   Was the routing done aftwer the stain was applied? I had looked at the way of the round over but had not seen that the stain seems to be missing at the place it was routed it looks really nice.

Hello Don
Yes the stain was done on the block of wood then the Puzzle Truck was cut, and the the edges rounder over,then I sanded the edges with nail files.

Hi Don

My wife and I got a kick out of your getting in trouble with your wife over the nail files.  My wife has her nails done every two weeks to have her nails done, so the lady will give her the files she uses on her.

I like using the nail files so much that I now buy them in bulk from a beauty supple store.  They are still cheaper than buying them from a wood working store.  (These are really high quality).

One good thing is when I need a smaller file, I just wrap one in clear packing tape and cut it in half and we now have two or three narrow ones.

I find these to be so much easier on my hands than using sand paper, and I keep finding more and more uses for them.

I was in a furniture making shop the other day, and what do I see, you guessed it, nail files everywhere.

Also the buffing square blocks they use are great for sanding odd shapes and come in a number of grits, and are also really easy on the hands.

They work for me.

   I also find that a set or three of those files that harbor freight carrys are handy they are the old point files I have I think about 3 or 4 sets in the tool box so I have the nail files in the house by the chair I use and I have them in the shop also but for filing out the scroll work in the frets the point files are my go to for doing the finish work they come in several different shapes and the tri file is used along with the round file does a great, they both come in handy on the lathe the finger file and the point file.
Don

PS  while I am thinking of it here is a handy hint for those of you that use file no matter the size from the bastard files to the point files even work on the finger nail file but to clean these any of you that have a cat or cats can use the brush you would use brush them out on the files and the small and concentrated  wire cleans the file real well.
