Re: David Smith Sign Artist . short film

Very nicely done there Dave. I really enjoyed that. Tell Danny he did a very good job!

That video just got me energized for the day here. I'm looking at some pieces
here that need to be finished. Going to get things done quickly here today so I can do just that!

Re: Spanjer Wood Letter Catalogs

Good post and info here. The carved "R" looks just like a font I made.
Not ever seeing this before, it makes me wonder about coming up with things alike through the ages.
I'd sure like to see these books.

Re: Glue Chip Cabinet

Chris,

The box will use regular flourecent tubes. Place your piece flat on the top. You can elevate your piece off of the light table glass, maybe 1/4 inch using wood or plex pieces on the corners.

Re: Quills

Doug, The first two (and last two) french master brushes I bought had the same thing happen to them. I used the heat shrink tubing and it's still holding on. Make sure the quill is pressed well against the handle before heating the tube or it gets more wobbly than they already are, with that cheap f...

He never gave me a price, He will be back from work today and I'll try to establish a price as he has no idea.
I would think as Larry said $500. We'll see. I have a feeling He's going to want more though.

Re: Vertical and/or horizontal for glue chip process

Erik, I just let the glue sit and thicken enough to a brushable consistency keeping in mind I did not want it to run, but stay where I put it. When it got too thick to apply I reheated the glue just enough to the consistency I found usable. I tried to maintain an even and correct thickness. Robert, ...

Re: Vertical and/or horizontal for glue chip process

Robert, I've brushed the glue on after letting it thicken a bit with good results. You've got to work fast getting as much glue on before it gets too dry. I was able to get a few letters at a time, then reheating the glue when it got too sticky to brush on. I only reheated the glue enough to get a b...
