Custom woodworking and art
I built a sand tray/coffee table for a deserving therapist that evidently uses the sand along with miniatures to help kids and adults express the inexpressible.
My Macbook had abruptly stopped working about 4 months ago so since then I have been blogging from my phone which has been making it a tad bit difficult to post on this thing I call a blog. Last weekend following some glorious computer nerds blog I was guided through a thorny path of hard resets. One of them worked and here I am typing on my old pal it’s good to be back I hope it got some rest while he was gone. I promise no more questionable sites……..
I have an old singer treadle sewing machine that has been falling apart for some time. The sewing machine inside of it has missing parts and the cabinet portion of it has all but delaminated its veneer. We have been using it as a place to hold our tv audio equip not much pedal powered sewing going on over here. So I have decided to take the cabinet portion off of the beautiful steel stand. Like most old tools the detail and craftsmanship they put into them is incredible and the ornate stand will make a great base for a new table and if I can figure out all of the logistics I am going to incorporate the foot pedal into the design/action of the table. Maybe even generate some power from it………Stay tuned
After my experiment with the dirt in my garden from such post as “The wonderful world of dirt”. We did our best to amend the soil and pick plants that could flourish in our specific (shitty) dirt. So a few weeks ago we planted by opening up a wad of seed packets and wildly throwing them about in our rows figuring maybe if we approached it more casually we might have better luck. Only problem is we don’t know exactly what we have because we smartly threw out all of the packets.
