l just finished making this box for my cousin’s wife ,it was made of black walnut with spanish cedar surrounding the inside of the box with a removable divider and tray on top. The surrounding cedar and removable divider are unfinished so it will leave a mild scent of cedar, the tray on top is made of spanish cedar and cherry finished with two coats of wipe on poly and so is the box.

I’m not sure what to call this so if anyone has some suggestions? I’m open for new names.The dragon part is cut from 1/4 inch oak. The rest is 3/4 inch pine. A 120 volt neon light and switch in the back are from Radio Shack.

I just finished a 17”x23” maple/walnut cutting board. The board is 1 3/4” thick. This is only the 2nd board i have done. When i sand it down good and apply the oil what else do i do? The last time i did one i remember the grain rising after i put the oil on it. Do i just hit it lightly with a sanding block when this happens between coats?

Here's another paper bat decoration, a little more difficult than in the previous post. This origami design is by Protogenius, demonstrated here on YouTube. My attempt at it has a big head, small wings, and something is funky with his feet! But he's a bat, all right. The cool thing is this model is a glorified paper airplane and (sort of) flies, plus it'll hang upside down from a string stretched across a doorway because the feet fold over and function like hooks. This origami bat is made from a letter-sized sheet of paper. Follow along with the video tutorial, Part 1 and Part 2.

These two bottle holders are made from solid Purple Heart and Bloodwood laminated together. The pattern calls for 2” widths, but this was a special request from my dear old dad, so these holders are 3” widths. Finished with three coats of polyurethane and then buffed out. The center hole is 1 1/2” rather than 1 3/8” to accommodate larger bottles.

Hello Everyone!I have a dear friend who was just diagnosed with cancer. If you could all take a minute today and say a prayer for her. She is having a PET scan right now to see if the cancer has spread. We are praying that it hasn't and that she can just have surgery to remove the cancerous tumor. I believe in the power of prayer and I know that our Heavenly Father does hear us and answers us. Thank you so much everyone!Big hugs!Robyn

Some people are using 5 degree bits (+-) while others are using something else. Can someone give some insight to making this joint.

Place on the die as you see here with the corner fold at the top lined with the stem and leaving a little peek of the die pumpkin uncovered as you see in the right side of the fabric.Look closely. You do not want to cut the pumpkins out all of the way, you want to leave a little sliver showing. 4. Here you have your pumpkins. You can draw you a pumpkin and do the same thing with scissors. 5. Center your pumpkins on your background fabric and iron on.6. Sandwich your candle mat by having the background fabric, batting or insul-brite, and then your backing fabric.7. Blanket stitch or just take a running stitch around the pumpkins.8.. Cut your project down to 10" x 10". 9. Bind and you are done.EASY EASY!!!! Now you have a fun pumpkin decoration. jewels of advice
