  • Not Really Bragging

    Hi folks, I'm not really bragging here, just thought I'd share some pics of the stuff I've made for Christmas gifts.

    This angel candle holder is for my best friend Ali and her significant other Jim. It's a pattern from Berry Basket, I found in one of their surprise packs.

    The bedroom lamps are for my daughter Jen & hubby Paul. This pattern is from Lora S. Irish and are featured in SSW # 23 They're suppose to be lanterns, but I turned them into lamps.

    The desktop frames are for the young girl who works in my office, she's getting married in June. That's her and her finance on the left, the baby is just a generic that came with the frame. This is also a Berry Basket pattern.

    This Rosemailing Clock has gone to Scotland, to the mother of one of my co-workers. It looks more Irish then Scottish, but greens her favorite color!

    Thanks for looking
    I hope everyone has a great Christmas

      Everything is VERY nice, and certainly brag-worthy! Those lamps caught my eye, too, very unusual.

        I agree with Pete. If I had made those I'd be popping buttons on my shirt left and right!

              Thanks All for the kind words. I just used a piece of regular paper. The lighting fixture is very small and only takes a 15w bulb, so I don't think there's any risk of fire. We had them on for quite awhile and they didn't generate any heat.

                        I upgraded back in early winter. I got one with both a solid state as well as hard drive. I couldn't move over my Office 2010 because I'd bought it as a download (which was still functioning just fine for what I used it for) and I never switched it to subscription because of the cost. The old download...

                        I just picked up a couple of new heavy handled bowl gauges. 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch from two friends that have tool supply businesses.
                        Our next Scroll saw club challenge will be segmented scroll saw bowls. I don't sand my bowls, too time consuming, so I will be turning them after glue up.

                        One problem with upgrading was that many of the programs I use are now subscription based. That really frosts my butt I finally accepted the fact that I normally renew my software frequently anyway the cost difference is negligible.

                        I did not go with a solid state drive, probably...

                        Actually, I think mine is more than 10 years old. And what brand would that be? Remember who you’re talking to here about computers.

                        If you buy a new computer you want to get a solid state hard drive. No moving parts to break or wear out....
