Thought this would be a fun list. Stuff you could make for your wife, sister, brother, brother-in-law, boss, friend or family member. Not to complex, but fun, perhaps adding a link to etc. Repeats, adding new links etc are ok etc. For all real woodworkers ! It’s time to start cranking out some gifts …. #1 blanket chest ....link ... #2 corncob holders … link ... 3 picture frame 4 paddy wacks #
I managed to squeeze in a workshop update before the Thanksgiving holiday. Happy Thanksgiving, and enjoy!
After completing the Segmented Vessel, I decided I’d make the segments on my next piece a little thinner than the 3/4” previously used. Since we are all in the Christmas spirit, I thought I’d make a new ornament for our tree this year. The segments in this piece are 1/4” thick, and this piece includes a total of 92 segments. Here’s the before picture of the ornament blank glued up on the lathe. After turning, sanding and the first coat of wipeon polyurethan...
After a somewhat bumpy road of construction and design, I have finished my Christmas box. I say the road was ‘bumpy’ because there were a few issues that I had in both the design and the execution of creating this box. I can however say that I have ironed out all of those bumps and recreating this pieces should be very easy for those who wish to do so. I am happy with the results. Those of you who read saw that my first attempt of cutting the lid design included the misspel...
Decided to come up with a way of displaying greeting cards this year, rather than taping them to the wall. Here's a PDF if you'd like a few templates to cut out.
Holy cow! Christmas is only a month away. Have you started making gifts? Here’s a little decorative swing that holds a couple of flower pots. I had the most fun making the little ladybug that sits on the swing. Unleash your inner artist: it’s the unexpected details that make a mundane project soar.

Today is one of my favorite days of the year. Those of you who read know that I frequently wish that my days had more hours in them, and today is the one day of the year that my wish actually comes true. A 25 hour day! Now how I am going to use that extra hour is hard to decide. There are so many wonderful directions that I am heading in right now that I could choose from a variety of tasks. Yesterday was a very productive and happy day for me. All week I was working on a new ornament ...
Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #12: "Reindeer Games" Layered Ornaments Part 2
Ok! So I dropped the ball a little! I honestly forgot that I was posting these videos here in the class. I suppose that there was a bit too much going on, and then I took a short holiday and it completely slipped my mind. I suppose I don’t earn the prize as the smartest kitten in the litter, do I? But hopefully, you will all let bygones be bygones and we can continue on from here in our little adventure. Let’s see . . . where were we? We had our pattern applied t...
