We developed the potting bench as a beginner project for those interested in working with wood. The wood can be purchased at most craft shops or ordered on line. It is recommended that you have a miter saw, which is a good basic in any tool kit. This is only one of several that are available.
This project has been around for decades. We decided to revisit it and offer what we learned. We started with a tutorial by Natalia Frank. One of our members suggested using these bobbins. We also experimented with different tapes. The Scotch brand two-sided tape that Natalia uses is the most reliable. You can also use cardboard in place of glass.
Egg Carton Masonry
There are many ways to use egg cartons for masonry. We have used the technique for several club projects and are offering it here for reference.
The Bookshelf Project
The club was interested in building a scene in a book or set of books. The “shell” would be one large book, several books, a craft store book box, and 1:12 or 1:24 scale. Click here to follow the project.
