Hi everyone! Today I'd like to share how I made this simple display base for a punch needle eagle I designed. I wanted a base that I could mount 3 flags so this is simply made with 2 pieces of pine to lift the eagle up and adapt to being a flag holder. Follow along with me and ill show you how I made it using Proxxon tools!
- Proxxon Micro Bandsaw
- Proxxon Delta Sander
- Proxxon Power Carver
- 3/4" scrap pine board
- Wood glue
- Plaid Paint black
- Mat finish spray polyurathane
I determined the size I made by the base of the oil can that my punch needle piece is mounted on. I drew a circle about a 1/2" larger and cut out with the Proxxon micro bandsaw. I cut out a second piece a half inch larger and extended it out and squared it off
I then stacked the smaller circle on top of the second piece to check for fit.
Next I decided where I wanted to drill the holes for my flags I marked them and drilled them.
Next I centered the oil can on the circle and drew a line around it. Using the Proxxon Power Carver I removed some of the wood in the center so my oil can will be a tiny bit recessed. I sanded everything with the Proxxon Delta Sander, rounding the edges.
Glue the two pieces together.
Lastly paint with Plaid Paint. I chose black
I then sprayed with a mat finish polyurathane
Thanks for following along with me...Colleen :)
