Finally sharing the Bag of Many Projects! Celtic key pattern embossed velvet bag, yellow silk lining, faux/vegan leather bottom engraved with a custom Celtic knotwork ring, kumihimo braided drawstring, custom skull beads. More photos,, project vid on the blog:
I finally got around to making a cover pattern for the larger hardcover journals and, did a couple with a new Viking longship design. Like the other covers, these are vegan/synthetic leather.
Someone made a paper craft reproduction of the “Let Glue Dry” block @laura_kampf uses in the shop. One that folds flat seemed like it would work better for me. Here is the origamic architecture pop up version! You can download the patterns from the EvermoreStud.io site and, make your own!
I whipped up this Arrow of Light plaque + shelf in the studio for a recent recipient. This is layers of laser-cut Baltic birch plywood, wood glue and, finished with birch edge banding. I haven’t done a lot of woodworking but, I think this came out okay. It will be finished by the recipient with an actual arrow and stain.
More photos and free design files on my EvermoreStud.io site.
First draft of trying to make some 3D SLA-printed resin skull beads! After printing, these got a layer of primer, a thin coat of something more bone-colored, a dark brown wash and, a matte poly finish. The hole should be a tiny bit smaller and, my painting needs some work but, I think they look pretty good.
I wrote up and made a video tutorial on custom embossing velvet using one of my Celtic key pattern designs.
Journal covers from vegan/synthetic leather, engraved with my Snowflake Celtic knotwork design (and a new corner piece I did just for these), saddle stitched by hand (using the stitching pony I made recently). This batch was personalized for the recipients. Thor cameo by @bc_craftsman (on IG).
I would love to see more people move to using open Internet platforms like Mastodon. I haven’t really been keeping up with posting here, mostly because it doesn’t feel much like anyone sees it. In the interest of there being a tiny bit more here for people to see, I’ll increase my efforts. For starters, I will follow with posts of a few recent projects.

I made this simple stitching pony for assorted studio work holding tasks. As I frequently do, I put the cut file and notes up at https://evermorestud.io/make-a-stitching-pony/ . So, if you want to make one, too, look there. There is also a full build video on my YouTube channel.

Celtic key pattern long box of hard maple inlaid with walnut and flocked interior. I think my second foray into laser-cut wood inlay went pretty well. This is probably not an optimal dice vault but, it looks good with these @norsefoundry turquoise gemstone dice. I’ll likely do a proper dice vault in the future.
