    So many great pics here!  I love the contrasts on that kingwood token shield.

     

    I just came back from Origins with a lovely little pile of 4 card stands from DMG's $5 shelf!  I'm looking forward to using them when I get my Betrayal at House on the Hill Legacy game going.

    The bolivian rosewood on the bottom is one I ordered a few months back, and the new bubinga one matches it perfectly, but the others are all slightly different shapes and sizes.  It's pretty cool - I guess card stands are a good teaching tool for apprentices and/or good for experiments.

    Also - what wood is the big one on top?  It's super dark red, with a couple thick black stripes running through it.  Could it be an unusually dark and stripe-y piece of padauk?

    Definitely Padauk. A very dark piece of Heartwood. The small feathery grain at the bottom of the pic is a dead giveaway.

    So this weekend we drove out into the foothills looking for cool pictures I can sell.

    I saw this really cool shot of the riverbend (picture #1), so we stopped the car and walked back to the spot. I was getting the camera ready as I walked and accidentally hit the button, taking a picture of who knew what. I figured I would delete it later. 

    I got home and uploaded the pictures, forgetting about the oopsie. Turns out that "oopsie" was a cool shot of the hills with a few fair weather cumulus in a blue sky. Also turned out to be straight by some sheer luck. Picture #2 is my accidental picture.

    Gorgeous pics. Nice composition. I really like the second shot. The slight angle makes it just a bit off putting which is odd for a scene like that.

    We may or may not have also used a laser to cut a pizza today

    I am so proud of our woodworkers. They do an amazing job day in and day out. Also glad to see they are continuing some of our traditions. (pic below from the first week we got our first laser).

    Ding Dong!  DMG box at the door!!!  They weren't kidding when they called my cedar Sentinel aromatic.  I moved the first fold of bubblewrap and I was enveloped with the sweet smell of cedar.

    Leopardwood dragon wallet.  Still debating whether this will be a gift or I keep it for myself.

    Wow, great pics from both of you. Thanks so much for posting. I really love seeing our stuff out in the world.


  5. I had a bad one in fifth grade while playing tackle football. Took a quiz directly after and my writing was chicken scratch ( I thought it was funny that, despite being a good student, my teacher actually graded a quiz where every word I wrote was literally nonsense). I knew I was in trouble when I couldn't figure out how to ride my bike home.  Got home and went right to bed. Next thing I know, I awoke about 30 hours later in the hospital. Evidently, I was sped in an ambulance, threw punches at my dad and older brothers, then let out a 20 minute burst of profanity at the doctors and nurses. Felt fine a couple of days later.

    Got back to school and every kid was concerned that we would get in trouble for playing tackle. I didn't snitch. Also, got the 'F' I received for my quiz expunged.😁

    I'm fine with either. Weather Cougar would be the actual pronunciation.

    That's what I thought too but Lindsey read it as W.X. in the video which I had, oddly, never thought of as an option. I don't know why. Was your KS handle WeatherCougar? Written out fully?

    That's a fine collection.

    I actually have done very little terrain with foam mainly due to having almost no space to store the terrain I already have. What I have done is with the scraps of foam left over from my parents reinsulating their house.

     

    This is what I am currently working on

    https://www.beastsofwar.com/project/1393686/

    It's 20mm modern military minis.

    That is very cool. How do you make the buildings? Also, how do you see good enough to paint 20mm? 🤗

    Actually, I do have a thought... could DMG make custom walking sticks if people asked? Or better yet "sword sticks" (where the blade is also wooden)? I had a character with one, but honestly, I sometimes feel like a good walking stick could benefit me out and about at cons with all the walking (I'm missing joints in my feet, and it means shock that'd be absorbed instead just travels all through the leg).

    We could but we don't have a lathe so it would all be bandsaw work, which isn't quite the same quality. We will try anything once though....

    Terrain looks great. Does the propellent in the rubberized spay paint melt the foam at all? Alot of spray paints will melt it so people coat it in PVA or modge podge first.

    It doesn't but I did try spraying it with some Final Fixative from my art days. That gave it gorgeous crags. Spray outside and stay far away for an hour or two afterward. You can see the crags on the arch way. I didn't try it on the smaller piece. May do more this weekend if I can find the time.


  11. The best part is how cheap it is. 6 bucks for a 2 x 2' sheet of this stuff. These are made from cast offs really. I could make another 10 of these. Obviously paint makes it jump up a bit but I use cheap acrylics. I also found that spraying them with rubberized spray paint (I use the stuff for touching up auto underbodies) works really well, toughens them up, and gives them cool texture.
