This first photo today is one I forgot to put in the last blog. I wanted to show the doors. I really am not quite sure of the significance of this particular design on a church door. It is what is on the pattern though and I think it looks nice. I had debated on changing it to something different, maybe a cross. Maybe I will on the next one, but I decided to leave it alone on this one though. The first order of business today was to add supports for the roof. I decided to use much beefier sup...
As promised, I gave my little bunnies a new look with a dash of some pretty pastel colors. I had mentioned that when I cut these little guys out the other day that I stacked them, so I got double the mileage out of my cutting time. The wood used here is 3/16” maple. That makes it an ideal project to stack-cut. I attached the two layers of wood using hot melt glue in the waste areas of the corners and the added thickness gave me a lot more control when cutting these precise swirls....
Even though Keith and I usually don’t feel like we are adding a lot of new patterns, it seems that our product line is growing by leaps and bounds. Our “loose” goal is to put out a newsletter about twice a month introducing our new designs and letting people know what we are up to and while I thought that would be something that would be difficult to maintain, I find that the newsletter are never short of new items or announcements. I guess we are both pretty busy. I rea...
Right now, i am in the process of making a candle holder for my wife. I am using some scrap oak for the legs, and quite possibly some maple for the tops and sides. I have gotten the legs cut and sanded, but need to get the material for the tops and sides. I will post pictures as soon as I finish cutiing the rest of it out and get it assembled. Sorry been so long……..... finished the project and gave it to my wife for her birthday……. she took it to work and I forgot to take pictu...
I had to do some errands yesterday and that took up most of my day. I also was able to meet up with a dear friend from my painting group in Bear River that I haven’t seen in about a year. It was a really good day on lots of levels. My bags arrived and I will be shipping out the second batch of skaters this morning. It will bring closure to another project and allow me the time to focus on finishing up the bird patterns today and getting them into a packet and up on the site. the ...
In this video I continue what I started in the last episode 34. I also cut out some shapes to show how easy it is to use a scroll saw. This scroll saw is a task force scroll saw and I got it for around $90. www.kostasworkshop.blogspot.com
I had posted some issues and problems with the lower blade clamp on my Poter Cable saw. I, also, stated that I was going to try a hex screw as a replacement, which I did. It worked find and the blade was more than secure however I think it contributed to the vibration on the saw. So I went back to the plastic headed thumb screw supplied with the say however is created a wooden turning knob like the one Steve Good has on the upper clamp of his saw. Now when I insert a new blade I will ...
It always feels so good when I finish accomplishing my deadlines. Whether self-imposed or work that I have to get done for others, I try to treat them with equal importance and prioritize them accordingly. Lately it seems that I have been spinning many different plates. I know some of you who know me don't see that as being very unusual – and it reality it is not – but sometimes it just kind of gets to me when there isn't a break for a while. I think...
