    Our cottage had need of a spool of thread for it's sewing box, so I took a custom order from My Wifey this morning!

  5. Closeup of Second Turning

    From the album Gnome's Homes

    Just thought a closeup of the original dowel, and the output was called for :woohoo: I thought about attempting to produce something I would keep, like a cup or a bowl...but the truth is that no matter what I produced it would be bearable at best.. So! I spent the time learning to produce the lines I wanted. Learning also to control the depth and shape of my carving/gouging. :groucho: So far, so good! Thx for indulging my babblings!
  6. Mini Lathe Acquired and Acquainted!

    From the album Gnome's Homes

    I played hookie today and took M'Lady through the keyhole (AKA Mini Shopping @ Dallas' 'Through The Keyhole' miniature store) We met some nice people and pointed them this way. Hopefully we will be seeing them here. We picked up the basics for several cool projects and in addition brought home a desire to continue our adventure through actual use ;) Which brings us to this picture! (Hey, I never promised this story was going to be short *AND* to the point!) A friend of mine did a little shopping for me the other day at Harbor Freight. I now own a Mini Lathe. I have hesitated to use it, partly from time, and partly from a lack of a duplicator. While I still don't have the mini-lathe-duplicator-attachment, I couldn't wait any longer. And thus, Some random turnings were born!! :yikes: I'll post updates as I explore the wonderful world of turning big sticks into smaller, more creative versions of themselves! :woohoo: , but for now, I just had to share with people who'd "GET IT" when I said I was running a table saw and an 8 inch lathe at midnight in my garage

    Ahhh.. Thank you all for your kind welcome. I have to run off to the mine ((Insert picture of Gnomish chasing after several, possibly seven, dwarfs...dragging his shovel)) but will reply in more detail when I return home!

  11. Mini by Nature

    :worthy: Hello! I'd like to take a moment to introduce myself. "Self, this is everyone," he said jovially. "Everyone, this is myself." I hope to be spending some time here as the people are really nice, the dollhouses are just incredible, and most of all... my wife hangs out here while I sacrifice myself on the altar of work. Though, it does help cover some of the expense of our homes within our home. :idea: M'Lady and Her Gnome started one Saturday a few years ago in Active Worlds (3-D chat program that allowed building of the environment also). One of our favorite worlds had this really neat little gnome for an avatar. He ZOOMED around the landscape! Poor M'Lady could barely keep him in sight as he ran around rooms, over furniture, up onto the oddest places.. usually during conversations! Somehow he captured her heart online as much as I had offline. :whistle: They came to symbolize our relationship, our time together :music_dj: online while physically seperated by several states in 'the real world' One thing we have found throughout our relationship is that our interests are as diverse as our desire to work together is strong. <<random thought>> if you insert a spoiler around a smiley... does it keep you from seeing it? guess not! :wine: Cool background color though. :icecream: We have started several houses and room boxes together. We would finish more if I focused more, but I'm new to mini's and am definitely not a 'finishing touches' guy. Even in my 1:1 scale work, I leave the trim work to the beloved wife. Anyway, Nuff Ramblin! Howdy, Ya'll!! Thanks for making a poor gnome welcome in your garden! Bill :worthy: :jump:

  15. My First Table

    From the album Gnome's Homes

    :whistle: To mis-quote eyeore: It's not much of a table, but I'm kind of attached to it B)
