My First Real Attempt at a project. A shaker end Table #6: Been A while but making progress.

01-10-2011 01:01 AM by therookie | 2 comments »

Well it has been a long time since I added an entry to my blog so I thought that I would continue updating my progress on the two shaker end tables I am building. Now that I have a biscuit joiner and a dovetail jig I was able to make the drawers and have been doin pretty good. I have changed the design so I can cover up the end grain as best I could and decided to put on a walnut bread-board edge.The drawer sides and back have to put the pins in the front still and mill the grove for the bott...

Router Table by Julie #4: making the sides and back

02-18-2011 04:57 PM by ~Julie~ | 2 comments »

The sides and back of my router table will be pine, 2” wide stiles and rails with plywood panel inserts. I had quite a bit of left over 3/4” thick, 2”- 2 1/2” wide pine strips of varying lengths from other projects and used that.Since I didn’t take photos, I’m borrowing ones from my earlier post about making my shop cupboards, which have exactly the same style: the center rails have grooves on both the top and bottom to hold the panels: and ...

Workin' With What You've Got #2: Workin' With What You've Got #2:

05-14-2011 06:14 PM by Randy Price | 2 comments »

Necessity is the Mother of Invention In Workin’ With What You’ve Got – Part 1 I made the point that many woodworking operations can be accomplished through creative thinking and using tools you already have. In part 2 I continue with some tips on how I approached building the Taliesin Table Lamp, including some photos of the tools and jigs I made. A prominent feature of this lamp is all the 45 degree splined mitered corners. I do not have a miter saw and find the mite...

Cranky Sailor Workshop - The retirement chest #8: Putting it together

06-08-2011 01:04 AM by DynaBlue | 2 comments »

Well, I’ve spent the past while in sanding and oiling and rubbing, oh my! The oil finish on the ash colored up nicely and the top was pretty smooth. I moved to the 0000 steel wool and dark paste wax treatment today and what a difference that made! Smooth turned to glassy smooth and the box just looks wonderful. The grain in the ash picked up some of the dark wax and added a bit of detail that just went the extra mile. Yep, I’m happy with it. While I was waiting for the fin...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #495: Even Brighter Days Ahead

10-18-2011 12:18 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Well, I got back on track and actually accomplished a lot of small things yesterday (and some larger things, too!) Overall it wasn’t a bad day at all and I even had the time for a short nap with the three kitties in the middle of the afternoon. I don’t do that often, but I find that taking an hour out when I am tired really does wonders because it refuels me and I last much later than I would have and I am far more alert. I feel better too and I am starting to believe that a ca...

Saturday afternoon shopworks!

09-22-2012 09:58 PM by jjw5858 | 2 comments »

Autumn sails its way into late September as I was joyfully surprised at some random pieces my Father cut down in our woods that sat in front of the shop. He found a wonderful twisted piece of Sassafras that just begged to be honed into a hiking stick! I took the hatchet to certain areas and relieved some bark and sapwood where I thought best and with a little hewing and shaving I had a very rustic and different looking hiking stick for new paths on cooler days. The finished piece was just ...

My home school project #3: The top layer

05-13-2013 01:52 PM by Farrout | 2 comments »

The top two boxes are made out of reclaimed wood I got from an old coffee table I bought at a flea market.I think it’s cherry, but I’m not sure.The pieces are planned down to 3/8” and are 2 1/8” wide.The joints on this one are ‘mini’ box joints done on the PC 4213 jig.The bottom has a 3/16” rabbit cut to hold a piece of hard board.The covers are 1/2” pine with rounded over edges and rabbit cut on the table router to fit inside the box.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1430: Site Update In Progress

10-23-2014 11:22 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Lately we have been trying to keep updating our site about every two weeks. It seems with the holiday season approaching, we have lots of new things and we don't like to overwhelm everyone with too many new choices at a time. I guess it is a good problem to have. Since I do more painting things, they tend to take a little longer to complete than the scrolling patterns that I do. And even when I do scroll pieces, I like to offer different 'versions' so that our customers can c...
