I made 6 buffalo nickel piggy banks but substituted the buffalo and Indian head with this one. On one side I replaced OREO with their name. My grandkids loved them. Come February I'll have to make another one. Thanks for the file!
Hi Guy, so pleased to see all the comments and OREO's that have been make. I just finished making 8 different air vent covers for a local contractor. (just the prototypes) but as soon as I had them finished he snatch them up before I could get a photo of them. Guess I will just have to post the simulation's. Looking forward to more posts Buck
Nah, you be the one to try it first Michael. It just seemed like a natural thing. My yoyo is somewhat less rounded than yours and has a flat edge. The Oreo cookie may be better suited to it, but I won't get to it real soon. I'll try though.
I'm swamped with a backlog to finish before driving to West Palm Beach in the next week or so. The wooden canteen and the 24" diameter Ships Wheel clock will be going with me, to be delivered while I'm there. The clock isn't finished yet.
Buck4 was so kind to share his OREO file with me to make a box for my granddaughters. Well, I haven't gotten around to making them one yet, but I did make one to donate to the Beads of Courage project at SWAT this year in Waco, Texas. BOC is a program where woodworkers make boxes for patients that are going through chemo or medical treatments through Saint Jude. They receive a bead after completing each round of treatment and they make bracelets or necklace's out of them. They can store the beads in the boxes until they have enough to make whatever they want with them. The top and bottom of the box I made is walnut and the center is maple, which I turned on the lathe. The finish I used is a paste I made using beeswax and mineral oil.
Thanks again fore sharing your file Buck4, I'm sure some special child will get great pleasure out of the box I made.
