Well, my goodness. Who knew I would love working in metal? I’ve worked in clay, pencils, markers, oil painting, and watercolor. I never dreamed I’d enjoy sawing bits of salvage yard copper scraps. And, yet, here I am doing just that and loving it.
Watch for lots of copper jewelry. I’m on a roll!
|My set up on the back porch. It was 99 degrees yesterday, so my Dr Pepper is close by.|
|This strip of copper is from the salvage yard. |
Colburn made the bench pin (wooden piece with V shape cut out).
|A package of different size saw blades. Each bundle has about a dozen blades. That’s how tiny they are.|
|Lube for the saw blade. Love that it says “takes the chatter out.” |
Could’ve used that with my youngest daughter. haha
|Very skinny blade, all lubed up and ready to go.|
|I’m really pleased at how well I did sawing straight lines.|
It’s important to keep my shoulders relaxed and BREATHE.
|Getting tired of sawing straight lines.|
|Feeling triumphant and sweaty after sawing a curved line!|
