Trotters Ridge Entrance Signs #1: Boards received and processed for blasting

07-10-2013 05:52 PM by Luke | 2 comments »

Here is a new project at the shop for some sandblasted 3D HDU signs for a subdivision entrance. You can see the 5×8’ board ready to be cut down to size for the two smaller signs. In order to sandblast them we have to first cut a rubber negative mask that will keep certain areas from being blasted away. That’s what you see on top of the table and later stuck to the boards themselves. Next step is the sandblaster which I won’t be able to get pics of but it’s a prett...

Workshop Overhaul #1: The Current State

08-27-2013 12:04 PM by freddyaudiophile | 2 comments »

So, since my shop was built 2 years ago, I have been slowly learning woodworking through various projects (shop jigs, various cutting sleds, small ‘fine furniture’ projects, and 20-odd cutting boards). As is the case with most people that foray into woodworking, I’m not truly satisfied with the state of organization in my shop. So, we navigate off to sites like this to share ideas and see what other folks are doing. My 22’ x 28’ shop is meant to be a multi-...

Scroll saw problems

02-16-2010 12:07 AM by Raker | 2 comments »

The Raker is having trouble using circular scroll saw blades with his Hegner saw. They break about an inch above the lower blade holder or they come out of the upper holder. Am I the only one having these problems? Tell me what to do I’ve got several projects to finish before gold season starts-I’m using Jeff Zaffinos patterns they are very complicated.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #890: Exchanging

11-29-2012 01:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I have written about this before, and I probably will again. I once again participated in an ornament exchange that was set up by the scrollers on Steve Good’s forum. It is an event that I look forward to every year, as it gives me a chance to experience not only the work of other scrollers, but also enjoy the friendship and sharing that it entails. I love exchanges. I think that it is a great way to learn about fellow crafts people and own a little piece of something created by the...

Home on the Hill - Intarsia Woodworking

03-12-2013 02:08 PM by Chris Mobley | 2 comments »

Creating custom intarsia woodworking often finds its best design from a story. One stormy day in April, not very different from any other day, tragedy struck in Alabama. My father was out for the morning working as usual. He decided to come home early because there were some reports that bad weather was coming. He could not have gotten home at any better of a time. As he pulled into the driveway, he had just enough time to find his wife, grab a few neighbors, and get into the panic room i...

Straighten 3/4 plywood?

03-06-2008 07:08 AM by Rick | 2 comments »

Hello and thanks for the many welcomes. I’m an advanced novice working on the floor of the ‘garage’ with a lousy table saw, PC router, hand saw and various straight guides. I just got a thickness plane & jointer through CL for 250 – I’m so excited. The manual for the jointer was updated in 1954, No more warped Home Depot wood. I just made 5 – 7’ x 32” bookcases and they came out pretty good, but I’m never satisfied with the trim I ...

Phew, shop reorg done.

06-25-2008 03:21 AM by Jon3 | 2 comments »

Well, it has been a long few months, but I’ve finally managed to clear some more space out in the shop and get things re-organized. It can be quite frustrating when you’re working on the shop itself, and not on actual projects in wood, but sometimes quite refreshing. I think I’ve gotten to the point where I want to put my hands back onto some wood, so I’ll be going through some of the projects that I’ve been sitting on, and get back into creating. In the mea...
