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 ...

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 ...
Hey everyone! It has been crazy! I’ve launched my own website, expanded products, paid my taxes and continue to make Spud Woodworks a real opportunity for myself and my family. I did hit a rut for awhile, it was difficult going day in and day out just sitting there making the same thing over again. But it dawned on me, I can always find opportunity to improve a product, grow its customer base, and make more varied styles and editions. Over all its been exciting. Really exciting! A...
QUESTION: HOW VERSATILE IS A LARGE BLANKET CHEST OR BOX? 15 Century Chest above My opinion…EXTREMELY! Antique Pennsylvania Chest above Here are my thoughts on the simple, large, well built CHEST, dovetailed nicely or fastened with glue and screws. By the way, the items shown here I would not dare call “simple” as the craftsmen have certainly taken time and care and worked hard and meticulously for which I have much respect. 1. The Toy Box2. The Family Blanket ...
So I finished a small laminated box and needed to cut the top off. What did I forget to do? Change out to the re-saw blade!! Oh man…what a bummer and a hard $40.00 lesson to learn. I over heated my small 3/8 blade and burned up both my band-saw tires. What a mess, the tires got so hot that the blade literally fused with them. Had to cut the whole mess off with snippers. I guess I was due, had not even cut a finger or broken anything in close to a year! Well, good news is the band-saw is...
