Monday was delivery day and 4 month photo shoot for my daughter! I was commissioned to build some photography props for our photographer and here they are!
I shot some video of a circle cutting jig that I built for the table saw. I will post a YouTube video of that on my channel as soon as I can get some time to edit the video footage. I used the jig to cut a 24" diameter circle out of two pieces of 5/8" thick Baltic birch. Then I marked the center point and cut an off center circle to get the moon shape that was the same between both pieces.
I used glue and brad nails first to align the planks then pocket hole screwed them together for strength. The moon is going to be used for small children and new borns, so it needs to be stable and sturdy more so than hefty.
After sanding and smoothing, I had a few other projects for our photographer that needed to be painted the same color so the many coats of painting started here.
After painting was done I put 4-5 coats of satin wipe on polyurethane on all surfaces to prevent scuffing and scratching of the paint. This took awhile to finish but ultimately, they all look really good and I'm happy with the way each project turned out.
I'm working on editing a couple of videos for YouTube on cutting circles on the table saw and how to replace a DeWalt thickness planer cutter head with a Byrd Shelix Helical Cutter Head. Stay frosted! There's lots more going on here at home with improvement projects! Thanks for supporting me and the work that I do!
