49 days ago by maplerock | 13 comments »

I had some interest from fellow Lumberjocks to let them know how the sales were at the show this weekend. Here’s a lengthy recap. You may want to get some snacks now or visit the restroom before proceeding. Day one of art show box sales is in the books. Day two is tomorrow. Let’s start at the beginning. Boxguy came up with a bright idea months ago, that he and I team up and present our boxes to the world at a local art show. I agreed and the wheels were set in motion. ...

In Russia #1: Happy Couple

294 days ago by Jim Earl | 3 comments »

I should start showing the beginning picture of my burnings so you can see what I work off of. OK I made a mistake, I did not take a picture before I started this burning so I hope you will be able to see the before and after. Here is a couple that has asked me to burn this as a special momenta. Trying to get the right picture done as a pattern isn’t that easy and sometimes it turns out the first few times. this one took about six time of reprinting. I do go through a lot of in...

pyrographics #3: another little secretr on woodburning

399 days ago by Jim Earl | 1 comment »

While setting here at my desk with another Burning on the table, I was thinking that ONE VERY IMPORTANT secret is(just like with woodworking, painting a masterpiece work of art, YOU have to look for the SOUL OF THE PICTURE. With wood burning, anyone can trace over a picture but you have to look inside the picture for the depth of each color. With a pattern being Black, white and many tone of gray this is where you can tell the difference in the picture. I really can’t describe how o loo...

Fish Out of Water - Intarsia Woodworking

464 days ago by Chris Mobley | 1 comment »

Fish Out of Water – Intarsia Woodworking Most everything that I do, I do with someone in mind and/or for some reason. I very rarely make something just to make it. I found a picture a while back that I really liked of a fish jumping up out of the water to catch a dragon-fly. What drew me to this design was the way the water seemed to splash right out of the frame over a log. I had it printed and held on to it until now. My brother-in-law had a band saw that he never used and it seem...

What caught my eye were photographs of homemade crafts and art from local artisans from around the area. I read the article to find out that a mother daughter duo has opened this unique store to give local vendors an opportunity to share in their passion of creating and selling one of a kind products. I just h...

Longhorn Stampede - Intarsia Woodworking

474 days ago by Chris Mobley | 1 comment »

I have just finished a new project that I am very excited about titled Longhorn Stampede. One of my favorite artist is Roberta Wesley. I often draw inspiration from her works. She has done a painting called “Day of the Horns” that I am very fond of, and this work inspired me to do a piece that I call Longhorn Stampede. In Roberta’s painting, the thing that draws me to it the most is the fact that the longhorn cattle seem to be running right towards you. To view Roberta Wesley’s wo...

Ribbon Butterfly for Blood Cancer

477 days ago by Chris Mobley | 0 comments »

My newest project is of a ribbon butterfly for blood cancer research. I was contacted the other day by a wonderful lady named Jeanne who let me know that she was working with an organization called Team in Training that raises money for cancer research. She contacted me to ask if I would be willing to donate a piece to help raise funds for this cause. I was very honored that I was asked and I am excited that I could do something to help. I went online and looked into this great organization a...
