My latest Mod Podge Rocks project is up and viewable and it’s time for trees!
I’ve been wanting to do these and imagining them but unable to get it really done due to Christmas madness.
Of course, those aren’t the trees I initially planned.
I kept trying different approaches and each one just became more and more complicated. I could hear all of you saying to yourselves “well, David, listen, it’s been a fun ride but you’re clearly insane so we’re just going to step away slowly”
My problem was I wanted to make them without using specialized tools. I didn’t want to be the Norm Abraham of the Glue-Stuff-To-Wood crowd. Did you ever watch his New Yankee Workshop show? Great stuff but totally frustrating:
“let me show you how to make this. You’ll just need wood and about 5 different, highly specialized power tools that no human being except for myself has and I only have them because my sponsors provided them to me”
So I tried and …..
So I came up with an alternate!
I will make them in scrap wood strips and then they will go on a dowel so you could rotate them, spread them out etc!
Well, first I almost cut my hand off cutting the strips of wood.
And then I almost drilled my hand off trying to drill a hole in the center with a handheld drill (trying to avoid using the drill press).
I’ll keep trying!
Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays!
