11  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Steampunk Goggles on: February 17, 2011 05:24:15 PM
I did a personal swap with fullmoon. Thought I would share what I made. These are a set of steam punk goggles made from 5oz leather, brass thumb screws, Plexiglas, some plumbing fittings, and a buckle. I had fun making them and hope you enjoy them.

12  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Mushroom Pendant (Bone) on: February 07, 2011 06:09:56 PM
Thought I would share this Mushroom Pendant that I made. Nothing fancy just a mushroom carved out of bone.


13  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Warcraft Alliance Crest Carved Into Bone on: December 29, 2010 08:30:48 PM
Finishing up posting my different Holiday gifts. This one I made for a friend of ours. She is really getting into playing World of Warcraft. It is the first video game she has ever really player and is really enjoying it. Although I am a fan of the Horde she plays Alliance. So I decided to carve the Alliance crest into a piece of bone so she could make a necklace or something else. Because the bone curves it was really hard to get a full picture of it and because it is shiny and white it was also hard to get a picture of it with detail, so I had to darken the image some so you can see the detail. Hope you enjoy it.

14  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Toadstool...Stool (Pic Heavy) Now With Tutorial Page on Page 3 on: December 23, 2010 08:09:06 AM
Ah Miscellaneous Topics my favorite location and home of all the awesome crafts. I have been wanting to post about this project for awhile but since the wife frequents these halls I could not let her catch a glimpse of her present. I had a lot of fun working on this and think it is some of my best work to date, hope you enjoy it as well.

My wife loves mushroom houses but I wanted to make something she could use as well and not just look at on a shelf so I came up with this idea. It has a 24" diameter top, and a 15" diameter base. it is about 2 feet tall and has a working door, and a flickering yellow LED light behind the window.

Finished Project.

Thank you and I hope you all enjoyed it.

15  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Coconut Heart Earrings (3 Pairs) on: December 10, 2010 04:31:29 PM
Sorry accidentally posted this under my wife's account at first.

Getting ready for Christmas and I am working on making some presents for my Sisters kids 4 girls and a Boy. I finished 3 pairs of earrings last night, I need to make 1 more pair of earrings and figure out something to make for my nephew. But I thought I would share my progress so far.

1 Set

3 Sets

3 Sets Close Up

I tried to keep them kind of primitive cause I like the texture it gives the earrings. If they were all straight cuts I think they would look too clean and boring. Any feedback would be appreciated and any suggestions for my nephew  Smiley
16  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Coconut Tree Of Life Pendants on: November 14, 2010 08:39:24 PM
Hello all, it's been awhile since I have posted anything but a friend of mine at work asked me to make three necklaces for her three daughters. I then made a knot work pendant for her. I added their birthstone colors to each pendant to make them personalized for each of them. All of these pendants are made from Coconut. Hope you enjoy them.




Knot work, October

17  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Dr. Who Travel Sewing Kit on: July 11, 2010 10:10:17 AM
Oh Miscellaneous Forum how I love you, the only place where my crafts find a home. This project was for "One Tiny Thing: Dr. Who". I cannot claim credit for idea of this. I saw something like it on my partners wist made by Ellemir. Although I had to modify it slightly ( I don't sew much and it had to be small ). So I grabbed
  • A piece of poplar
  • Some small hinges
  • Wood glue
  • Clamps
  • Paint
  • And Implements of Destruction
and set about my work. I am very happy with the out come.

So we open up the TARDIS.

The whole TARDIS opens up to allow access to 2 pin cushions and a seam ripper.

The center pole can also be used as a spool holder.

And what TARDIS would be complete without a Doctor and a Companion and some antagonists Smiley

So here is 10th Doctor, Rose, an Adipose Baby, and an Empty Child all on the tops of pins.

I hope that you all enjoy this. Loved working on it.
18  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Marble Chess Board And Pieces (Pic Heavy) on: February 10, 2010 05:40:46 PM
So I found out I am going to be moving so I started packing up my stuff and before I packed up my chess board I decided to take some pictures and post them for all to see.

I made this a few years back when I worked in construction. We were working on this one home and the home owners ordered 20" x 20" Italian pitted marble tiles for their entrance way, but she didn't like that they were so big and wanted them to be 9" x 9" tiles. So my boss bought a different saw to make it easier to cut the tiles. So I spent most of the day cutting all these tiles down to size (with about a 1" left over scrap) then we started spacing out the tiles and found out that the saw wasn't square so all the tiles had 2 sides that were about an 1/8th" off so I had to square the saw and re-cut all the tiles again. I was shaving off about 1/2". So I had 1" scraps and 1/2" scraps.

Well while I spent the entire day cutting and re-cutting tiles I decided they would make a good chess board. So I would cut a few tiles, carve a piece, rinse and repeat. Then at the end of the day I grabbed the nail gun, glue, and stain and put everything together. Since I was using the pitted marble I wanted to give everything a very rugged and rustic look, so all the pieces are crude and the board looks a little beat up. I really like it and hope you do too.

Here is it all put away.

19  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Hand Carved Bone Trinket Box (pic heavy) on: February 07, 2010 07:44:10 AM
Well because I can never figure out where any of my projects should go they almost always end up here, lol  Grin
I made this for my boss for Christmas. I work for Samsung which is a Korean company so I asked his secretary what I should write on the side so she wrote out the characters, but didn't tell me what they meant. So for I all I know I may have been writing nasty things to him, ha ha. But I didn't get fired and he thanked me for it (he didn't believe I made it at first and thought I had bought it somewhere but then his secretary confirmed I had made it) so I assume they were all good.

Anyway the box is about 2" wide by 1" deep with a leather top and bottom. I used the leather stain in the characters to make them easier to see.

Hope you liked it.
20  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Completed Projects / Dwarf on: January 30, 2010 10:14:00 PM
So being a fan of fantasy and being bored I decided to try my hand a polymer clay. so with a little bit of white clay, a toothpick, and some tin foil i started fooling around while watching TV. I was very happy with the result. After a little paint I was even happier. I am now tempted to make a whole little army of dwarfs and goblins and create an epic battle  Grin hope you like him.
