I tend to crush balsa wood with my ginormous man-hands or something.

When I made the Day of the Dead shrine for BlueBlythe, you should have seen
the problems I had making the top piece for it. I tried just balsa but I cracked it
about 4 times just trying to glue the thing on. I ended up putting about 8 layers
of Liquitex Molding Paste on the back of it to make it stronger. Learned my lesson
on that one! Roll Eyes

There is so much gorgeous stuff I would buy to craft with, if I could.  There'd be nothing else in the house  Wink

...so the book 'Crafting Personal Shrines' is really good?  I remember flipping through it at way back when, and I remember it being full of gorgeous work.  I'm going to look for it again this weekend when I head out to Barnes & Noble, since viciouskittie already confirmed that the local Books-A-Million (home of the world's most lackluster craft section) doesn't have it.  I was just there!  So close to meeting another Craftster member in person....

I like the idea of constructing my own boxes.  Probably because I can be insanely particular.

In my opinion, the instructions in the book on how to build the boxes with drawers, doors & other little nooks is totaly worth it.

Wow! I paid regular list price at my local B&N...I should have checked Amazon!

Ah, its a skill like any other. I'm just glad that Greg is rebuilding a car because it makes how much I spend on supplies look like pocket change in comparison.

Yes, it's good to have a hobbyist mate who can sort of relate. My boy is a woodworker, and a flyfisher who ties his own flies. If you want a hobby that rivals crafting in supplies needed, flyfishing is an excellent choice!
