Hi guys and girls! Is it too late to post today?? I hope not. It has been an incredibly eventful couple of days and this was the first chance I actually got to write. The show was crazy/busy today which is a great thing. I was there late last night doing the judging of the projects and I needed to get up early today for a 6:30 breakfast with the other judges. They kept me on quite a schedule. I have lots of stories and pictures for you all, but it is still difficult for me to write t...
Well, we will finally be able to get into the convention hall and set things up today. We will also be able to meet everyone who is involved in the show. Yesterday was an odd day. I am really really glad that we got here when we did but I felt like it was one of those “wait to hurry up” types of days. Jeannie and her husband Bill were busy with the final preparations, as you can imagine. Keith and I spent most of the morning looking around and shopping. Our hotel is righ...
I’ve been a LJ now for awhile, and even before i joined i was constantly on the site looking at projects. There were always things that i admired about every project, beginner or advanced. – quality of work, even the beginner has areas of great skill – the creativity of the projects, especialy art boxes, simply mazing – the different species of wood being used As i get into woodworking more and more and want to experiment with different species i began noticing th...
This is so unusual being in a different place and having my routine changed. I suppose that I am quite the proverbial “creature of habit”. More so than I would have thought. I am going to the Center today and I promise to have some pictures of that added in later. Now I get to start meeting people and learning. I am very excited. We made it to Jeannie’s by afternoon, as planned. The rest of the trip was uneventful, which was good because much of the Northeast was ...
We made it through the first day pretty well. There are funny stories, of course and incidents, but I am going to keep this really short today for obvious reasons. Getting through customs and over the border was a lot more than we thought it would be. Usually the Canadians are the ones that scrutinize everything because they like to slap taxes on all that you bring over. But I was surprised that it was the US customs agents that were being pretty picky. Since the boxes were filled with...
Sometimes I’m really good! For those of you who doubted we would be able to fit all the stuff we needed for the show in the little Mustang, I get to say “I told you so!” LOL I don’t mean this in a nasty way at all, but I must say that I am pretty darn proud that we were able to fit everything in – and even had room to spare. I suppose that I am so proud because before I had Mustang(s) I had a 1990 Buick Regal. If any of you are familiar with them, you know...
We’re down to the final day here – and not a moment too soon. I think if I had any more time to think, prepare or plan I would drive myself crazy. I haven’t been in crazy state of mind though. Quite the opposite. I have been quite calm and happy. I even took some time out to play a bit of Scrabble on my Facebook. Yesterday my site was down for almost the entire day. I first noticed when I tried to post my blog on it early in the morning. (I copy this blog to it ev...
A video showing how to make some really good wooden bar clamps. End your clamp shortage now! Build some clamps which only cost a few pounds to make and could be better than clamps you can buy. These clamps don’t mark the wood or stain from glue.
Specially for you my dear friend Steliart!It took me 3 hours to clean the mess up, but here it is.I don’t do everything here on the attic. things like the top from the table project were inpossible.But i did alot here and i love the place. Downside it gets incredibly hot in the summer. And it’s not to big :)i insulated the wall for noice reduction, and the floor has 2 layers of subfloor.Still desperatly want a bigger and more accesable workplace, but for now it’s ok. ...
Well folks, its kind of the same old story. We’ve all heard the saying that “no news is good news” and I am happy to report that this is the case. It doesn’t make for very interesting blog reading, but it makes for a very, very happy Scrollgirl. We are at T-minus two days and all seems to be going well. As we get down to the nitty-gritty, there are still no disasters and it appears that everything is going as planned. Yesterday, upon inspecting the little skatin...
