Square One

05-12-2014 02:36 PM by Jeff_in_LSMO | 18 comments »

I’m a frustrated engineer. I took what in my opinion was conservative advice when I graduated high school, and made the “smart” move into engineering. I have never liked it. It pays the bills. And, yes, I know many of you can/will quickly point out how difficult it is/can be to make a living building furniture and cabinetry, but I was talked out of heading down the “craft/trade” path almost 20 years ago and I have regretted it ever since. I am aware that m...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1344: More Sea Ornaments!

06-27-2014 12:41 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I spent the day yesterday refining the ornaments that I showed you in yesterday's blog. Those of you who have come to know me realize that I just can't do things one way. Keith often teases me because I think of so many variations of many of the different designs that I create, but when I think of several versions of doing things, it is hard for me to only make ONE – so I make them ALL! :)I know it takes longer to do and I don't really think it matters. Even after they are f...

The usual jointing and preparation of the NGR stock took place. These are the blanks I used edge glued to achieve the depth I wanted They are jointed on the reverse edges, meaning facing down out of view I made a total of six sections 4 x for the sides and 2 x for the ends Then it was into the thicknesser to reduce them all to the same thickness.Then on to the table saw to square one end. Once that was done it was then out with the steel rule to measure precisely the inside lip...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #22: Now for the serious stuff!

08-11-2014 02:41 AM by PhilBello | 2 comments »

I have been full of good intentions, but something always seems to crop up to stop the bigger projects getting under way, however I think I am clear to get started on rebuilding the kiosko / gazebo. It was my intention to get under way last week, but we had to have a couple of Mango trees removed, one at the front and another at the back of the house, for fruit trees they were big, taller than the house, and that was a worry, because I didn’t want any damage done to the house whilst fel...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1441: Originality - The Child of a Variety of Influences

11-11-2014 01:48 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

As a designer, one thing that can sometimes be difficult is creating something that is totally "original".  With all the information at our fingertips through sites like Google and Pinterest, the world is at our feet as far as seeing the creative work from others. Many years ago, when I just began my crafting and designing career,I began designing my own original teddy bears. Besides wood, I love working with fabric and sewing and creating the bears was really one of the r...
