We decorated our Christmas tree and I had these little tiny Looney Tune ornaments left over. Instead of hanging them on the tree, which is full of decorations already, I thought it would be neat to hang them on their own tree. So I cut out a tree shape with a piece of hardboard and put the ornaments on their very own tree!
Merry Christmas everyone!!!

I thought it would be super cool to make Christmas stockings out of wood! So I gathered a bunch of wood and printed off a stocking shape and went to town!
Here are the verses I put on the back of each stocking. I chose verses that talk about gift that God gives us since that is what Christmas is all about. His gift to us! If you are wondering how to receive his gift see the verses below or send me an email and I can help. email@example.com
On Gibby’s: 2 Corinthians 9:15 (NCV) Thanks be to God for his gift that is too wonderful for words.
On Wally’s: Ephesians 2:8 (NCV) I mean that you have been saved by grace through believing. You did not save yourselves; it was a gift from God.
On mine: John 5:39-40 (NCV) You carefully study the Scriptures because you think they give you eternal life. They do in fact tell about me, but you refuse to come to me to have that life.
On Husbands: Romans 6:23 (NCV) The payment for sin is death. But God gives us the free gift of life forever in Christ Jesus our Lord.
I’ve been wanting to make some sliding barn type doors for quite awhile. I’ve never had a place to put them until now! I decided it may be pretty cool to have them on my large workstation. I still need to figure out what I am going to do with the areas it doesn’t cover, but that’s for another time. But for now, on to those barn type sliding doors!

I had a slab of juniper that I decided to make a sign out of. I put ‘faith makes things possible, not easy’ on the sign and tried using fire to burn it! I think the fire adds a nice soft caramely touch. I was going to trim up the slab around the words but Husband suggested I add something to it. So I found a picture of Jesus holding a cross and added that to the sign.
1 Peter 2:21 New Century Version (NCV) This is what you were called to do, because Christ suffered for you and gave you an example to follow. So you should do as he did.

I was asked by a viewer if I would do a video talking about the best wood to use for intarsia. That question could be answered a million different ways because I am sure there are a million different opinions on what wood types are best. So, in this video, I talk about different kinds of wood that I have personally used, my experiences with them, and my likes and dislikes about them.
I do summarize what wood I believe is best to start with when doing intarsia at 19.32. And those are cedar, poplar, and pine.

After I published this video I was given this Janka scale by a viewer, check it out for wood hardness measurements:
I have this great picture of my step dad and his puppy dog and I have wanted to make something with it for quite awhile. I asked Charles Dearing a few years ago to make a pattern out of it and I am finally now trying to router it. I think it looks pretty cool. I also put a verse on the back that I thought fit very well. It is Proverbs 17:17 which says, “A friend loves at all times…”
I wanted to make a pumpkin out of a log of juniper wood that I had. I hoped to “carve” a jack o’ lantern face in it and put a light inside. Well, that didn’t work out, but I did end up using my wood burner to burn a face onto the pumpkin. Even though it’s not really a lantern, it’s still a jack o’ lantern type of a thing. I think it looks cool and makes a great Halloween decoration! I also have the best Halloween costume this year, I think you’re gonna love it!
Special thanks to Steve Carmichael for letting me dress up like him (and for being silly with me)!!! Check out his channel: The Carmichael Workshop.com
My mom asked me to re-stain this table for her. While I was working on it I remembered spilling fingernail polish remover on a dining room table we had when I was a kid. That spot was there for a long time reminding me never to let that stuff touch the table again. This isn’t the old dining room table with the spot, but it is still a table that I can refinish for my mom. 🙂
