ScrollSaw Information and Resources #64: Magazine Subcriptions

1 day ago by jerrells | 5 comments »

I take both of the major Scroll saw magazines and have for many years. We recently noticed what we thought was an overpayment issue on our part so we contacted the magazine. We were informed the our subscription was not done DIRECTLY through them but through an unauthorized third part company that the have no connection with. In face they post, on their website a disclaimer, that unless you are mailing to a certain address that you are not dealing directly with them. Now we were getting wh...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1367: Travelling Down the Crackled Highway - A Learning Curve

1 day ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I always have a great feeling as I see the Purolator man driving away after a pickup. Usually it means that I just completed a project and it is on its way to the publisher.  That's always a feeling of relief for me, as more times than not I am coming from dealing with the nerves that accompany submitting to the magazines. Yesterday was no exception.While I still have some writing to do on the ornaments that I showed yesterday, I wanted to take a day that was a bit 'unstructured&...

A Strategy for Woodworking #12: How Design Starts

1 day ago by Gary Rogowski | 2 comments »

Design starts with a pattern in the sky, a curl in the stem of a plant, the swirl in a coffee cup. It starts with an idea. There is no one single place from which it begins. And so the designer must grab serendipity when it strikes and use it as a stepping stone, a starting point, and then choose from the infinite number of choices then possible. Inspiration is serendipitous. Design on the other hand is hard work and trials and errors and execution. It is iteration and reiteration. It has ...

Live Edge Chery Coffee Table from the Beginning #1: Choosing a Board, Initial Flattening

1 day ago by CharlesA | 2 comments »

Four months ago I asked some advice on how to construct a waterfall leg on a live edge table. I’m finally beginning construction after several things got in the way. The first step was finding the right board. The nearest sawmill to me (19 vs. 45 miles one way) was clean out of live edge pieces. I called the next closest sawmill and he was looking at $150-200 for a slab, so I decided to take a “chance on two 1 boards on CL on Craigslist. They had been sitting in a barn for g...

Building a Ditty Box--first project for my nephew #5: Triumphal Finish, A Long Entry

1 day ago by CharlesA | 1 comment »

My nephew didn’t want any more pics to go up until he had a chance to show it to his mother and grandmother (my sister), so I haven’t posted any update. However, since today was return to home day, all may be revealed. After finishing the main box, he cut and glued four cleats to the underside of the top. He clamped up the front and back cleats first, and then snuck up on the length of side cleats. They fit perfectly. I guess I didn’t take any pictures of him cuttin...

Filling the guts of your Dutch tool chest #4: Plane dividers lattice

1 day ago by Brad | 2 comments »

Fixtures really make this chest an excellent storage space. And since I intend to travel with my chest, I want it to travel well. By “well” I mean that I don’t want tools to be damaged in transit. As is, the virgin top space doesn’t meet that standard. So to ensure that things stay put during the rigors of a “Florida or Bust” road trip I created a number of fixtures. Top-section Fixture: plane dividers latticeOne of the reasons that my fixture layout worked out so well was because I...
