New adventure into woodworking #2: More data for those who like data

09-03-2012 04:19 PM by Dave66 | 1 comment »

It occurred to me that some folks might want some hard data on the new shop. This is presented in the intent to inform only. As I said earlier, we extracted some equity from the house to pay for an addition. We are adding an attached addition to the existing structure. This addition is approximately 17.5 ft wide by about 50 ft long. It will include an over-sized third vehicle bay with storage and added driveway to the existing garage, and an attached shop space behind. The garage bay is ex...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #824: Patience

09-21-2012 11:18 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

I started writing a blog once already today. I had half a page done, and I didn’t really like how it read, so I deleted it. The funny part of it was that the subject of the post was ‘indecision.’ Perhaps it should have been written after all. While going through the many changes that our business is experiencing at this time. it is sometimes difficult to know if what we are doing is the right thing. I suppose there is nothing in this life that is certain, and the only w...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #840: Rumors of My Retirement Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

10-08-2012 10:47 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

I received a couple of emails yesterday regarding my post of Saturday. They expressed concern that I may be giving up designing scroll saw patterns and looking into something else. I just want to come out and say for certain that it is not my intention at all to do so, and if I led some of you to think that I was heading in that direction, rest assured I am not. This past month or so has been somewhat tedious for both Keith and myself. As when anyone loses trust in someone that they had o...

BORG Quality and Prices

11-11-2012 09:03 PM by Luke | 2 comments »

I have always told my wife that the BORG store that is 5 min from our house sells convenience not quality when it comes to hardwood and sheet goods, but I don’t think it really dawned on me until last week. I stopped buying sheet goods from them and the like a while ago, but as home improvement projects often result in numerous trips to said store, I sometimes get lazy. I have been working on a built in desk unit that will span the length of a wall (nearly 17 feet) that will be th...

Pallet Craft #28: What the waka? Stress relief.

11-27-2012 02:39 PM by Ethan Harris | 1 comment »

Good Morning All, Ever run into a piece of wood (pallet wood in this case) and wonder; “How the heck did that warp like that?” Working with pallet wood can be a twisted mess of metal, warp and work. These things lead to a lot of distress trying to make them work for a project, leading you to want to pull your hair straight out. Sometimes you just have to llook at it and say in the words of the great Fozzie Bear, ”What the waka?” This is where I stop and cl...

Mobile Torsion Box Workbench #7: Final Thoughts

01-28-2013 12:22 AM by Ron Stewart | 3 comments »

In some ways, building a workbench was liberating. I generally build furniture-type projects, where I agonize over every little flaw. With this project, I didn’t have to worry about little dents, minor tear-out, etc. Of course, I wanted to do a good job, but I kept telling myself, “It’s just a bench. It’s going to get dinged up eventually.” Having said that, I understand what leads some people to build showcase-quality benches that look nicer than most people&...

Feedback on New ACW Site

03-10-2013 10:09 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 12 comments »

Hey guys! I have been working hard on my site so I can better “Share the Love~Share the Knowledge” and so I have switched my site to a new platform and am on my 3rd template as I try to see what will fit my needs the best. I still have a lot of work to do as far as adding project galleries. I will probably continue to change some details like color, but the format is what I am focused on for now. I just wanted to get the right template and basic layout going before I put too...
