Welcome, creative Farkers, to the Fark Arting Thread!

Share artwork/creative projects past, present, and in progress, embracing all disciplines and various hobbies or crafts: cooking, baking, brewing, quilting, needlework, sculpting, drawing, painting, metalsmithing, woodworking, found art, digital, film, musical, and more. Anything creative you'd like to show off.

This is a community of inspiration, support, advice, ideas, and techniques. Even if you'd rather not submit anything, feel free to join the conversation. Anyone with experience in a specific discipline is more than welcome to share tips and tricks. This is a gallery, but also a place to talk shop.

If you offer advice or critique, please be kind.

Fun weekend!
The table turned out to be a little too small so I added a couple black walnut inches to either end.

That is still waiting for final sanding and finishing because my badass niece wanted to make a kamele n'goni and that was way sexier so took priority.

We made some great mistakes on the first one (background - maple neck, pineapple juice can) but the second one benefitted greatly from those mistakes (foreground - cherry neck, tomato sauce can).

We used this guy's video as a guide.

Definitely fun. Definitely recommend.

I finally went camping this year.  Between my wife and me we had four cameras (I forgot my Pentax Auto 110).  The hike to Saint Paul Lake in NW Montana was tough but worth it.

And with the full spectrum camera that I've been geeking out way too much over:

I built a dumpy little plant table from a wood pallet this weekend. It still needs paint though.

Was it?

Maple base, purpleheart stem, and a Dollar Tree martini glass.  It passed the quality assurance test.  It didn't sell at the craft show yesterday, but lots of other things did.

Do not call it dumpy. What it came from was pretty worthless and dumpy but you transformed it into a non-dumpy piece that now is nice to look at as well as useful. Do not ever put yourself down, there are plenty of other assholes that will gladly do that for you. It takes a lot of work and sight and work on your part to make anything out of a 5$ crappy pallet. Wood stain would probably work better then paint, it adds a little depth and exoticness to the look.


Thanks for the confidence bump but it is a dumpy little table. As they say, I know what I got here. But just 30 minutes ago, my son said, "don't paint it, stain it so it looks wet like it does now". So I think I'll get some stain/urethane whatever this weekend. And then find another pallet.

But thank you. I appreciate the kind words.

That's not a dumpy table. For something made from an old wood pallet, it's a good, solid table. Some paint or stain will make it look better and protect the wood from water.


You too. Thanks, farker.

eyeq360: Last weekend's drawing was a fun experiment. It's a watercolor look with colored pencils.

Also, I've been admiring your work for years. And this is beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

Thank you so much to everyone who has shared their craft this week! I'm continuously amazed at the skill, dedication, and creativity you all possess.

I have a special request this week for anyone creatively inclined in the Graphic Design dept.

Our friends from the weekly Caturday thread need our logo design help:

"Hey there! The Caturday clan has asked that we get a logo for the Helper Piranha. Helper Piranha are those wonderful, kind, giving farkers who see someone in need, and will fight each other to get to help. These ladies and gents have helped with everything from vet bills to heating bills to basics needed for medical emergencies. They are truly wonderful people, and have asked that I beg, borrow or steal a logo. So... help?

In addition to piranha, we tend to quote Ohana..."

If you need further info, let me know. Please note this is pro bono. However, you will receive their love and gratitude forever more.

I am brainstorming as well. If anyone would like to collaborate, I'm happy to do so. Thank you!

A watercolor still life of gardening stuff that I did a while back. I thought it might be appropriate as we near the end of gardening season (at least here in Minnesota).

I've been making some progress learning to watercolor based on suggestions from last week. I wasn't able to work on this one very long, but I'm encouraged by how it turned out.
