My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1402: Busy Days are the BEST!

09-13-2014 12:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Those of you who know me know that my favorite season is quickly approaching. While I enjoy summer and even winter, I always think that autumn is the best time of year. I love the warm days and cool nights. I love the colors and crispness in the air. I also love seeing the beautiful foliage and colors that the season brings.I have many fond memories of this time of year. I always enjoyed school, as it was once again an opportunity to reconnect with friends that I missed seeing over the summer...

Largest Circular Saw?

09-13-2014 02:21 AM by socrbent | 6 comments »

While watching Redwood Kings I saw them using a huge circular saw with a 32 clearly on blade. Could that be 32”? Definitely would take two hands. Amazing.This 16” Makita was the largest I found on Google with a quick search

For the Sailors and Boat Lovers #6: Art that Floats: Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival 2014

09-12-2014 04:21 PM by shipwright | 23 comments »

Fine woodworking is not all about beautiful boxes and handsome furniture. Some of my favourite examples of fine woodworking float and transport their owners to far away places to boot. Last weekend I had the pleasure to take part in the annual Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival. Here are a few of my photos. This is an overview of about a quarter of the festival area. ......... tens of thousands of fine fits and joints out there. Thousands of them right here. A small part o...

Workbench #1: Getting my shop organized and needed space to WORK

09-12-2014 03:26 PM by MadJester | 9 comments »

Rather than try to lump this in with all the other things, I decided an ongoing project format was probably best for this one. My buddy had an old workbench top from some school workshop….not sure exactly where he got it, and it’s probably not a standard depth, but it worked out great for this project. I had the contractors save as much of the spare lumber as they could from the renovations that were happening on my building last winter, so the legs are made of 2” x 6̶...

Unboxing, installation, and test of the Leigh VRS vacuum attachment

09-12-2014 03:21 PM by Marty Backe | 1 comment »

I just purchased a Leigh VRS attachment for my Leigh dovetail jig. Decided to make an unboxing video where I show you what’s in the box and how it gets installed. I also take it for a test spin to see how well it works. In summary, I couldn’t be happier that I bought this. Just wish I had purchased it when first released. It’s a fantastic upgrade to the jig.

A Strategy for Woodworking #25: Agreement

09-12-2014 02:21 PM by Gary Rogowski | 4 comments »

You may have noticed. Woodworkers are almost always right in their opinion of things. Hard to find one who doesn’t completely agree with his last statement. Most of them are confident in their ability to be right. Almost all of the time too. Therefore I have come up with two axioms about woodworkers that I know to be true. I am also a woodworker so this must be right. These two things are the only things that woodworkers can agree upon. Number One: Wood moves. Now that do...

Oo-ooh, Say - Can - You - Saw?....

09-12-2014 01:38 PM by handsawgeek | 1 comment »

Our National Anthem – that patriotic, soaring, inspiring opus that musically represents our great nation – is sung to the tune of an old English gentleman’s society song. The original was called the ‘Anacreonic Song’, and was an ode to a 6th Century B.C. Greek poet named Anacreon, who was known for writing about wine, women, and… It can be reasonably deduced that the tune with varying lyrics found its way into many an 18th Century English pub! Us silly ‘Murrica...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1401: Autumn is Coming . . .

09-12-2014 12:17 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I need to start off today by thanking all of you for the wonderful comments and responses on my witch boot project that I posted yesterday. I was really overwhelmed by the many, many kind comments and inquiries as to when the patterns and kits will be available. I plan on spending the weekend working on writing up the patterns and figuring out the cost of the kits so that I can charge a fair price that will make everyone happy. Of course, the biggest cost will be the shipping. My boots wer...
