  1. This thread is classic me LOL (laughing with/at me is encouraged). So the other night after work, I’m sitting in my La-Z-Boy, trying to make it appear I’m still awake. I hear “Honey, can you make me one of these?” I ask, “What is it?” She replies “It’s a quilting clapper.” Silly me, I think that’s what turns on a quilting machine when you clap your hands. So I look at a picture of a block of wood she is showing me, and I’m like yeah, I can make you a block of wood LOL. Apparently you use these to flatten out seams, with an iron (and said block of wood). So I go online and some guy makes them, and shares the plan. hardwood, 2-3 inches wide and thick, 12 inches long. His are 3 inches wide at one end, and 2 inches wide at the other end. No gluing, no finishing. Guess I talked myself into not taking it too seriously, due to its ease of completion. So today I wander over to the closest Woodcraft, and pick up Mrs Ash, 3 x 3 x 36. I get her home and introduce her to Mr chopsaw. Now she has two sisters. I get out me compass and draw a 3 inch half circle on one end, and a 2 inch one on the other end. Find a straight edge, and connect the half circles. Figger I only need to do this once, I’ll use the first one to trace on the other two. Oh yeah, I figgered that since I’m making one, I may as well make three, the Missus, my sister, and another of the Missuss’s friends, who quilts. Well this is the first time I’ve worked with Ash, and the first time I’ve really worked with anything 3 inches thick. Also first time I’ve used the bandsaw on anything thicker than 3/4. I found out that my bandsaw is not square to the table. Since I had talked myself into this being an easy project (Which it certainly should have been, had I taken it seriously enough to make sure everything was square) I traced out the other two blanks, cut them on Mr Bandsaw. Woke up Mr SS Beltsander and spent some time trying to undo the appearances my unsquare bandsaw had produced. First time using the Shopsmith belt sander, I usually can get the job done with the strip sander. Mrs Ash and her sisters then had an appointment with Mr Router Bosch, who gave them a groove down the middle of each side, so the ladies can easily hold them. Tomorrow they have appointments with brother Mr ROS Bosch for a whole lot of sanding. I really wanted these to be 3 identical, perfectly radiused, straight edged, but assumed everything was gonna go smoother than it did. Next time I will take my EASY project more seriously, use a square, and NOT RUSH. This thread is only for entertainment purposes and is not looking to solicit any you’ll do better next time, replies.
  2. Greetings all, I am getting into the barn quilting craze and looking for a source for wood panels to use. The local craft stores are selling unfinished 8'X8" boards for $5.99 and 12"x12" for $9.99. I was thinking about possibly using some veneer but I think 1/2" or 3/4" hardwood instead. I'm not finding much success with coming up with enough pallet wood or scraps from the cut bin at the local wood yards, any suggestions?
