Introduction: Carve a Adam's Apple Fridge Magnet
Carve a wooden Adam's apple fridge magnet.
Step 1: What You Will Need.
What you need
soft wood about 2.5 x2 inches for each, Jelutong works well http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jelutong_%28tree%29
A sharp pocket knife or a hobby knife or even a home made knife or chisel
band saw or coping saw
band-aids as needed
Step 2: Step 1
Cut the wood to an apple shape, or copy the one shown.
Also, mark your stem and leaf.
Step 3: Step 2
Make stop cuts. A stop cut is just a cut in the wood to stop your knife/chisel from cutting past your mark
Step 4: Step 3
Slice on a angle to your stop cuts on the leave and stem round them over.
Round the apple over with your knife or chisel , keep your hand out of the way this part is where you will get cut
Step 5: Step 4
I mark what I want off with a crayon , you will cut all the way to center
When you think it is rounded enough stop , I like to leave as little edge as I can on it
Step 6: Step 5
I don't sand these before I paint them just add the paint and leave the knife marks in for a better look
Paint it red then green for the leave and brown for the stem , use a tooth pick to touch up your paint
Step 7: Step 6
Add a magnet to the back. Use a drop of super/hot glue.
Step 8: Finished.
You're done. If for a teacher add her/his name in black ink. Otherwise, just put it on your refrigerator.
Step 9: Afterthoughts.
I shoulda' bought more band-aids.
You need to make it smaller,and carve it on both sides for earrings ,drill the stem and add string or earring clip ,you can add a pin so they can wear it on a shirt
You can carve it on both sides for a neckless.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
