My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1613: Videos

08-31-2015 12:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I truly believe that I am very fortunate to live in a time when we have so many opportunities available to us via our computers. Not only does it allow us exposure to parts of the world that we may never be able to see, but it also is a great resource for learning new skills in ways we never thought possible. Last year, I was invited to teach a class in the program "Art Play Date 2015" which was organized by a wonderful teacher (and my friend) Kelly Hoernig. Kelly came up with ...

Turned Storage Container

08-31-2015 12:34 AM by terryR | 13 comments »

Here’s a fun project; a storage container for my wife turned on the lathe. I don’t have good hollowing tools, so digging out chips from wood deeper than 2” forces me to use my chisels in an unsupported way. That results in unexpected catches, and isn’t much fun at all. However, using segmented methods, I can potentially turn vessels as deep as 17”! (the realistic span on my midi-lathe) The key points to this method are:-using multiple layers to achieve ve...

Musing of an Old Geezer #3: How the Germ of a Little Idea Becomes an Entire Fleet of Little Boats!

08-30-2015 10:49 PM by GnarlyErik | 6 comments »

My daughter asked recently if I recalled the little ‘Note-In-A-Bottle’ ship I made for her when she was about seven. Like I could ever forget how thrilled she was when we actually heard back from it! It was a little ‘ship’ about a foot long rigged with a weighted keel underneath to keep it upright and a mast with a small sail to move it along with the wind. We mounted a plastic medicine bottle on top with her handwritten note inside. It was placed in the ocean off s...

Here are my finds for last week:2 – Irwin screwdrivers3 – Stanley No. 60 chiselsVaughan ball pein hammerVaughan soft face hammerWilton 4” viseAnd the coolest thing was the putty knife/spatula made by the Ontario Knife Company. It is very well made with a dovetailed walnut handle. I really like the old wood handled tools. They are fun to restore and make them look like new. And they work well. I got a great deal and everything you see was Made in America.

Yet another workbench #4: Hardware 1

08-30-2015 05:41 PM by JonasB | 0 comments »

Screw assembly The face vise screw mechanism is all DIY. Here are the piece parts. The hand-wheel has been kicking around my basement for 15 years. I remember buying it on Ebay for a project I never completed. It was too nice to throw away, so it waited and waited until now to find a purpose. The acme screw and nut I picked up on Ebay more recently. I cut the screw to length and drilled the hole that holds the hand-wheel setscrew. I found a 5 inch brass plate 1/2 inch thick also on...

Klein Solid Body Electric Travel Guitar #1: Planning and Roughing

08-30-2015 05:34 PM by Dave G | 0 comments »

My son is an accomplished jazz guitarist, having minored in music, playing every day several hours for 10+ years, and doing occasional jigs in NYC where he lives. I promised a hand-made personalized guitar for his graduation present. Now I’m going to make for him a Klein copy travel guitar. I found some plans online here by Eric Olds and here. I redrew them myself in sketchup because my son has certain specifications for the hardware that require laying out the neck/body conne...
