My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #12: Tying Up Loose Ends

06-14-2010 01:57 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

As I sit down to write this morning, I feel as if I have little of interest to talk about. I pretty much am finishing up the things that have to go out to the magazine. I can proudly say that in the box I am sending three projects and two articles. The box won’t go out until tomorrow, but it will ensure my presence in another couple of issues of the magazine. How many? I don’t know. I guess that is up to the editors and the amount of space they need to fill. I can usually cou...

Don't you have to restart before you refinish? #1: Page 1 - The Restart, again.

06-14-2010 01:23 PM by Berg | 1 comment »

I’ve done this before. I have been in limbo for almost a year. Project limbo, shop limbo, life limbo. I have discovered turning during that time so all is not lost but working out of a 6×10 trailer is barely bearable. Still, limbo. Things are changing. My wife lost her job this winter, outsourced by three people whose names we cannot pronounce, which has forced us to reevaluate our situation. I am still gainfully employed. She gets to have all the fun. All this sounds like wh...

Just for Fun... #19: Parting is such Sweet Sorrow...

06-14-2010 04:28 AM by littlecope | 34 comments »

I had a whole fifteen minutes before the phone rang today and spent it parting the lid from the bottom of the latest box. I always get a sort of bittersweet feeling when I do that… It’s the “Last Act” of the making process. After that comes the Assembly Phase, with a lot more work to be sure, but all the fun of making the parts gone…Alas and woe is me… I guess I better hurry up and finish this thing so I can start another!!! :)But, I’ve got a very imp...

"Why is This Car Parked in My Shop?" Turning My One Car Garage Into A Shop #3: New FWW laminated Plywood Work bench

06-14-2010 04:12 AM by Brad_Nailor | 11 comments »

OK..So I am slowly but surely tweaking my garage into a shop..a little at a time. Before I launched into any real projects I wanted a proper work bench…the hollow core door across two plastic saw horses just wasn’t cutting it. I wanted something that was heavy duty, with thick legs like a traditional wood working bench, with mortise and tenon joinery..but I didn’t want to go through the whole learning curve..I just wanted a bench. I remembered seeing an article in FWW that ...

Not quite in the workshop... #14: Shop projects more or less on hole. (expletive deleted) Masonite siding!

06-14-2010 01:52 AM by dbhost | 2 comments »

So I am busting my rump trying to get the fence line level, and ready for installing the fence as you may or may not know, when I happened to glace between the side of the house, and the fence and saw something funny… What on earth could it be? Upon closer inspection, it came to light that, well my attic was apparently well illuminated due to the absolute failure of the existing Masonite siding. Or to sum that up. The cheap siding on the gables fell off… Now if the truck was...

A New Start

06-13-2010 08:03 PM by Seer | 4 comments »

We have finally gotten our new website off the ground. I stil;l have a lot of work keeping it going but I find it to be fun. When we get to add new projects we find it fullfilling to be able to create something we feel someone else will enjoy over the years. My wife got me into doing woodworking 3 years ago with the purchase of a second hand scrollsaw which I promptly wore out and upgraded me on my birthday where I started making my wooden spoons and kitchen tools. One year later I got my...
