New to the community and the craft. Hello everybody!

1174 days ago by Ward Grant | 10 comments »

Hi all. What a fantastic village you all live in here. Very cool! I am new to carving and to your community. I love working with all the local woods available in the lower mainland. I have only transit for transportation so I scour the beaches and trails and river banks for pieces to call out to me to work with.

Revised Printing: Great Book of Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture

438 days ago by BobLang | 0 comments »

About a year ago, I was excited to see the first copies of the “Great Book of Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture” a compilation of my first, second and fourth books.

Old door mirrors

1505 days ago by Briansey | 3 comments »

I had an old oregon pine painted door that was in pieces – unfortunately we did not take a photo of it, but we have another door that is the same design and I will take a picture of that.

After hubby did the woodworking part of the project, I sanded down all the loose paint. Painted a soft blue over and then finished it with a gal...
