  • Seurat Shadow Box

    Sitting in my armchair earlier this month I noticed a little 4”x4” shadowbox on our bookshelf with a multi layered pine tree scene. I thought it was really basic and heck I could do that! But I wanted to make something a little more elaborate. Given that Valentines day was coming I chose my wife’s favorite work of art. I thought she’d either love it or think I was a horrible person for ruining something she loved. I mean, maybe it’s the use of colors that makes the piece for her.

  • Making Rubber Stamps

    So, the idea of making a custom rubber stamp came up the other day.

  • Chainmail bracelet

    I watched a pile of YouTube videos of people making chainmail and methods for making rings. So I took a wooden dowel and drilled a hold thru it about 1 inch from the end. I chucked that end in a drill. I stripped a long piece of scrap house wire and pushed the end into the hole. I grabbed it with a set of welding gloves and started the drill. When the windings reached the end of the dowel, maybe 10-12 inches I stopped. I snipped the part where it turned to go in the hole and I could reverse the drill and back the dowel out of the windings. Then I just went along in a straight line snipping off rings with a wire cutter. Using what seemed like the most basic form of connecting them I completed a bracelet.
