Somethin I’ve been fiddlin with in the spare time I don’t have…. lol. Plus, it’s really experimental. It will be a handle of sorts, I hope….....It’s a piece o Walnut, split in half, with a piece o Oak laminated in the middle. The experiment is about the clear epoxy. A shout-out to him, goes here…. Superdave. He did a small project a while back with it, and he gave me the idea for it. Thnx, I appreciate all your projects. Anyway, it’s a jewel that is recessed in a handle on both sides. I had to fill one side, let it cure completely, then the other side, and it’s still drying. When it’s ready, I hope to coat the whole handle with it. It’s lookin pretty kewl so far. Thnx for the looks, n comments, good/bad/ugly. It’s all appreciated.

This was the jewel before the clear epoxy.

Almost looks like one of the paddles I used when I taught school- but with less blood ;^)

I need to try my hand at a resin project as it looks like fun.

Your wooden handle gave me a scary flashback of my high school principle’s spank paddle…YOWZA is right! :)

I have used it before and I like it. I used to make little lapel pins and coat them in it. Looked great and stood up to the washing machine even (some customers told me they accidentally washed them!)

The project looks like it will be cool! :)

Looks good Roger. I have used that finish on my birdhouses with a coat of satin poly on top with sun block. It’s great stuff!

+ another one for Bullwinkle. I have been using acrylic resin for a while. It is pretty cool to experiment with and dries crystal clear…. or you can color it. I have been thinking about doing ‘eyes’ for a mask I made but Lazy has been winning out. Looks like you have a ‘handle’ on things.
