Well, I got to help with the move itself which took me out of town for a day, and I didn’t have to stare at the still-drying letters all day! :-) When I got back, they were finally dry enough. So, after a good nap yesterday, to rest these old bones, I started by removing the tape and positioning the words on the sign.There’s still a little stick-um left from the tape on the bottom, and that helps after eyeballing them into place. They don’t slip and slide around. Since the w...
My new 1.5 inch flush trim router bit from Whiteside Router bits was purchased with a generous amount of glue covering it (to prevent rust, and from cutting yourself). How might I get this glue off?
Well – I am trying to decide – which directions do I want to go next. Just can’t decide. First of all – where am I. 1. Currently in two craft malls and quite frankly – SALES SUCK! 2. Going to an Arts and Craft show this weekend and hoping for the best.3. Posting everything I make on Facebook and lots of lookers but very few sales.4. Thinking about ETSY but have not made the jump – just can’t decide. Second – what do I want to do.1. I want ...
I made good headway yesterday. Although I still have some of the pattern packet writing to do, I did get through much of it and I also got some other important things completed. I finished drawing and cutting the charm pieces for my Wright Inspired candle tray. I think the charms are as cool as the tray itself. They would make key chain tags or even a necklace. I found a piece of thin walnut that was as dark as the tray and it looked pretty nice. It took me only about half an hour to cut...
Work has been incredibly busy of late. I mean that in a good way. I don’t always get what I intend to get done, but it feels good to have a growing business and interact so much with so many interesting people. I sent out the notices regarding the site update on Sunday. That has seemed stir up a great amount of activity. I say this like it is unusual because I can remember not so long ago when sales on the site were almost non-existent. I am quite happy that we took the time to ...
Finnished the Plaque! Well it is finnally done. I kept getting side tracked with other things around the house. This is going to a dear freind of my wife and mine. He has been running the center for the blind in Yuma,AZ for the last 25 years. He is retireing on June 27th. This startd as an “Unknown Wood / Unknown Project” and turned into a dedication. I want to thank everyone who helped this design come into being. Thank You. The Angel is made up of the following woods...
I really had a full and busy day yesterday. I had a lot of fun, too. There are days when my job takes me in many directions at one time and everything is manageable. Those are the days when I go to bed feeling like I really accomplished a lot and have everything under control. I hope there are many more of them to follow. I like to talk about these things because it is a time when all the work and experience comes into play. I want to show people that there is hope for having a busine...
A good friend and I were doing one of our very frequent Think Tanks (sounds better than just talking) and we wanted to do something a little different than just typical scroll saw fretwork style cuttings. Basically we came up with an idea to make typical fretwork a bit more exciting. Simply by overlaying shaped pieces of wood on top of a portrait style piece of fretwork. We decided that I would come up with a pattern and She would do the hard work of cutting them out and making the pieces, th...
A couple of nice chisels.A rusty but elegant looking hacksaw.A 16” Delta-Rockwell scroll saw.
Well I new this wouldn’t last. but it was great as long as it did, What I’m talking about is my wood sorce was a friend of mine worked at a factory that received there inventory with 1/8”, 1/4” and 1/2” plywood, and so he was able to pick up truck loads of it. Believe it or not, it was really nice wood. Beautiful grain, and I coulkd actually fit the pictures to the wood. Would you believe I lost his Phone number I have been trying to get ahoad of him, to get anot...
