Live Stream and Chat Saturday 5/15/2010 at 9pm Eastern Time. Giveaway Scheduled.

Live Stream Link

It's time for another giveaway. Saturday night at 9pm Eastern time. (5/15/2010). I will start the live stream at 9 and then we can do chat for a while if you want to stick around. The giveaway is for "Creating Wooden Boxes on the Scroll Saw". The deadline for entries will be 12 noon eastern time 5/15/2010. Make sure you get your daily entries in. Please remember to only enter once a day. I am still having to delete multiple entries. When this happens all entries from that day are deleted not just the extra entries. Be careful so you don't get deleted.

If you are new to live streaming consider coming and joining us. It's simple. Just visit the blog and look for the live stream graphic link in the left hand column. Click the graphic and the live stream page will open. If you wish to enter the chat just enter a name in the right hand panel and click connect. The chat allows you to participate in the live stream by reading and asking questions of other viewers and me. The live video will be displayed on the left.

Come and join us. It's fine to just be a spectator or jump and and participate as much as you like. If I get 100 or more viewers in the stream I will do a special giveaway for those logged in to the chat.

Butterfly Box Scroll Saw Pattern

I am still playing around with the polymer clay for an inlay material. This round box has a butterfly pattern that I inlayed with the clay. You can just leave the fretwork open if you don't care for the inlay. I did learn one thing in this test. Don't make a mistake and use transparent yellow. Make sure you use plain yellow. The transparent does not look very good once it's baked.

On this piece the top is 1/4" thick. I did not use a backing board for the clay to sit on. I was testing to see if the clay would stay in the cut outs after is was baked. It seems pretty solidly attached to the cutouts. I would say it passed this test fine.

We are getting close to 3000 entries for the giveaway. I think I'll do the drawing for this months first giveaway Saturday night. 5/15/2010 at 9pm Eastern Time US. I will do a live stream of the giveaway. You do not have to be there to win. Here is a deal for you guys. If we can get over 100 people attend the live stream I'll do a second giveaway just for the people who are logged into the chat. Hope to see you there.
