Smallpatch posted a topic in Finishing TipsStill not there yet. I put the colors on while the football game was going at noon today. I mix my colors as I go. Gotta darken moms blouse for it is too close to the same as the blanket !
Nothing unusual about us for nothing is completed when promised.. So we both worked in our shops for our 57th year together...I guess it keeps us out of the beer joints!!! Well at least I run out of used pine I had saved from tearing down the big bird house and switched over to maple for the stands of the many many Nativity scenes she is still making . At least the maple only takes a couple of coats of finish where the pine took buckets of paint before it started building up enough to stop and do something else... Still fighting my new dentures. I had my teeth pulled and dentures installed all in one day about 54 or or more years ago. That was not a recorded venture so trying to put two and two together for a time and since my one ones were wore out some 20 years ago I sure been dreading fighting a new set.........I was watching an elderly lady sky diving on tv and her top plate fell out of her mouth and just thought to myself she will have much more pain fighting the new set than if her chute don't open ...

Its hard to stay up with her when she is feeling good.! 60-40 solder when we moved here in 99 was 3.95 each if you bought 12 rolls at a time. Now its 18.95 but don't think she has gone up in her charges near that much. I'm using used 2x4"s for the bases that came from my cocatiel bird house. This one is going to Houston.
Can't say I'm half way through but at least I'm started on her stained glass Nativity Scenes. A little brighter color with clear lacquer. Each stand has a different width groove plus gluing in a plug on each end so the pine, yuck, don't close up as the seasons and humidity changes. Time it takes to do 130 or so boards is about 15 minutes total time for all pieces....so Howdy Duty will have to wait..
I had something like this in mind when I bought the eggbot. It will draw pretty much anything you can imagine. Downloaded these images, manipulated them to work and drew them on a maple egg. The egg is hollowed to about 1/16" for piercing. Used the eggbot to draw the outlines and then stippled them. The piercing is a random pattern. It's my intention to darkly stipple the areas not penetrated and then to turn a holly base for the whole thing. I think it will be really pretty when done. Steve
Who We Are
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!
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.
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.
