Nativity Creche

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Nativity CrecheHI:In an attempt to keep me (aka “Grumps”) busy, my wife suggested I build a nativity crche for our grand daughter's nativity set.Enough said!Here are the photos of the project. The base is hickory, and the walls/roof are hard maple, all scraps of hardwood from my shop. The roof is detachable, so my grand daughter can 'play house' with the nativity characters to her heart's content.The star on the rood is an idea that just came to me out of the blue, and was accomplished with my bandsaw. An entrance kerf was cut from the side to access the area on the star. The cut was later glued shut, barely visible.Finally, I hand carved the text “Jesus Our Savior” into the front edge of the base, so my grand daughter would learn that Jesus is not just a doll but the centre of our Christian faith.My grand daughter will receive this as an early Christmas gift so she can display the nativity figures in the weeks before Christmas :-)Bill

DECORATIVE BOWL with a LID

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


DECORATIVE BOWL with a LIDI do not have much of a story with this on lathing process as my computer refuses to download the pictures. I hope I will be able to recover pictures of another project with help from my computer friend. It is a major one that and I want to do a video. This project was a practice one to sharpen up what skills I have for an old guy.
The color blending came out allot better than I thought when I was doing it. Very pleased with the result, It is a mixture of red and gold, dabbed on and blended around with air pressure. The colored rings on the last project I blackened it with felt pen, I tried it with this larger surface and it worked out well, no masking at all. It is hard to take a picture to show the true brilliance.Tried lathing another one of those finials, eventually I will get a better one. Just have to figure out how to post them vertically, I rotated them in pictures, showed vertically, guess it is too late at night and they want to lay down. what can one do, I give up.All in all the combination with the lid turned out OK.Thanks for looking and comments are always encouraging.Rain here today here, no snow, what a disappointment. NOT REALLY ONE IS ALWAYS NOT PREPARED FOR IT, no matter how late it comes. HAVE A GREAT THANKS GIVING DAY to all those south of the border, and those south of the equator, STAY COOL. rest of us stay WARM

I left the saw marks and imperfections in the wood. I got the legs from Osborne Wood, I cut them with a 2-sided taper and painted them black. The top is finished with a mix of Candlelite and Java, General Finishes gel stain. The topcoat is General Finish, Gel Topcoat, satin.
