View on YouTube This week I talk about making and attaching the cleats for the seat. After that I upholstered the seat and using Hal Taylor’s techniques attached the rear legs and tried the rocking chair out for the first time!

This will be a gift for my wife. Years ago I rescued some wood at an old mill dumpsite that was going to burn it all to make room for a housing development. The table is made in Honduras Mahogany was some of that lumber. The center drawer is made in rescued Cherry. A friend of mine was on a construction job where a cherry tree was being taken down. He saved it from the chipper & brought it to me. Dovetail You Tube https://youtu.be/7XaxovjV574 Mark Dovetail https://youtu.be/goRf...

View on YouTube This week I’ve been very productive. I finished installing the sterling silver in the ebony bars.

If I am anything, I am patient. I wasn't always that way, but as I get older and learn to appreciate things a bit more, I know that doing things right and getting things done properly takes time. Most times there is no way around that. We live in a society where everyone wants everything fast. Whether it be their food, something they ordered online, or even something that is hand crafted, people don't seem to have the patience and respect that is required to offer something ...
One good thing about doing lots of types of creative crafts is that every time I get to do something else, it is new and fresh to me and I am excited about it. I love painting and I love the recent needle artwork that I have been attempting, but I also love creating cool wood things on the scroll saw. There is something that is so calming and peaceful about following a line with a tiny blade to create 'graceful wood'. It is sometimes difficult to keep up with everything that is g...
I stayed quite busy yesterday, doing one of the things that I love to do. I really love so many of my creative aspects, and switching from one to the other back and forth always seems to keep me freshly excited about every one of them. Yesterday I spent the day at the saw. I had my headphones on and I was into a 'classical' mood. I got lost listening to my three favorite composers – Rachmoninoff, Beethovan and Mozart. It made a good thing even better. Before long, the three...
