Projects by Gord Rock

Thought I would start a thread to show what I’m doing. Mainly, I’m hoping to get feedback on how to improve my work. Feel free to let me know what you think. I will add other projects as I have the time to do them.
The first one is a 2-gang switch plate my wife wanted to replace the plastic one. She wanted oak to match the woodwork.


yeah thats a cool idea for sure

now add a 3d relief carving on the top and sell them for 25 bucks a pop

I like the idea but I don’t think I’m quite ready for that yet! I’ve got way too many things going on to spend as much time as I would like on this. So, it will be awhile before I learn all that I need to learn to do anything like a relief carving. I need to do a lot more reading on this forum but just can’t seem to make the time to do it.
Thanks for the thought!

I used the ornament template to make an acrylic ornament for my wife and each of the kids and grandkids putting each one’s name in the ornaments.


1st attempt at inlays. Not too bad for a first try IMHO. Looking forward to trying something a lot more complicated. Still have to try using text!
