I know there are some wood turners/carvers here that can do this. I don’t have these skills. https://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=1yWmqbltB-c This is very impressive.
I have enjoyed my new bandsaw greatly. It was a great addition and there will be many more project coming off of it. This time I am making a small Christmas Tree Puzzle that is 2 levels high. The materials cost is extremely low because you can use a scrap 2×4. This project can get the kids involved or you can hog all the building fun for yourself. The approximate size of the the is 6″x3″x 1 1/2″. After a little paint it can go to the kids to give them some fun times. Click here for the vid...
I wasn't even going to blog today but I was up early working on some things and I was so amazed at the difference adding just a "little bit" extra to my ornaments made. I have some ornaments and gifts that I am in the process of finishing up for my own gift giving and in looking at my SLD486 Merry Christmas Letter Blocks, I liked them, but they needed that little 'extra.'They were pretty made with nicely grained maple, finished with clear shellac: But after all, this ...
It has been a truly crazy couple of days for me. Most of it has been good, but some of it has been silly. I have been in so many directions that I don't know what to talk about first! I received TWO beautiful gifts from ornament swaps that I participated in this year! I love ornament swaps because it gives me a chance to have something that is made by a fellow woodworker or painter. It is always fun and exciting to give and receive a 'secret' gift from someone who shares...
Making decorations is fun. Woodworking, welding, and smithing are also fun. This time I combine them all and create a decorative sled. This is a very simple project that will get plenty of years use.

I can no longer see it on YouTube to embed the video here.
Today's post is going to be rather short (well – by my standards anyway!) Both Keith and I are working very hard to get some more new designs to you for your holiday crafting. Keith just finished a beautiful new set of ornaments that are in his very popular filigree style. I believe he finished up the pattern last night and he should be making them available on the site sometime later today. I think they are just stunning: I also have been working on a couple of new sc...

I had a very busy day yesterday. But it was the kind of day that was also a great deal of fun. (I have had a lot of those lately!) I spent the majority of it decorating my new SLD485 Holiday Lights Damask ornaments that I previewed to you yesterday. I had cut several sets of them because I knew I wanted to play with them and experiment with many of the wonderful finishes that I had here from DecoArt and hot fix rhinestones from Rhinestone Canada. I had several ideas of how I wanted to d...
I am the first to admit that I am not a fast worker. Be it painting, scroll sawing, sewing or anything else, I find that it usually takes me quite a bit longer than the average person to accomplish most things.I also admit that it used to bother me, but as I get older, it doesn't seem to do so as much anymore. As we accumulate large quantities of what we are making, adding to the pile just seems to . . . well . . . add to the pile and sometimes I feel that things lose their 'spec...
At this time of year I am always asked to make various wooden stands for electronic devices.This gives me the chance to use up some scrap wood.These are quick and easy, and the designs are limitless and only bound by the imagination.These are but a few of the types that I have made for my family and friends.Enjoy.http://youtu.be/10sXW0demhk
