My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #555: Thank You to Ellen35!

12-17-2011 02:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I am involved in several different forums. My association with groups an online forums began back in 1997 when I got my first home computer. I was just beginning to work as a designer in the scroll saw and woodworking field and I had met some people at some of the scroll saw picnics who used the computer frequently. I thought it was a great way to keep in touch with others from all over the country, and keep our passion for woodworking alive throughout the year. As the internet grew, so...

Building a Home #3: Batter Up

12-31-2011 04:39 PM by grainhead | 0 comments »

Never having built anything larger than one man can carry, I had to do some homework. Between the local public library and the internet, there was plenty of info about home construction for free. However I have learned that not everyone who can write a book or create a webpage knows what they are talking about. Most large construction prodjects starts with batter boards. I wanted my batter boards dead level. If I could not get that correct, this prodject ends. I started with low tech pr...

Building my workshop

01-24-2012 05:23 PM by Dan Lyke | 12 comments »

It’s not done. I still have a few pieces of siding to run. I need to caulk the siding and trim. I need to finish the roof edge assembly. And there’s that small matter of 5 or 6 tons of dirt that needs to get lifted to the roof. However, my electrical inspection is today. The rainy season has come. And I can do things in my shop. My sweety Charlene asked me to put together a progress report, a look back at what we’ve done since July when I broke my rib digging out the f...

OK…. So, after fashioning the cone, I had to break out the epoxy and glue everything together Here I’ve got the epoxy and parts laid out…. Organization will set you free! (Eventually I’ll learn some) Then to mix the epoxy! I know it looks like snot, but it IS epoxy! I bought 60 min epoxy because this is the first time i’ve built one of these… I wanted plenty of time to screw this up! After everything was glued up, I used RTV to seal the whole un...

So we bought a house a few months ago that was built in 1907. So ther e are obviously many projects to start. I figured this one would be a good one to share. Its the stairwell! It was fully painted so I figured lets strip it down to see if the wood underneath could be brought back to life….nope its all low grade pine so…. new project is to resurface the whole thing. Some of you may have this so you know how fun it will be esp in an old house with nothing square. Lol

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #692: The Understudy

05-05-2012 11:32 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

After the rocky start yesterday morning, the day didn’t turn out to be all that bad. I truly do believe that attitude plays an important part in how we live our lives and that taking things in stride and moving on made a big difference in how I felt all day. One by one I was able to right all the things that went wrong and in the process, it gave me some time to think and reflect on all the other good thing in my life that are going well. Either I could have been crabby and spent my ...

Tale of the Olive Wood Rolling Pin #1: The Beginning

07-06-2012 12:02 AM by Dabilene | 2 comments »

Last year I started turning pens. I have really enjoyed being able to take a project from start to finish in 45 minutes (or so). A few friends have asked me to make pens for them with “sentimental” pieces of wood – an old tree that fell on their property, etc. One of my partners was going on a trip to Greece last month. Before leaving he asked me about making him a pen out of a piece of olive wood that he picked up while he was there. I gladly agreed and told him that...
