My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1180: "Elf" Mode

12-02-2013 01:11 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

It’s the month of December already and that only means one thing – Elf Mode. While it appears I am in Elf Mode every day, during the holidays it goes to a new level. Not only do I enjoy making most of the gifts that I give, but I also like to participate in many exchanges that are held from several of the forums that I frequent. Yes – I LOVE to receive small pieces of others’ work! Recently, in my never ending quest to be organized I purchased a nice brush box ...

Is it true that Purple Heart will change color over time. I’ve even heard it will change shades of purple if put in sunlight.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1254: Attitudes

02-25-2014 12:52 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

As I awoke today, a faint light already began illuminating the early morning sky. At first I was somewhat aggravated at myself, for I have a great deal to accomplish today and I had planned to get an early start. It has been several months since I had daylight when I first arose, but as I looked at the clock and saw that it wasn’t as late as I expected, I relaxed. The seasons are changing and spring is definitely on its way. Now it is nearly 8 am and daylight is fully upon us. It is...

Secret Dovetails: a bottom for the box

04-20-2014 05:33 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Almost got this box about sized up. Some tweaking at the corners, maybe. Time to add a bottom? Needs a groove made in the sides of the box, so A Plough plane to cut some 1/4” by 1/4” grooves. Plane just MIGHT be a tad older than me? I had a piece of pine scrap, almost the right sizes for the box. needed a rebate around the edges, though So, a Wards #78 set to take a bit of the top, er, bottom of the panel. Seems I had the panel a might too smooth and shiny. ...

A new Toy: Thickness planer

06-04-2014 02:03 PM by Dave Rutan | 10 comments »

One thing that I have long felt lacking among my group of tools was a thickness planer. Since I tend to look for discarded wood (I.E. free) to use for projects very often the wood is a bit rough. Mostly it will have a previous owner’s finish on it which I am forced to remove. I’d also like to utilize pallet wood, since it’s free in my area, but my list of ‘rustic’ projects is a bit short. So some time ago, I started saving my pocket change towards buying a...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1379: Thank You All American Crafts

08-11-2014 11:49 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 30 comments »

Writing today's blog post is something that I have not been looking forward to doing. I like my posts here to be positive and up beat, and it is difficult for me to feel that way after receiving the news that I heard over the weekend. However, since word got out, I have been receiving many notes and emails and I feel that the best way to answer them all is to post about things here, so I will do my best to do so and share the information that I have on the matter and also some thoughts on...

Dining Table Build #2: End leg assembly.....Splats

09-01-2014 11:50 PM by Mark | 2 comments »

I used 7/8” x ¾ thick walnut and 1” x ¾ thick Cherry for the splats. A bit of glue up. A pass or 2 with the belt sander and it’s all good. The blade on the chop saw isn’t so great and back of my sled wasn’t long enough so I had to clamp a piece of scrap to it to get the length.Cutting to size. Cutting the tenons. I forgot to take a pic of all the splats together…But it did happen
