Tipoley Board Game

I've been asked to make several Tripoley boards for a family that enjoys that game. I've never played the game but now I'll have to look into playing Tripoley. Looks interesting.

Re: Cherry wood clock

Painting carved letters can be simplified by first adding a coat of sealer or varnish. This reduces bleeding and also makes it easier to remove any excess paint by either wiping or sanding it off. Thanks for reminding me to state a very important part of the process which I left out of my post. I a...

Re: Cherry wood clock

It's very easy Tex. When painting letters on bare wood I use acrylic paint and actually dab the letters with paint and when dry it can be sanded to remove paint outside the letters. It really makes it easy to paint. After sanding I use a clear spray polyurethane to seal the finish.

Re: Align Object Menu is gone

I've had a UPS backup battery connected to my CNC router from the very first time I turned it on. I got to thinking when I bought the CNC machine what would happen if the power goes out in the middle of a project. Well happy to say the power has never gone out but I like the feeling of knowing I'll ...

Re: VCarve Lettering

I've found acrylics work very well. You can brush on and sand when using unpainted wood. For painted surfaces I use a spar urethane over the painted surface, then after carving, paint with acrylic which paint outside the v carve can be easily wiped off with wet cloth. I usually finish entire project...
