Evolving Band Saw Project #2: Bit of practice pine

09-27-2010 01:39 PM by wyeth | 1 comment »

From time to time I had done a bit of practice carving , pyrography and edge finger jointing on some scrap pine so I wondered if I could work this up into something to fit the underwater theme of the band saw project. The idea of a cuttlefish and its prey began to take a vague shape in my imagination. So I penciled in some outlines and started carving. Not very promising yet but things should get better.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #116: Finished Drawing - On To Cutting

09-27-2010 01:16 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It was a good day yesterday. Again I am excited today because I get to cut out a new project. I finished designing my next candle holder yesterday and I have an extremely beautiful piece of padauk just waiting for the scroll saw this morning. It is so pretty, with bright orange and dark brown streaks running through it. Unfortunately with cutting a scroll saw design into it, you tend to lose the pattern of the grain. It isn’t like a box or something like that, but it is still a prett...

Evolving Band Saw Project #1: What to do with an old wooden spoon?

09-27-2010 10:01 AM by wyeth | 0 comments »

I created this about a year ago as a first band saw box project. First I had 2 small boxes that looked somewhat like fish but were only large enough for a couple of keys or maybe rings. Then got the idea of joining them using an old wooden spoon. The tip of the spoon became the fin ( draw-pull ) for the larger drawer and recently I added a bit of polished copper wire for the other fish drawer. Now I have to think of some use for this thing or something to add to the interest. ...

Beginning with this post I will pass along some tips and tricks that will improve your finishing skills and take some of the worry out of the process.

Incra Offset Router Table #4: Finishing Touches

09-27-2010 04:08 AM by SWM | 1 comment »

I feel like I need a cigar with a big red bow on it! I have almost 6 weeks in this bad boy from design to finish product. It was my excuse to “practice” lots of new (to me) methods and techniques. The drawer fronts were made from MDF and sealed with two coats of Zinnser seal coat. This worked pretty well at smoothing up the rough mdf edges. I chamfered the sides of the drawer faces and painted to match cabinet body. Each drawer was stacked right on top of the other with only a...
