    Thanks Derek-- I've been making pens for quite a while now. They are fun & easy to make for the most part. Some inlay kits can be tough.

    Thanks Colin-- I put Gloss Wipe-on Poly on that particular jewelry box. I also forgot to mentio I made the 2 necklace hangers that are on the inside of the tall case & they rotate.

    Just wanted to add that I've been wearing the cloth gloves with the rubber palms. Great grip & help in the splinter department. Plus my hands don't dry out & crack nearly as bad here in the dry cold Winter air of Ohio. I looked around til I found a very soft & pliable pair in the cold. I'll get you the name of them if you're interested.

  • Glen created a new topic ' Dovetail joint question.' in the forum.
    Hello all. I know I haven't been around much lately & I do miss seeing what's happening here. So I just spent the last bit of time catching up here. It's nice seeing what you are all designing & building.

    I do have a question tho. I'm going to be building drawers with 1/2 blind dovetails. How do I get the length of the sides & the front & back so I end up with a,, for example,, 15" wide drawer by 22"deep? I think I need to make the front & backs to length & the sides plus 5/8" for the front dovetail. The backs will be held in place in a dado in the sides & I can figure that out. :laugh:

    Thank You & I have some pics to share when I get some more time!! B) B)

  • Glen replied to the topic 'Best wood for frame?' in the forum.
    Purpleheart is a nice wood for what you want to do but keep in mind the purple is only there while being machined & sanded. Over time it will turn brownish.

    Having said that I've made a few mirrors these last couple years & always use a quarter sawn wood. It is more stable & beautiful. The mirror you're making is a large mirror so you have more room for the frame to move, twist, & even bow. I'm certainly not a wood expert but I do know it moves.

    Here's a 30" X 40" mirror I made last Winter from 1/4 sawn White Oak.

    I hope this helps in some way.

    Thanks SMK. Only joined today, but could have used the drill chart yesterday when making a Sprouting Jar Rack for she who never obeys me.

  • Over the holiday I had a chance to sell my carvings. My show was a great success. This was my 2nd year for this show. All my inventory was sold in about 3 hours. I felt like my pricing was fair to me and my customers. Price ranges from $5 to $75.
