Carved Mirror Frame

Carved Mirror FrameHi:I recently completed a carved mirror frame for my daughter-in-law, which I had been planning to tackle over the last few months. Christmas holidays provided the time and the solitude to work on it.This mirror frame is carved in Cherry wood. I chose to mitre the corners, but also to use Kreg pocket hole screws to fasten the corners snug.The rear of the mirror frame is router to accept 5/16” mirror glass.Canadian maple leaves were the decoration of choice for my DIL, as she and her husband (my son) are a military family, attached to CFB Borden, Ontario, Canada.The finish is clear, so the colour (Canadian spelling :-) you see is the natural wood… no stain.

Super Chopsticks

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Super Chopsticks I love the chopsticks produced from the Marlen Kemmet article in WC magazine June 2013 'Exotic Chopsticks' and decided to give it a go.As simple as you may think they are to build, they can be a time consuming pain for a small project. Since I wanted a rounder chopstick, I tried several methods of tapering and rounding only to end up with sets that didn't always match up. I even tried spinning them in my drill against the belt sander , only to end up with one the thickness of spaghetti!After a set or two I combined the joinery of that article with LJ Tony_912 Chopstick Factory #2. That gave me, in my opinion, the best consistent set of chopsticks. (Now we can finally eat in harmony… Lol)If you wish to give these a try or have some ideas, let me know what you think. Thanks for looking! AJ
