I am happy to say that yesterday we completed another site update. Even though I have done many projects that needed to be shipped off the the magazine lately, which meant that I couldn’t sell them just yet to my own customers, I am getting new projects released all the time that I am able to put up on the site and have new items for everyone to make. It all balances out, I suppose. Another thing that helps is having a partner. When I am working on a painting pattern or something t...
I had a really fun weekend. It is nice to know that I can do what I want to do, and it is still related to scrolling and painting. On Saturday, I had shown the little patriotic angel teddy bear that I painted. I had it in my mind that I wanted to offer this up as a free pattern on the site for the painters that follow me. I sometimes feel that I don’t have enough new stuff for the painters, as it is a part of the site that I am still establishing and developing. I am also finding ...
Sometimes you have to put the wood work aside to take care of other stuff around the place. I’ve noticed online quite a few people wondering if you can raise or move a shed. Here’s living proof of how quick and easy it is. Normally I have one of my several gardens next to the shed as well but this year I had to put it off because the shed was sinking into the ground and being taken over by ground hogs. I had to raise it 4”. The shed is 10×20. Empty I figured it to be ab...
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...
Yesterday didn’t quite go as I planned it. Sometimes that happens, and I have learned that we just have to roll with things sometimes. I had planned to spend the day painting, and in reality, I only had an hour or so before I was tired out and decided to call it a day. But sometimes that is just the way it is. In the morning, I needed to make a call to the vet. About a month ago, I had discovered a small lump on the chest of my kitty Richard. While I was concerned, I didn’...
Well, it’s been a while since I have done any serious woodwork (too long) but what I have done is complete a tablesaw build.Some of you may have seen the question I asked when I came across the oportunity to get a free table saw: http://lumberjocks.com/topics/41959Comments were varied, from don’t touch it to grab it while you can. Well here are the results. First job was to strip off the fairly flimsy frame and set about building a new one.The legs are fairly substantial 3̶...
I feel very relieved this morning. Yesterday afternoon I finished the written instructions for each of the four projects that are going to be published in the holiday issues of both Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine and also Scrollsaw Woodworking and Crafts magazine (Yes! I know it is confusing! The only two magazines that I know of that are geared to scroll sawing have such similar names!) While I have been a contributing editor to Creative Woodworks and Crafts for over 15 years, thi...

Answering the question – veneering with Old Brown Glue Let me know if you have any questions
Hello Lumberjocks! Today I launched my own website and google adwords campaign! over the last few weeks I developed my own website equipped with the ability to allow shoppers to see my wood products and buy them directly from me… err I mean Spud Woodworks… Take a look: Spudwoodworks.com It has been quite the busy time. But I was able to do two freelance projects with maple recently. I will be sure to post them in the project page as soon as I find the time… Regards,...
