LJ friends and gifts. #27: Japanese, Russian, Danish teapot lid, life is a miracle.

07-13-2015 08:52 PM by mafe | 19 comments »

Japanese, Russian, Danish teapot lidlife is a miracle Some time back I got a unexpected mail from Russia, a man wrote me that his wife’s teapot got a broken lid and that he would love if I could make her a new. I don’t know the man who wrote me, I don’t know his wife, I have never been to Russia, in fact my grandfather was a soldier, in command of a cold war base in Denmark, to keep us protected against the danger from Russia, during the cold war years. So yes nothi...

Slightly Rustic Beer Gift Set- Beer Caddy, Tote, etc.

03-20-2015 07:07 PM by AlexHarris | 2 comments »

Back before Christmas I built this simple beer tote to present some beers, which I had bought my Dad as a gift. As this was a gift I designed it to tightly house the bottles (the handle acts to hold them in place) but this could easily be adapted for day-to-day use. Check out the video below!

Make a 3D Christmas Tree Puzzle on the Bandsaw

12-20-2014 06:18 AM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 0 comments »

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...

Woodworking For Therapy #19: Back In The Starting Blocks

06-12-2014 04:09 PM by Steve Kreins | 6 comments »

I thought it was time for an update for my fellow LJs. I’m mostly recovered from my second chemo embolization May 22. It was faster than last time, however I’m now back on my oral chemo therapy.

Several weeks ago I received a package in the mail with a beautiful box and the following note from an anonymous source. 5/27/20...

Other than that, I had complete creative freedom. I came up with the serving tray idea since they frequently prepare food down in the galley and have to bring it to the back deck for eating, and they currently just use some plastic serving tray. For the design, I decided that a prominent Compass ...
