Craftscape my Joinery #3: Craft show and Wine fest in PA

10-09-2010 12:05 AM by poroskywood | 5 comments »

So the next event was a Craft Show back in Hawley PA on Sept 11th and we did much better this time. We left tired and happy. It was a beautiful day and a lot of people came through. I’ll just post up some pics here…nice and quick..and easy..thanks Martin. The next event was another Wine Fest in Honesdale PA on Sept 26. Another wonderful day. Although we did not sell as much as we did at the craft show, Brandy and I still had a great time. This Wine Fest mixed the Craft Ve...

Woodworkers Source Online Order

10-08-2010 08:14 PM by SouthpawCA | 10 comments »

I have a smallish vehicle, consequently when I need wood I cannot always just run out and buy a number of board feet and fit it in the car. That’s where online ordering comes in handy. I’ve ordered from Woodworkers Source a few times in the past and have been happy with what I received each time. This time I’d thought I’d share with you how my order arrived. Woodworkers Source has a sale on now (I always try to catch their sales) on all exotics. If you order one...

totally off topic -just reaching out-

My well quit working. As my home in the city is in the process of foreclosure, i feel very compelled to beg my father to let me move to his nearby land that i frequent. This would mean transitioning to a more permanent state of simplicity and sustenance living (which i actually crave to attempt, as i feel the stressors involved in my current social climate and lifestyle are reducing me to a blithering idiot with the onset of subsequent health issues nearing daily). -Only, last weekend th...

Shoe Carving Challenge #7: Creativity

10-08-2010 05:09 PM by MsDebbieP | 18 comments »

Oct. 8/10 This morning, feedback from my shoe carving peers got me thinking about “creativity”. My mind, and Spirit, I guess, are very creative. They really enjoy thinking and envisioning the possibilities. Yesterday, I started feeling comfortable with the carving process, giving me some breathing room, and my creative side kicked into gear. I am now seeing lots of new projects ready to unfold. This blossoming of creativity, however, gives me another challenge because the...

Powermatic Model 15 Planer refurb--vintage 1995 #3: ...I should call this Blog fixing up old stuff, but I need help fast.

10-08-2010 02:41 PM by Retseih | 7 comments »

It’s Friday morning 0’Dark thirty…can’t sleep thinking about the days challenges. I’m trudging through the snow out to my workshop waiting for the coffee to brew while I fire up the wood stove…(OK I made up the snow part, but it is supposed to get really cold next Tuesday.) I will get right to the point. I have this Powermatic Planer I picked up from the local High School when it was deemed too dangerous for the kids making clocks to use. No offense t...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #127: Scrollgirl's Day Off

10-08-2010 02:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Besides the days I take small road trips, it is rare for me to have what I would officially call a “day off”. Actually, I don’t think that it is possible. My work is so entwined with my personal life that I am unable separate the two aspects of my life. I only think this would be a bad thing if I didn’t love my job as much as I do. I get frequent warnings from many well-wishers who tell me that by doing woodworking as a “job” I have put myself at risk o...

QUOINS AS CLAMPS

10-08-2010 01:38 PM by EMVarona | 5 comments »

Printing used to be one of my hobbies. I have an antique hand operated platen press (letterpress) complete with metal types (fonts) and accessories. I have not done much letterpress printing since the desk top computer came in. In letterpress printing, the metal types are assembled in words and sentences and clamped down in a metal frame. The devices used to clamp are called quoins. Very often ideas pop-up from the most unlikely places. The quoin is thought of as a device related to pri...
