I don’t usually like engraving on walnut it’s is harder to see then maple, but I really like how this turned out
That looks great. Gives it a bit of a vintage look!
Very cool! (And very true!)
Nice definition. Good job getting the char/soot off
Have you been to my house with all the kids & grand kids? We all go mad. Love the look of it,.
I like it, too!
Cute! Is it a pin? It would be perfect for that.
Yes, this one is a pin!
where do you get the pin “mounts”
I’ve not looked and if you have a good suggestion that would be super.
I’m thinking of awards for field hockey players to accumulate on their gear bags.
Can’t speak for OP, but these are what I get: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072B9XGZ4?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
As for the pin, this came out great!
So those hold up well?
thanks for the pointer!
I figure a dab of epoxy and they would be good to go.
I agree with it being harder to see, however, this looks great!
They’ve held up well over the years for me, but different people use different adhesives. People swear by E6000 but I have never been able to get it to work. I use some Dap super glue, and others have said they can’t get that to work. I always stress test the posts a day after gluing them to make sure they aren’t going to break, so it just comes down to experimentation to figure out what works for you
Those are the ones I use and they work fine However get the ones that are has a bigger pin head so you can use more glue. More surface area, more durable.
I use E6000 and for light wear it’s fine. Most people like to decorate bags which get thrown around so I reinforce it by over lapping dome the mount with epoxy or gorilla clear glue once the e6000 dries. Never had it break after that
yes that is what I’m going for. being able to put the “charm pin” on a field hockey bag.
You are the kind of artist I love, making sure the product is durable. I hate lovely stuff that breaks easily.
I had a couple pins break, I ask the customers how they use them before I replace so I found out that way so I evolved! I don’t get rough with my bags so didnt think how others wear and tear. Actually I don’t really use pins on bags. I like key chain type charms on bags
