My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1446: New Ornaments in the Works

11-18-2014 12:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Today's post is going to be short (I promise!) I am busy at the drawing table creating a new pattern of ornaments for the scroll sawyers. My friend Leldon requested it and I always like to do what I can to accommodate him. He helps me so much with going over our patterns and proof reading for me. It is hard to proof read your own patterns. Especially for people like Keith and myself who crate so many of them. We try to keep a similar format to them and be consistent, but sometimes wh...

Wooden enclosed CNC router project hobby build, fun, fun, fun #4: Gantry parts and pieces

11-18-2014 05:46 AM by Jeff | 4 comments »

Greetings fellow woodworkers. :) Haven’t had a lot of time to work on the project but while mama was away I snuck in making a few parts and pieces of the gantry.Designed so at anytime I can split the gantry and replace the roller tracks or upgrade to steel if the aluminum doesn’t hold up. First few shots are just some fabrication in progress. Using cabinet conectors for assembly, auction buys a few years back; thought it was time to but em to good use. Large Pic La...

Windsor Chair #4: Easy Way to Make Chair Spokes

11-18-2014 02:37 AM by PeteCollin | 4 comments »

I tried so many ways to make spokes for the backs of my windsor chairs. I struggled with draw knives, spoke shaves, dowel makers, the lathe, and never got good results. After thinking hard on the problem, I figured out a mechanized way to crank them out easily!

Router Fence #3: Router Fence Completed

11-18-2014 12:59 AM by edwood1975 | 0 comments »

Well the fence is completed and not without its errors.. when assembling the outer adjustable faces I never compensated the distance between the knobs that I was using and the base that was already installed…ohh well .. In hindsight I should have put the sliding track up higher on the adjustable outer faces and everything would be fine… never the less I put my thinking cap on and solved the problem…

Making A Handsaw Handle -- Or Two

11-17-2014 08:16 PM by summerfi | 18 comments »

I picked up an old Disston No. 9 rip saw with a 30” blade at an auction last summer. The faint etch and size and position of the screw holes date the saw to 1871 – 1876. However, it had a crude user-made handle that needed to be replaced. By coincidence, a 30” Disston No. 9 showed up on eBay recently. The maker’s stamp on that saw dates it to the late 1840s – early 1850s, but the most interesting part about the saw was the handle. It’s a very stylish handle, but not the normal 3-lobed ...

Well I just got an Old Rockwell tablesaw on Friday night and am about to start checking it out.The name on the front of saw says 10” Tilting Arbor Saw but I haven’t found a Manual or parts guide that matches it 100% yet but I did find one for the 10” Contractors Saw that the Manual is pretty close to the same as this saw but the parts list I found is way off.First pic is the basic setup of the saw as I got it into the Apt. , note the motor is laying on the base since it wou...

How to make coved raised panel doors on your TS

11-17-2014 02:29 PM by Jake | 10 comments »

Hey all. First, thanks a lot to oluf who gave me a tip on how to use silicone instead of spaceballs to keep the panels form rattling. Secondly, this is going to be a long one, so bare with me if interested, if not, no big deal. :) Raised panel doors are very rare in Europe, so I will have a very posh kitchen when it’s all said and done, so I am very glad. The door with flat inset panels (as classic Euro doors are) looks plain crap when compared to the raised panel one, I know that, s...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1445: "Winter is Coming"

11-17-2014 02:04 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I know those are not words that all of us like hearing. But long before Game of Thrones was ever thought of, Keith used to tease me because I used that phrase frequently this time of year as I purchased extra essentials and prepared for the long, cold days ahead when we may not be able to get to the store. Being prepared is important and coming from Chicago, I was no stranger to sudden snow squalls which left the area crippled for sometimes several days. Now living in rural Nova Scotia, I fee...
