I am searching for Nativity scroll saw patterns. Now I have looked in all the traditional places; Shelia Landry, The Winfield Collection, Berry Basket and I have all of these. I want them to be table top and traditional in design. This is an ongoing project I have started and not just for this season. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

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

10-24-2013 at 11:04 AM 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.

QUESTION: HOW VERSATILE IS A LARGE BLANKET CHEST OR BOX? 15 Century Chest above My opinion…EXTREMELY! Antique Pennsylvania Chest above Here are my thoughts on the simple, large, well built CHEST, dovetailed nicely or fastened with glue and screws. By the way, the items shown here I would not dare call “simple” as the craftsmen have certainly taken time and care and worked hard and meticulously for which I have much respect. 1. The Toy Box2. The Family Blanket ...

questions from a beginner

Hi all! I am a young 16 year old guy that is starting to be interested in wood turning and also antler turning. currently i have shaped multiple antlers into different knives, but am looking for a good protective coating. I do not want to be able to use it as an everyday knife, but a ceremonial knife. I want to be able to have it be sharp but don’t want to harm the bone itself. Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Arts and Crafts Wedge and Strap Bed #10: Stain, Lacquer, Hardware, and Lighting

09-23-2013 at 10:33 AM by pintodeluxe | 5 comments »

I stained and sprayed lacquer, and let the finish cure for 48 hours. Next I waxed the bed with Howard’s Walnut Wax and #0000 steel wool. Then I turned my attention to mounting the drawer pulls. I use Scott Collins “no math” method for laying out the hole locations. Then I offset the holes 3/16” higher than the layout mark, because the threads on the pulls are off-center. I use a full-size jig to mount the four pulls. -----Drawer pulls installed.-----I installed a...
