This is Sandy. Now don’t laugh at her, she got a little glue in her hair. She’s a beautiful piece of art inspired by a fellow jock. The previous artwork that inspired this was a sanding belt with cherry curls. Let me tell you, I was flabbergasted. I almost bought it I loved it so much, but for 100 bucks I was a little taken back as well. I Said to myself “self, there was a deer in the camp”, and then remembered “hey, I am a woodworking artist too!!” I thought I’d give it a shot, and I think I flunked. Unfortunately folks, she sold, so therefore is unavailable. Mr. William “Trash” Can purchased her for a trade. He is allowing me to put other crap in him too, in exchange.

Anyhow, I don’t want or desire criticism, positive or negative, but if you have to don’t let me stop you. LOL

I want to thank the Jointer for creating beautiful bamboo shavings for sandy’s hair, festool for creating a 6” disk for her beautiful face, and titebond II for spilling on her hair. For what it is worth….This IS a finished woodworking project. The finish is Titebond II. I would have sprayed Lacquer on her but her hair would have fallen out. I would have wiped on some poly but it would have smeared her makeup. So the finish is a natural glue patina. Sorry it isn’t a cherry secretary or a miter saw stand. I’ll get it right next time…...if I haven’t already at some other point during the course of my LJ experience.

Don’t worry, the disk was very well used and was ready for Waste Management to carry it away.

Nothing was hurt in the making of this project, well except for my dignity.

I’m very sorry Rick that my wonderful project didn’t bring you inspiration to create wonderfull art yourself. One day I will get it all out of my system and be a stiff old grumpy fart, and I’ll snicker at everyone that even fathoms the slightest hint of humor any where, any time. It’s a goal I strive for really. I just can’t seem to get there….........

As usual! Missed the whole point and change the subject to something TOTALLY Meaningless. I think you got it out of your “system” and you “got there” a long time ago!

There is Nothing wrong with Humor, especially in the Forums. AND! ....Oh Forget it you’ll just come back with some other DUMB comment.

”Yes, this is a completed woodworking project” GET THE POINT???

Mafe , thanks for the link to Rick’s actual completed woodworking project
I missed it the first time around and it has inspired me to make one of my own , along with those posted by Bricofleur!2ED8F7A23848B4AE!1321.entry which is reposted on this site as well : ) I also appreciate the humor in this post , but I also learned that the forums is the correct place for this type of posting by my own wrongdoing. Have a great weekend everyone : )
