Bloggin' about loggin'

Here are a few pics of the maple and alder collecting I did last fall and late summer out at the tree farm. A few whacks with the maul on a couple of wedges turns this into these ;-)) This double grab hook comes in real handy Easy to open when it gets bound up too tight :-)) Handy for lifting logs too The Tree Farm is on the far end of the low hill in the foreground. It is just about dead center in the picture where the darkest green gets a bit lighter for the next hill...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #220: Moving Right Along

01-09-2011 01:52 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

It turned out to be a very good day yesterday. I was able to stay focused and not only finish up my work for the customer that had draw the plaques for him, but I also drew up another tray (start to finish) that I will be able to cut today. I like days like that. I felt as if I accomplished a lot and got to check a couple of things off of the list. For some reason, it seems that when there are lots of little loose ends hanging they tend to overwhelm me. It isn’t as if they take a...

Roubo-Moxon Bench Build #10: Little By Little...

01-18-2011 10:07 AM by Eric | 4 comments »

...the cow takes the cake. Not sure what that means, but it’s a saying in our household. It’s a strange household. I am making progress on the bench, but as before, I get hung up mentally when I come to big steps in the process. But first, a glimpse into how I do my glueups. After applying glue to both faces to be glued up, I place the new piece on the very top of the stack and clamp it with my 48”-ers, long side down. What appears to be a misalignment of that top board i...

Hi you guys how are you all? I’m posting some photos of the progress of the industrial bed canopy that I told you all I intended to build. This weekend project has turned out to be more complicated that I anticipated. These materials I am working with, e.g. MDF, Particle Board, et. al. are strange and always a challenge particularly in something this complicated. One really has to stay on the ball and focus to machine these materials because they are very differe...

Workbench #7: Laying out the legs

02-28-2011 06:21 AM by HungryTermite | 1 comment »

Yesterday I took the leg blanks back to the jointer and the planer and got them down to a hair over 5” x 5”. One of them ended up a hair under. I found out during this process that the depth stop on the Makita planer does not handle anything 5 inches thick so it was a little tricky to try to get all 4 pieces exact. All that will be left to do on these is to hit them with a smooth plane to take off the plane tracks, which are barely even visible. It will also fix the “...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #294: Settling In - Let the Fun Begin

03-24-2011 01:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

This is so unusual being in a different place and having my routine changed. I suppose that I am quite the proverbial “creature of habit”. More so than I would have thought. I am going to the Center today and I promise to have some pictures of that added in later. Now I get to start meeting people and learning. I am very excited. We made it to Jeannie’s by afternoon, as planned. The rest of the trip was uneventful, which was good because much of the Northeast was ...
