Notes from a non-blogger

02-27-2014 06:38 PM by Woodbutchery | 0 comments »

So. If he’s a non-blogger, why is he writing a blog? I’ll admit it. I could have put up in the title “Notes from an inconsistent blogger”, but if I’m going to do this, I’m wanting someone to read it, and so far you applied, so here we go. Next time I’ll go with something that’s closer to the truth and, probably, more boring. A while back I wrote about having re-discovered the fun in the hobby, and even posted my grandson’s toy che...

Best birthday gift ever #1: Early gift!

03-18-2014 12:37 PM by rhybeka | 1 comment »

sooo my birthday isn’t actually until April…the 2nd to be exact (yes I’m one of those people who thinks age is only a number – since most days I feel older than I am already ;), but Mr. D (aka Don or Mr. Timetestedtools) was kind enough to have a block plane on hand that I have been keeping my eyes open for for a while. I’m still a major newb when it comes to planes – the only other plane I own is a WoodRiver #4 and I’m still trying to cover the basic...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1283: More on Using Paper in Your Projects

04-03-2014 11:37 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Today’s post will be a short one. I was really thrilled that so many people commented on yesterday’s blog where I posted the “test” kitties using beautiful paper that I printed myself and DecoArt's Decoupage Medium. I had lots of questions regarding techniques and supplies and I pretty much spent the day answering questions and working on a new pattern using this method. Although this can be applied to just about anything you wish, I think that many of you lik...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1298: A Contest

04-22-2014 11:18 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Many of you may have already heard about Steve Good’s blog. For several years now, Steve puts out a blog nearly every day to promote scroll sawing. In fact, it is because of Steve that I began my own blog on the site and now have nearly 1300 entries. He has become a friend and a mentor of mine, and he was the one who introduced me to Steve’s blog and website is great. Not only does it have the blog, but it also has a wonderful and active foru...

Workshop Development #106: Clearing the (compressed) air.

06-06-2014 05:47 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

I did some additions to my compressed air system, by adding a Central Pneumatic Desiccant Dryer / Oil Removal filter, and coupler bracket. I also chased down the last few leaks, and replaced a defective replacement regulator on my HF 8 gallon compressor. Not sure if you remember, but I managed to cause at MY fault on the original regulators fault, the destruction of the OEM regulator on my small compressor a few years ago. If I recall correctly I dropped something on the compressor like th...

Mother and Daughter workshop #1: Demolition!

06-30-2014 06:26 PM by ejvc | 3 comments »

In the new house we have a whole basement room for a workshop! And we have two workbenches (one came with the house in an attic, one I scored at a second-hand shop)! But the difficulty is, we can’t put the workbenches in the workshop because of an enormous MDF table in the middle of the room. The table would be useful to put machines on. But we don’t have machines. And it doesn’t have vices or anything to clamp with. So—tonight we began to demolish this table. ...

Tool Box #2: case work

08-12-2014 11:01 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Ok, spent a bit of time getting the case put together. Things just seem to roost on my benchtop. Setting the panels upside down on an almost flat benchtop. Clamp an end panel to the front/back panel. The longer panels have a series of counter-bored screw holes, about seven per corner. Clamp a corner together, add a few screws, move the clamp a bit to uncover the one or two that are hiding under them. Work my way around, by adding the other end panel, rotate the three piece set aro...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1429: Busy Times

10-22-2014 11:56 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

With the holidays quickly approaching, I can see all of my creative friends kicking things into high gear. Many people are not only doing items for craft shows, but also for thie own holiday gift giving. I find that more people are looking to make gifts rather then buy them from the store. This is great news for designers and crafters alike, as not only does it keep us busy, but it helps perpetuate our hobbies and small businesses as well. Yesterday I didn't get as much as I would ha...
