  • Trail Mix Collection

    Well we've finally made the decision to start sharing some of the pictures of our latest series which we've called "Trail Mix". The series currently has animals from North America with our particular twist on their look. We're also working on various ways of doing the backer boards which you can see on the Highbou project. Feedback, comments and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I love that piece, The textures and colours really work well together.
    This is what separates the craft from art.

    I like the fact that the piece doent need framing.

          WOW! I like 'em all. How big are they? New approach to intarsia/segmentation that I would love to try. Way to go ladies (is that PC?).

            Oh Mooner. Giggle.

            Thank you for your kind comments on our work. We are having fun with these characters in Trail Mix and I have just come from the shop where I cut out another moose (we have two in the collection so far) and Sue is working on some cougars as I type this. The need for coffee was stronger than the need for more sawdust on my part.

            My daughter, who often reads the forums on woodworking, tells me about your post. Then laughed at your comment about Sue and I being ladies, said "If he could only see you both now Mom". In her view, as I come out of the shop for coffee and sees me in workboots, jeans and jean shirt over tshirt, lightly garnished in sawdust making me look grey (and a tell tale sigh I wasn't wearing my bandana) complete with new wrinkles from my dust mask. Apparently no lady. Giggle.

            Think Sue fairs better on that title, the grand old dame of Chrestensen Burghout Designs, wears the grey hair well.

            Again, thanks Mooner.

              I checked out We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

              Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

              He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver. I made a pot of chili on Sunday and got 6 meals out of it! As for payback, I’m getting a new shed in the spring! I had to do my flap...

              We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
