1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / piano arm clock on: August 16, 2014 08:25:09 AM
This is my second time making a piano arm clock.  I redesigned it so that the middle is scooped out for the clock hands.  It keeps perfect time.

2  COOKING / Dessert / whoppers on: December 22, 2013 08:44:27 AM
I'm sure this has been done before, but I tried these and was pretty happy with the results.
They aren't exactly round or all the same size, but they taste just like the whoppers that you buy.  Better, actually because you can use whatever chocolate you prefer.

Here's what I did:

Melt one half cup of almond bark in the microwave.
Add one half cup of malt powder and stir well.
Form into little balls and set on waxed paper to harden.
Melt chocolate of your choice (I used Ghirardelli 60% cacao).
Dip hardened malt in melted chocolate and set on waxed paper to dry.

Eat and enjoy.
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / scrabble clock on: June 06, 2013 05:17:44 PM
Several years ago someone made a scrabble clock here.  Sorry, I don't remember who it was.  Anyway, I made one similar to that old one.  The difference is that the newer games have different colored tiles, so I made a clock with some of the old letters and some of the newer ones.

Here's my version.

4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / faire sign on: May 09, 2013 06:00:21 PM
I was asked to make a stand up sign for a ren faire.  This is what I came up with.  All wood.

5  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / walking sticks on: May 09, 2013 05:57:08 PM
I made some walking sticks for a ren faire that I'm going to soon.  All wood.

The four on the left are curly willow and the four on the right are white willow.  The one on the far right is carved.

6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Temple blocks on: May 09, 2013 12:32:45 PM
I made a set of temple blocks.  All wood.  They are percussion blocks.  I made them to go with my ukulele.

7  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Chinese Checkers on: May 09, 2013 10:58:06 AM
These are my chinese checkers that I finished a few days ago.  All wood.

8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Ukulele on: April 17, 2013 06:37:19 AM
Ok, this project has been more than six weeks in the making.  It is made entirely from scatch, no kit.  The back, sides and headstock are walnut. the front is silk spruce, the neck and bridge are mahogany, the fretboard is purpleheart, and the nut and saddle are ebony.  All of the splines on the inside are pine.

It has nine coats of shellac on it.

Anyway, here is my latest project, a ukulele.

9  REUSING/RECYCLING/RECRAFTING / What the heck can I do with THIS? / tyvek on: February 24, 2013 01:02:11 PM
Any ideas for tyvek feed bags?  You know, the kind that 50 pounds of dog food come in.

I've seen tote bags, but there's got to be more than that for this awesome resource.
10  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Ivory piano key earrings and pendant with earrings on: March 29, 2012 08:16:21 PM
I'm still working with the ivory piano keys.  I decided to try to carve a pair of earrings to match the seahorse pendant.

Then I decided to do a pendant and earring set of moons.

The earrings are 3/8 inch wide and 3/4 inch long.  The pendant is 3/4 inch wide and 1 1/2 inches long.

Worked with a dremel and a very tiny bit.
Hope you like them.
