My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1261: Scroll Saw Class Entries Updated

03-05-2014 12:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Good day to you all. It had come to my attention that the links for many of the videos in my Lumberjocks online scroll saw class entries were missing. I have had several emails sent from those who wanted to see the videos that went along with the class lessons. They are all short cuts, but many found them very helpful to them when just beginning. I spent this morning re-linking them and now everything should be alright. The class link is here:

Becoming a Galoot #8: Rot and Rattlers

06-15-2014 07:55 PM by scruboak51 | 4 comments »

My efforts to get a nice slab cut from this beast was met with failure, but it was not without a good effort. I took every opportunity to sneak out in the garage this week and work on the big cut to rip this redwood root down; even if for only 5 minutes. Every little bit of effort adds up and makes the task seem less monotonous. I had made good progress and loosing our DSL connection on Thursday gave me an unexpected excuse to duck out of work and get some garage time in. By Friday afte...

Entertainment Center #2: Lumber selection

11-24-2009 05:26 AM by Loogie | 4 comments »

Cherry was specified for the piece so we took a drive up to Hearne Hardwoods in Oxford, Pa. They have a fantastic selection of Cherry. I really wanted to get some wide boards for the top and sides. When we got to Hearne they showed my some 12” wide boards that they had that were almost completely clear and just under 12’ long. The problem was that the entertainment center is to be 6’ long so I would be just shy with one board and I wasn’t willing to pay the wide board ...

30 projects in 30 days #15: round III... around the corner

02-27-2010 05:24 PM by scottb | 4 comments »

Ok, the snow is still falling, but the temps are rising – so to speak. We are coming out of winter, and I’m thinking of putting the new – still not as of yet set up – shop though its paces. Its looking like a 30 projects in 30 days challenge this April or June. I’m shooting for April, hoping that allows me enough time to get the barest essentials unpacked and set up. I just dug out some chisels for work yesterday! The sharpening station on the other hand…...

Right now, i am in the process of making a candle holder for my wife. I am using some scrap oak for the legs, and quite possibly some maple for the tops and sides.

Sorry been so long……..... finished the project and gave it to my wife for her birthday……. she took it to work and I forgot to take pictu...

Caught in the headlights #1: The Pattern

02-22-2011 04:53 PM by wdkits1 | 4 comments »

My intention is to make this a WIP but it will be spread out over the next couple of months as I will only be working on it when my work schedule permits. I did manage to get the frame done . 20”x 24” walnut with a birds -eye maple accent allowing 1/2” recess inside the frame for the intarsia. I also began drawing the pattern. Because I hand draw my patterns I start off by making a scaled grid (in this case 1/2”=1”).This photo shows the grid layout on the inte...
