Questions Jeff Branch Woodworking Many woodworkers attempt to understand the powerful 3D modeling software called SketchUp. And many woodworkers get extremely frustrated with SketchUp because it’s capabilities are so vast, it is hard to learn on your own. I know because I was one of those woodworkers. Over the last few years, I’ve been determined to learn SketchUp and I have learned a lot, but not all of what I learned has been helpful. Some of the techniques I taught myself are more like bad habits.

How to tie a Monkey's Fist Video I usually use paracord or smaller cordage for knotwork, but this larger 3/8" diameter rope makes it easier for you to see what I'm doing in the video. I used three turns for each side of the knot to cover the 1" ball bearing that I used for the core of the fist. You can use whatever you want for the core: marbles, ball bearings, wooden/cork ball, rubber ball, wad of paper/plastic, a knot at the end of the cord and tucked into the center of the fist, etc.

Native American Hopi Style Kachina Masks and Art for Young Children Make katsina or kachina dolls and masks. Decorate with fabric, felt, feathers, cotton balls, beads and other household items. The kachina mask representations are presented both as finished color book drawings and in basic face format so children can create their own mask decorations using colorful feathers, cloth, beads, etc., or print and color the ears, feathers and other symbols provided in the parts section. The purpose of "Paper Kachina Masks for Young Children" is to provide an overview of kachina art and culture in the hopes of piquing the interests of young children to learn more about Southwestern Native American Hopi Pueblo arts, crafts and culture. As with any cultural folk art, kachina masks have changed over the years and may no longer resemble the old style many of which are represented in this web site. In the Hopi religion there are over 400 kachina types.

Planet Texture Map Collection I work in the field of advertising. One day I needed an image map of our planet for use in a rendering for a printed piece, and was suprised to discover that such a thing was pretty hard to find. So I created my own using scanned data, lots of painting, and reference to USGS digital elevation map data. manmadediy I spend quite a bit of time setting up for projects on the tools. It’s amazing how much time it takes to make a few simple yet complex cuts. For the type of cuts that happen often, it makes sense to make a few go-to jigs to help with those annoying set-ups. One of my favorite places to find jigs and other ideas is

Playground Crochet by Toshiko Horiuchi - Playscapes Toshiko Horiuchi MacAdam, who orders yarn by the ton for her creations, is the textile artist behind the oft photographed net constructions at the Hakone sculpture park in Sapporo Japan. I love the story of how she came to be engaged with children’s play: “It all happened quite by accident. Two children had entered the gallery where she was exhibiting ‘Multiple Hammock No. 1’ and, blissfully unaware of the usual polite protocols that govern the display of fine art, asked to use it.
