Trying out the Consignment Route #4: A bit of feedback and a photo!

06-20-2011 09:58 PM by KnotCurser | 8 comments »

It’s been just shy of twenty days now and my curiosity got the better of me. I picked up the phone and gave the shop a call. As always the co-owner who I talked to could NOT have been nicer! She stated that while my works were generating a TON of conversation and questions, none were sold yet. She is hoping that the upcoming 4th of July weekend is approaching and to “keep our fingers crossed”. I have a feeling they are priced a tad bit high and will have to be low...

Roubo Cabinet #15: Hardware

07-20-2011 10:44 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 9 comments »

Q: What do you call a drawer that doesn’t open?A: Rework. Okay, lame joke but it’s a decent intro to the challenge of finding drawer pulls for this Roubo Cabinet of mine. Design constraints? Not many, but they’re important ones. 1. Stout enough to work on drawers full of tools (potentially heavy)2. Aesthetically in sync with the cabinet (I’ll know it when I see it)3. Hardware can’t stick out / interfere with the sliding deadman First thing I thought of were those wildly unde...

Estate/Garage Sale Finds #2: Great finds!

08-05-2011 01:36 AM by hodgepodge | 7 comments »

Alright, this was the most awesome estate sale I have ever seen (out of three…). I guess I will continue this series with what led me to go check out the sale. Here’s the picture which made me stop by. The description of the estate sale says how there is an unbelievable amount of hand tools and power tools. This picture doesn’t do justice in regards to how much stuff this guy had. He must of had some sort of combo plane infatuation. I picked up these two Stanley No. 4...

Vortex Dust Collector Modification using a 14" wok #3 Conclusions/Observations'& Opinions

08-16-2011 06:36 PM by Toolz | 2 comments »

This morning I jointed an sanded a 16”x36” x4/4 piece of the “mystery wood” that I have since learned is probably American Sycamore. I have a metal trash can with a Woodcraft lid used as a pre-separator that catches the large chips etc. from the jointer. After milling and sanding I removed the canister to take a look. Wonder of wonders it did not have nearly as much sawdust caked as I had expected to see. I think removing the copper tubes that I used to lower the wok w...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #463: (Happily) Back to Drawing

09-16-2011 11:52 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am pleased to report that although yesterday had a shaky beginning, in the end it really turned out to be a good day. I am learning my way around this customer service maze that I find myself in sometimes and I am actually starting to figure out the right person to contact when certain issues come up with my website. I know that sounds like it should be a given, but when maintaining the websites’ ability to take and process orders, it involves several codependent elements which al...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #479: Researching 'Attractive' Possibilities

10-02-2011 01:06 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

A couple of weeks ago while picking around, I found something that intrigued me. I forget what I was looking for, but I stumbled across some magnetic sheeting on Ebay. Now I am not one to generally shop at Ebay. Once in a while I will see a copy of a ‘vintage’ painting book or something like that but other than that I don’t really want to take the time to scout it out and bid and all of that. Besides – by the time all the charges are added for shipping to Canada,...

52 Weeks #40: Birthday Weekend

10-17-2011 03:33 AM by clieb91 | 4 comments »

So this past Friday was my birthday and my wife and daughter presented me with some nice small gifts. My DW looked at my Lee Valley wish list and got me a couple of things. Looking forward to using them all, including the Gimlets. Even though I love my drill press I do like the quiet of the simple hand tools once in awhile. The wood came from the local wood store and I am pretty sure it is a piece of Padauk. Perhaps I will work on something to give her for Christmas from it :) In ot...

Mrs Tiny

12-18-2011 07:58 AM by BigTiny | 16 comments »

Greetings all. Mrs Tiny is in hospital again with a complication of her diabetes. She had a foot infection this past summer that has returned with a vengeance. It has settled into her right big toe which has turned a dark purple and the doctors aren’t sure if it will have to be amputated or not. She will be hospitalized until Tuesday afternoon at the least, and we find out then what will happen. I lost my left big toe at age ten to a power lawn mower. If she loses hers, it wil...
