Thread: Bits n Bobs

Cheers Dennis.
Nothing selfish about not wanting crappy weather.
I, however, am more than willing to share it with anyone who wants it.
Some parts of the country are well on the way to being very white already, and it's supposedly heading this way too.
 
The craft fair yesterday was the first one the village had held for a long time, and my first ever, so I'm not too disheartened by the turnout.
The main thing for me was for people to see what I can do, get some business cards out and become a 'known name' as I only moved here 9 months ago.
 
Plenty of interest, plenty of cards takenbut not enough people with more than a few quid in their pockets as they weren't really sure of what was going to be on offer.
 
Next time round it'll be marketed & advertised much better.
 
The good thing about having so much unsold is it helps to sort out some Christmas pressies.

I tried to turn a snowman.
I failed miserably.
Looks more like Stan the Homepride/Bero man (remember him??)!!! lol
 
Can't even bring myself to show you the pic of it.
 
Ah, well.
Another attempt another day.

Craft fair didn't go as well as hoped, but there were a few factors conspiring against us.
Mainly the weather!!!!
South Ayrshire today is being battered by strong winds, torrential rain & some big outbursts of hail.
Only the brave (or stupid!!) would be willing to venture out in it today.
 
Anyway, some things did sell amongst the few hardy souls who braved it all and came along.
 
Here's a couple of pic's of my wee table before it got covered in fingerprints..
Not too bad for just over a week's work from a guy with a broken wrist (IMHO!! lol)

Busy busy for a change today & managed to get a few pieces turned.
 
Usual apologies for pic quality.
 
Sorry if too many pic's, but I'd rather put them all up as I do them.
 
Comments etc welcome as always.

Cheers Dave. I wish it was.
 
These are for a craft fair to raise funds for my football team.
 
Not even started shopping for gifts yet.
Might just wait n see what doesn't sell. lol.

Again, sorry about the poor photo's.

Thread: veneering
28/11/2011 16:20:04
Hi small shed.
 
I only ever tried veneering when I was at college, but the way I was shown was to do it all before the final build unless you want to cover the joints.
 
My own opinion is to do whatever you find the easiest & gives you the best result.

Dennis, those are great looking.
 
I'm gonna try some of these too (minus the threads!!) since I have a craft fair this weekend.
Hopefully they'll end up looking at least half as good as yours.

Managed to get a bit of olive ash, and thought it might look nice as a lidded box.
Lots of features to work around, so I'm pretty chuffed I didn't split it open completely.
 
Unfortunately the photo's aren't the greatest, but they give an idea of what I've tried to achieve.

Thread: Cutting board
21/11/2011 21:33:04
Hi Alan,
 
I don't have the greatest amount of experience with chopping boards, but I made one a while back and used waterproof Gorilla woodglue.
Still going strong and none of the joints have even thought about failing yet.

Had a little bit of spalted left over from having done a couple of boxes, and though it might look nice as a bottle stop.
 
If nothing else, it's different.

Dennis, Sam, Simon, Les, Bill - Thanks guys.
 
I like the idea of the snowmen moneyboxes , very festive type thingies.
Tealights are a good idea too.
 
I too like the spalted bowl. Mrs kinda hoping it doesn't sell cos she wants to claim it.
Won't be doing many pieces like that again til the wrist is sorted though - kinda painful with the amount of work needed to hollow it out.
Not complaning though as I really enjoyed seeing it take shape and very pleased with the result.
 
Will add some more pictures as I go along.

Hi all,
 
I've been asked to make a few things to be sold at a fundraiser for my amateur football team (yes, the one I broke my wrist with).
 
So far I've come up with these pieces, but looking for some help with ideas, remembering my limited abilty at present.
 
Any help would be very welcome, as are any comments.

Thanks guys.
 
Alan, I never thought of that so I'll look for some. Thanks for the advice.
 
Bill, I think your right with it being against "artistic rules".
Bugger the rules, let's stay creative!! Lol.
