Raised Panels

06-20-2008 05:21 PM by Bill Akins | 7 comments »

I am starting a cedar hope chest soon with some free cedar that was given as a gift. My plans call for raised panels which I have been wanting to try. The only router bits I can find are for 1/2 inch shank and I have a 1/4 inch shank router. I really can’t go out and get $200 worth of bits and a new router at this moment. I tried a test panel on the table saw holding the panels vertically on a high fence jig and it turned out pretty well. I have been studying on trying to do it hor...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1656: Site Update Time!

11-19-2015 01:22 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

As I write today, I promise I will keep things short. (I know – I always say that!) I want to get going on writing our newsletter that we will be sending out later on today. I also want to get to writing on the instructions for the new ornament pattern that will be available to my scroll saw followers later on today. (SLD519 - Damask Locket Ornament Pattern) (The link will work as soon as I have the pattern available on the site.) I have had such a wonderful and positive response regard...

Phase #1 Bottom Base.

11-28-2015 03:13 PM by Ken90712 | 12 comments »

Blondie has wanted this cabinet for a while now on the open wall if the kitchen. She has collected special martini glasses from our travels and wanted to display them in a glass cabinet. I had started the cabinet once but hated the wood I was using, so scraped the first one. My pops has been bored out of his mind after mom had passed last yr, so I thought, why not get him out here and help me build a cabinet. He is also a wood worker and has made many display cabinets for people and their...

Various Projects #2: Stocking/Coat hanger Part 2: Supplies

11-28-2008 03:55 AM by Tomcat1066 | 0 comments »

No project can begin without supplies. We need things like sand paper and whatnot. Well, I just ordered some and some contoured sanding grips to help sand inside the tricky spots of my stocking/coat hanger. In addition, I ordered the hooks and hangers for the back of it. So, I’m all set for getting this bad boy done as soon as they get here. Based on when I ordered, I suspect they’ll be here next Thursday, just in time for next weekend to serve for getting the whole thing don...

Creating a Lift Desk #7: First Assembly, Bolting in Mechanism, First Look

12-04-2015 09:21 PM by Underdog | 0 comments »

The next thing that happened in this sequence, was that I clamped the back and bases together, then drilled holes through the back of the bases, and into the back. I then inserted the threaded fasteners into the back, and epoxied them into place. As a side note, it takes a surprising amount of hardware to make this kind of thing. I now have a box full of 1/4” x 20 fasteners and washers. Then, with the left base lying on the finished back, I bolted it onto the back, inserted the me...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1665: Self-Challenges

12-07-2015 01:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

As a designer and and artist, I think it is important to continually learn and work toward advancing myself. It seems that every time I accomplish a certain technique or skill, I feel satisfied only for a short time and soon I begin to look for ways to push myself to a higher level. It is just my nature. Because I am fortunate enough to be able to work doing something that I love, I am able to explore these many facets of the artistic work in the name of 'work'. I admit that I am...
