  • Gill and Carl, I blame you for this one

    You two have been raving so much about the book Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain that I went and bought it today.
    Maybe I'll finally progress beyond birds and cats, hehehe.

    I know you wont regret it Kevin.
    The book isnt so much about drawing as it is about observing. I really enjoy it.

      I got it this weekend as well...

      Did you all make your own viewfinder/crosshair setup or did you buy one?

        I made my own, although they're not necessary at the outset.

          Gees Bob, you're way ahead of me, don't give away the plot, LOL. I'm also in the middle of 2 Dean Koontz novels and am reading Duginske's bandsaw handbook after a little oops with my bandsaw.

              Hey Kev, I LOVE Koontz...I've read almost all of his books. What is this "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" book you guys mentioned??

                Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain is a great book by Betty Edwards.

                She has a new edition out now I am not sure what the difference is but here is her webpage

                    My current bedside reading is "The Boy Mechanic: 200 Classic Things to Build" which is a collection of ancient articles from Popular Mechanics magazine. The folding boat and the "house made from poles" have to be seen to be believed.

                    It really ought to be called: "Things for Carl Must Do"...

                      I think I have that one Chris along with The Boys Book of Mechanical Models. Published in 1917.

                      There is a really cool remote telegraph machine.
                      You write on a paper with a pencil fastened to pulleys. A machine in a remote location has the same pencil and pulley system and writes what you do at the same time.

                      And to think that Yahoo thought they were innovative!

                        Nice work. I truly admire all the projects that you share and I truly envy the fact that you finish what you start. What is your secret?

                        Thanks, Kim. I'll show that to my husband but since he has 2 surgeries coming up I doubt that will be on his to do list. The place we buy wood from air dries the wood for a year, than finishes with kiln drying....

                        will8989, We made a drying kiln out of a plan we saw on youtube. We took a 6-Tier Commercial Grade Heavy Duty Steel Wire Shelving Unit that we got at lowes, wrapped it in 1 inch foam insulation board and put two heat bulbs in the bottom, we have holes at the top and bottom to let the moisture out. We...
