  1. I don't know if this will work for what you are doing. When I scroll saw I cover the wood with blue painters tape. Then I spray glue over the tape. Then I stick my printed pattern to that. After it is cut out the tape and pattern on the project pull off easy.

    Beautiful Gerald.
  3. Gerald I went to your link and looked at the sanding pads. They look good and I will order some. Thanks again for the link.
  4. Maybe that is where I messes up. I did not turn the top at all. I used a piece of 1 x 6 and cut it round on my band saw. I put it on the vacuum chuck and turned it round, rounded over the corner and did the small grove and burn on the side. All I did to the top was sand. Thanks for the advice. I have sand paper that goes to 2,000 and sanding pads the go to 12,000. I will try to sand finer next time.
  5. Thanks everybody for the kind words.
  6. Not sure John. I usually get in a hurry. This time I sanded, and sanded and sanded some more. I sanded to 600 and it felt and looked like glass. I put on one coat of beeswax then one coat of Shellawax friction polish and it looked great. After around 30 minutes it looked like this.
  7. Made a new lidded pot for the wife. Not sure what is going on with the finish. The base is padauk. The lid is lace wood. The finish on the lid was like glass. I put one coat of beeswax and one coat of Shellawax. Now there are spots on the lid that look rough.
  8. My grandfather on my dad's side was a ship builder at one point many years ago.
  9. Very nice Gerald.
  10. With the small hole in the center it looks like it could be a homemade vacuum chuck.
  11. John thanks for the tip. I didn't know there was a link section. I will enjoy checking that out.
  12. Culture shock. I know it well. I moved from SF Bay Area to West Virginia in 1996. No regrets.
  13. I would do it on a lathe. Shouldn't be too had on there.
  14. Wow that is some beautiful wood. Very nice work Kenny.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
