Wood Creations

I am trying this new thing with the slide shows. Initially, they are a lot of work, but I think they will be useful and fun over time.

Today I am sharing some of the things that I have made out of wood. I buy very few materials for these projects. I am an incurable dumpster diver. My garage and now my house are full of things I have found at the curb on trash day. Now my friends are calling me about trash finds. They call when their garage sales are finished so I can look through the leftovers. They bring me junk to church. I am having so much fun. There are just not enough hours in the day to complete the projects.

I am also working of a couple of  commission pieces. My friend wants her husband’s coat of arms painted on a board. I will send pictures when it is complete.

I am repainting this desk for a Christmas present.

I get to be creative. It is for a 5-year-old boy. I am excited.

God and genetics have blessed me with talent. I am having a great time exploring the possibilities.

What else will this creative and crazy mind imagine?

Autumn Additions

This week I added some new creations to the Antiques and Crafts Mall of Pasadena. Many of the designs were inspired by trash2treasure.  Here is what the shop looks like now:

My sister was frustrated because she could not find a weather proof scarecrow. All the ones she found were cloth so they would only last one year. She likes wood yard art. So I decided this was  niche that need to be filled. I had a pile of fence pickets that had fallen during hurricane Ike. Remember, I don’t throw away anything. Just ask Brad and the people who have helped me move. I also had some shelf boards that we torn out of the house in Bridge City.

Some boards are 6″ and some are 4″. I used the 6″ for the body and legs. I used the 4″ for the arms. The head and hat are made from shelf board.

The owner of the Antiques and Crafts Mall of Pasadena has put the scarecrows on the porch to draw in customers. They have some unique things inside. Here are  some other pictures of my stuff.

Next I plan to highlight the items that I have to celebrate team spirit. Follow my blog to see these.
