Well I cut the mortises today, I used a Drill and a coping saw to cut the mortises out, I like to the work by hand, it doesn’t come out perfect but the imperfections are hardley noticiable to others although I can spot the glaringly obvious tool marks or rough cuts, and to some they feel it adds character to the piece, I can liive with that but I know I will always have a need to improve. Any who, over the next few days I will be finishing this up. I had to go buy Brass Screws to pu...

Drying Wisteria

07-19-2012 06:24 PM by Ken Caputa | 9 comments »

Hello !I’ll be cutting down my 25 year old Wisteria real soon and I’m not really sure what the best way to dry it before using it. In the garage, outside under my covered shed or in the basement in the heating room? There is a lot of wood for several walking sticks and the main trunk is approximately 4ft long and 5” to 6a” thick. Should I take the bark off before drying or after ? I hope someone ca help me. Thank you, Ken

Laughing at myself

Hello Fellow Scroller and Scrolleretts, I got a new / used scroll saw today, 2 days a week I volunteer at the local Senior Center here in town and teach those seniors that are interested how to use the computer, everything from basic internet use to setting up an email account or buying and selling on ebay and just about what ever else they might be interested in, well in today’s class one of the senior ladies (in her late 70s) told me she had a Scroll Saw that had belonged to her husba...

Kitty Condo - CAD/CAM primer #2: modeling the new design

08-17-2012 05:08 PM by Mainiac Matt | 0 comments »

Being a low budget project…. I first had to take inventory of what I had kicking around… > several half sheets of 1/2” particle board> a dozen 3/4” dowels (stained)> left over paint from the destination room I decided to use the same footprint and base height as the free plans…. but then sized the platform to match the cats’ bed and set the pole height to match the level of the window by the bird feeders. It seems that cat’s like to “t...

Life Struggles

09-19-2012 04:11 PM by Handi75 | 2 comments »

Hello Everyone. Just wanted to let everyone know that I’m sorry for not being around. There has been a lot going on for awhile now. Some of it has been the projects. Not enough money to purchase Lumber to be able to Toy around with some new projects. Some of it has been in the hospital for a week getting my Gallbladder removed. Some of it has been my Old Lady being in the Hospital first with phnumonia and now back in with Cellulitus in her legs. And also the last thing was we we...

The old time woodshop journals #32: All the things of wood and wonder

10-23-2012 09:50 PM by jjw5858 | 4 comments »

The greatest expression of any art is the freedom of too many rules, regulations, or minds closed to new ideas. I continue on this journey of woodenware or treenware with extended spirited expectations. My additional study on the matter finds me in a revival of enthusiasm and fascination in the complexity of what reveals simple pleasures with trusted methods and tools. There is something so honest of this work in a modern world that can be so packed with bull pippy and boring commercial...

What finish to put on a Birch mortar and pestle

11-26-2012 01:40 PM by Ben Haberer | 5 comments »

Hey All, I just turned my first mortar and pestle (well really my first bowl of any kind) and I really love how it turned out. I was planning on giving it as a chistmas gift to my mother but before I’m done I need to figure out what kind of finish I need to put on it. She cooks a lot so she will actually be using the mortal and pestle a good bit I imagine, in fact she had told me she was really in need of one which was was I gave it a try when I was at the lathe. So since it will ...

A Guitar for Daniel #8: Done. For now.

12-31-2012 05:22 AM by Dan Lyke | 1 comment »

Daniel came back for another visit and said “yeah, it sounds really off at the 12th fret”. With visions of “oh, crap, we have to mill off that fret and move it” we started playing with things, and discovered that the bridge was in the wrong place. The bridge had individually adjustable string positions, so we moved them, and got a sound that was okay, but the bridge was also really too high. So I chucked it up in the milling machine, milled it down a bit, then t...
