In continuation of the series of inlaid panels representing the historical uniforms of the British Army, we bring the pictures up to pre-war period by introducing this week the dates of 1870 and 1910. Project # 1716.
The completed articles are roughly the same style as the previous pairs which have been produced, and form excellent mural decorations for billiard room, club room, lounge, etc. The panel is composed of a background of mahogany upon which is the central panel work of the inlaid picture itself. Project # 1694.
The process is a little longer than the cutting of ordinary fretwork, but as every part of the wood is used we can make up four distinct panels at one operation. The letters on each part represent one of the woods we are using, and by fitting the various pieces together, much as we should a jigsaw, a panel of multicoloured, but very attractive parts, is made up. Project #1701.
Below and above the picture is a shaped projecting ledge which serves to throw the picture itself in greater relief. Below the lower ledge we have the simple overlay containing the date, whilst at the top of the picture and above the upper ledge we have an overlay holding in place the small circular beveled mirror. The general construction, therefore, is simple, as there are no joints to fix, and all the positions are ruled by the placing of the one central inlaid panel. Project #1708.

This simple project will get your laundry room organized. Its a wall mounted shelf with a spot for the ironing board, hanging space for clothes and shelf for extra laundry room items.
I thought this was a neat idea. But the catch is, the store bought igloo kit costs over $200 Canadian so I made a jig that does the very same thing.
