My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #405: Time After Time

07-19-2011 01:08 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

I spent the bulk of the day yesterday printing out patterns and sanding 8.5” x 11” rounded rectangles of wood. It doesn’t sound like enough to fill the day, but it certainly was. Once again I played the role of ‘captain underestimation,’ grossly underestimating the amount of time it will take me to do things. (I never have been that good at math. There is something so impersonal about numbers that they just don’t hold my interest. They are an evil ne...

Making a Wooden Pendant #1: My wood pendant process

08-15-2011 09:30 PM by S2artDesigns | 4 comments »

I figured I would put this out there in case anyone was interested to know what I do to make these wooden pendants. Its not complicated. Anyone can do it with their scraps. I personally like to use burl wood but if you have less figured wood you can pair it up with contrasting colors and shapes for a nice effect. ANYWAY, Picture time.I skipped the wood selection process in the photos. I was making this one for a friend and she picked the piece, marked the spot she wanted and then I took over...

Board Game Travel Case #2: The exterior walls

08-30-2011 09:18 AM by ChadR | 1 comment »

I got a 8’ 1” x 10” board and cut 2-14” sections and 2-26 1/2” sections. I ripped one of the 26 1/2” boards 3” in to create the top lid. After nailing the pieces together I was about to work on getting proper dimensions for the interior drawers. I decided before finished the day off I would make a test drawer. I created the front, back and both walls. I then decided I would make them box joint together and it worked out very well, since it was my firs...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #507: Computer Gremlins - Just In Time for Halloween!

10-30-2011 12:10 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

OK We are going to try this again. Yesterday was a bit of frustration and I am still do not quite understand what happened. I have written blogs in different sessions before – even closed things out completely on my computer and came back and what I had written was still there. I am reading just above the boxes here that ‘drafts are saved every 30 seconds’ and I believe that. But yesterday, for some reason that wasn’t the case. Maybe in the spirit of Halloween th...

My first workbench (well...official one anyway)

11-15-2011 06:40 AM by ocwoodworker | 2 comments »

Made of Beach. The tail vise is the Veritas end vise that has a quick release. The face vise is actually a cool piece of work from Hovarter vises ( . It is a quick release 26” behemoth. Clamps down like a mean pit bull. Hopefully will get around to building some shelves and drawers, but right now I really want to take ‘er for a run around the block with a good G&G table build.

dining table and tons more.

02-04-2012 10:18 PM by davemoorefurniture | 8 comments »

Hello everyone. I have been busy making stuff and have finally finished a video that has been almost a year in the making. I made this video to be like a commercial for me and my work so it doesn’t give any tutorial. I do have a series of videos to be published soon that are more along that line. My goal as a video maker is to provide the viewer with an alternative to the typical format of woodworking videos; where a guy stands across the bench and talks at the camera, showing lit...

It’s getting much easier at this point. I got a masonry chisel to cut the blocks for the end and it looks much nicer plus I have a new tool.
