Hey, Everyone, Thanks for stopping by. I am a new scroll saw “artist”, and think I have finally found my passion. I just LOVE creating beautiful scrolled pieces. I am a 48 year old woman, married for 25 years, mother of 3 daughters…20, 21 and 23 years old. I live on the “Treasure Coast” of sunny Florida. I am originally form Cincinnati, Ohio, but have lived in Florida since I was 15 years old. I am a homemaker and crafter. I run 2 blogs: Creative...
Here’s my most boring time-lapse yet – sanding up the cabinet doors to flush the rails and stiles, and prepare it for finishing. Speaking of… something I’d heard whispered around here a few times came to mind the other day while trying to get extremely gummy stickers off the maple I used in this project: mineral spirits. It says right on the can “for cleaning surfaces in preparation for painting.” I wiped some on, and just like goop-off, the sticker goo wip...
I can’t believe how important my shop is to me. I call it a workshop not a wood shop, I am always out there doing something, fixing, building, and thinking. its been called an unorganized mess, whatever! maybe so but its my mess, as long as there is a place for my coffee and my old rocking chair I’m happy. every morning when I take the dog out to do her thing, I open the door and just smile, its my place.
I closed the shed in October last year and took the toolbox inside as I had no intention of working through the winter on this project – even though it was near completion. The cold damp air is not good for the wooden tools and they deserve better at this stage in their lives even if they have withstood worse in the past….. So Christmas passed, then January, February, March; finally in mid-April, I re -installed the toolbox and started work again. The frame of the chair was already glu...
i finally finished the assembly and glue up of the base for my cabinet makers bench. I still have a few dowel pins to put in the legs, but the main glue up and assembly is done. Now I get to start on the top. Here are some pics of the bench so far.
First two flitches have been run through the Delta thickness planer:
I haven’t posted anything about this yet, I expect to have a finished project to post shortly… I’m very excited about the progress I’ve made on this. This is my first cabinet, my first doors, my first drawers, etc. Cabinet is 3/4” MDF, and has been done for months now. I finished the doors recently, but as woodworking for me is all about budgeting, haven’t pulled the trigger on the Forstner bit I needed to mount the hinges. Hit Rockler the other da...
We order a few redwood slabs off of ebay, We were supprised when they came they were quite large, one was 44” wide and 84” long and the other was 27” wide and 72” long. They were cut in a way that most edges were a natural live edge, Which gave them a nice free form look, Redwood was a lot softer than i had thought it wood be but nice to work with.We decide to create a redwood coffee table out of the first piece. I have a friend that has a 36” planer wit...
From NBeener who—while he does NOT have a leather shop apron—DOES have a penguin suit ;-) See y’all next year. Make it a safe night, and a wonderful New Year!
