My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1841: Classic Amy Joanne Halloween Ornament Club

06-14-2017 12:29 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

One of the best things about being a designer is that I get to 'hang around' other artistic and creative people. With all the negativity in the world these days, it is good to have a place to focus where only positive thoughts are allowed inside. That is how I treat my "Creative Place". Because my Creative Place is not a physical location and more or less a state of mind, I can be there anytime I wish, any day of the week. I only have to shift my thinking a bit and I ca...

rebuilding an old knife #1: Knife restoration

06-14-2017 12:56 AM by jeffswildwood | 8 comments »

Hello. This is my first blog series on something I think will be fun. Of coarse I would like all the help and advice I can get as I am very new at this. I redid the handle on a knife a while ago and really enjoyed it. Since then I had wanted to try it again and began searching for a worthy one to do. Well, I found one and thought I would share the journey as I may have bit off more then I can chew. Here is the one I found to do. This guy is in...

Adventures in Lutherie #12: A few shots from my day

06-13-2017 09:04 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

I’ve been going through the ‘bone pile’ in the shop, looking for specimens that I think I have the ability to repair. The best way to learn is to do, and since these were actually already in the scrap box, how could I possibly goof anything up? My boss once said to me that if I goof something up, we’ll just take it apart and fix it. These first two shots are of a 3/4 violin that had a missing corner on the upper left C bout. The top of violins is spruce, IE the same...

Shop Sweet Shop #10: Equipment and Material Hoist

06-13-2017 04:27 PM by magaoitin | 1 comment »

I decided I needed an equipment lift in my shop, not only for off loading goodies bought at auctions, but to help me in removing and storing the canopy on my truck, so said goodies could be hauled home easily. Trying to remove a truck canopy alone is a major pain. Ideally I would prefer a Jib Crane for equipment lifts in and out of my truck, but that wouldn’t leave me any opportunity to store the canopy out of the way, plus I can’t justify $800-$1000 for the occasional use. Since I have sc...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1840: The "Maiden Voyage" Completed!

06-13-2017 12:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

After what seemed like a long, long time, I have finally completed the first (and largest and most complex) piece from Lynne Andrews' Inspirational Ark series! I can't express the wonderful sense of accomplishment that I feel right now. It isn't that the piece was particularly difficult or complex, but it has been painted at a time when I have been incredibly busy (ironically – from cutting ARKS for this series) and my part of our business was somewhat being re-shaped and tu...

Plantation Shutters #12: I just wasted all this wood because of a simple moronic mistake

06-13-2017 03:23 AM by Holbs | 10 comments »

As stated earlier in my blog entry, I am a newb in the realm of sanding & finishing, coming from the world of plywood and construction lumber for all of my projects. I am learning as I go happily but mistakes will come about. I guess I’m lucky that I messed up this wood for this project now, instead of more costly and quantity of lumber later. I can not use the pieces I dimensioned for this project because I got carried away ROS’ing faces & edges which rounded over below...

Solar Kiln

06-12-2017 07:52 PM by highlander33 | 2 comments »

I Built this Solar Kiln about 6-9 months ago, and just used it with the Sun for Heat as shown by the last few pictures and it worked fairly well until an Engineer friend of mine suggested that I hook up a Solar Panel for heating Water that I had laying around , I came across 4 of them from a job I did a couple of years ago and didn’t really have a use for them and couldn’t just throw them away . So he came up with this simple way to heat the Solar Kiln with a used Radiator I pick...
