Shuffling (Everyday I'm) #1: Hoarders of cut offs

244 days ago by T. D. Reid | 0 comments »

Well I took the day off yesterday from the three A&C style night stands I’m building to do a little clean up of cut offs I had laying around (two bins 15”W x 36”L x 24”T). I cut them all off at 12” long and not more than 3” wide so I can use them in the wood stove at the cabin. I also needing to organize the bigger pieces of scraps that are usable. You know the stuff that if it was in our house it we would be on that hoarders show. Its tuff to throw out...

Pochade Box in progress #1: Pochade box

248 days ago by Jon1094 | 3 comments »

Varying in size, shape and style they can contain any, all or none of the following: paints, pallets, brushes, solvents, canvases, etc. What a Pochade box really does well though is holds a canvas while one is in the field painting. Mine is made of walnut sides with a bookmatched maple top. The base, sub-base and drawers are ma...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #56: Repurpose your patterns and thinking.

254 days ago by jerrells | 2 comments »

On Friday and Saturday I was a vendor at a local craft show. I got many of the usual “off the wall questions” but some of them got me to thinking. I cut many of Shelia Landry’s (and Keith’s) candle tray patterns and several people ask if they were trivets. Well some of them, printed at about 75%, make a great size trivet. So I think I will start offering some like that. Also, on a separate note, I cut some of the 3 dimensional patterns from Sue Mey and Steve Good...

Carved letters #1: A few words about "letters".

260 days ago by Snycerz | 5 comments »

Good day is a day with good work. This time i want to show some of projects with carved letters. This kind of work needs a few things:- time- patient- sharp chisels- patient- certain hand- patient, patient, patient…The fun thing in this artcraft is that, there is no place for mistake. If one move will be done badly, then all letter is gone. The edges of letter must be done perfectly. It’s a lot of work to make your hand, moves so precisely, but it can be done. This project is a...

My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #14: Holy Cow, what fun!

272 days ago by Ethan Harris | 5 comments »

Hey everyone! It has been crazy! I’ve launched my own website, expanded products, paid my taxes and continue to make Spud Woodworks a real opportunity for myself and my family. I did hit a rut for awhile, it was difficult going day in and day out just sitting there making the same thing over again. But it dawned on me, I can always find opportunity to improve a product, grow its customer base, and make more varied styles and editions. Over all its been exciting. Really exciting! A...
