My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1616: Happy Birthday to my Grand Daughter, Willow!

09-04-2015 12:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I spent the day yesterday mapping out a couple of new designs, as well as getting some things done around my home. It seems that the last several weeks I have been working from deadline to deadline, and it felt good to have things pretty much done and under my belt. I needed a short time to catch up with everything I think. That's not to say that I don't have new deadlines to work on. It is great to have my focus a bit ahead and have some commitments that I want to fill to keep t...

'This Old Crack House' #4: The One handed Carpenter

02-21-2007 04:13 AM by Dusty | 25 comments »

Did I tell you I’m a one handed carpenter? Well, I have two hands but my left hand, although still attached, is pretty much worthless. In case I haven’t told you, I will briefly recap how this happened. The only reason I mention this is that it’s relevant to my story as a future carpenter and furniture builder.Several years ago when I was a heavy equipment operator, I had a bad accident. While working on a brand new back-hoe, digging-in a new electrical line, I noticed some leaking hyd...

Fatherhood: An Unexpected but Welcomed Comment

03-27-2007 05:29 AM by BassBully | 12 comments »

This weekend provided to be very busy. I aimed my goals towards finishing the router table top, and with rain in the forecast, it would be a good weekend to tackle this project. However, things needed to be completed first. I needed to tear down many boxes in the shop which were becoming obstacles to productivity, and then take them to the recycling center. With a baby on the way, my wife is in her nesting stage and needed shelves hung, but I was out of wall anchors. And ever important, I nee...

She had surgery. She had rods, pins, and screws placed from the knee down to the toes. We moved her to a rehab nursing home two days after surgery.

Thorsen Table #4: Down to the Wire

05-31-2007 05:15 AM by cheller | 3 comments »

I am going to cut it very close on this. If I didn’t have to work tomorrow I’d be fine, but I do have to work. I expect it’ll be 9 or 10pm before I get pictures posted – and it’s possible the finish will still be wet! This project has pushed me and has brought out the perfectionist in me. I cut the legs twice – because I wasn’t happy with the mortises on the first set. And given the opportunity I might recut a couple of the other parts as well....

Transformers' Allspark from the movie, Transformers

08-07-2007 04:52 PM by oscorner | 16 comments »

I’m posting this collaboration of my son and I. He saw the original prop on ebay going for over, $20,000 dollars so he decided to make his own. He didn’t have the 20 grand and Dad wasn’t paying for the one on ebay. This is what the prop looks like: His is made of 3/8” plywood. He drew and routed the design onto the plywood sides and inside bottom and colored it once it was finished. He took advantage of the knots in the plywood when designing the sides of...

Hi AllHere we go. This is my first attempt at writing a blog and I’m very new at Sketchup. I watched most of the tutorials and played for hours. Now I have to figure out how to get my pictures in here from Paint Bucket. I used the CN Tower in Toronto as my inspiration. I hope everyone is having as much fun as I am.BruceCanadian Wood Chuck

Save The Children #3: Logos; One Down...

10-13-2007 02:41 PM by MsDebbieP | 4 comments »

Following the “adventures” of trying to get the logo ready for the skateboard (see my last comment on first blog entry) I finally got one of the logos ready for the skateboard. I used the Omni-Gel (successfully) to create the logo decal, following the directions of the product. It would have been easier to just hit the print button but, alas, it was not meant to be. After I let it dry, I glued it to the skateboard, again using the Omni-Gel, and let that sit overnight. So far...

Well, I have not had much time to work in the shop this week. My chunky boxes are just waiting for final sanding and finish, but I can’t seem to get the free time at home right now. Maybe this upcoming long weekend, with it being Rememberance day on Monday. But I did manage to swing by the local PrincessAuto yesterday on my way home, and I walked out with a cheap $12 diamond-plate sharpening block (on sale). It has four 2×6 sides, each with a different grit (200, 300, 400, 600)....
