My dear wife seen a picture of a similarly painted chickadee on the web. She liked it so much she painted one herself. The ‘canvas’ are scraps of pallet board cutoffs nailed to a longer board in behind. She did a great job for first time painting scenery and birds.
After lunch, it was still raining and heavy at times. Best thing to do is spend the day indoors making sawdust. I made some small angels to go along with the larger angels made earlier this week.
A couple of people contacted me about combining the design on my wooden maps with cribbage boards. Worth a shot I figured. It was only when I realized I had to drill 361 holes did I begin to understand the amount of work involved.
With a few simple boards from the wood pile, I made a couple of these primitive craft angels today. Continue reading Primitive Angels
Today we finally got to the Nova Scotia wood maps. These are special because we went the extra step of applying the provincial tartan of Nova Scotia as a background. Continue reading Nova Scotia wood maps with provincial tartan
A couple of projects on the workbench today. A trio of Santa Claus made from balsam fir logs, a couple wood maps to frame out and a folding bench picnic table.
Another new project on the table. Red, white and blue. Should be an easy guess as too what its for. But I bet you will be wrong!
You’ll have to wait and see.
In the workshop today, this time making a natural wooden map. That means no paint. I just wanted to see what it would be like. I have to say, I do like it!
A lady contacted me after seeing the wood maps of Nova Scotia and asked if I could just make a Cape Breton map. Absolutely! See more here.
My dear wife found a picture of a wood wreath and asked if I could make one. “Sure”, I said. Truth be told, I’ve never made one before.
There’s always a first time for everything. 🙂
