Project #10: The Chair Saga…Continues…

So after completing a rough version of my chair I didn’t much like it because it does resemble a box. + Then I went back and really thought what type of look I wanted for my dolly condo and that chair just wasn’t doing it, so back to the basics.  I really thought about what would be easy to make on my own and sturdy … Continue reading Project #10: The Chair Saga…Continues…

Project #10 (Continued) “It’s a Box…Uh it’s a Chair”

Yes my chair is coming along, but it does resemble a box. + I didn’t realize how difficult this would be until I started cutting the pieces. + So last week I cut all of my pieces, but when I wanted to put them together it still wasn’t right, so I went back and recut more pieces. + Even what I measured, and measured again … Continue reading Project #10 (Continued) “It’s a Box…Uh it’s a Chair”

Project #9: Coffee Table Book

This week I decided to try my hand and making some coffee table books vs. purchasing them.  I’m all for purchasing a good product — especially if the details are perfect.  I thought that I would try my hand at making a simple coffee table book.  This little project took a little longer than I thought only because of sizing and printing.  For my books … Continue reading Project #9: Coffee Table Book
