Public Service Announcement:

The GOMBs model show is coming up on October 1 at the Chapelhow Legion in the North East. There'll be lots of really cool stuff on display, and this show is always fun (the award categories have a lot of humour). I've got a few builds to show off. Come on out for some harmless fun.

Does anyone here make, or know anyone who makes, custom carved wood signs? Looking to get a door sign made for a cabin...and not having a ton of luck searching online for anything locally done. Perhaps that's something one of you talented people do.

Hmmmm. It would depend on what you want. I don’t know anybody specific that does this. I’d be open to chat to see what options might be best for you. Maybe I could help steer you a direction?

Model show results from yesterday: Treasure Island wins for "Best Scottish Subject"!

Lots of amazing stuff on display at the Chapelhow Legion. I took about 80 photos, and I'll upload a bunch of them when I've got more time.

Another ship in a bottle done.

Haven't done one of these in ages and the bin of bottles was calling. This was a bit more of a challenge since the bottle was only a 100 ml, meaning I could really just do the ship two-dimensionally and it's meant to be viewed from one side only. The extra detail - cloth sails, raised aft and forecastles, and the cannons - made up for it. It wasn't without problems, but I'm calling it a warm-up for another, larger one. And it'll make for a nice gift for someone:

Made a Christmas decoration out of some clear cast acrylic, wrapped with some multi colour mini cluster lights:

Those boards are sick. I'm pretty sure I was gifted one of your boards that you custom built for a business (realtor).

One day I hope to become your competitor I want to get back into woodworking.

If anybody is downtown tomorrow, I’ll be taking part in a small holiday market in the base of Eighth Avenue Place from 11-2.

Come say hi!

Attempting a fun little decoration with some of the cutoff pieces of acrylic - cutting out some evergreen trees with my bandsaw.

Hopefully this qualifies as making
For the past couple of years I've put together calendars with my own photos to fundraise for conservation groups. This year I changed it up and collaborated with 12 other Alberta based photographers for 2023's calendar.

All proceeds donated to Alberta Wilderness Association.

Snagged a beautiful carving board from Surferguy the other day. The pictures don't do it justice. The thing is smooth as glass, and put together incredibly well. I got one of the Chevron style ones. Maybe he can post a pic of it.

Thanks Surferguy!

Live edge Walnut base - I picked up a small offcut from Black Forest.

Filled with Green LEDs

Bandsawed remaining offcut pieces of acylic into trees.

Still have to sand the base a bit and than add some lacquer.

Total Investment - about $40
