My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #295: Setting Up

03-25-2011 12:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Well, we will finally be able to get into the convention hall and set things up today. We will also be able to meet everyone who is involved in the show. Yesterday was an odd day. I am really really glad that we got here when we did but I felt like it was one of those “wait to hurry up” types of days. Jeannie and her husband Bill were busy with the final preparations, as you can imagine. Keith and I spent most of the morning looking around and shopping. Our hotel is righ...

Re-use, Renew, Recycle #1: Stereo/Entertainment Centre Stand

06-08-2011 09:52 PM by BritBoxmaker | 8 comments »

A little over 25 years ago I made a Stereo Racking Stand for my 80’s stereo separates. Its still in use today Its made of Pine veneered chipboard with softwood legs. A little while ago I scored a vintage Bang and Olufsen 80’s music centre (perched on top of the stand) from our local Freecycle ( web site where unwanted goods are placed, up for grabs, for FREE). Why? you may be asking yourselves. Well for it’s day it was top of the range. With remote control which all b...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #379: Working and More Class Planning

06-23-2011 01:28 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I thought that I would have gotten a bit farther yesterday than I actually did, but I can’t say it was a bad day at all. I suppose that sometimes things just take more time then we anticipate. I used to do that more then I do now, but I have been pretty realistic about mapping out and achieving my goals lately. I think writing things down here in the mornings helps me a lot with sticking to a plan. Even if I want to change things up in the middle of the day, at least I have a framew...

A long running project nears completion #5: The Neck

07-07-2011 11:20 PM by Tony | 0 comments »

At some point along the way, I decided the stock neck was not sufficient. I’m pretty sure it was made of Alder, and surprisingly soft for the neck of a steel-string guitar. I was going to install a different style tuner, and messed up the stock headstock trying to cut string slots, so off it came. Turning again to eBay, I found a nice stock of Black Walnut cut in sheets about 3’ long, so after planing them smooth, I laminated a neck blank from the BW and some Maple I had from anot...

AWFS - Las Vegas 2011 #2: Another learning day

07-23-2011 05:08 AM by BillyJ | 3 comments »

No wonderful tool pictures today, but had a great time talking with the experts. We stopped at almost every finish and finishing tool company today. Asked a LOT of questions, and were able to walk away with more knowledge then we had 15-min prior. I was abe to actually see some cool tools and materials that will make a world of difference in the shop. There are still enough booths left for us to visit that it should take most of tomorrow to see the rest. In case you were wondering ̵...
