“People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” Zig Ziglar (1926 – )...Motivational author and speaker Miraculous Staircase of Santa Fe NMThe Miraculous Staircase of the Loretto Chapel located in Santa Fe New Mexico is an amazing piece of carpentry and woodworking. If this work of art were built today, the reaction of people would be the same as it was when this set of stairs was completed...
Though this has started from a new design THE POINT TO POINT and furthermore, I started building up the box. I am new to this veneering work. I am enjoying this. Maybe I can now realize some of my designs that really requires a lot of precision cutting. Using knife on straight cutting is not new to me. My father taught me a lot of techniques in cutting straight lines with paper. He had a bookbinding equipment that we normally cut the papers using a big knife which is specially sharpen...
Well, I started the challenge to build this point to point. I followed Martyn and David (Patron) how to do it. However a slight change.

I’ve been desperate for anywhere to find wood, or Holz. I try and find simple wood and I can’t find any! I’m getting desperate! This is how low I’ve sunk. I currently was in the PX looking for some things for the kitchen, and I found aromatic cedar hangs.

HELP ME GET MY FIX!!! :D
