  • Another way to use Toothpicks.

    The Grand Daughter had and Accident with this little Guy and brought it back to it's starting place. He lost his right Ear . Glued it back on and knew it wouldn't hold . After it dried I cut Groove in each Ear deep enough to hold a Toothpick . Glued the Toothpick in then after Dried Sanded it smooth , will paint it and shouldn't be noticed . Thought maybe someone might use this sometime. Merle IMG_0001.JPGIMG_0003.JPG

    Good idea for a splint. I use short lengths of bamboo BBQ skewer rods or dowel pegs in glue-ups.
    Bamboo has very long grass-fiber in it so resists breaking,

    That is one Hello of a finely detailed carivng. Very, very well done and painted.

          Hi Joe , you know that's what I was thinking , Mr. Fix it . Ha,Ha. When it broke I'm sure she thought she knew just where to take it and get Fixed . If I had it and broke the Ear I probably would have cut off the other Ear just to make it even . Ha,Ha. All part of this Great Hobby. Thank Joe. Merle

                      Very nice repair Merle and great carving...plus nice painting. Glad the piece was repaired so well and it certainly is well done.
