My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #379: Working and More Class Planning

06-23-2011 01:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I thought that I would have gotten a bit farther yesterday than I actually did, but I can’t say it was a bad day at all. I suppose that sometimes things just take more time then we anticipate. I used to do that more then I do now, but I have been pretty realistic about mapping out and achieving my goals lately. I think writing things down here in the mornings helps me a lot with sticking to a plan. Even if I want to change things up in the middle of the day, at least I have a framew...

A long running project nears completion #5: The Neck

07-07-2011 11:20 PM by Tony | 0 comments »

At some point along the way, I decided the stock neck was not sufficient. I’m pretty sure it was made of Alder, and surprisingly soft for the neck of a steel-string guitar. I was going to install a different style tuner, and messed up the stock headstock trying to cut string slots, so off it came. Turning again to eBay, I found a nice stock of Black Walnut cut in sheets about 3’ long, so after planing them smooth, I laminated a neck blank from the BW and some Maple I had from anot...

AWFS - Las Vegas 2011 #2: Another learning day

07-23-2011 05:08 AM by BillyJ | 3 comments »

No wonderful tool pictures today, but had a great time talking with the experts. We stopped at almost every finish and finishing tool company today. Asked a LOT of questions, and were able to walk away with more knowledge then we had 15-min prior. I was abe to actually see some cool tools and materials that will make a world of difference in the shop. There are still enough booths left for us to visit that it should take most of tomorrow to see the rest. In case you were wondering ̵...

Wood Lottery: Jarrah?

12-03-2011 10:22 PM by Brian Shourd | 1 comment »

I was out at the local hardwood dealer picking up some purpleheart, when I saw this sticking out of a bin. It’s very rough sawn (actually, it almost looks like it came off of a pallet somewhere), and someone had written “Jarrah? $1” on it. Naturally, I had to try it. It’s like one of those scratch-off lottery tickets – you might be wasting a dollar, but you could win as much as two or even five dollars! A little time with a jack plane reveals: We...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #558: Three Down and One To Go!

12-20-2011 01:53 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Yesterday I finished the third piece of the fence characters for Ellen’s fence project. For some of you who didn’t get a chance to read, I will refresh you. Ellen and Bernie are what I call my “Canadian parents.” Bernie has been a friend of mine since I came to Canada in 2004 and they have kind of adopted me. From the time I met him, Bernie offered me the key to his shop which has a full line of tools. Since I have rented small places since I have been living he...

Pine root. Making use of a wasted material in a novel item.

01-14-2012 09:38 AM by Sman | 3 comments »

So around here there are numerous old stumps that look old and weathered, had one on the corner of my property so I cut it up for turning stock. It was very pitchy and sticky and def. not ideal wood for much. but after making a small dish from a nice swirly root clump I noticed the fine intricate grain and subtle orange translucence. So I made several small lampshade prototypes. Pitch bled out of the wood with warmer bulbs obviously. But I am about to start a project involv...
