My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #250: The Business of Scroll Sawing

02-08-2011 02:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Work has been incredibly busy of late. I mean that in a good way. I don’t always get what I intend to get done, but it feels good to have a growing business and interact so much with so many interesting people. I sent out the notices regarding the site update on Sunday. That has seemed stir up a great amount of activity. I say this like it is unusual because I can remember not so long ago when sales on the site were almost non-existent. I am quite happy that we took the time to ...

Hello LJ’s, Last week I started my own blog with the help of I also wanted to do something like this to come in contact with more woodworkers. It also comes in handy when people want to know what i make. Now I can tell them to visit the blog and they can read all about it. The language is dutch because that’s easiest for me to write in. I’ve build an a translator and I want to know what you guys/girls think about my first setup. All comments are very wel...

Rogue Fine Living #2: Standerdize

02-08-2011 07:28 AM by Rogue | 2 comments »

There is possibly no greater challenge for functional art than standardization. For most makers, you’d sware it was a four letter, get-your-mouth-washed-out-with-soap, filthy, word. If you dare to utter “standardize” in your college art class, you are sure to receive an F on your next project. The world of art does not square with having to work inside set parameters. However, like it or not, it’s a fact that those of us that make things that are to actually be used must accept and deal w...

Extremely Average #320: I have done a terrible job...

02-08-2011 06:17 AM by Ecocandle | 6 comments »

Hello All, I have been writing a lot, but have done a terrible job of updating LJ. I haven’t done much on woodworking though, so I haven’t been around. The Henry Wood is coming along, in fact, I just posted chapter 64. So that means there are about 19 more chapters, if you haven’t been checking my site daily. I believe the last one was 45. I think most people from LJ who have been reading Henry Wood, do stop in daily, so I haven’t felt like clogging up the bl...

Building My Work Shop #15: Grizzly TS Repost & Updates

02-08-2011 04:39 AM by Crushgroovin | 6 comments »

Well one of the bitter angry little minds here at LJ’s reported me to The MAN fo posting my Grizzly resurrection story under the wrong section. So here we go again now in the proper area. It all just confirms my thoughts that the people on my banned aren’t worth my time. So sad that someone would have such a great amount of low self esteem. We can all just pray that one day that guys like Bently move out of their moms basement and maybe date a real flesh and blood woman. LOL th...

Tools, Reviews, and my Website…

02-08-2011 03:53 AM by christopheralan | 4 comments »

I have been working hard at my website doing tool reviews and updates. I have almost all of my power and hand tools posted as pictures in my gallery. I am still trying to redesign the site to increase traffic and ease use. I find it interesting what other people are using in their shops and maybe others will want to look in my drawers too… I couldn’t resist. I spent most of my Friday night finding and loading pictures. I took a lot longer that I had wanted, but I made some good progr...

Kitchen Reno #2: About the Cherry...

02-08-2011 03:37 AM by jonww | 4 comments »

A gift from Uncle Earle In late 2009, while packing up Aunt Verona’s (Diane’s sister) farmhouse in rural New Brunswick, I stumbled across 150 bd feet (mostly 4/4 and some 6/4 boards) of stickered Black Cherry in the damp cellar. It turns out that uncle Earle (Verona’s late husband) had been storing this wood for a purpose unknown to anyone. Cherry doesn’t grow in abundance in this part of the world so I am not sure where he got this wood. He was however in the lum...
