At long last, my latest booklet, How to Make a Ball-Jointed Doll in Wood, is finished and available. After a year of trials and errors I have made a darn good set of plans and instructions for my 7” ball-jointed doll. The booklet is 48 pages long- more a mini-book than a booklet- and has 120 full-color step-by-step photos as well as 6 pages with full-sized plans and assembly diagrams.

I loaded them into my truck and trailer and got home in time to unload and load up again and head to Carv-Fest for three days of classes. If you'd like to check it out, CLICK HERE!...

Great job of getting me to take photo’s of my dirty shop. To teach you a leason, I included photo’s of myself posing like I was working.
Today I started on my first project inside my new shed. It’s really is great to have a room filled with everything you need. I only have to turn around to grab my supplies. I began building a garden bench I designed for my mother in law. We picked up the wood and I got to it right away. Everything went so smooth inside the work shed that I completed the frame to the bench in only and hour and a half. It went fast because of the new shed and also because I learned house to use cutlist wi...

New year, new projects and new ways to share. Twitter updates from the computer and phone have already (slightly) increased the activity over at my blog. Now that Christmas is unwrapped, the ghosts of Christmas presents present may reveal themselves without being spoilers. So I finally have fodder, if not the time, for some real posts.
