As I am writing this morning, the sky is a very light blue and it is filled with puffy clouds. The bottoms of the clouds are an incredible peachy/orange hue that blends into the peachy/grey tops. If I painted a picture like this, some would think it looked ‘fake’, as the colors are so unusual. But it is there and it is a beautiful sight to wake up to. I can feel already that it will be a good day. I made pretty good progress yesterday on my project. The second version of th...
Here are a few pictures, from the past couple of days, of the sequence of making moldings and of them put up. I don’t know how large fancy moldings are made but this was my solution to doing it. The ogee’s are made with one router bit then stacked on top of each other. The large partial cove moldings are made with Rockler’s table saw crown molding maker. It is a nicely made jig that lets you set up your table saw to cut into wood using the round blade to gouge out a large co...
Here is the 3rd part of making a face relief. I’ll not write to much, just enjoy the short movie ;) MOVIE
To me, one of the best things I find with designing is that the only rules that I have to follow are my own. I think that is one of the main reasons that I became a designer in the first place. I never really followed along with rules. It isn’t that I am not able to do so. Usually I am pretty good at reading instructions and following them to the letter. . My friend Cari and I were “experts” at doing things like putting together projects, toys and furniture (you know ...
My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1167: Wonderful Progress (And a Bonus Mini-Lecture!) ;)
I had another busy day yesterday, although it was a good one. Not only did I spend the afternoon cutting out my new ornaments on my new Excalibur (which was simply just FUN!) but I also spent the morning getting to work on my next pattern for another ornament set. The set that I am working on (SLD445 Traditional Damask Ornaments) is not for the faint of heart. I wanted something that would push the envelope a little bit and I think these designs qualify. I wanted to make them a bit sm...
Time to see if I can do two projects at once. I started work on a shoe shine box today. Sometimes I am thankful that I can have awesome wood with which to work. I threw a little denatured alcohol on it to get an idea of what it will look like. I glued up the panels and dimensioned the external pieces.
Hello friends, This time i want to show u how i made an arbour. I will try to show it in steps. It will be a lot of steps ;)In the beginning i had to made a project. I based just on a picture of completed work, so i had to project all of it (roof, floor, walls, connetions, ...). This was the first time for me to do such a things, and make it. I wasn’t easy to do. But with every day that passed, i gained a lot of new experience. The woods i used:- Fir wood- Pine wood- Larch wood- Oak ...
the topp right corner of a doorway portal in work, this is a offspin style of the 1600 Century dragonstyle that have developed in the Family, its strongly influenced by the plantelements from the accantus, witch also came to norway a bare 100 years later, and is besides the 1000 Century dragonstyle(eks urnes stavchurch) and the 1600 Century style from the new romance era(With masters like Kinsarvik and Dagestad). The same portal, but now in its right Place, only the Oils witha tint of ...
Good day is a day with good work. This time i want to show some of projects with carved letters. This kind of work needs a few things:- time- patient- sharp chisels- patient- certain hand- patient, patient, patient…The fun thing in this artcraft is that, there is no place for mistake. If one move will be done badly, then all letter is gone. The edges of letter must be done perfectly. It’s a lot of work to make your hand, moves so precisely, but it can be done. This project is a...
For the last five years I have given Blank Christmas tree Ornaments to the local Grade school across from me. My GrandChildrenn has been going over there and I still have three going over there and one at another grade school. I do this for them to paint and keep for there own, I know not all children celebrate Christmas but that does stop the schools and everywhere else from decorating so I figure that while I made them to sell, I would give them to my grandchildrens classes, well that grew ...
