    I did have to take a year off for a job I was needed at. You know, retired so you think. Anyway been a VERY SLOW project between all the other projects. Finished the headboard today. Did the Armoire first which is over 6' tall, then the dresser, finally the headboard. Thanks to those that provided the patterns and Mrs. Sharon for showing what paint can do to a project and I ain't no painter All is out of Red Oak and each piece weighed somewhere around a ton. Basement shop, out the small garage door, around the house, up the steep hill, and into the house. Did I mention steep hill? After sanding the finish is Lawrence McFadden Natural Oak Gel Stain. CarveWright did one heck of a job. Great Going LHR! And the forum that kept me going and did not give up on the machine when I first got it and had to learn the curve for this particular machine. That is a king size bed in the room.

    This Month’s New Project of the Month:
    THE "PICKLE JAR TERRARIUM"

    Make a cool terrarium using a gallon-size glass pickle jar and your CarveWright machine! I've had "make a terrarium project" on my to-do list for awhile, but hesitated because I needed to find a reliable source for a "standard size" and affordable glass container.

    Finally, it occurred to me that a large pickle jar would make a dandy terrarium, is easily sourced and is dirt cheap...only about $5 for a gallon of pickles at the time of this writing. Follow along, as I show you how to make this fun project!

    The project uses just the 1/8" Cutting Bit and no other bits are required.

    The finished dimensions of the assembled project are about 9" round x 14" tall.
