November 2009  issue

November 2009

Between Halloween, Thanksgiving, and "last-minute" Christmas project ideas, these Fall and Winter holidays are well-represented. Colorful Halloween signs, assorted Halloween light covers, and a segmented Autumn welcome sign get things rolling. The Thanksgiving season is ushered in with a pair of wild turkeys and a turkey/owl mini clock set. Christmas crafting enters the mix with a beautiful layered winter scene, a segmented Christmas tree trinket box, a candy-cane-toting nutcracker intarsia, a festive snow globe picture frame, an elegant angel, and creative gift card holders (which are an especially nice way of dressing up the "I don't know what they want so I'll give a gift card" gift!). Of course, we have also included a large number of non-seasonal projects, including a reproduction of an antique hall mirror, unique pen and paperclip holders, a horse jumping scene, a handy pocket shelf, an adorable sandhill cranes piece, and an inspirational "Hope, Dream, Change" word art.

This special holiday issue of Creative Woodworks & Crafts features an amazing 136 ornament patterns. Designs have been provided by many of our talented designers, including Dirk Boelman, Wayne Bosler, Wayne and Jacob Fowler, Billie Holm, Sheila Landry, Sue Mey, and Bob Valle. In addition to the wonderful ornament selection, there are patterns for two seasonal clocks, a layered Christmas tree accented with compound-cut candles, a segmented horse-drawn sleigh plaque, and an elegant "Christmas in the City" shadowbox. Bruce Worthington and Janette Square have also provided an adorable trio of intarsia designs, featuring a Christmas kitten, bird, and Jack-in-the Box Santa Claus. Finally, Sheila Landry shares tips for modifying ornament patterns to create many variations from one design, and readers share photos of their holiday-themed projects in our readers gallery feature.

September 2009

September 2009

Our selection of projects in this September, 2009 issue of Creative Woodworks & Crafts is quite varied! "Cute" is represented by Paul Boer's sweet memories elephant and Diana Thompson's little brown hen. "Fierce" describes Wayne and Jacob Fowler's diamondback rattlesnake and their battling dragon and phoenix design, as well as Dirk Boelman's tiger. "Useful" comes to mind with the Wilckens' paper towel holders, Dirk Boelman's workshop clock, Gary MacKay's hinge-lid jewelry box, and Sue Mey's celestial votive holder. "Colorful" captures Bob Valle's scarecrow clock, Sheila Landry's bird plaques, and Deb Nicholson's crafty turtles. "Back-to-nature" is a good term for Whitetail Designs' sunfish photo frame, Marilyn Carmin's mule deer, and the winter wolf by Bruce Worthington and Janette Square. Rounding out our collection of descriptive terms, we have "inspiring," with Toni Burghout's guardian angel word art, and "old-fashioned," with Wayne Bosler's antique spinning wheel reproduction.

Spring is definitely in the air, with strawberries, butterflies, dragonflies, flamingos, "fleur-de-lis" wall clocks, and even jackalopes gracing the pages of the June 2009 issue of Creative Woodworks & Crafts! Love is also in the air, with Paul Boer's alphabet blocks spelling out their message of love, Toni Burghout's "Love All Around You" tile, and the Wilckens' "Heart Garden" box. Other scrolling projects include a harpy eagle by Jake Klipple, a wolf portrait by Marilyn Carmin, a Chinese dragon by Wayne and Jacob Fowler, a creatively-assembled tall box by Gary MacKay, and a trio of kitchen trivets by Billie Holm. Round out your scrolling with an assortment of elegant crosses designed by Dirk Boelman, and try your hand at compound cutting Diana Thompson's miniature bible table and chairs. Intarsia fans will be kept busy with Bruce Worthington's and Janette Square's "Looking Home," (a beautiful horses and landscape composition), and Jeff Powell's useful intarsia handles.

April cover

April 2009

You'll find lots of creatures - four-legged, finned, and feathered - in the April 2009 issue of Creative Woodworks & Crafts. From dog to butterfly, hummingbird to trout, we've got you covered! Box makers are sure to find a design to their liking. Pick from Roy King's Anika box, with its unique magnetic hinge system; Diana Thompson's elegant tiered crescent box; Gary MacKay's jewelry box, with its optional lift-out tray and creative walnut inlay banding; or Sue Mey's useful CD gift box, decorated with a beautiful scrolled music motif. (As an extra bonus, patterns and instructions for making a companion DVD stand are also included.) Two gorgeous clock plans are featured in this issue. One, the Ruston Clock by the Wilckens, makes a striking accent for a mantel or front hallway table. The other is Sue Mey's graceful arch clock, which can be made as shown using a rectangular base, or can be cut from thicker wood and displayed standing on its own...

March 2009

While Wayne and Jacob Fowler's Canada Geese, Whitetail Designs' Rooster Clock, and Marilyn Carmin's Golden Eagle are all "flocked together" in this issue, they most certainly are not "birds of a feather"—each project offers an original take on these feathered friends and provides a fun scrolling experience. Diana Thompson lends her skill with compound cutting to beautiful lace suncatchers that would also make lovely ornaments at holiday time. John Polhemus walks readers through the process of flocking the interior of his diamond box, Gary Mackay illustrates an interesting inlay technique with his cutting board, Byron Brubaker explains his process for making a six-sided bowl, and Roy King presents an exciting new concept of using magnets in place of hinges on his Britannia box. Intarsia enthusiasts will enjoy Janette Square's pond scene and Deb Nicholson's playful depiction of shar-pei dogs...
