  • Christmas is coming!

    The heading is somewhat obvious!
    I know lots of you are making Christmas presents, it goes hand in hand with scrolling.
    This year I made a couple of nativities, a segmented welcome sign, a keychain, and I am almost finished a strumstick, There are still a few days left, I may even start another project . I like to beat myself up!

    What projects are you making for Christmas this year.

      Git R done!

      I've got two more to finish up before Christmas. Another Basket made from Bass and a Farm seen w/tractor.

      My wife's work Christmas party is not until January, so I've got a little time for that one yet. But it would be nice if she would tell me what I'm suppose to make!!!!

      Outside that, I'd like to get a few odd and end things finished up before I start cutting away for the spring and summer booth time.

            i got evected by momma, i was taking the christmas tree spot.

            guess ill purchase the rest of all of my gifts this year, after i hunt down every speck of sawdust.

            had plans to supply for my 2 grandchildren,
            2 play kitchens
            1 toddler workbench with toy tool storage
            2 BIG upright toy boxes.
            one like a 4 drawer dresser - wardrobe for them babydolls...
            and another like a kenworth tractor. w/behind the windshield display & under the hood storage.
            -

            its nice to think i could have made them all, but i think i procrastanated too long for this year.. besides theres always birthdays...

              Finished??? LOLOLOLOL. I finished the last of my custom orders for customers yesterday so I'm finally getting to start on a few gifts. Two jewelry boxes, a Christ Child Portrait, some Christmas ornaments and if time permits, a Disney Princesses portrait for my daughter, a victorian hearts frame for my wife, and a train table for my son. Unfortunately, my own family always gets the short end when it comes to handmade items. I have to take care of customers first.

                I really do think it is best to have a plan when starting a project.
                The guitar/strumstick I am working on has taken on a life of its own.
                Everything that could go wrong did
                I just have to say, lucky for me it is for a 6 year old who loves music.
                I have the greatest respect for luthiers, an craft that is underrated.
                Someday I hope to take a course on luthiery but for now I will scratch away the wood and see what comes out.
                But next time I will have a plan

                  carl,

                  is this strumstick an attempt to be real?

                  i ask becuse it looks as if you have real tuning knobs on it.?

                  i heard mention of strumsticks, but i was thinking of a dowell turned with bumps on it. ?

                  daah!

                    Yes those are real tuning pegs.
                    This strumstick is made from a 1x2 piece of cherry.
                    A wide slot is cut in the bottom and the slot is spread wider to make the sound box.
                    I used BB Ply on this one because it is for a little boy who may be a little more aggressive.
                    The frets are from a ukulele and I cut the slots with a #6 blade. A great fit.
                    The strumstick is WAY TOO LONG. I should have planned better.
                    The young man likes dragons and that's why I made the dragon body to slide over the original strumstick.
                    I would certainly do things different next time.

                      ornaments

                      Carl,
                      Thanks for the advice on reducing the width of my files. I hope this
                      will look ok.Here are my ornaments I have been working on this month
                      They are made from Walnut,Mahogany and Poplar. I learned a lot and
                      made more than enough mistakes but I really enjoyed it.All comments
                      are welcome.
                      Merry Christmas

                            Very nicely done. The ones with the year in them are always special and make good sellers. Any time you add a the year or a name just makes them that much more desirable. Keep up the good work and look forward to more photos now that you have the photo thing figured out. Happy Scrolling.

                                A couple of months ago I ordered the Large Pegas Scroll Saw Table for my EX21 from Denny which I received about a week later. I installed it immediately and made a few test cuts. Since then I have been busy with several Urban renewal projects around house as well putting the yard to bed for the winter....

                                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.

                                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.
