  1. Design Process - My approach (Design Developement)

    After sitting on the idea for a while, I decided it stall had merit. So the next step is to draw it up. I tend to work in 3"=1'-0" scale for a project of this size. I had initially conceived of this as a small table to sit by the couch that LOML might put her magazines or laptop on. I first drew it up as if it were right for that purpose.

  2. Excalibur EX-21

    i have had my new/used Excalibur EX-21 scroll saw for about a month now and im finally starting to get the hang of it.

  5. Changing seasons, hairy legs, and a chair

    Worthless Dribble:
    Here in the northwoods of Wisconsin XC ski trails are starting to get soft, the birkebeiner has concluded, roads are still too icy to bike, and our dictator (err governor) has managed to divide a pretty easy going population.
