The next drawing for the one year subscription of the Scroll Saw Woodworking and Crafts magazine will be Friday 4/30/2010 at 10pm. I will be doing a live stream of the giveaway. You do not have to be on the stream to win. Hope to see some of you there. We will do the giveaway and then open it up to chat.
If any of you would like to email me a question for the live stream send it tomorrow or Friday with the subject "Stream Question". I'll read it on the stream and we can discuss the question with the chat room. Any questions you have about blades, saws, wood, or anything else that comes to mind.
Make sure you get your entries in before 6pm 4/30/10. The entries will be locked at that time.

Here is a hand mirror for the men. The pattern needs a 4" round mirror. Woodcraft part number 17T02. The mirror is inset into the mirror by cutting the circle at a bevel. Set the table of your saw at about 4 degrees and make test cuts until you get about a 1/8" reveal. After you cut the circle set the saw back to 90 degrees and finish all other cuts.
You will also need 1 pack of FIMO polymer clay for the inlay. Over fill the cutout of the dragon with the polymer clay. Put the hand mirror in an oven preheated to 265 degrees for 30 minutes. Don't let it burn. It stinks if you do. Remove the mirror and let it cool.
Use a sander to sand the polymer clay flush with the wood. Sand down to 320 grit to get a smooth finish on the clay and wood. Glue the bevel cut into the mirror frame then use epoxy to set the mirror into the cutout.
Complete with your choice of finish.
The mirror can be easily customized with your choice of cutout and color of clay.
