My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #97: A Very Exhilarating Day

09-08-2010 01:55 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I really don’t like drama. I guess I have had enough of it in my life to last my entire lifetime. There are people who thrive on it I know, but I don’t think I am one of them. I get really nervous and queasy when there is confrontation. I guess that is why I like writing so much. I can express myself without worrying about being bullied or cut off. In general, I think I am not an aggressive person. On paper, I am pretty good at standing up for myself and all but in real life...

Shop Journal #1: Shop Safety Outside of the Shop.

09-08-2010 07:16 AM by Brian Havens | 3 comments »

I do not really care for home improvement projects. Well, perhaps that is a little harsh. I should say that I do not enjoy them nearly as much as designing and building fine furniture. The other part of home improvement that I do not like is that I seem to be much more prone to injury doing home improvement projects. more....

Hello, ...but I didn’t really talk much about woodworking tonight. I participated in a blogoff and the theme was ‘My Slice of Heaven’. So I talked about photography. Lots of photos, but no woodworking. Thanks, Brian

Bookcase and Wall entertainment unit #6: final assembly stages

09-08-2010 03:43 AM by rando1 | 3 comments »

Well, the final assembly stages are coming together.We have spent quite a bit of time cutting and fitting together the pieces for the upper and lower units of the entertainment center. quite a bit of time was spent setting up the router with the bead detail for the face frames of the units. A jig was built to work around the bit set that I came across at the IWF show. Once the jig was built and set up the actual cutting the frames went very quickly. some final assembly and glue up and a ve...

The Torque Workcentre is FINALLY in it’s new home.I will admit it has been some time since the box arrived from Australia,good things are worth waiting for !I was actually waiting on my husband to clean out the half of the garage he claimed as his,because without this extra room I had no place to set her up.I can’t really complain because in the process of cleaning he painted the walls and ceiling to reflect better light,and he hung a shop light for me over the Torque work area. W...

Victorian Skater Pond Scene #5: "Edouard" and "Dora"

09-08-2010 02:34 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Well, it looks as if I was right! Pierre seems to have gotten a little too reckless and knocked poor Edouard over! What a nuisance! From SLDP103 Skating Pond Figures But thank goodness Dora is there to help him get back on his feet. You know what they say . . . behind every great man is a woman! (Well, at least the women say that!) From SLDP103 Skating Pond Figures

Work table progress #1: Work table progress

09-08-2010 02:07 AM by Cato | 2 comments »

Ah figured out how to start a series of blog. So a little progress today on my glue ups for the table top. Scraped and sanded the glue lines from yesterday and then ran all the boards for a final pass thru the planer while they would still fit. Then glued up one of the last three sections, so just two to go. Here are the pics of the glue up and the other two sections that will get glued tomorrow, and then just one more to go. Only going to do one per day now that the top is getting much...

Finally back in the shop!

09-08-2010 01:07 AM by MoreWoodPlease | 2 comments »

Wow, what a hot summer on Long Island. Every time I attempted to make sawdust, I started to sweat on the tools, and then the wood. My shop has heat, but no AC so the summer months are spent reading the array of magizines that come in the mail, and trips to the local library to find a jem in the woodworking section. Finally I’m back in the shop. Currently I’m finishing the last of three cherry display cases for an optomistrist friend so he can display eyeglass frames in h...
