Woodworkers get some "tough guy" respect (ha ha)

03-14-2012 02:21 PM by ScottMorrison | 13 comments »

Hellofellow LJ’ers. A few years ago, Gerber Legendary Knives shot a TV commercial, and in a moment of pure lunacy, decided to include yours truly in the advertisement. The “tough guy” attitude shown in the video is pretty ironic, as anyone who knows me understands what a big baby I truly am. I once got a splinter and cried about it for 2 days (I can show you the scar, if you want). Enjoy the vid.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #640: Sharing Our Passion

03-14-2012 11:18 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

There are many different avenues that one can take and still be on a creative path. While having choices is good, there are times when there are almost too many things to choose from and only so many hours in the day. While most of us are familiar with the phrase ‘spreading ourselves too thin’, there are times when things are not as defined as we would like them to be as far as which path to follow and it is hard not to want to do everything at once. I often feel that this is t...

drying slab lumber

03-13-2012 04:21 PM by Monte Pittman | 4 comments »

I am becoming unable to store some slab lumber in my shop. If I stack it on risers outside so it doesn’t touch the ground & put a tarp over it, will it be OK to dry there?

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #635: What You See Isn't Always What You Get

03-07-2012 12:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I am afraid that I don’t have many interesting things to talk about today. I spent the majority of the day yesterday working on photographs for the pumpkin pattern. I had shown the step-by-step pictures that I had taken earlier in the week and since then have taken more pictures to show the steps to painting the pumpkin faces. The results is quite a few pictures necessary for that one packet. In order for the pictures to be useful, they need to show the true color of what they are....

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #5: I'm not the only moron around here... Introducing Joy, Kyle and Randy...

They see me talking to someone off camera on one of the shows, or they notice I say “we, here at the Stumpy Nubs Workshop” a lot, yet I’m the only one they ever see on camera. So, here’s the lowdown on that: It’s much like the situation that Sam Maloof enjoyed, only without the skill and artistic genius. He hired a young man to help him around the shop. Soon he had far more people who wanted to be his “shop boy” than he had spac...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #634: Many Directions

03-06-2012 11:46 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

One thing about doing the variety of things that I do, I never really run out of new ideas. I enjoy the thought of moving from one style to another and while sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming, for the most part it keeps me longing to work and looking forward to each day and creating something new. The kitty chalkboard is out the door and on its way to the magazine now. I don’t know why getting things packed up and out the door seems to be so much of a chore, but there are time...
