My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1814: Back to Creating

01-17-2017 01:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I spent the long weekend working on a new painting pattern set. While I have had this idea in my head for quite a while now, I had to just bring myself to do it. I don't know why I am always so timid about jumping into a new project. There is sometimes a fear that it won't come out like I envisioned it in my head. You would think that after all of these years of designing that I would be over those fears and have more confidence than that. But that isn't always the case. I fi...

Current Project #21: Bird Casket

02-18-2015 08:09 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

[Finished project here] I find myself building a casket for one of our pet birds that passed yesterday. The box itself is straight forward enough, but the stumbling block I had was how to close it. While an ash urn is usually closed from the bottom, a casket closes from the top. It took me some thinking, but I finally figured out that I need to hinge the lid and create a way to fasten it shut without going overboard. I’ll be creating my own hinges from wood blocks and a length of ...

Here was a recent project that I completed. It’s a woodpecker feeder. It’s very similar to the ones you can find in the big box stores. It makes a great gift, and can be done in just a couple hours.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1091: Better Late Than Never

07-30-2013 12:08 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Today’s post will be really, really quick! I was just beginning to write and a big storm came through our area. It went from light to dark very quickly and the rain came down in buckets for a bit. Naturally, I shut things down and unplugged them, as it wasn’t worth the risk to keep online. In any case, all has passed and it has calmed down and I am going to write quickly and briefly (Yes – I can!) just to tell you a couple of things that I wanted to share with you. Fir...

Making the Wren #1: Start, to almost finished

05-17-2012 06:17 PM by Donna Menke | 11 comments »

This is the finished bird that I started 2 weeks ago. It took about 24 hours to get it to this stage. I still need to make a mount for the bird, and I’d like to make it unique. That means no ‘bird on a stick’, but also not the trite ‘wren on the edge of the cup/bucket/shoe’ environment. I’ve been wracking my poor little brain trying to figure out something unique and good- that I can do in 3 weeks. Any suggestions.ideas would be appreciated. ThanksNow to th...
