Buena Suerte!

"Lucky Horseshoe Wall Hanging" ~Sold~

My friend loaned me his standing band saw and I LOVE it! This horseshoe was cut using it. I'd been using a jigsaw, but the band saw is much faster. I never thought I'd be a power tools girl, but I've really been enjoying crafting my own pieces from scratch. I'm no longer limited trying to find the base pieces that I want to paint, if I can dream it up, it most likely can be cut out! Also, thank goodness I have my boyfriend to help me when I'm overwhelmed with projects, he's very generous with his time (and much faster with the power tools than me!).

I love it! I have attempted to use a jigsaw to cut out special shapes to paint and decorate, but found it to be too hard to control. Many props to you for pulling it off! Yes, a band saw is also on my wish list!
I love the marionette, and would love to see what one you would make would look like!
Buena Suerta y muchas
