I made the front page.

03-26-2013 02:17 AM by easiersaidthandone | 2 comments »

I was checking LJs once more tonight and I noticed that I made the front page where they feature pictures of 5 of your projects. Pretty neat. I always wondered how they decided who to put in that spot.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1007: Project Progress

04-11-2013 11:30 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

The next several days, I am going to be posting a variety of pictures from the various new designs in their various stages of development. It may seem a bit mish-mosh, but I have so many things on the go here that I need to do it that way in order to keep up with everything. When all the projects are finished, I will do a recap of all the new designs in one post so everything will be all together. This is really a fun time for me! I spent the day yesterday working on several of the pi...

More progress on Lizard Cane

04-25-2013 04:33 PM by mpounders | 12 comments »

I completed as much carving on the handle as I could and then epoxied it to the shaft. The shaft is also basswood and i used a 5/16th threaded rod about 6 inches long epoxied in place. I decided how I wanted the tail wrapped around, outlined it with a v gouge and then rounded it over and relieved the background. I carved down the back of the lizard where the tail joins the shaft to get a smooth transition. The customer doesn’t want this guy painted, but the scale patterns I will bur...

JC4's Mini Blog #1: What happened to JC?

05-13-2013 05:05 PM by JCMeyersIV | 0 comments »

I know, i know. Less than a week into my daily blogs, they halted. Short answer: Wow am I busy! Long answer: I have been flooded with orders suddenly, which is great, but also started my “side job” working for my buddy’s landscaping outfit once or twice a week. At $10 an hour, working 11 to 12 hours, i make some serious payola. The orders are for a patio seat/cabinet, 4 more adirondack chairs (on top of the ones im making for stock), and a tv stand. TV stand is done, as w...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1047: Ready for the Scrollsaw

05-30-2013 11:28 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I had a decent day yesterday. For the first time in a week, it was a beautiful and sunny day outside. It was still quite cool for this time of year, but seeing the sun after so many overcast days in a row was a welcome sight. I truly enjoyed doing my errands in the morning, and it was hard for me to come back inside to work, but I knew I had to get drawing done for my final submission for the holiday issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine. This final designs would be simpler thou...

Apartment Projects #18: Fixing a Hole...

07-27-2013 01:27 AM by littlecope | 22 comments »

It’s been well over a year since Debbie and I moved into our “New” Apartment.There has been something unsightly in our kitchen bugging me all that time…Covered over by taped plastic, there is a big hole in the ceiling… It’s an access hole, to the plumbing for our bathroom, in the room right above it… Today I tore down the plastic, to see what it looks like… It is about what I figured… In these old houses, they put in dropped ceilings ma...

Working with recycled timber #10: Attaching the base, base trim and a reinforcing ring

08-13-2013 02:20 AM by robscastle | 2 comments »

The drum project is progressing well. The base was cut from a piece of 15mm ply and attached with a “few” screws and glue. I sat the drum on the ply traced a line around the outside and cut the profile out on the bandsaw then ran a straight bearing mounted router bit around the edge to cut it back parallel and smooth I had some concerns about the segments at the top breaking off if somebody stood on the drum so I made a reinforcing ring to support them all. I h...

Tool Cabinet Build #2: Design Solidified Finally...

09-14-2013 06:55 AM by Airframer | 10 comments »

This morning before work I finally got a plan together for this cabinet. It hits all the design criteria I had laid out and more so I think it’s a go on the build now. Here is my highly technical “sketch up” of the cabinet :D This is a head on view. The bottom cabinet with drawers on it will reside between the legs and can be un attached and rolled elsewhere in the shop if needed. This will hold mostly consumables (sandpaper, glue up supplies etc) and my sharpen...

Jet JJ-6CSX #6: Long Time Coming but it's cutting nice and square!

10-02-2013 01:37 AM by twoblacklabs | 10 comments »

Took a long time to get to this point and I neglected to update the blog. However, within the last 2 weeks, I was able to make some great progress. Over the last month and a half, I set up an electrolysis vat using our large recycling cart, car battery charger, bunch of rebar pieces, copper wire, water and washing soda. It’s not completely done but i...

Rock-n H Woodshop podcast #29: My first Halloween special

10-28-2013 07:54 PM by Drew - Rock-n H Woodshop | 4 comments »

This is nothing like WWMM specials but it is the best I could do on very short notice. Thanks to a residual bug from my daughter’s illness I, too, got sick which kept me out of the shop. Hope you all enjoy, be sure and subscribe if you haven’t and give me comments and feedback on my first special.
