I see what you did there... ;-)
that's the way I like to make them!
oh yeah, and these are pretty thin and light, so I don't think there is any need for a finger grip. Save that for the thicker and heavier ones!
Thank-you! Once I give it away, it's up to them what they do with it!

Do I need to know Unix to survive this instructable?(Good thing I do...)
Well I hope *I* win the contest, but if YOU win the contest I guess that's not too terrible...
You could say that about any hobby...
Thank you much for the kind words and the vote!
thank-you... built that about 3-4 years ago and it's a great jig.
rube goldberg here we come... thanks!
Sometimes its more about the building and the gifting than the practicality... :-)

Cool!!! That turned out really nice! Thanks for the photo
possibly. I'm not familiar with art resin.I would recommend just testing it with a scrap of fabric, just like I did
Yeah that's worth a vote...
Thank-you! Pretty exciting, as there are lots of great builds there!
The heat is to pop any bubbles in the finish. Check out other youtube videos of people working with epoxy in a decorative way and they always use heat to ensure a clear finish.
A torch or heat gun is the only method I have ever seen for dealing with bubbles.
Thank-you! I don't really track my time. A couple hours is my guess
I've never tried that, so I don't know. I do know that polyurethane finish does build up after a while, but that would seem like it would take a long time.
Thank-you, it's been a long process of building the collection

Good information, thanks!
I agree now! I was only disappointed for the first day, since then I'm very glad for the amber. I think pale white would be a colder look.
You could, but then you'd need to be very careful with t-shirt placement. As well, with a larger board you don't worry too much about how clean the edges of the epoxy poor look.you could cut the board to size, position and glue the t-shirt, install it in the frame, and THEN do an epoxy pour, which locks it all together. There's usually more than one way to do it, in woodworking.
Almost all epoxy will yellow with age. I have changed my mind (since filming the video) and decided that I like the amber appearance. It adds warm to the pale white shirt.
I agree -- since filming the video I've come to be glad of the look. I think it warms up the pale white.
Me too, thanks!
Yes you can. Here is a slightly more complicated bandsaw jig that Matthias over at woodgears.ca designed, in order to leave a thicker center on the paddle: https://www.woodgears.ca/canoe_paddle/index.html
Try a thin strip of walnut also maybe...
Custom Laminated Canoe PaddleView Instructable »
Like many things in life, there is more than one way to do it. This way I don't need a glass front.
buy a cheap frame at michaels/walmart/hobbylobby and mount it behind there.For me this WAS cheap - I already had the epoxy and it was getting old. I already had the wood, i already had the tools. Cheap is relative !! :-)
Sorry, I have no experience with anything else. Some people in the comments have talked about trying modge podge -- But that isn't that cheap either.
thank-you!If it is out of direct UV, then the yellowing process should be reduced a lot. But remember, I'm just some guy on the internet... you really would need to check with the epoxy manufacturer for a more "accurate" response! :-)
that is a lot of shirts!
All cyclone-type systems work on the same principles -- some form of cyclonic cone or baffle on top that causes the air to swirl around, the dust is heavier and drops out of the air stream and settles into the bottom bucket.So the bottom bucket is there to catch and hold dust, so I do not get how putting a hose to the bottom bucket would help.
Wow. That is beautifully done!
I've played Kuub also! That's a good outdoor summer game as well.
That was a tribute to Jay Bates of "Jays custom creations". He's another youtube woodworker and he's done the "watching glue dry" joke on a number of his videos. Thanks for the comment!
Your set is even easier than mine to build. I almost copied you, but my "client" really wanted round(ish) pins, so I improvised. I'm really glad that I made the carrier, as these are kind of heavy. An old milk crate would also work.

Nope. The video/project was my first (and so far only) experiment with this.I do know that gluing to glass is often very tricky -- very few glues stick to glass. So again, you'd need to research that and experiment. Part of my reason for using epoxy was that I wouldn't need a glass front on the frame.
Thanks! In many ways this was one big experiment. I like the amber affect more and more.
I have no experience with Fabric Fusion, Sorry.The epoxy I used it West System, available from Lee Valley Tools and other retailers: http://www.leevalley.com/en/wood/page.aspx?c=&cat=1,110,42965&p=20016I sure other epoxy would work, just test it, like I did.
West system epoxy.
Really? There are table saw cutoff sleds all over the internet... Never thought mine was that great. We'll see.
Varnish does build up layers, but very slowly. So I think it would take a lot of coats. But I'm really not sure about the "glue" ability of varnish, so I can't say if this would work or not. I'm leaning to "not", though.
Modge Podge, Hmmm. My wife uses that on occasion, never thought about it in this situation.
choosing titles is almost harder than building the project...
thank-you... I've been here for a few months and didn't know that they had an email list!
Grok! That word needs to be used more. (I think I've read virtually everything Heinlein wrote.)
