what i've been doing #7: im a idiot when it comes to design

01-10-2011 02:20 AM by Dave | 2 comments »

My lid for my bench has a large knot hole with a check in it. So I had put some filler in it and have been waiting for over a week for it to dry.Its still damp.So I went to work on the joinery on the rails. I had a fellow lj make a suggestion that the layout of the tails did not give the appearance of hand cut. So I cut them off and chose a tighter layout.The new layout was almost to tight for my 1/8 chisel to get through. I still haven’t got used to the way my new saw tracks.Now I have...

Spice Rack

02-28-2011 07:41 PM by Jerrymaxx | 2 comments »

This is a project that my wife had been bugging me to make for months. It was made specifically for an otherwise unusable space. Easy to make and made from nothing but wood scraps. The bottom bin is for onions and the top bin is for potatoes. Needless to say she was pleased with the outcome and as you can see every square inch of shelf space is occupied.

Preparing for an exhibition #1: - My finishing marathon

03-24-2011 10:17 PM by Div | 27 comments »

I feel like a piece of steel wool. My arms are tired, my fingers are numb. My shop is strewn with rags, bottles and tins of various potions, pieces of sandpaper, wads of steel wool, coffee mugs and the odd scraper. Pieces of furniture stand everywhere. I have been sanding and rubbing and oiling and rubbing and oiling and polishing and waxing and polishing all week. The light at the end of the tunnel is faintly becoming visible… Anyone in his right mind will build a piece of furniture...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #305: Back in Saratoga Springs

04-06-2011 03:33 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Hi, everybody! We drove most of Monday and half a day today and are back in the Albany/Saratoga Springs area. We arrived here around 1pm and had a nice lunch at Olive Garden restaurant. I haven’t eaten there in ages and love their soup. We then took the afternoon to go through the large shopping mall nearby and just bummed around a bit. It was the first time we really had some slow time since we left two weeks ago and we just enjoyed it. It rained pretty hard all day yesterday...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #378: Odds and Ends

06-22-2011 12:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Boy, I got a lot of little stuff out of the way yesterday. You know those days – where there are a ton of small things to do and it seems like they just get in the way of moving ahead. I like days like that because when all is said and done, it feels like you accomplished quite a bit. I even thought through the next project that I am going to be working on today. I got a newsletter out. It was the second one that I sent in June, but it seemed that there was enough new stuff and p...

Shop Update #1: Garage Upgrade

08-06-2011 03:47 AM by Dave | 5 comments »

I do my woodworking in the garage and when I started it only had a single 15 amp 110 volt circuit, two light bulbs, and garage doors that were low enough that I bumped into them constantly whenever I moved boards around. Most of us have been there at one point and it worked well enough for me but last summer I was sidelined from the shop while my collar bone was healing (doctor’s orders – no woodworking) so I figured I might as well use the ole’ woodworking budget to have...
