*POOF* Weekend Gone!

Got lots of cutting done, but very little sanding done, so things are sitting around the workshop waiting for sandpaper. Working on Easter items/decorations. Found an egg holder on a 3D printer site, and had to see if it was do-able. It was! Gonna make a few more, I think. I sized them to take XL eggs, and we currently have Jumbo, so they don't fit so well, but-hey. The pattern works and I can make them with one-by's. Most of the Easter decorations I'm making is using up old wood that I won't use for my signs.

I like those too. You're gonna have to color some eggs. :)
Gonna get some plastic eggs and use them for decorations, Paul.

Pretty neat Barb. I haven’t actually seen that done before . You’ve been a busy lady
Thanks, Rick. I also made an amazing discovery Sunday; I found a way to make my transferring of patterns even quicker. I almost had Ken get the camera together and post a new video. I still use my wintergreen oil, but found a quicker way to get the pattern to adhere to the wood with (what seemed like) less work (so it seemed, anyway.)

Those are diabolically cute bunnies.

BTW, I stopped using ordinary sandpaper some time ago. Switched to 3M sanding sheets, which have a flexible translucent backing, not paper, and it sands far faster than anything else I've ever used. And if you twist it a bit, the sawdust falls out, so it lasts forever. I think 3M still makes it, here's a picture. I use it on picture frames and it takes a fraction of the time to finish sand than the paper type. It is expensive compared to plaper, but outlasts and out sands paper.

So what is it?

Those are just too cute, you're outdoing yourself,LOL
Herb
lol Thanks Herb. Just trying to get stock to sell at a table or around the office here. I have an order for one of the bear phone holders, and everyone loved the puppy with his tilted head. (Brought that one to work.

Tried to get out to the shop last night after work, but by the time I got done cooking supper, I was too pooped to pop. Didn't even work on the pieces in the house that need to be stained/colored. Bums me out to have them just sitting there. I hope Ken will sand on the ones that need the edges smoothed today.
