Journal ‘ing

Journal ‘ing

Off top of my head all the forms a journal (or diary) can take:

1. writing on a shopping bag

2. my brown book (planner)

3. back of receipts

4. back on envelopes

5. computer notepad, wordpad or stick-on notes (digital)

6. in an Excel spreadsheet

7. write an email to ones self

8. create a web page

9. a twitter tweet

10. call your own voice mail

11. mail it to yourself (keep sealed upon arrival)

1st Journal- probably notebook papers, which ultimately were not kept. Much later on a trip to Spain I bought a spiral notebook which multi colored sections. I did write very detailed into them.
Deeply held beliefs: that it is difficult for me to start, to do, to ‘get down to it’. My internal editor kicks in way too much. Even before I start.

BirdHouse Part 1

BirdHouse Part 1

BirdHouse, one with nailed roof, the other uses screws. Screws tend to pull the roof tighter, true of most woodworking construction.

Little wooden latch with screw hinges to allow side to swing out (these were made with opening on the right hand side. Also though it may be difficult to see the climb on inside to the 1 1/2″ round opening is scratched along the path to give the nestlings a means to climb out. 1 1/2″ is good for many birds. If one just wanted to cater to wrens (and keep their meaner cousins out) drill a 1 1/4″ hole:

Ah, the precision life of an apparel pattern maker, all these are identical (though they didn’t have to be):

 

Bottom is mitered all four side for both drainage and ventilation:

Does woodworking and sewing go hand-n-hand? 🙂

Blue birds and Woodpeckers could (and should) use their own design:

Just let me know what you’d like (type of wood, hole size, varity) – more later!

Taylor Patterns

Taylor Patterns

Hi,  I lost my website last year (through a hack attack) and didn’t have the time to rebuild it. So I decided to include some of it on my personal website.

Contact me at martinltpm@gmail.com or 606-567-5130 (cell, leave voice message if I am unable to answer) for patternmaking, pattern work, grading, consultation, or leads to resources.

More to come.

Great Great Grandfather

Great Great Grandfather

A forest clearing cathedral straight out of “The Red Badge of Courage”, minus the Union soldier, and more peaceful. A place of rest. Rest among those he knows, a place he returned after adventures out west. Something drew him back, There is a story here. He left some family in Arkansas. His business interests spread out in Georgia, a far cry from the farmer of eastern North Carolina.

A story to be discovered. Or to be written. Or a little of both.
