've been fortunate enough to have a husband that's been bringing me home a bunch of different burls (cherry, maple, oak). I do intarsia so the useful sizes for me are around 1 inch thick, so what we've been doing is slicing most of them with the chainsaw ( I do have one large enough for his band mill,...

  • I actually have grown to like the sanding part over time. It's when the true character of the wood starts to pop out.

    I think a big part of it is getting the right tools, equipment and sand paper.
    I have a 1 x 42 inch belt sander for the heavy duty shaping, several random orbit...

    replied to mahogany wood
    The mahogany I mainly work with is from South America (goes under the name Genuine Mahogany) and it is fairly soft.
    I did get a piece of African mahogany a while back and it was definitely harder (more of a brownish red color VS the nice rusty red of the S. American type)

    I've...

  • I hoard every brown paper bag I get. Works great for the final buffing too. I know a cabinet maker who using them all the time and his finish is silky smooth.

    replied to Blade Question
    the down side is diamond blades need to be run with a lubricant of some type, water or special cutting oils, or the diamond coating wears off right away once it gets too hot. Been dreaming of how to make this work for a while since I've been bitten by the lapidary bug last year. Would love to work...

    replied to I've Done It Now
    Way to go! Hopefully you'll find yourself with the so called dreaded problem of keeping your inventory up We don't have any craft malls around here so I've never done them, but I've been in some artist coops and sell through consignment gift stores.

    The invaluable advice I've gotten...

    replied to What type of wood do you like
    Yep, My main work is intarsia. I really don't consider most of the woods I work with exotic, the only two I buy is mahogany and ziricote (use to use wenge). The rest is milled on our sawmill. I guess I think of exotic as from other countries. Most my wood comes from WI, MN and MI, and sometimes...

    replied to What type of wood do you like
    My favorites change from month to month. Lately I've been working with some mesquite lumber which I think is sort of unique. It has some interesting grain character, easy to cut although it is on the heavier side and wow, my garage smells wonderful. Sure can't over look walnut either, very nice to...

    replied to Dewalt788
    My Dewalt lasted me 1 year and 2 weeks, when the motor went and the warranty ran out. Cost around $200 to fix, but the worst part was I waited around a month and a half for it to be fixed Got it back, it ran for another 4-5 months and the speed control went haywire! It is now a expensive coat...

    replied to Pricing your Work
    ALL expenses (health, vehicle, garage and house insurances, food, entertainment, not a big one there, new vehicle, dentists, clothes, all shop expenses, land taxes, etc.) were paid from scrolling untill I got married 2 years ago. If it didn't, there was no one else to pay it.

    I had...

    replied to Pricing your Work
    Wow, I have to take exception to the idea that it's not possible to be a full time scroll saw artist without hiring people (that would be like a painter hiring someone to help them paint pictures!) or wholesaling. I know several people, myself included (8 years full time), that pay all the bills and...
