    Red Cedar

    I am looking to make some more of the angels for the NCWW Thank You project. I want to make these out of red cedar. Anyone know where I can get about 10' linear feet of 1 1/2" thick cedar? I live on the NC/VA border so location is important too.

    Still scrolling

    I don't always post pictures of my work though I am in the shop playing probably 250+ days a year. This is something I just did kinda for the fun of it and to say I did it. It is a Steve Good design. What makes this kinda unique is the size. That is a standard size push pin.

    Saw this on the news. Sad when any business closes because people always loose jobs. If you are near one of the stores that is closing you might be able to get some bargains on some supplies like: glue, craft paint, detail brushes, framing and matting material, etc...

    Try this at home if you dare

    Not really wood working. I have seen this done on various scroll saw forums, Facebook and YouTube. It is called coin cutting. It was actually not that hard. It is different then cutting wood in some ways. For example you use CA glue to attach the pattern. I used my Excalibur regular...

    Wine glass rack

    Back in October I asked for help with creating moldings to hold wine glasses. As usual I received lots of ideas and offers. This past week I tackled it. For the specs I used the dimensions from a drawing provided by Ste6168. It turned out to be a lot easier then I thought.

    Anyone spray polyacrylic

    I need to spray a couple boxes and I know lacquer can smell for a while and very dangerous unless done outside. Anyone spray polyacrylic (water based poly) sucessfully? If so did you spray straight from the can or did you mix it with something? Anything else I should be aware of.

    Cutting wine glass molding

    Wife wants to hang some wine glass under a kitchen cabinet. I see Rocker sells precut molding strips but if course they are red oak and I need cherry. Anyone have dimension and angles to make your own? I would prefer to cut in the table saw vs having to buy a special router bit.
