Planner marathon or Saw dust-a-palooza

03-24-2012 12:20 AM by T. D. Reid | 2 comments »

The last three days I have been doing nothing but running the planner and joiner creating eight 30 gallon bags of saw dust and I still have another days’ worth left. The big question is what to do with all of that saw dust? My father told me to ask the high school baseball coach if he wants it. I guess that they used to put it on the in-field to absorb the water after it rained. I will let you know what I find out because I know that we all have problems getting rid of saw dust. I have 95% of...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #724: This and That

06-06-2012 11:21 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I was rather busy yesterday. And I accomplished quite a bit. I know I say that nearly every day but somehow yesterday it seems like I accomplished more than I usually do. I can’t really tell if it is only that way in my mind or if it is in reality the case. Sometimes it is difficult to measure these things accurately. I soemtimes watch myself evolving in this business as if I am looking in from the side lines or watching a movie. Writing here each morning forces me to think abou...

On Woodworking... #1: So many ideas

06-21-2012 03:59 PM by Brohymn62 | 13 comments »

My daughter was born on May 29th, 2012… my shop finally became fully equipt (for the most part) about 2 months before that…. I reached the end of a long renovation project (bathroom and nursery) about 2 days before she was born… so for the past several weeks I’ve been loosing sleep and changing diapers but still very little shop time. I suppose as she grows I will be able to sneak away and build a thing or two but for now… I’m enjoying this time with my bab...

Bathroom Vanity #1: Plan and Started Building

07-07-2012 04:41 AM by Drifter | 2 comments »

Earlier this year we decided to remodel one of the bathrooms – meaning my lovely wife started demolishing the tile in the tub and it was my job to get it done. That seems to be the way our bigger projects start – she gets the ball rolling for me. Now that the tub is replaced with a 22” soaker and the tile has been sealed and the caulking is in place it is time to start on the rest of it. Because we haven’t decided if we are going to redo the floor I have started o...

Deck Table

08-04-2012 10:24 PM by RussellAP | 1 comment »

I was commissioned by a couple to build a deck table to match their benches. This took about 5 hours to make. I still need to sand the top and I’ll be done. What do you think. did I get a good match? This is the bench on the deck. The table I built. Here is the underside for you nerds out there. I used brads to hold the center brace to the table top, but that’s just to keep it level over time. The top doesn’t even need to be attached. It should stay...

The old time woodshop journals #25: Practices in Spoonology: Part two

09-03-2012 10:26 PM by jjw5858 | 5 comments »

I have entered an important stage creating these smaller more swedish styled spoons. That stage is simply practice and seeing if I can produce a sufficient rhythmic pattern by exercising more than one roughed result. It’s best to let a green wood piece dry for anywhere up to a few days to 2 weeks before doing any serious finishing work so I thought this to be a good time to keep the ideas flowing and hone on beginners skills. It’s surely an exercise of challenge and chance when axing down ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #857: Experience

10-26-2012 12:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

One of the hardest thing that I find to do is to look back at my older patterns. While part of me is very proud of the advancements I made in creating pattern packets, there is another part of me that looks back to when I was just starting out and wishing that I could do them all over again. There have been so many advancements that I have made in the past fifteen plus years. I have different software, learned new skills and have spoken with many customers directly and learned of better w...
