My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1350: Happy Birthday, America!

7 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I had a very busy day yesterday. I was surprised and thrilled at the response to the posting of my new patterns and surfaces in my ETSY shop. I also had several orders for wood pieces from other sources – including people that bought my wood kits from Artist's club previously and are looking for more. It is great to see that my long term thinking on this is working out. So much of owning and being successful business is thinking ahead and making decisions that are going to help the ...

Deep Thoughts - Reader Beware #14: Body and soul

7 days ago by Sandra | 11 comments »

I’m notorious for over-thinking, overanalyzing and basically spending too much energy navel-gazing. This blog is intended to get some of it out of my head. I’ll be glib, sarcastic and flippant in my other posts. Who knows how this one will turn out. It may be a train wreck, so reader beware! If navel-gazing doesn’t hold any appeal or distraction for you, move on. If you’re allergic to estrogen, move away quickly. My own personal rules are to not to spend more than 30 minutes on any one pos...

State of the shop and yay to new toys

7 days ago by Sanding2day | 3 comments »

My mother is set to semi retire at the end of this month and requested assistance removing some items from her home in order to increase her ability to change locations more effectively. Happy to assist and believed most of the items could be sold for an amount greater than the UHaul expense but was unfortunately incorrect on this. Have began pulling them apart for their pieces and generally been fairly pleased… Working on a commissioned toy box and have found adequate Red Oak mat...

SawStop or not? #4: Ugh--Evil SawStop, and an industry that you think loves you (but they really hate your fingers)

7 days ago by Rob | 17 comments »

By now everyone knows SawStop has evil lobbyists and lawyers trying to force their technology on us. Like many people, I was really wrapped up in this lobbying issue. For those who aren’t familiar with the effort, SawStop was trying to push through a government regulation that would require an advanced safety system like SawStop’s brake (oh, how convenient—SawStop makes those!) to be included on all new table saws. To-date such a feature has not been forced on anyone ...

Shop Stool #2: Becomes a Table

7 days ago by SPalm | 4 comments »

Well, the plan was to add turned stretchers. I had visions of a slight taper from the center with through tenons that were splined in the ends. Did not work out. I had so much trouble with chatter on the old cherry that I was not able to turn reliably at all. I could get it close and then sand to smooth, but it just did not go right. I am sure it was caused by my lack of turning skills. .So it went with rectangular stretchers. The plan was to make small offset mortises and use offset tenon...

SawStop or not? #3: The cheapest health insurance you can buy?

7 days ago by Rob | 5 comments »

In a recent thread about tool recommendations for a new shop, I made a comment that a SawStop saw is the cheapest health insurance you can buy. Most people don’t plan on cutting off their fingers on their table saws, and many woodworkers are quick to point out that the likelihood of any individual woodworker being seriously injured by a table saw on any given day is pretty slim. Frankly, I agree with both those comments and don’t intend to argue against them, but I do want to cl...
