My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1168: An "Unorganized" Blog

254 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It’s getting to be that time of year. While I don’t mind sharing things here in my blog, there are some times when I simply can’t. I am working on some secret gift exchanges and I want them to be a surprise. It makes it hard though, as I kind of put myself out here every day and everyone sees what I am up to. If I don’t think ahead, I have little to talk about. Yesterday I attended a “Penny Sale” for the feral wharf cats in our area that live on ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1184: The Time Machine of Designing

236 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I had to switch gears yesterday and jump from snowmen and snow globes to chicks and spring colors. I suppose that is part of what I really enjoy about my job – I am never working on anything long enough to be ‘bored’ with it. This is truly an exciting time of year for me. I know that I can say that just about any time of year, but with the holiday season upon us, it seems that I am working on more projects and directions and the days pass by very quickly. I am sure that p...

Works in Progress #1: Humidor - and so it begins...

216 days ago by Jerry | 6 comments »

I was going to build a humidor for my brother in law, Raul, for Christmas, but at the last minute, I decided to hold off and consult with him to find out his specific desires. Good thing I did, now I’m armed with knowledge, a lot of great new tools to help me facilitate the task, two of which he bought me for Christmas. First this lovely Veritas dovetail guide and this great addition to my router plane, an inlay cutter head Just got back from Woodcrafters with some lovely ...

Workshop Development #77: Very busy Saturday... Got the paint on!

199 days ago by dbhost | 13 comments »

Well it’s been an eventful day. First off, I installed the 9 bulb chandelier that LOML wanted for Christmas in the dining room. I have filled it with 28 watt screw in Halogen screw in bulbs. Even with the muted globes this thing puts out enough light with these bulbs to make me feel like a 747 is landing on my head! Next we took my Father in Law out to Thai food for lunch. He had never experienced Thai and liked it! Woo Hoo! We ran a couple of errands and came back home. I finishe...

184 days ago by benchbuilder | 4 comments »

Well its been four weeks now since my heartattack, cant say i recommend it, but i did get a nice valve job..

After laying out one board for milling i decided to use my newly rehabed #5 to clean up and square two sides for the power planer. Only had six pieces to do for the legs. Well after about 45 mins. I was done, but done in more then one way. I was sweatting beyond belief, and g...

Deep Thoughts - Reader Beware #10: Sometimes, it's just ugly.

167 days ago by Sandra | 40 comments »

First, the caveat: I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about woodworking, trying to make sense of what it is that has always drawn me to it. I’m notorious for over-thinking, overanalyzing and basically spending too much energy navel-gazing. This blog is intended to get some of it out of my head. I’ll be glib, sarcastic and flippant in my other posts. Who knows how this one will turn out. It may be a train wreck, so reader beware! If navel-gazing doesn’t hold any appeal or distraction...

First impressions of tuning and using a kanna

116 days ago by siavosh | 5 comments »

So my first kanna just arrived all the way from Japan. A Koyama brand (intro level plane) I got from toolsfromjapan. After reading and watching all the articles and videos I could find, I’ve been tweeking it and practicing all week. Conclusion after the first week: there’s a lot to learn. Unlike my LN Jack plane, I feel the learning curve is much higher in setting one up, but it’s by no means out of reach. So far, the curls are slowly reaching the level of my western styl...

Removing table leg without damage to the wood/table

73 days ago by DonB | 0 comments »

I posted earlier, asking a question about what worked to loosen old glue and remove a table leg without damage to the leg. Indirectly I found my own answer. Fornby’s paint remover. If you have any slit or space behind the old leg, Fornby’s will eventually loosen the joint and free the leg without damage to the leg itself. You have to pester the leg until it gives up, but it works. Now I just have to duplicate the leg clean out the old joint make the new tendon slightly bigger...
