Two sided bookmark

Two sided bookmarkI wanted to try a two sided bookmark. Here's what I came up with. It was a bit of a challenge to figure out how the octopus arms would look from the back.
I made the starfish by first cutting in the white piece. Then I carefully cut in the purple leaving a thin white line around the edge. Then I dipped a toothpick in white acrylic paint and added the dots you seen in the finished bookmarkGeorge

TractorJust completed this tractor like most of the models I make it does involve some turning and as it takes a little time I am not filling the house with bowls and other turning.

Mirror "frames" (not really...)

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Mirror "frames" (not really...)For some reason we decided to redo a couple bathrooms this summer. We had large mirrors in each. Decided to try to salvage the mirrors but wanted them to look a bit more finished. My husband asked if I could make frames but I didn't see how to do a true frame and still use the hooks that were use previously to hold the mirrors to the wall. Decided to attach the wood directly to the mirrors rather than having the mirrors held within a frame. Used Gorilla adhesive to attach. We were able to use the same clips that hold the mirror in place I just had to router a spot for those. Had to attach the bottom board for each once it was in place as the mirrors had to be tilted to get in place. One was painted poplar (first two pictures) and the other was oak with General Finishes onyx water-based stain along with GF High Performance (like how the grain shows). Not super high level woodworking but one does have nice miters and did a extra thick side to give the illusion of a frame for the first one where the side is visible. Anyway saved some $$$$ by reusing.
