  • Something New for Me

    As some of you know, I tend to design slightly detailed portraits as a rule. I'm trying to branch out a little bit from basic portraits. This was a Christmas gift for one of my nieces that I had to deliver today. I used 3/8" oak with 1/4" oak for the backer with through tenon joinery. I had a tough time getting a decent picture of it. One is an overall view and the other is looking at the side.
    My niece was thrilled (thank goodness).
    One more gift to go, yay!

      Thanks Dale. Ya gotta luv them great Danes, some of them get so big you could put a saddle on them and ride 'em.
      I think I'll play with the photo of it to see how it looks without the bottom. I had 2 things in mind doing them that way, to add stability to it when hung and to keep it symmetrical. Thanks for the suggestion!

                Thanks all for the kind words.
                To answer your question Ian, yes, the horse is one of my patterns (designed specifically for this project).

                        Back in the late 90's I bought a Incra 2000 Miter gauge. Incredibly precise. The problem was that it only adjusted in one direction, It rarely gets used. It locks in to half degrees. More recently I bought a Kreg fence which has a pin that precisely locates the frequently used angles.
                        That is...

                        The crafters market here in Kerrville, TX is $25 per 10x10 spot per event. We sell 8 months out of the year, Jun/Jul is too hot, and Jan/Feb is too cold. No insurance requirement but we do have to show a sales tax permit and collect sales tax.

                        Personally I would never sell in a venue that...

                        The one I do is under a pavilion on County Property, about 60 spaces. They run 4 “seasons”, spring 6 weeks, summer May - mid September, fall sept to Mid November, and holiday fare Mid November until end of year. Cost is $75 per season, per day as they are open Saturday and Sunday. If you are called...

                        Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

                        Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

                        Now,...
