Thread: Australian Pine { Name Plates }

  1. #1

    Smile Australian Pine { Name Plates }

    I've made like 22 name plates for Christmas presents this year for some of my cousins and the motorcycle name Plates is for my sept-son and I finally got them all stained , poly-ed and here they are . I made them out of Australian Pine 4"x4" s that I got at work , we get them in wire bonds and there free and I have stocked up on them . I used Steve Good's pattern printer to do the patterns and what a great big help for me . They had told me that the wood is Australian Pine { I just took there word for it } . Now this doesn't cover all my cousins and my wife's cousins but I made other things for the rest of them . I try to pick one certain group of mine or my wife's family each year to make something for them as said this year is the cousins , next year who knows . Tell me what you think ............Marshall

    We are both from Arkansas. I bet we are cousins.

    I really like that. I've been trying to work through my head how to make number sign for my house. I want it to be big and backlit with some solar recharged lights. Doing this kind of scroll sawn plaques looks like just the ticket.

    Thanks for the idea!

    Garry I use the big yellow machine { Dewalt model 788 } and I have worked it hard for over three years now . Wore out a Craftsman 16" scrollsaw , but it took about 8 years to do it . But now I didn't wear the saw out itself just wore out the jaws that holds the blades , still use it for fine detail sanding .......Thanks for such nice comments .........Marshall
