Has it been only been a week? It feels like its been a month with all the work and pressure! I’m starting to feel tapped out >_<
Feel free to follow my Twitter feed as I announce there whenever I create a new listing.
Anywho, here’s the promised weekly recap on the 31 Days of Etsy Challenge!
I started the challenge off easy by finishing (finally) the bed I made from this post. I really need to start making bed linens.
This was one of the prototypes with the cubes. I just dolled it up to match the bed.
I included this accessory so I can take a breather from all the furniture making. I’m probably going to include more accessories and decorative items from now on!
Day 4: Translucent Amber Cube Bookcase
Another prototype with the cubes. It is very similar to a swap with the Shopping Sherpa seen here. This is pretty much going to be style of the shelving unit, only except with white cubes and unfinished wood.
This is the ONLY blue piece in my tinting experiments that turned out well. I was going to keep it, but I’m not a big fan of pastels and I was not sure what I’ld be using it for. So bye, bye shelf.
I’m very pleased at how this turned out, though it was rather delicate work (more so than what I’m used to). I had to build a gluing jig to get the legs at a uniform angle. And if you’re wondering, the trestles are made with my sticks (other than using them as floors). More stick furniture and accessories to follow.
I really LOVE this table. Simple, but cool. I’m thinking of building something similar for the dining area in the Nyne.
Brrrrrrr Its Cold!
I drafted a whole slew of furniture plans to build, but like 95% of them require use of my scroll saw. With the saw being in the garage and the garage being around 30 degrees, I can’t use it for more than 10 minutes before my fingers get all numb. So I had to be a bit more creative in terms of what to build, hence why there will be more stick furniture and stuff coming. At least then, I can just use a cutting mat and an Xacto knife while sitting in front of the fireplace!
