A new home #5: Why I have been too busy to be on here. Obviously, more results.

2 days ago by derosa | 5 comments »

Between losing part of a job, a toddler, a at the time 8 month old and having to move twice life has been too hectic to be on here. Not to mention the 7 months it took to get DSL, 4 of the 5 telephone poles that surround our house has service going to them but the one that feeds power to our house didn’t. On top of that there are a limited number of available spots on the service to keep it from being too slow out here. But now that things have stabilized, I once again have a shop space...

Mesquite Tree #2: Time for Tree to Come down

2 days ago by Blackie_ | 11 comments »

The story continues into this past couple weeks of 4/2014 12 years later, I am now deep into my woodworking and the Mesquite was on it’s last leg, wasn’t providing the shade it used to aside the thorns falling to the ground and the seed pods that my dog was eating, for these reasons I decided to go ahead and take the tree down. Mesquites along with oaks have many great uses, the most popular is their use in BBQ, there’s nothing like meat cooked over Mesquite, they also...

Mesquite Tree #1: Mesquite Tree Coming Down

2 days ago by Blackie_ | 8 comments »

This story starts around the time I purchased the house back in 1996 with this house in the back yard came a Mesquite tree, I had not yet got into woodworking during this period and the Mesquite was in it’s prime full of brilliant green color and great shade. This neighborhood was established in the mid 80s and it bewilders me as to why the tree was left, as Mesquite are labeled as a trash tree and are normally removed during development but I am glad they left it as I became the proud ...

The Slippery Slope #15: W. Tyzack, Sons & Turner saw

2 days ago by chrisstef | 18 comments »

The sickness is back and its bad, real bad. To satisfy my urges for rust and vintage tools I finally turned to ebay. I cant believe I did it. I always enjoyed the hunt and was satisfied in what I could scrounge up in the wild That is until I got into back saws. They don’t come around too much in the wild nevermind ones with English heritage to them. So I loaded up a paypal account with a few bucks and went on an internet hunt. I turned up this little 10” 16 ppi dovetail saw...

Making a Ceiling Beam #2: Installing the Beam

2 days ago by ~Julie~ | 4 comments »

As I said previously my beam is made like this, with the bottom piece having tongues on each edge which sit in grooves in the side pieces. So the next thing I did was put grooves in all the side pieces and made rabbets on the bottom pieces, which left the tongues to go into the grooves. The next job was to stain all the pieces: I glued just one side piece to the bottom piece, this would allow me (actually my husband) to wire up the lights easier than trying to do it with a completed bea...

Holly's Jasper #10: Holly's Jasper #10

Did some repair work today. Broke off a small piece of the jowl and almost let it go, but decided to do the full workup. homemade clamp for the chip, hand shaved inserts for the band saw over cuts. A little fitting, gluing, and tapping them home, then leaving them to dry did the trick. Shaving off the excess, and the repair is almost done….

Desk Repair #2: Routing the trim...

3 days ago by RaggedKerf | 0 comments »

Today, taking advantage of the 50° temperatures outside after another cold snap (yes, it snowed two days ago) I used my hand planes to knock down the slight lip on the maple support of the shortened desktop and the pine trim piece I glued up last time. It only took a few minutes – it took me longer to remember how to stand and hold the thing than it did to start the shavings flying. It’s been entirely too long since I was in the shop. Nevertheless, I quickly had a nice leve...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1294: Website Updated

3 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Yesterday I spent the day writing our bi-monthly newsletter and sending it out to our customers. We have been doing pretty well with gaining new subscribers as out business continues to grow. We are also happy that we seem to be figuring out how to send a proper newsletter so that the mail servers don’t view it as SPAM and block it. For a while, we were getting several hundred emails bounced back to us whenever we sent out an issue. This was annoying because not only did it clog up my...
