Rogue Fine Living #3: Bed of Power

12-22-2011 10:56 AM by Rogue | 0 comments »

In this world of 4gs, Ipads, and Jpegs, we have more power than ever before. Never has it been so easy for an artist to share their work regardless of distance. I can contact a customer hundereds or even thousands of mile away. We can design an original piece via email, and I can have it delivered to their door without the client having to leave the comfort of their home. Wow! Sure beats the heck out to the old days. In Renaissance times, if the King of France wanted you to carve a sculpture...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #422: Working

08-05-2011 12:31 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Sometimes when I am working the hardest, it seems that I have the least to write about. I spent the day yesterday pretty much chained to the computer drawing and that in itself doesn’t really make for an interesting blog. It was one of those days where I was able to stay truly focused (yes – even I have them sometimes) and besides taking a couple of breaks to respond to mail and such, I really did nothing but sat and drew all day. I did finish one entire pattern though, an...

Pensai Table #2: Version -0.75

08-17-2011 06:23 AM by chscholz | 9 comments »

Here’s another practice version of a “Real Asian Style” table. I tried to use traditional Chinese joinery (or at least what I think would be traditional Chinese joinery). Design is as simple as I could possible think of, not waisted as it really should be, no moldings. Material are a few 2×4’s that probably don’t quite have the right proportions. At this stage for me it is really about learning the joinery so I did not bother preparing the stock. I got...

Woodturning in Romania #3: adjustments & first bowl

09-01-2011 09:55 PM by Ovidiu | 1 comment »

Unfortunately I did’t remove the problem of lathe at 100%. Still warm, but I can work continuously about 1 / 2 hour. I managed to align pulleys and found a serious distributor for driving belts. These are high quality and resistant to heat. I bought 5 pieces because they are cheap, about $ 4 each.So, full of joy, I chose a piece of green walnut and I made a bowl. Before I start it turning, the wood has been outside about three months. I made a rough turn and I dried the bowl in the mic...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #464: Wearing Many Hats

09-17-2011 01:38 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

In looking back at the past week, it seemed that many situations arose that called for me to play many different roles within my company. I was required to be a technical consultant, accountant, customer service representative, writer, advertising agent, administrator, teacher and photographer. Oh, and I almost forgot – a designer. It certainly was a full week! So many times people say to me that they don’t want to do woodworking as a living because it would take the fun out...

Woodworking as Therapy #6: Moving along on my serving tray - but have question

11-17-2011 04:55 AM by Betsy | 2 comments »

I’ve managed a couple hours in the shop this week. Yeah! I’m starting to work more on my serving tray for my boss. I’ve got my sides together and you can see I did not get the bottom exactly right – but I can fix that with a nice strip of matching wood. The inside angle is correct according to the text and my measurements. Tonight I used my band saw for the first time in a very long time – made me very nervous so I cut way outside the line and ...
