Nov 10

November 2010

It looks like winter is on its way with the November issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts. We have a cheery snowman from Bob Valle, an elegant snow angel from Wayne and Jacob Fowler, a snowflake shelf from Dan and Roy Wilckens, and a set of holiday trivets from Wayne Bosler, which includes a quick-and-easy snowflake trivet. Before we get ourselves too deeply immersed into wintertime, however, Sue Mey has provided a bewitching Halloween plaque, and Andrea Dürr shares a lovely Autumn leaf bowl. Wildlife is well-represented in this issue, with Mike Williams' tribute to a hunting dog, Bob Valle's howling wolf clock, the Fowlers' great horned owl, Whitetail Designs' largemouth bass, Homer and Carol Bishop's winter cardinal intarsia, and Annja Starrett's striking Iberian Lynx intarsia. Compound-cutting enthusiasts will be challenged by Rick Hutcheson's intertwined giraffes and John Bare's baby grand pianos. Other projects rounding out our offerings include Gary MacKay's fretwork frame, Jeff Powell's faerie intarsia, Jim Sonnleitner's firetruck puzzle, Diana Thompson's beautiful holly dish, and Sue Mey's large fretwork star that can grace your home year-round. Finally, be sure to "Bee Happy" with Sheila Landry's fun, bee-themed design. See what else is in this issue

Holiday issue

Holiday 2010

If you're looking for scrollsaw ornament patterns, then the special Holiday 2010 issue of Creative Woodworks & Crafts will surely fit the bill! And as if more than 110 ornament patterns is not enough, there are plenty of holiday-themed projects provided, as well. Add to your holiday decor with Sue Mey's Peace on Earth plaque, Sheila Landry's Angelic Tree Topper and Layered Reindeer Dish, Wayne Bosler's Cozy Holiday Corner set of a miniature tree and hearth, and beautiful boxes designed by Sue Mey and Janice Manuel. Dirk Boelman's and Joe Diveley's holiday-themed letter openers make beautiful gifts, and their bookmarks can easily be stack-cut to yield a large number of holiday party favors. The jewelry pieces designed by Deb Nicholson would also make lovely gifts. Intarsia enthusiasts will enjoy Janette Square's and Bruce Worthington's Chrismoose, plus the Kitten designed by Janette. The Fowlers' Our Lady of Guadalupe is a stunning image, and Paul Boer's Angels' Greeting word art captures the true spirit of Christmas. We couldn't have a holiday issue without featuring a jolly Santa, and the Fowlers have provided a great design! See what else is in this issue

Septemebr issue

September 2010

Traditional scrolling projects include the Wilckens' mini clocks, Dirk Boelman's and Joe Diveley's curio frame, the Fowlers' Dragon Encounter, Don Calhoun's leopard, Michael Hornung's arrowhead plaque, and Paul Boer's beautiful word art piece. Pick up your paintbrush (or spray paint can!) and follow our basic painting instructions to add some color to Bob Valle's sea-themed clock, Sheila Landry's "nutty" welcome sign, Sue Mey's table stand, BJ Holm's sandcastle mobile, and Diana Thompson's innovative ladybug tablecloth weights. The economically-conscious among you will appreciate Roy King's round basket, made from just two pieces of wood, Deb Nicholson's jewelry charms, created from hardwood scraps, and John Polhemus' tips for resawing your wood scraps into usable pieces. Intarsia fans should be sure to see the Native-American inspired Spirit by Darin Liles, as well as the beautiful Hummingbirds and Hibiscus, designed by renowned intarsia artist Lucille Crabtree and brought to life by Janette Square.

July issue

July 2010

"Innovation" seems to be the key word describing the bulk of projects in this July 2010 issue! From phenomenal coasters jointly designed by Bob Valle and John Polhemus to attractive pen holders by Roy King, you'll be kept very busy. Sheila Landry's See Creatures will put a smile on your face (they're actually eyeglass holders!), as will Deb Nicholson's "ferocious" Bear Door Topper. If you enjoy detailed, portrait-style cutting, be sure to check out Mike Williams' The Pride and Don Calhoun's African Cape Buffalo. Paul Boer's word art once again graces our pages, this time with a music-themed project. Sue Mey's Celtic Box and Lacework Frame, the Wilckens' Sunburst Mini Clock, and Wayne Bosler's Framed Silhouettes offer a nice selection of home-dec pieces. Wayne and Jacob Fowler "shoot for the moon" with their Eclipse pattern, and their pair of butterflies makes a beautiful set. Fans of intarsia will enjoy Bruce Worthington's and Janette Square's lovely Dragonfly on Cattails, as well as Carol and Homer Bishop's Elf Owl. See what else is in this issue
