My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #11: New Days Bring New Ideas

06-13-2010 01:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts. – Eleanor Roosevelt. I read this quote and thought about it for a couple of minutes. It is short and to the point, but full of hope and a sense of adventure. The words are few, but very powerful. My day yesterday didn’t turn out so badly after all. I think it could have easily gone south, but all in all it was a good day. I learned a lot, got to reflect on some things, and also had an inspiration for another project. So ...

Table saw island #5: Power tool racks

06-13-2010 09:22 AM by 559dustdesigns | 6 comments »

I also finished the wiring, so the saw doesn’t require an extension cord and the handy electrical on the ends of the bench now in use. I had to add some more wiring to supply voltage to the tool chargers on the power tool racks. You may notice the tee track is installed across the top of the bench, This track will be used to secure the sliding a...

This is the first time I used Photobucket and the images are a bit odd sized to match the forum. I will fix them as I get stuff figured out. Ok, you want to make a piece the length and width of your stock: Take the end where you want to make the dovetails and right click to get the menu and select divide. You will want to m...

Making Changes (man in the mirror)

06-13-2010 05:25 AM by sawblade1 | 3 comments »

Good evening Lumberjocks, This week has been a slow one for me with operation X hitting a few snags (financially mainly) I didn’t have much to do but sit in my shop and mope about not going any further, and after a very discouraging week at work due to my supervisor getting an attitude with me because I asked for help because my knee was hurting and my partner called off he scolded me stating bluntly he did not care and I wasn’t getting any help and that I needed to get a car a...

Charles Neil lowboy build-along, #12 When I left you last time, I’d just finished with installing the drawer dividers.

It’s time to turn my attention to the side scrolls. I start by printing out the PDF that Charles provides for subscribers of his “Mastering Woodworking” series. After g...
