Entryway Arts & Crafts Mirror & Storage Bench #2: Starting with the Mirror

11-12-2012 04:44 AM by Steve Erwin | 3 comments »

I decided it was too confusing trying to build the bench and the mirror at the same time, so I’m making the mirror first, because it’s simpler. I’ll have less to think about if I get it out of the way. So Step 0: Stop. Go re-sharpen all your tools. This took about a day or so. Longer than normal because I was trying to grind a camber on most of the irons and I’m not very swift at it yet. Step 1: Cut all parts to rough width and rough length. Step 2: Cut al...

Shop Shifting #2: Sometimes small changes make a big difference.

01-01-2013 08:47 PM by sras | 7 comments »

This entry is about tweaking the floor plan. My shop is a nice size, but I kept feeling that the open spaces were out of whack. The issue centered on the table saw. It is a major element in a shop of my size. I ended up compromised for cutting wide stock – the bandsaw was in the way. Also, I lacked space to store my tall fence. My ShopSmith was in the corner with barely any room to work with it. The saw was as close to the sink as I could get it. but I was always feelin...

Hail Mary

01-14-2013 07:49 PM by Dan | 11 comments »

This blog is to show my progress on what I call my “crowning achievement”. I cannot post it as a project yet as it is not yet complete. When completed this will go on a posterboard backing, and go into a custom made frame approx 3’ x 4’. A little back story: This project is being made as a gift. When I was 9 my mother was diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma (for those that dont know, that is a horrid cancer). I went to a catholic school at the time, and the pri...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #980: New Week, New Ideas

03-11-2013 12:04 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I had told myself that I was going to spend the day yesterday doing pretty much what I felt like doing. There usually aren’t many days like that, but since it was one of those rare occasions when I felt like I was getting caught up with things, I wanted to take advantage of the day. Besides being on top of work, the sun was shining and it was simply beautiful outside. While there were still some remnants of snow piles here and there, you were able to sit out side with only a light ...

String inlaid box #4: Old yeller... no wait, Old Brown

04-10-2013 04:39 PM by JeremyPringle | 5 comments »

Right from the on set of this project, I had the intention of using hide glue as my adhesive. (Old Brown Glue is quickly becoming my favorite glue) In my last post, simply because I was short time, I glued in two pieces of stringing with Titebond 3, took my pictures and set everything aside. Since I had a little bit of free time today, I was able to do a few things with this box. So I grabbed my Old Brown from the fridge, put a pot of water on the stove…. But because I knew I w...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1019: Finishing Up Some Instructions

04-24-2013 10:39 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I had a quiet day yesterday. By that, I probably mean that I didn’t get a great deal accomplished. We all have days like that I suppose, and it was just my turn. I was able to work on the instructions for the last project that is going to the magazine. In the morning I did bake some blueberry/lemon bread, as I have been meaning to do that but I always seemed to get distracted. It came out pretty good and I really enjoyed it. I haven’t really done much baking lately and I ju...

Trestle dining table #7: all done! (Well, the top is probably only temporary)

05-28-2013 11:32 PM by moshel | 5 comments »

the top had to be done from two pieces that can be easily disassembled as it had to pass through narrow staircase and also probably be moved around quite a bit. the thought of waving around 60kg beech top was not really appealing, so i decided at least for now to use DF and have it in two pieces.for finish i used an effect i found out while trying to bleach the base. I mixed tung oil with oxide powder, about 1:1 and rubbed it into the 80 grit sanded DF. the oxide settled into the scratches an...
