Holy cow! Christmas is only a month away. Have you started making gifts? Here’s a little decorative swing that holds a couple of flower pots. I had the most fun making the little ladybug that sits on the swing. Unleash your inner artist: it’s the unexpected details that make a mundane project soar.

Thank you for sharing. My favorite shot was you turning the camera on its side to show what it will look like with the arms on it :) As always, it was a pleasure watching

oh, and I agree about the ladybug, well done with it :)

I think you were channeling Bob Ross starting around 7:30.

Neat project. I was watching you sand the ladybug and half expected it to escape from the sander at the speed of light. (Well, that seems to be what happens in my shop with small parts.)

Now that’s FUNNY JJohnson. Steve with a Bob Ross wig! Steve, you gotta add that to your props for a future video. Someone should photoshop it here in the mean time. LOL.

Steve, your videos never cease to make me laugh, and learn too. Keep it up dude! :) I vote that you replace Nahm. Your stuff is MUCH more believable.

@JJohnston: That is so funny. Believe it or not, I actually made a comment about Bob Ross when I was painting this. I thought the vine needed some “happy flowers”. Haha!. However, as with most of what I shoot, I had to edit it out to keep things short.
