I had a very full day yesterday, but I did manage to achieve my goal of finishing up the other two versions of the Hare Herb Garden Markers pattern that will be featured in the June issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine. I am very happy with the results, although it didn’t happen without hitting a couple of stumbling blocks and figuring out the processes that I used. But that is part of why I write her and part of the reason I try to offer accompanying articles when I am te...
OK – Now you all have that song going through your head. It was hard not to think of it all the while I was making this project. I don’t know what it is with me and bunnies lately, but I just have a lot of “bunny” ideas that I am thinking about. Maybe it has to do with the time of year me thinking ahead to warmer days. This is a project that I am doing for the June issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine. The theme for the magazine is “summer̶...
I’ve been working on this bench for more than a year and am finally almost finished. The base is ash and is from a plan I got from woodstore.net and the top is 2×6 lumber from Home Depot and is loosely based on the Stumpy Nubs 2×6 Roubo bench. The top is 36” x 59” and 5” thick. I made it wider than both of the plans called for because I wanted to use it for assembly. I haven’t had a chance to seal it yet because as soon as the top was flat I started...
This is a blog on how i made this project: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/96630 These days my shop is cold. Really cold. It is open on one side and it has been about -5 degrees C outside for a while now. I can only be out there for shorter durations of time and wearing thick layers of clothing. But it has been quite a while since i made my last project and i really had a need to get in my shop and tinker a bit. What to make that is not too big a project and that improves beeing ins...

This video has next to zero production value but is a cool process none the less. The strips of ash are dry fit in the jig to get the initial bend, then glued and put back in. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Zd8rwZ4gQI&list=HL1389547025&feature=mh_lolz Hope it motivates others to try something new.

I had to switch gears yesterday and jump from snowmen and snow globes to chicks and spring colors. I suppose that is part of what I really enjoy about my job – I am never working on anything long enough to be ‘bored’ with it. This is truly an exciting time of year for me. I know that I can say that just about any time of year, but with the holiday season upon us, it seems that I am working on more projects and directions and the days pass by very quickly. I am sure that p...
As I am writing this morning, the sky is a very light blue and it is filled with puffy clouds. The bottoms of the clouds are an incredible peachy/orange hue that blends into the peachy/grey tops. If I painted a picture like this, some would think it looked ‘fake’, as the colors are so unusual. But it is there and it is a beautiful sight to wake up to. I can feel already that it will be a good day. I made pretty good progress yesterday on my project. The second version of th...
To me, one of the best things I find with designing is that the only rules that I have to follow are my own. I think that is one of the main reasons that I became a designer in the first place. I never really followed along with rules. It isn’t that I am not able to do so. Usually I am pretty good at reading instructions and following them to the letter. . My friend Cari and I were “experts” at doing things like putting together projects, toys and furniture (you know ...
