Wooden Bench

Helloooooo again viewers!

After the previous wooden stool, you can only probably guess what I thought of making next?????..............Yep, a wooden bench! :)
It was actually surprisingly easy and didn't take long at all.

I cut all the pieces of wood to the lengths I needed before hand, using either a typical handsaw for the simple cuts, and then my mighty mitre saw for the more exact cuts and angles.

From there, using very basic tools, I made the two ends first, then once they were in place, I could lay the longer beams running along the top ;)
Enjoy the pictures........

Using the same method I used for the stool,...

....I used a countersink to help mark where the screws needed to go and....

....make a dip in the wood for the screws to sit right into.... you can then fill in the gap with wood filler!

Using my trusty Mitre Saw really helped
get the exact angles & cuts that I needed.

And there....

....we have it!!

"Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ" Movie & Drawings

Greetings Citizens!!!

Here's a slightly more random post, but I thought I'd put up some drawings I've done recently.

As some people may already know, I'm an absolute GEEK about ancient Roman history and especially the timeless story of "Ben-Hur: A tale of the Christ"! I really like the book and the older movie (1969).

Although when I heard Paramount Pictures where doing a re-make, I was half excited and half unsure, as I hoped the film makers would do it right and deliver the story well.
However, after watching it for the first time, I soooo enjoyed it and was really impressed! :D

Below are some drawings I've done of the character and the story and hope you like them :)

I've also added the trailer if you wish to see it!

Watch "Ben-Hur" Trailer 2016

In both drawings I tried to capture the main events in the story :)
I'm really bad at drawing horses, so I deliberately cropped them out :/

This one I haven't finished as yet, and again I cropped the horses out :/

Wooden Stool Part 2

Hey Guys!!!

Sorry for not posting anything for a while again :/ Here is (finally) part two of the wooden stool I made! I've made some slight modifications to the actual stool itself and have given it a nice stain to finish it off :)
Enjoy the pictures and stay tuned for the next post......

Wooden Stool Part 1

Hello once again readers!

Here is one of my latest and successful projects so far! A while ago I set upon myself the task of making a wooden stool and what do ya know, I did it! 
Enjoy the going through the photos and again stay tuned for Part 2 :)

Here we go.....

After constructing the basic frame....

....I then added planks of the top
and around the sides
Before screwing the pieces of the frame together, I used
a very useful little drill peice called a 'Countersink'
for drilling wholes into the frame for the screws

Then I filled in the holes/gaps with Wood Filler 

After the wood filler had dried I sanded it
down to create a smoother suface
And that's it....

....for now

Super - Scriptures!

Hey Everyone!,

Sorry for not posting anything for a loooooong while :/ Things have been rather busy for me lately. Last Spring I started a job as a support worker at a nearby care home, and last summer I started driving lessons! 
Thought I just do a quick post on some pictures I've been able to make with only a few apps on my phone. I've found Pictures of my favourite 'Marvel' and 'DC' heroes and (being a Christian and reading The Bible) added some Scriptures that go with their characters. Now, it may sound strange to some of you, but I believe that 'We Christians' can be in some way 'Superheroes'. Now we may not have the ability to....Fly, Run as fast as the speed of sound, Shoot lazers, Have suits that make us shrink to the size of ants, Lift cars or Have bullet proof shields....BUT....WE CAN make a difference, a change and maybe not save the WORLD, but rather save the souls of MANKIND with the name, and the GOOD NEWS of JESUS CHRIST!! 
Philippians 4:13   Romans 10:13-14

Hope you enjoy going through the photos and God Bless :)

Sorry! That's supposed to be 1 John 1:7

Oops! forgot to put the verse with the
picture, but its Ephesians 6:17

Oh, and here's a necklace I recently
made for myself
