How to use a KerfmakerOk, many asked me this question, and I have seen it again and again on LJ. If you need to find out how to make one, you can see my Kerfmaker 'Brass'n wood'.

To answer few of the questions that I got asked is I do build the complete bunk bed or loft bed whatever the customer ordered. Then after they are done either the customer picks up or I deliver the bed to them. I do it both ways.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #110: Cutting Today!

09-21-2010 12:07 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I got all of the important things I needed to get done yesterday. That was a good thing. I still have a list of so many things that still need to be done too though, and I am continuing on today. I am however, going to get to the scroll saw and get some cutting done. I have been working on an order for something on the side and I am determined to finish cutting it today. It’s funny how little time I get to spend ‘in the shop’ or actually physically cutting. When I st...

09-21-2010 05:05 AM by Ecocandle | 8 comments »

Hello All, Today the blog is back to normal (for almost everyone). There was an issue for one of my readers, who has a router which flagged my site last week during the hacking debacle. She has had trouble getting back to my site ans her router continues to block it. If any of you fine LJ folks are having troubles, it may be something similar. As for writing the blog, it was nice to not be railing against the evil hacker. I am moving on an continuing with my ikebana building. It is...
