My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1112: Making Progress

08-25-2013 10:39 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

As I went to fall into bed last night, I walked into my room and immediately noticed how crisp and cool the air was. It would definitely be a night for blankets (and perhaps a cat or two) to keep me warm. This was the first night of the season that felt this way. After a lovely, warm and sunny day, the night temperatures were cool and crisp and on the brink of chilly. Fall is approaching, and it is my favorite time of year. Overall yesterday I had a pretty good day. I got some chores ...

Mild curve in 1 1/8” kiln dried white oak. You can see here how I dropped a pin in the table and some plastic installer’s shims to push the end tight to the form.

Office #9: Dimensional Furniture 6b

01-08-2014 02:42 AM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

I was able to almost entirely complete the printer stand today. I say almost as I have to cut two shelves for it that will be adjustable. I am saving that for later in the week as I have a large sheet of plywood I will have to cut for a table top and I will cut the shelves at the same time. This unit is made from 2×4s, and 1/2” plywood. The adjustable shelves I wan to be a little sturdier since they will be holding paper and such so they will be 3/4” plywood. All of th...

Trying new woodworking skills #16: A tighter miter

02-10-2014 03:11 AM by BJODay | 13 comments »

It has been 2 months since I worked on the project and posted any progress. In the last entry I was happy with the first mitered top. But over the holidays I would look at it and think, I can make it better, (a tighter miter). The first top was cut at 45.2 degrees. There was a slight gap in the joint. I ran a few test pieces through. I adjusted the miter sled by 0.05 degrees. I’m not kidding. The best tests were at 45.15 degrees. If I was working in pine, the first cuts could have be...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1364: To The Scroll Saw!

07-21-2014 12:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I was able to finish up my drawing yesterday. Whether or not I was able to squeak the project in under the deadline for submissions remains to be seen. I honestly was not sure of the cutoff date, but in some ways (to me, anyway) it didn't really matter. Either way I wanted to create these designs. Either way I win. As time goes by and and I do what I do longer and longer, I have discovered that there are a world of options open for me. I used to get rather tense about deadlines and t...
