Snowfall Castle Wooden Sign #1: A Ski Lodge Wooden Sign, Lazy River Studio

4 days ago by Scott | 2 comments »

For my first blog entry, I will pick up with a new wood sign project I just started. This is a custom wooden sign for a vacation home in the mountains of UT. The sign will have a banner and an area for logo / art. My process is one part machining and a second part hand carving. Its an interesting fusion. The name of the home is called “snowfall castle”. Thanks for looking, Scott. Lazy River Studio.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1390: Ready to Cut my New SLEIGH!

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

I have to admit that the past couple of weeks have not been easy. Please understand that I am NOT whining about things, but I haven't been feeling my usual self and as a designer, that affects just about everything that I do. The closing of the magazines has really taken a toll on me. It is getting better each day, but I feel as if I would be lying to you all if I put on a front when I wrote here each day and acted as if I wasn't affected. After all, for nearly seventeen years I ...

Hand Plane restoration

4 days ago by skidooraceing | 3 comments »

I do not get on here very often but when I do I really enjoy reading and seeing what everyone else does with hand planes and wood working. I wanted to post some pictures of my first ever hand plane restoration. My first was plane was not one with very much value so if I messed up it would not be a big deal. I had bought about ten rusty planes at an auction for like $40 dollars so that I could fix them up and use them. One of the planes was a Trustworthy and believe its a no. 4 (Stanley ...

Open Apron Nesting Tables #2: Ebonizing and Burl Matching

5 days ago by shipwright | 20 comments »

I didn’t take any photos of the ebonizing process originally, but since several people expressed an interest I made a little video today. It shows the process in real time on a piece of off-cut Walnut from one of the legs. Ebonizing is a simple process that lots of people do and it works well on any naturally high tannin wood. I understand that with the addition of outside tannin in the form of a tea wash it can be effective on non tannin bearing woods as well although I have no expe...

FANTASY MARQUETRY #6: Learning to drive my Chevalet

5 days ago by stefang | 16 comments »

After getting the packet ready for sawing I put clear packing tape on the top and bottom, partly to lubricate the blade and more importantly to give a slick surface to slide well in my Chevalet clamp. Another advantage was to protect the paper design, as shown below. After that the fun began. I drilled an entry hole in the hat band buckle which will be eliminated with a later cutting and put the cut out on the picture. It slid around a lot, so I cut a piece of transparent plastic s...
