Stumpy's Twigs of Knowledge #2: Rules aren't meant to be broken. They're meant to measure things...

11 hours ago by StumpyNubs | 7 comments »

As you know, here at the Stumpy Nubs Workshop we like to bend the rules. Something we even break them. But most often we simply create a nasty kink that forever keeps the darn things from lying flat again. Yes, I am a rebel. But rules aren’t really made to be broken, they’re made to measure things. So quality really matters. By now most of you have caught on to my little play on words. But for the few still confused, I’m talking about the plain old woodworking ruler, an all too often under...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1358: "The Raven" Completed

15 hours ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I have always loved reading Edgar Allen Poe stories. From as far back as I remember, he has been one of my favorites. I loved the depth of emotion he wrote with and the feelings that reading his works evoke. He was certainly a gifted author.I often talk about all the ideas that live in my head. As a designer, I feel very fortunate to have that because it wasn't very long ago when I remember struggling to think of new things to create that would be both unique and exciting. But lately, tha...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1357: Nevermore

1 day ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

What a wonderfully positive day I had yesterday. I really appreciated all the wonderful comments that you all made and sent regarding my new painting design that I am creating for the August issue of Interactive Artist Magazine. This is my first project with them, and I wanted it to be something special.  I already had a couple of offers to purchase the piece and many inquiries regarding the pattern.  Because this piece will be published, I won't have the rights to it until Dece...

In the beginning...

2 days ago by Jeff | 0 comments »

Hello, Thought I would make a few post in the blog here. I am just now trying to get serious about building woodworking projects. I have always enjoyed the process of building things and I have always been a DIY kind of guys for projects that I can do myself. If I can do it, no way I am paying someone else to do it for me. Of course, sometimes my ability to get something done does not meet my wife’s expectations. Thankfully, I have been blessed with an awesome wife! My Dad wa...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1356: Halloween Project Progress

2 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Yesterday, I feel as if I really accomplished a great deal. After several days of thinking through my next painting project, I slowly and carefully began actually creating it. From outward appearances it may seem that things just spill out onto the board and fall into place. But with projects such as this, I needed to think of things in layers, carefully considering where each element was going to be placed. From the first photo, you would think that the moon would be the central fo...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1355: Time

3 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

As I sit here this morning and wonder what I am going to write about, I can't help but think about how quickly time is passing. Here we are already in the meat of July. While the calendar indicates that summer is just beginning, I am already starting to see many people posting projects for the fall and winter season.  I don't think this is a bad thing, as I myself am working ahead toward autumn and even Christmas projects. I think it is necessary to stay ahead of things and have ...

Apiary #10: Recent Pictures, box and feeder

4 days ago by CueballRosendaul | 3 comments »

I thought I’d add a few more pictures to the blog tonight. First, a picture of my first temporary feeding method, the pie pan of syrup. You can see that there are a couple wasps hanging around. The sticks are so the bees don’t drown and it gives them a place to easily hang on while drinking the syrup. Since this is a 1:1 mix of sugar and water, they supposedly don’t store it, but just consume it and use it as fuel to build wax comb. Also a picture of my new top fe...
