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

10-23-2014 11:22 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 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...

Treasure Box - Series #2 - Post #14: Cutting bone

10-23-2014 01:52 AM by Patricelejeune | 4 comments »

For those who follow this thread, you know we have been struggling on dying bone. We may have found the solution, at least one of them. Here is a test piece that seems to be dyed all the way through To help the dye to penetrate all the way through the bone I decided to dye the pieces already cut. I had my papers already prepared from the start waiting for the solution The intended green bone pieces were highlighted in green (of course) on the drawing. I cut ...

10-22-2014 09:47 PM by ScottM1 | 0 comments »

Hello everyone. Here is the second video on how to draw a raised panel trunk in ecabinets. In this video I will show you how to name the stretchers to aide in organizing the parts plus I will show you how to use the shape manager to draw the cutters for the raised panels as well as the rails and stiles and the moldings. We will also be resizing the trunk to make sure that everything works properly. Then we will apply these cutters to the parts so check it out and let me know what you think.ht...

Note about Cajon & New Sander

10-22-2014 07:26 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

Just a random blog this time. The cajon I’m working on has chosen which side will be the bottom. When I began rounding over the corners with a 1/2 inch roundover router bit, the grain in the plywood began splitting away from the surface. I caught it in time to minimize it on the rest of that edge, and I managed to eliminate it on the rest of the box. I also made the damage very unnoticeable using some wood colored epoxy that I had. That, plus making that side the bottom will be the f...

State oscillating spindle sander #1: A new way to run a 3 phase motor

10-22-2014 07:12 PM by gpastor | 3 comments »

I found this sander on Creaglist a few weeks ago—-Old state spindle sander, 3 phase, needs repair (bearings?) $300.00 I have been looking for an oscillating spindle sander but I didn’t want one from the big box stores. This one fit the bill but not running and it has a 3 phase motor. Not to good… My thought was to replace the motor, I don’t have 3 phase power in shop anyway. So once I got it all tore down I found that just need cleaned out and new oil added to the...

History #1: History of Woodcarving

10-22-2014 06:39 PM by VobliX | 1 comment »

Woodcarving has been around just about as long as man has been upon this earth. Due to wood being a material that will not withstand the test of time, woodcarvings must be protected and taken care of if they are to endure. Unlike stone carvings or sculptures that might be buried for thousands of years, due to wars and conquests or for whatever the reason and survive, imagine what would happen to a woodcarving or woodsculpture under those conditions. Between the elements and the insects, in a ...

CHRISTMAS GIFT BASKETS #6: The Devil's Bow-ties

10-22-2014 01:07 PM by stefang | 9 comments »

Today I have been working on the basket bottoms. They are made from 2 pieces with a glue joint down the middle. The wood is pretty thin, about 5 mm, so I want to reinforce them with bow ties, or butterflies as some call them. These can be dispensed with if you use a panel for the bottom instead, but I think the bow ties are an attractive feature and people usually comment on them and so I think it is worth the extra time it takes to cut put them in, but only if they are functional as IMHO...

Scissor horses are all the rage... right?

10-22-2014 12:13 PM by Craftsman on the lake | 3 comments »

These scissor horses are popping up here and there on LJ’s since their introduction. And like many, I thought… a great idea. I do a lot of work with molding and flooring here. I usually bring in my old horses, put a piece of plywood over them and set up shop where the work is. When I saw these horses I decided that they were a great thing and especially since I use a miter saw a lot. To make the I actually started by outlining both parts of the scissor legs on a large piece of pa...

Another Pause, But For a Good Cause.

10-22-2014 12:12 PM by BrockF | 0 comments »

Hello again fellow woodworkers. It’s now officially 1 year since the new shop/garage was built. I should be completing my big bench build this week and bringing the car back in at night, but sometimes things get put on hold. It just so happens we helped a friend with an elderly parent and the entire front of the shop is filled with bags and boxes to be donated to the Chicago Epilepsy Foundation. Gives us a wonderful feeling to be able to help them in their cause. A lot of people se...
