Leftover Pictures from Last Year

trailer trash

I found a bunch of pictures that I had never posted last year I thought I would put on the blog.  The first was a small garbage can (not my original idea) that I made for my dad’s camper.  I teased it here.

Next were two process pictures I took while making the wooden Zelda masterswords.  One was routing the blade edges and the other was the carnage that resulted from their production.

Christmas tree bracing

The final picture is of the repair job I had to do for our Christmas tree.  My initial build was sturdy enough for me to gently move it about, but did not survive so well from our movers last summer.  I took the whole thing apart and added a brace to the entire length of every level, plus a handle to pick the thing up with.

Christmas Kitten

This was our first Christmas with our youngest cat, who was having the best time attacking the pile of wrapping paper Christmas morning, and playing in a box we threw some in.  He’s quite entertaining.

Driftwood Heart

This was a gift that honestly got finished on Christmas day for my wife.  We visited some friends for Thanksgiving on the gulf coast, and brought home a bunch of little driftwood pieces.  This will be a cute reminder around the house of that wonderful trip.

Turned Trees

A couple of the gifts we wanted to make this year were some turned wooden trees.  This meant I had to save up and purchase a lathe, which I’m still learning how to work on.  But I have been able to turn out (get it) a few trees that we gave out as Christmas gifts.  The stars on top were carved out separate.

LEGO Christmas Train

When the LEGO Christmas train set was released I ran out to our local LEGO store certain that they would sell-out in minutes.  I may have been a bit too worried because I was the only one there when they opened.  The train wouldn’t fit on the buffet with the village so we decided to set it up to circle our tree instead.

Christmas LEGOs

It’s been a pretty busy last few months (to include a few weeks were I was under the weather) but I thought I’d get back to posting.  A ton of the things I’ve been working on lately were presents so I couldn’t post until now anyway.  This is the layout for our LEGO Christmas village this year, with the North Pole off in the distance.  We’re running out of room…

The Santa’s workshop set came with an extra beard, so we made a senior elf, and it also came with an extra red ball from the “North Pole” sign so we made our young reindeer into Rudolph.

This is what we did with this year’s Chirstmas Train set.

A Gift to the World

A Gift to the World

This week’s bulletin doodle.  Last night our church had our Children’s Christmas Cantata, which was absolutely adorable.  It was a simple reminder of God’s free gift to all of us.

For an added bonus, below is the cantata backdrop I made for the auditorium and our digital signage, last week’s bulletin doodle of Vader throwing down the imperial march, and a picture of our wooden Christmas tree after we got all the ornaments and lights on.

No Fluff Tree

No Fluff Tree

Due to family allergies we’ve always had a fake Christmas tree and my wife and I unanimously despise fluffing that stinker.  So this year we decided to make a rustic wooden tree to use in the house  instead.  I’ll post some of the process photos later this week when I get time.
