  • some little things

    here are some little things we have been working on:
    God Bless Our Home in Spanish for you my fellow scrollers.
    this plate was a gift for our neighbour, there are like four types of wood in there.

    this next project was a perpetual calendar
    the number are vinyl stickers, i tried to cut the number but could not with the letters so i decided to do it like that. i will have preffered<<ahem>> used a laser to cut the numbers and letters but that would have been too expensive for what i had plans to charge for that: about 10 USD

    desktop decoration
    i gave this one to the guys who run a local hardware store, that i buy from, they are quite helpful and besides, they give me credit!, dont know if thats a good idea. anyway, the saw actually moves and makes a rattle noise with the wrench, i did not planned that till i was putting it all together, otherwise i would have put a little motor behind the saw to make it more interesting.

    Desktop Set
    this one was commissioned for a local government forestry agency, they always want their logo and the names of the persons who the gift are going to, so we have to burn them with laser, its expensive but they paid so no problem, whenever we can we sneak the scrolled logo, like in the top of the box. and besides, they deal with lumber, (they are the ones who certified the forests to be cut) and sometimes we get little pieces of timber from there.

          thank you for all your nice comments!
          and yes, the guys at the hardware store loved it, in fact they were playing with the saw movement and keep doing it till i left there, later my brother show up to the shop and they show it to him, he told me that they guy were still moving that saw/wrench when he left. so i think they liked that.

              yup, those pens are usually given when someone buys the pen holder, as i can not sell them as a normal pen, as they will drip and stain the shirts, i made them with the pen holder so that way people can have them in their desk.

                Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

                Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

                Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...

                Jim, if all else fails, try this link://

                I've bought lovely aspen and Balm of Gilead rounds from this site to use for live edge bowls. The owner, Rene Guay (pronounced "Rainey") could probably fabricate something...
