Today I found the time to cut the tops and shelves for all three night stands to size as well as glue up all 12 legs. I will try to get into the shop tomorrow afternoon and cut the legs to length and lay out the joint locations. Here are the pictures that I promised in my blog. Cheers
I completed the mechanism for the inside of the box lid and fit it to to canvasse boards that it will hold. I believe they are 12”X9? I built the cover for the top out of baltic birch ply and chamfered the edges to make it a bit more sleek. I put my artistic abilities to the test and printed off a quote from the English illustrator Arthur Rackham. I made sure the font was something attractive but would still be easy to burn. I printed the quote out and taped it to graphite transfer...
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...
Here is the 3rd part of making a face relief. I’ll not write to much, just enjoy the short movie ;) MOVIE
Several people have inquired about the Pochade box I am building for my wife. A Pochade box is a painter’s box that can be transported out into the field.

Mine is made of walnut sides with a bookmatched maple top. The base, sub-base and drawers are ma...
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...
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...
