Today's post will be rather short. I spent the day yesterday writing the pattern packets for the little sea life ornaments. I created two packets – one which uses the regular painting methods and the other using Margot Clark's MUD texture paste. I will be adding both patterns and the wood piece kits to my Etsy site later on today. I will have it on my Sheila Landry Designs site with the next update. :) I finished right around dinner time last night, and then I spent t...
I went to the woods near the Jordan Creek, Allentown PA, an hunted for some Caduceus for carving, I found Project #666, and found the piece of wood in the photograph (end/ bottom)
Here is a project that looks like fun. Maybe a great Christmas gift.
I debated where to put this, then decided to stick with my Blog! I had a makeshift lumber rack made out of an old prison bunk-bed frame, it did it’s job, but it took up too much space, then last week I watched Jay Bates from Jays Custom Creations, construct a simple lumber rack made from 2×4s and metal conduit on YouTube, and that spurred me on to build a new rack. I hitched up the trailer and went off to Homecenter, bought a stack of 2×4s and some other timber for othe...
...and ‘premium cut’ lumber has square edges?
A couple of weeks ago I ordered a 2-1/2” universal port that I had hoped to use on the backside of the Delta 36-510 Bench Saw. With that beast being parked indefinitely due to a bad armature bearing, I can now use it for it’s original intent: a dust collection port for the yet-to-be-finished base for the Skilsaw 3410-02 that I started over a month ago. Along with the port I ordered a 10’ length of wire reinforced 2-1/2” dust collection hose. The hose was suppose to be ...
Dug out some of my older work. Thought I’d share how the carving looks after 35yrs. Chair is childs size repair from the dump. Split seat and missing leg/rungs.http://s1361.photobucket.com/user/Richard_Knouse/media/x90/house/2%20old/DSCF0831_zps72e8abde.jpg.html?filters[user]=136018053&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&o=0http://s1361.photobucket.com/user/Richard_Knouse/media/x90/house/2%20old/DSCF0830_zps681cbc47.jpg.html?filters[user]=136018053&filters[recent]=1&sort=1&...
As I was driving to my client’s home last night, out in the country, I must have been daydreaming and i missed my turn. A few yards down the “new route”, I saw a pile of ginseng slats with a For Sale sign on them. A little voice in my head said “hmmm. I wonder how much they are selling for? I bet I could use them for something, perhaps a fence”. I turned around and headed down the right road and continued on with my daydreaming, whatever that was about at the ...
I’m feeling very thankful and grateful today. I just found out that a friend of mine, Bob, the guy who helped me turn my osage orange mallet, had a series of small strokes recently. His sight and mental capacity has been severely affected to the point where he can no longer drive or operate any kind of machinery. He says it is like there is a big black hole in his head. He has a thought and before it gets to his mouth to say what he wanted to say or to his hands to move the way he...
