    Beautiful “first try,” Steve!
    and yeah, I noticed that finger-count, too… but it’s not fingers, it’s straw, right?
    easy cover.

    That extra finger is a tribute to all the woodworkers who have lost a finger fighting for the honor of their craft. Those fingers have to go somewhere.

    If a traitor like Benedict Arnold can have his left leg memorialized, why not honorable woodworkers’ lost digits?

    That’s not an extra finger.

    Steve slipped with the scroll saw when cutting out the scarecrow’s pants and cut off another part of his anatomy. He just glued it back on in the wrong spot.

    The original design was for an entire family of scarecrows, but Steve’s scroll saw accident prevented the scarecrow from having any children.

    Poor guy. He’s made almost entirely out of wood, but can’t get wood anymore.

    If you are against paint for the facial features, you can always try wood burning them on.

    Intarsia is a technique used to incorporate areas of color into your knitting. This could mean pictures, shapes or polka dots. For each block of contrasting color you will use a different length of yarn. The yarn is not carried across the back of the work, as in Fair Isle, but rather twisted around the main color at the edges of the secondary color.

    Intricate designs require some advanced skills in woodworking and are usually made through carving. This kind of woodworking designs can also go from simple like basic shapes (circles, squares, hearts, stars etc.) to complex patterns like floral garlands or even scenes or landscapes. The latter require a lot of attention for details and focus. Thus, the best intricate designs are made using sharp cutting tools. Sometimes, additional devices are used for even a more beautiful effect. One such device can be the pyrographer, which helps the crafter make extremely detailed patterns with a fine touch.
