Rustic Vanity #5: Half Baked Vanity

02-15-2007 10:38 PM by dennis mitchell | 5 comments »

Yesterday was spent spraying finish. I applied a coat of conversion varnish. Then I glazed the alder with a brown glaze. I’ve never tried the glaze with conversion varnish, but was pretty happy they seem to work together. I never know…nothing is as much fun as finishing an entertainment center and having it go all milky after sitting for ten minutes! The fumes are nasty so I enjoyed getting out of the shop to paint my carvings. My wife wasn’t home so I got to use the kitche...

Simply Waiting to Be Miraculously Discovered; Learning Lessons Along the Journey.

02-15-2007 07:34 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 23 comments »

I was reading some of the supportive comments to my blog yesterday, and the offer to pray for my business. I appreciate that help more than you might know. So, to help give a little better understanding of how I trust in that Power, I thought I would share a little more of my Faith-Growing story. My hope for taking the time to write this morning, is that someone else will also be encouraged while they are waiting to be Miraculously Discovered. Which is a theme that is pretty consistent ...

02-15-2007 03:02 PM by frank | 3 comments »

”Beauty in Amazement at Being” some, beauty is a quandary which roams around, looking to provoke a response to the question of, ‘to be’.... or ‘not to be’....and therein lies the riddle of a wondrous waundering wondering mind…. —-my response to the question of ‘to be’ or ‘not to be’, is best felt in my reaction to my moment of just ‘be’, and when the ‘be’ of all is released within me, ...

I went looking for a post that I added to day before yesterday and it was after 7 pages of posts in the last day that I realized that there are getting too many people in here to keep track of one page, so I had to add it to my website just to keep track of it. That’s good news. If you all have stuff to keep track of, I highly recommend adding it to your personnal website/blog so you’ll know exactly where it is. This was all “The Drawer” that i was keeping things...

Business Plan Counseling Summary

02-15-2007 07:16 AM by Mark A. DeCou | 10 comments »

I made my second visit to the college to get business plan advice today. The counselor that helped me was very nice, and quite interested in trying to help. Last week I presented my plan to him by summarizing my thoughts, successes, failures, philosophy, image, market target, target customer, product niche, marketing materials, advertising summary, juried show summary, target demographics, competition summary, marketing plan, and basic financial summary. This week, he presented me with...

Add a little decoration to your woodworking project.

02-15-2007 05:55 AM by Roger Strautman | 3 comments »

As you can tell by my screen name I’m a woodcarver but not just any kind of woodcarver, a chip carver. I like to make boxes, plates, wall hangings, ect. and I wanted to decorate them but I’m not a painter so chip carving was the next best way to decorate. Chip carving is one of the simplest types of carving because all you need is a knife, ruler, pencil with an eraser, and a bow compass. A little chip carving on you woodworking project will set yours project apart from others, it&...

Blue Spruce Toolworks

02-14-2007 09:08 PM by Ethan Sincox | 1 comment »

I don’t know if I can say enough good things about Dave Jeske, owner of Blue Spruce Toolworks. My best friend’s birthday is coming up (February 17th, actually) and I wanted to get him something with a little umph to it for his birthday. He is a great musician (guitar and mandolin, mostly) and some day wants to blend his love of music with woodworking and become a luthier of sorts. So over the past few years, I’ve taken the opportunity to start giving him some woodworkin...

"The Function of Beauty" --by RusticWoodArt

02-14-2007 02:59 PM by frank | 2 comments »

”The Function of Beauty” is in the essence of who i am, by the character of my spirit as wrought forth, in the singing of my hands to sounds of rapturous travail, that shall declare ‘the function of beauty’ to just so be…. And so beauty ‘just is’.... Beauty functions whether you give it a place of rest or no-place and send it on its way…. Beauty will function as art by being homeless and living in a kings regal and at the same...
