That’s quite unique Herb , nice job. I’m wondering the left over piece could be sliced and used as dividers ?
Rick,you might just have something there. Good idea, I had not thought of that. I will check that out.That’s quite unique Herb , nice job. I’m wondering the left over piece could be sliced and used as dividers ?
It’s quite wide . My concern was they would fall over . Thought a couple of dividers would do the trickRick,you might just have something there. Good idea, I had not thought of that. I will check that out.
No, The bark side I just blew off the loose stuff with compressed air, and sprayed it a couple of times with shellac, then brushed on the thinned poly. The Poly wants to foam up a little when it fills all the nooks and crannies, so after I get done coating I take a small artist brush and pick off the foam so it doesn't dry white. After several coats it starts to shine.I like it, Herb. I have some firewood that I might have to try that with. Did you partially sand the bark?
I have often thought that a person could make a bowl or vase, by putting 2 pieces back to back. and have bark allway around.Fine idea. Dividers would help keep pens and pencils upright. Now, make some pens to go with it. I just looked through my wood stash and could make about 137 of those. Just a guesstimate.
I will try,Bob, to me the fun of it is to see if I can do something different every time. Then try something else the next time. right now I am making a bunch of wooden block planes, I did this several years ago and it was a hoot, they are all gone but one so I am using it for a pattern to make some more, and there is a new design I am going to try too.Herb, Great Job as usual. How long can you keep up the new ideas you show us.
Rick, I went back andtook your advice and added partions inside the pencil holder. Thanks for the suggestion.I hope you have a good Christmas Herb . I’m on call , so it’s going to be a quiet one for me .
I don’t have any kids, so I buy the neighbor kids presents .Macie is the oldest at 5 , and I really want to build her something rather than buy her Barbie dolls .
Was hoping to make her a toy chest next year . With any luck I’ll have the laser engraver back on line , and engrave all her favourite characters on the lid etc
