My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1566: Lots of FUN Ways to be Creative!

06-03-2015 12:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It doesn't take much to regroup and rejuvenate! I got everything out to the post office (in the pouring rain, I may add! It made things more exciting!) and back home by 1pm. Our little place here actually looked a bit EMPTY without all the paraphernalia from the carousels here. It seems that there have been parts and things here for WEEKS! My own carousel is safely put away until later on in the year. I think I have seen enough of it for now anyway to last a little bit. Since it was ...

Tool Picking #17: This Craftsman Followed Me Home

06-07-2015 01:14 AM by TrBlu | 7 comments »

We took advantage of a beautiful day to take a family outing and hit up a couple estate sales in our area. I found this vintage Craftsman 10-drawer tool chest in an out building. Emptied the tools and household repair parts out. Found the key in the top section. And loaded this beaut into the trunk of my car. Even empty this thing is heavy. Decided to start cleaning. The original owner used Naugahyde for drawer liners and most were still in the drawers. The worst part about the ...

Something with an "R" #4: Box Assembly

06-14-2015 02:38 PM by sras | 5 comments »

The last picture from the previous post is a good place to start for this segment. After the inlays were done, each piece is rabbeted on all 4 sides. The bloodwood edging also has a rabbet. Since the joint is visible from both sides and I had a little bit of variation in the rabbets, I labeled each side for a wide or narrow joint. Each piece of edging was carefully fitted for a tight joint. Then the edging was glued on.This is a good time to point out that the joinery plan calls for ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1574: Faux Rust Video Posted

06-18-2015 11:07 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I always find it funny that it takes hours to create a video that is only minutes long. While the process isn't difficult, like many things there is a learning curve and it can take a bit longer than expected to achieve the desired results. As with anything, I need to go through the process several times so that I am familiar. My problem is that it is months between videos and sometimes I forget how I did certain things or some of the processing steps. Once it is completed, I am usua...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1576: Welcome Summer!

06-22-2015 11:52 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

What an amazing weekend!Not that anything paticularly unusual happened. For the most part, it was a 'typical' weekend. But I felt as if I accomplished a great deal and also had a chance to visit with some dear friends and enjoy some 'down time.' For me – I guess it IS unusual. On Friday afternoon I received a call from my Canadian mom, Ellen. I call her that because both her and her husband Bernie have treated me like a daughter for the past eleven years that I have...

Charging my Trend Air Shield

07-09-2015 03:35 AM by cajunpen | 7 comments »

i have a Trend Air Shield, not the Pro model, that I have lost my charger. A new charger is about $60.00, which is crazy for what it is. The battery is 3.6 volts and can be removed from the shield. Does anyone have a suggestion? I have seen a replacement charger for the Pro model on YouTube, but the “plug ins” are totally different. Any help/suggestions will be appreciated.

Greene and Greene tool chest. #7: Top part 2: Ebony spline jig/top inlay

07-14-2015 02:23 AM by lateralus819 | 1 comment »

I was contemplating even attempting this. I knew I didn’t want to do Ng’ jig as I don’t have guide bushings and I figured I’d messup the mortise for it anyways. Here is my version and it works incredibly well. I hope it can help some people and ease some tension on this critical step. The first step is to secure some quality ply, the router and bit of choice and some patience. The jig is constructed similarly to an “Exact width dado jig”. Make two ...

Video Woodworkers I Watch #17: Stan Sullivan

07-19-2015 07:48 PM by Dave Rutan | 7 comments »

I forgot how I found him, but Stan Sullivan is another one of those video woodworkers that I watch. His narrative is clear and the sound quality in his videos is very good. Admittedly his woodworking is straight forward, but he uses some interesting techniques to get things done. The statement from his YouTube channel reads: ‘Fancy workshop with expensive tools. Not here. Just a garage, basic tools and a belief that Doing it yourself brings confidence and a sense of satisfaction...
