Well, I’m new to the whole blog thing….the ‘puter and I rarely see eye-to-eye, so I’ve never tried….well see how it goes :) I am making some progress on the two entries. The “not just any box” catagory is a great opportunity to do something I otherwise can’t really do…build somethiing that I’d seen before (sort of!) I saw this jewellry box a while back, and it really “spoke”to me…but when your business is origin...
Had a slight mishap today when I went to mill the legs down so they'd be the proper width after applying a "veneer" edge, I accidentally cut all the pieces! I should have left the those at the final width, I got a little carried away. A little creative thinking and milling a few more pieces out of the remaining door stock, and I'll have legs that will ultimately be a mere 3/16ths skinnier, but and I'm able to proceed using only this reclaimed door lumber. I've thought the inspiration ...

Today I saw a really cool and useful (I think) design on Yankodesign.com. This is a kitchen multi-tool for people that have use of only one hand/arm. I was drawn to the very simple, clean, and elegant look. It’s something anyone could have in their kitchen or store away easily. Just check out this picture. If you go to the website they have more pictures that show how to use it to cut apples, bread, grate cheese, and open those tough foil covered yogurt containers. Check it out. ...
Hi all,I don’t know if everyone pays attention to the annual contest on LJ’s, but this one I don’t understand. I just can’t figure out what this contest wants us to do. I even asked a couple of friends of mine, thinking that it was me not knowing what this has to do with. They did not know either. How are we suppose to show fluidity or movement in wood? If that is what this is saying. Can someone please explain what they are asking us for in this contest? Below is ...
