Hello all. I am in need. A need to fill the void. The void is an empty spot. The empty spot in an area of the shop I haven’t seen in years. There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory. I know I can build one, just need the plans. Have looked and downloaded several but cant find ones concerning a Montana style. Those guys craft some s...
Yesterday I delivered about 10 more scrollsaw items to the new craft mall that I have joined. In this mall I have leased one cabinet, with 4 shelves, each 42 inches wide and 24 inches deep. At the present time I am a long way from filling my space, as you can see. However the space was available and they do go FAST in this mall. I waited one day to make up my mind and it was one nervious day. The mall manager had promised to hold the space for that amount of time however still I had ji...
I just signed up to volunteer at the Seattle Bungalow Fair later this month. I have never been to the fair but it looks great. Has anyone been or planning to go? How is the overall atmosphere? Is it a worthwhile “fair” to attend for a recent Greene & Greene/Arts & Crafts fanatic? Love to meet up with some other LJ’s who will be in attendance. -Chris May Your Cuts be Tear Out Free!!!
I have never attempted to do wood carving other than some chip carving but lately I have been fascinated by some of the work I have seen. I watched a guy in Savannah Georgia doing carving in front of a consignment arts shop and was captivated by his skill. My wife and I are looking for a motor home to travel the US and I was concerned I would not get to do any wood working which made me not want to do any traveling but now I think wood carving would be the ideal thing for me to do while on lo...
First a plywood base was cut to shape. It has (4) 1” holes to let air escape from the foam quickly. Then 2” thick medium density foam is cut 1/2” oversized in all directions. The foam is cut to shape on the bandsaw, and held in place with spray foam. Here, high-loft Dacron is stretched over the foam and stapled in place. -----Next, goat leather is stretched over the Dacron, and stapled in place. Caden did a nice job with the pneumatic stapler. -----Here Caden is ins...
Thanks to all who responded. Just in case you’re interested, my business plan is beginning to take shape. I have a web site up and running now (WAYNEWERKS.COM). I have displayed several of my products there, but haven’t done any pricing yet. I’ve also set up an account on ETSY.COM, but haven’t much luck there yet. I’m sure I’ll need to add more products in order to reach a larger demographic and increase the likelyhood of making sales. I’ve also set u...

Without haste I have started the Queen size Arts and Craft style bed that I promised my wife. I am using the plans from American Furniture Design http://www.americanfurnituredsgn.com/arts_and_crafts.htm and I plan to follow it up with the night stands and dressers. I guess a review of their plans will follow this build in a couple of weeks. Until mine is built here is a picture of the bed from the web site of what it is supposed to look like. I had purchased the wood for this build back in th...
