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.

hanging the doors, and some revelations

06-15-2009 10:27 AM by Gary Fixler | 4 comments »

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...

building a shop

07-02-2009 01:03 AM by randyb | 16 comments »

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.

The Non-Electric Chair #15: Making the Chair (Fitting the Seat and Arms)

07-20-2009 01:07 PM by lethentymill | 10 comments »

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...

Progress is made on my router table

12-02-2009 12:47 AM by ryno101 | 7 comments »

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...

Redwood Slabs

12-18-2009 02:37 AM by dougdeg | 5 comments »

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...
