High Powered Glasses from projection TV Lenses

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


High Powered Glasses from projection TV LensesI was watching a cool movie (on DVD) called ” The Name of the Rose ”, with Sean Connery and Christian Slater. Ron Pearlman. He had a pair of thick lensed wooden folding glasses for reading and looking for clues. So I made a similar pair from lenses I salavaged from a big old projection TV. I made a nice leather (wool fleece lined)) pouch and lanyard for them too. They are quite heavy to wear around my neck. Sean carries them on his belt in the movie. They also have a shiny copper ring that holds the lens into the African Rosewood wooden frame. Just a fun project that was very satisfying to make.

A Pumpkin Center Piece Project for my Sister

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


A Pumpkin Center Piece Project for my SisterMy sister asked me to make a number of table center pieces for a school program she was helping to decorate for. The piece is based off (with some modifications) something she saw at a Large Lot store (no ads here) so I went to the store to get the measurements, the last picture. Shortly after my commitments to her, I injured my ankle playing my husband in racquetball. SO, between the 3 of us, we finished up making 35 of these center pieces. This is as close to production line work as I would ever want to come. I made my poor hubby salvage the wood from someone's back yard who was taking down a swimming pool & fence, with their permission of course. I have a reputation as a dumpster diving, garage sale'n kind of person. SO, from old pool fencing to Thanksgiving center pieces.
