    Hi Joe , they are not allowed to play with them , just put things that they want to keep and not loose . Maybe teach them to take care of something and not to break it . Thanks Joe for your Kind Words . Merle

    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

    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.

    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 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

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