  1. No PM -- going public. You really didn't have to make a big deal out of this. Those guys that bought all the extra raffle tickets and added the match spent more than we did and really stepped it up. And .......... you're ruining my reputation!! If it was a success - that's all that matters. Glad we could contribute something useful for the cause. But Debra wishes you would just call her by name instead of the Mrs thing.
  2. P_Toad always steps up. Good to see he got a little back. Congrats to the rest of you too ----- pecially my lil buddy Artie. Good thing I didn't get the Laguna one, that would have cost me money before it was all over.
  3. Just trying to see what it would look like with the addition. Couldn't just leave it blank. Looks better with a sample of something.
  4. How does something like this look?? Room for a name and another line or two and still focuses on the insignia. Pic was off the computer screen. - not great quality.
  5. I've used Marsh Ink a couple times. Acrylic paint looks a whole lot better. IMO
  6. A lot depends how deep the cuts are too. If you have some shallow cuts, heavy sanding screws it up.
  7. You get a lot of bleeding in the wood (especially pine and spruce) that way and the paint doesn't always sand off clean. I still have to sand but only along the paint lines.
  8. Basically, prototypes David. I usually get asked for something like this a couple of times during a show. Figured I'd take a couple for each branch and see what happens. Working on a blank now that would let me add some text of some kind and "personalize" them too.
  9. I keep hearing that time means nothing when you're retired. Gotta do something while I wait for the "end". lol
  10. Paint brush, acrylic paint, and a little bit of time.
  11. It happens. I got a lot of fire pit fuel to prove it.
  12. Since this is a forum with a heavy emphasis on patriotism I figured we should have something for those who served in the military. These are the first two I tried. Was also thinking of possibly combining something like this with a bottom "tail" that could be carved with someone's name, dates of service, places of service, or anything one would want. These are cut from 15" blanks. Sizes can be increased to 18 or even 24 inch I would think.
  13. That's my boy! Always comes up with something original. Must have a lot of free time up there in God's Country.
  14. I think this is fitting for just about anyone here. Carved from an oddball piece of 16 x 10 cut off aspen.
  15. Dave, $10. They're in the back by the kitchen counter tops. Item # 6440100
  16. Jay Skelton sent me to Menards and said to get some of these. They are corian, quartz, acrylic (?) pieces that measure about 11.5 inches square. Polish festivals are coming up. Can be used as a trivet, display, or cutting board for serving things like cheese or dips or whatever.
