Ribbon Ornaments

star, cat, family, wreath, dragonfly

The ribbon ornaments sold out last year so I've made some more this year.  I have stars, cats (sorry I don't have a pattern for dogs), a dragon fly, wreaths and the holy family. Birds should be ready around the beginning of December.  As they say, watch this space because as I make more objects with gift-giving season in mind, I'll post them here on the website. Ornaments are $10 each.

Wooden-hinge box

Wooden-hinge box

For quite a while I've wanted to make a box with wooden hinges.  I reasearched various ways to make the hinges and the method I chose was to drill the hole for the pin first and then cut out the hinge shape using the scroll saw. This may not be the fastest way to do things but it worked well. Because the box is relatively small, about 4 inches long, I cut the rabbets on the lid panel using a hand plane instead of using the table saw. Preparing the panel took less time than I anticipated and, once again, hand tools allowed me to sneak up on the fit.
