Happy Holiday Scrap Houses

steve wallet architect holiday wood scrap house with ribbon 11-13-2013steve wallet architect holiday wood scrap house primed 11-13-2013Anything to use up some of those scraps piled around my work bench…

Lisa came up with the idea of making little wood houses for holiday gifts. I could paint the sides with blackboard paint to write a special message for each recipient. And I could draw a cartoon on one end. Add decorative ribbon on top and voila’, a holiday gift!steve wallet architect holiday wood scrap house phone sketch 11-13-2013

I cut the house shapes out of 4×4 redwood scraps, then primed them. As I like to do, I took a picture of one (second image) and drew on it in my cell phone, working out the colors and look (third image).steve wallet architect holiday wood scrap house honukkah l 11-13-2013

Happy with the sketch, we went into production, making 11 houses (fourth and fifth images). When they were all done, I couldn’t help assembling them into cat cartoon streets (bottom images). You have to admit, they look pretty neat!

Hanukkah Menorah

A little gift for my father.

We rummaged through my wood scraps and came up with the basic shape, without any drawings. I nailed the pieces together, primed it and took a photo (top). Then I drew on the photo using my cell phone, trying various color schemes (second to fifth pictures). We selected the last (third from the bottom) drawing and I painted the menorah to match (bottom two pictures).
