  • Box for Great Grand Daughter

    This is # 12 Box for Grand Kids and Great Grand Kids . Wood Burned and Shaded then used Colored Pencils . You must use Spray for final finish , if you use Brush on you will wipe off the Colors . I use Poly U Spray . The Top is finished but the Bottom must wait till Sept. when she gets here . No name yet . Merle IMG_0011.JPGIMG_0015.JPG

    Another beautiful piece Merle and another good idea to file away. I wouldn't have thought to use pencils to get the colour and spray it to fix it. looks very nice.

    Cheers

      Hi Glenn , I think the Colored Pencils give a Subtle look and are easy to work with . Just keep the Color out of the Burnt Lines . How's that Walking Stick doing ? Looking forward in seeing it . Thanks for your Interest . Merle

        Very nicely done, Merle, and what drives your selection of images to burn? Seems like everyone you do is excellent and a fantastic idea.

          Hi 807 , I first decide who it's for , a Boy or Girl , then I start looking thru my Books for Pictures that I think would be good for a Boy or Girl . This Picture of a Cardinal I got from an Old Calendar that had different Birds . When I see a Picture that I like I File it away for maybe use at a later time . A lot of my Ideas come from Lora Irish and Sue Walters Woodburning Books , they are Great Books . Your gona need to get your Hot Penn out and get back into Woodburning again , it Relaxes me . Thank You for showing your Interest , it is Appreciated . Merle

            I know Sue and she does amazing pyrography, and I'm always in awe. Total excellence. I still dabble a bit in the pyrography but am now focused on carving.

            Sounds like you have a great selection process, Merle...better than mine. I just use the web mostly.

            Thanks.

              Hi Merle
              The stick will be getting a bit done on it in the next 2-3 days. Want to do a dummy run on another project on the lathe before I getinto that 37 piece blanks thaty took a long time to put together. Will only get one shot at it so want to get it right.

              I agree about the subtle look it is entirely suitable to the project. Nice one buddy.

                Hi Glenn , with a Piece as long as the Stick I think you will need a Follow Rest . If you don't know what that is , it is a Fixture that follows along on the Opposite Side of where you are cutting . It stabilizes the Long Piece and keeps it from Flying out of the Lathe and probably right at you . Be careful . Merle

                          Thanks for the heads up on the follow rest Merle. My dad has done a degree in wood turning so I will consult with him on it. Many thanks.

                              Great job, I’m sure your great grand daughter will treasure it and pass it down to her children.
