What an incredible weekend I had! It was a combination of accomplishing, relaxing, beautiful weather, good food, a Saturday night “date” and even some beach thrown in. I can think of little more that would have made it much better. It started off like any other weekend. However, the weather was absolutely supreme. It was sunny and warm, without being either too hot or humid, and it made Saturday just an all around pleasant day. Keith had to run into work for a couple of hour...
After what seemed like an eternity that I have been away from the scroll saw, I was finally able to get back at it and do some cutting yesterday. You would think that being a designer, I would spend several days a week at the saw. But reality isn’t quite like that, as there are so many aspects to running the business that takes up time (not to mention – the drawing part!) that it is only occasionally that I get to do so. Actual cutting is only a small piece of the puzzle – a...
So I’m starting another project for a going away plague for a fellow Soldier. It will be a shadow box with two crossed replica harpers ferry pistols… felt backdrop… a couple other features. I’m making it out of Red Oak… and now I’m at that critical point of to stain or put a natural finish.

Sorry for such a long delay on this piece. After I had this piece done I decided that it needed something so I added the chip carved folding wings which can changed it from a 24” square to a 36” diamond. I cut the folding leaves so the inner rosette could be seen when closed. I spent 8 hours cutting, fitting, and hinging the walnut to the panels. I have somewhere around 300-400 hours in this piece.
I am new here and I am really interested if I might pick up a few skills when it comes to wood works. I hope I could share a bit of the things that I know or will discover that is connected with wood works. Recently , I discovered a site when my uncle ordered a plaque, I think it was really nice, they offer different hand carved plaques, shadow boxes and more. This is one of those plaques: I’m not that good with my hands,and If you have any tips for me on what can I do so t...
