I did a project for our daughter Hannah - a couple of frames for some old timey cross stitches she has. One is made of red oak, the other soft maple. Some scrap purpleheart was used for miter splines. Finished with Tried and True Original (polymerized linseed oil and beeswax).
A special feature of the church lectern is the Scripture verse engraving I will be placing on the top of the congregation-facing front side. I've chosen an excerpt from John 17:17, in which Jesus, while praying to His Father, makes a succinct but profound statement about God's word.
Not being a carver myself, I did some recon in the local area, and found out about another woodworker, Jamie Szulkowski, who lives in Stuarts Draft and owns a CNC. I reached out to him, and he agreed to carve the verse into the board for me. So I went to Jamie's house last evening, and he got his CNC all set up and running, and he did a great job doing the engraving. I think it looks really nice.
I appreciated his attention to detail, being willing to work with me to get the size and font bolded just right, and being enjoyable to work with. 😊
Btw, if anyone is interested in checking out his work, here is his contact info: Jamie Szulkowski, Wild Country Designs https://facebook.com/wildcountry email@example.com 540-255-1474
Did a repair job for a church friend whose cabinet fell and broke in a few places. Nothing that a bunch of glue, clamps, sanding, and the Lord's grace can't solve! (Our friend will be doing the re-painting.)
