The Wine Rack #2: Preliminary Design

04-08-2010 04:50 PM by Todd Clare | 10 comments »

I’ve measured the space where I’m going to put the rack, and started to want to visualize the design. I opted to fire up Google SketchUp which has been really useful for me in the past in laying things out and seeing them in 3D. This is the preliminary design only, as I still need to move things around and make sure the spacing and height and shadow lines are where I think I might want them. One of the challenges was how to make it “light” looking, and making the ...

Extremely Average #111: Lawn Care...Woodworking's Evil Twin

04-23-2010 03:24 AM by Ecocandle | 4 comments »

Hello Lumberjocks, Tonight’s post, on a scale of 1 to 37, is a solid 29. I am not sure if the woodworking community will care to read about my lawn adventure today, or agree that Lawn Care is the Evil twin of Woodworking, but I welcome the debate. There is one other significant aspect to tonight’s blog. I have, to some small measure, tipped the scales a little bit away from my obvious cat bias, and included a really cute picture of Maggie, the neighbor’s dog. I am s...

Clock Update - Hurry Up and Wait!

05-19-2010 12:27 AM by NewPickeringWdWrkr | 5 comments »

Progress being made on my clock project – Ironic that I’m having to continue my learning of patience on a project to make a time measurement piece. Check out my progress here to read about my exploits as I reflect and continue this project. Here are also some additional pictures I decided to not include in the blog.Rear side of the face & frame assembly. There’s a gap between the face and the lower rail of the frame to allow the pendulum to swing freely. Note that ...

Just for Fun... #20: Down to the Last Pegs...

06-16-2010 05:48 AM by littlecope | 18 comments »

Time to wrap this one up…I got in a full morning and part of the afternoon’s play today and completed the assembly… almost. Started by pegging the corners of the lid togetherThen the bottom, first up and into the bottom corners, then down through the top halfwayThe clamping on those may look precarious, but is actually very well balanced. I clamp each corner individually that way and lift the whole assembly to where I tap in the pegs.With that done, I finally fill in the exp...

Wine Bottle Stpper Products

Currently I am making two styles of stoppers, cork and the metal o-ring type from Rockler ( I like the crome o-ring type from Rockler because of it’s sealing capability. I presently get my cork from Packard Woodworks ( and can make stoppers cheaply and use them as a l...

PROJECT # 25I purchased this block of of wood for a turning project, but at the time did not know what I would do with it. The block was very inexpensive- about $30.00. At the time it had a label on it but I took the label off and now I do not know what species of wood it is. Can you tell by looking? It is now in the first coat of finish, so almost done.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #94: After the Storm - Good Things on the Horizon

09-05-2010 02:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

We didn’t do too badly with the storm and all. Although there was a bit of rain and some wind, there was nothing frightening or horrible about it. It has been dry here this summer too, so the rain is probably welcome by most. A little after noon, we figured out that we needed milk and ventured out to the store because nothing is open in our area on Sunday and there is a holiday for Labor Day on Monday so things would be closed also. It wasn’t even raining when we went out, alth...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #106: Facing Challenges

09-17-2010 01:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

It is a cold, dark and rainy day so far today. I wonder if that is an indication of things to come? I have to go to the bank and the post office today and I really don’t look forward to getting wet. It is raining pretty hard and the wind is coming off the ocean so it seems pretty nasty out. Perhaps it will let up by the time the bank opens. I have a long laundry list of things to accomplish today. I don’t like this many loose ends and it is time to take a full day to clean...
