My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #526: On the Road Again . . .

980 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Today’s post will be brief (for me!) because we are heading out soon. We discovered that there is this huge craft show in Wolfville at Acadia University this weekend and we thought we would scout it out. The link to the show is Here It looks like a really cool event. The booth prices are nearly $300 which is mighty steep, and it is $6 to get in the door, but we hope that means that it will be a lot of quality stuff will be there. This is not a flea market! So we are loading ...

setting up the new shop #11: cleaning up the remains and starting over

965 days ago by thedude50 | 5 comments »

Ok well i just had to do major keyboard surgery but it is working better now. Tomorrow we will start with the cleanup and the reconstruction. I am hoping we can get back to where we were before the storm this weekend and have it done by mid week next week. After that i need to make the door and do the trim work. which i can take my time on as i don’t need to rush any of it except the door. I feel a great deal of support from my LJ friends but they all live to far away or have previous ...

Building an Arts and Crafts Writing Desk

948 days ago by dskill | 0 comments »

Several years ago I ran across an old book of Arts and Crafts style plans and copied the pages of the book containing the drawing (yes, just one drawing!) with dimensions and three paragraphs of instruction on how to build the desk. This past summer I finally purchased the rough quartersawn white oak and dimensioned it for the pieces of the project. One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned (belatedly) from starting this project is that apparently even the casual hobbyist woodworker of ...

Military Display case...Semper Fi Pops...

935 days ago by Cleveland | 3 comments »

My Father was a former/inactive/out-of-shape Hollywood Marine before his passing almost three years ago…The Marines even came and watched over him during his funeral …He was also a Carpenter…Although the Corps didn’t want me I followed in his footsteps as a Carpenter…..I thought it would be a good way to honor him and the Bad Ass uniform that he wore for quite a spell by building a display case to house that Uniform, his Medals, the Sword the NCO’s carried ...

New Tools Are Cool #2: Bosch CS5 Circ Saw

910 days ago by JoeyG | 10 comments »

So my last package for the day just showed up. There should be a few more over the coming days but for now lets talk about my new circular saw. As I said in the last episode I need to retool my shop for making cabinets. Since I cannot fit a large table or panel saw in my shop I will have to cut my sheet goods with a circular saw. I am replacing a very old Black and Decker that looks like hell and cuts even worse. I believe I have more chance of cutting a perfect circle than a straight ...

Minwax Wipe On Poly: Take It To The Limit #2: Prep Process

875 days ago by Lee Barker | 2 comments »

A little more explainer first. Recently on LJ a rookie posted a question about what finish you use. You can imagine the responses: “I use this and always have” “My buddy has always used this:” etc. That’s the predictable part. What surprised me is the OP responded by saying, “Ok, thanks, I’ll go out and buy all of these and try them.” And get back to us 6 months later? It struck me that I could offer more by recounting my process in...

Corner Shelf

852 days ago by SuburbanDon | 3 comments »

I finished this corner shelf for my sister. She will paint it. Nothing special but the heart detail was something new for me. The curved front is something I have not done much.

Kill the Treble #13: The Cats Eye

840 days ago by thebenchroom | 1 comment »

Yesterday I had left a combination of wood glued onto the top horn of my bass, and wrote about the uncertainty I had attempting this technique. No practice run, with real bullets on my first try. The sequence of Maple veneer, Mascassar Ebony, Maple Veneer was shaped this morning and too my surprise it came out better than expected. I’ve attached the second eye that will cover the input jack, and with any luck it will come out like the first. Over the next few days I’ll be reassembling the...

dust stuff #7: New Boxes

825 days ago by JoeyG | 2 comments »

If you read the blog earlier I wasn’t sure what I wanted to build next. I decided to work on two boxes.One will be from Bubinga and one from Wamara (Guyana Rosewood). It’s the first time I have worked with both woods. The Bubinga is a pleasure so far, while the Wamara is extremely dense and hard. I think it will be worth replacing all my blades because of how pretty it is going to be. I am not so much doing something new as trying to do everything better. That should be a ...
