Another busy weekend has come and gone. The speed that time passes continues to amaze me. I must be busy.It is cool here this morning, with just a bit of rain. After the past few days which were rather warm and sticky, I am happy for the change. Although our weather here in Nova Scotia seems very mild in when I hear about how hot it has been in other places. I feel very fortunate.I made some progress on my "Nevermore" plaque yesterday. I didn't quite complete it, but it will be ...
I made good progress on my scrolled version of the "Nevermore" plaque although it did not come without its challenges. It was nothing that I couldn't overcome, but it took some real thought to sort some of the process out in my mind and make it work how I intended. But after spending the day laying things out and finally getting the chance to cut the pieces at the scroll saw, I am fairly happy with the results. Below is a photograph of where it sits as I write this morning: S...
Wha Dont know what to do with those left over, well turn them into new project, this one happen to be left over from Project Maple, I maybe able to acquire 2 pens out of this left over, or maybe just one unknown till I get the feel of whats inside the wood talkin to me
In this pile of wood that would make for nice Caduceus, there is also was one natural wood snake, on topTo the Left is Project Maple, which I took along to break in.
I went hunting for Caduceus in the woods near the Jordan Creek again today 07/25/14.I found 8 pieces of wood suitable for Caduceus. I also found a piece of vine that already looks like a snake, which will make for a nice app for one of my Wild Caduceus.
My nephew didn’t want any more pics to go up until he had a chance to show it to his mother and grandmother (my sister), so I haven’t posted any update. However, since today was return to home day, all may be revealed. After finishing the main box, he cut and glued four cleats to the underside of the top. He clamped up the front and back cleats first, and then snuck up on the length of side cleats. They fit perfectly. I guess I didn’t take any pictures of him cuttin...
I had another busy day yesterday. I had to take my kitty Coco to the vet yesterday to get a little bump on her paw checked out. Fortunately, it turned out to be nothing and she is fine. I was kind of worried that she would have to go through surgery or something like that to get it removed, but the vet said it wasn't a concern. I am sure Coco was happy as well, but she still wasn't thrilled with the ride to the vet and back (about 45 minutes each way). She was just thrilled to b...
Yesterday was busy from dawn to dusk – and beyond! I am thrilled to say that the ornaments that I drew up over the weekend were accepted for Scroll Saw Woodworking and Crafts holiday issue of the magazine. I am really excited about this, because I haven't done much work with them and I hope to become a regular contributor. Last year I had one of my candle trays in that publication, and I have been trying to remind myself to submit to them regularly, but I often let the time sli...
