My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #922: Perspective

01-03-2013 11:32 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I spent much of the day yesterday drawing the new design. It was one of those that I drew one way, than after spending several hours trying to get things to work one way, I decided it would be better to approach things from an entirely different direction. It wasn’t exactly like starting from square one again, but maybe from square two or three. It is funny how I get these ideas and can picture them in my head, but they aren’t quite clear yet. Sometime getting them to reali...

Introduction and Thanks

01-16-2013 10:48 AM by dan81 | 10 comments »

Hi. I just wanted to introduce myself and say thank you to the LJ’s that welcomed me when I first signed up. That was a nice surprise. And now a litlle bit about my “shop”: I take over my Wife’s screened-in porch once the weather gets cold, and so I can only do woodworking in the winter. I have plastic on the windows and a small heater. It’s cold, but it works. All glue-ups happen in my living room! (Got a great wife, needless to say). I really like woodwo...

Any advice for using Mesquite – my Father-in-law has some beautiful peices he is giving me from his ranch in Texas. ... thoughts were to do some turnings for bowls etc. since the pieces are small. Also – any advice on cutting the wood into slabs and drying it to help prepare it for use.

Dungeon to Lair: That's the plan at least... #26: Up, Up, & Away! Well Almost!!!

03-26-2013 11:07 PM by DIYaholic | 11 comments »

With the winter season over and spring here(?), so they tell us, I will be losing my current lumber storage!!! Yea, YIPEE!!! A potential travesty in the making for some people, but not me. Why be happy about losing storage space? Well…..~~~~Here is a pic of my current lumber storage: Considering how I treated this unused white oak flooring, it’s a good thing I ain’t got no expensive or exotic woods. My vehicle will soon be evicted also, to make room for the 3 company snow...

Mission Style Pedestal Table #2: Getting the Materials

04-26-2013 10:32 PM by Douglas | 2 comments »

I was able to make it out to my hardwood supplier today, with cut list and measuring tape in hand. I made for the quarter sawn white oak section, and went to town. I quickly realized my cut list was overly optimistic regarding the widths I would find (does any cut list survive contact with the hardwood store?), and I had to make a lot of adjustments to for what was on hand. Somehow, I thought I’d be able to get more 10” or greater wide boards, but the majority were 8” or so....

4 Poster Cannonball Bed #9: routing for bed rail hangers

05-14-2013 09:27 AM by BryanatWoodstock | 0 comments »

I made up a jig for the colt router to accurately cut width and depth for the hangers. I use another trim router to cut relief slots for the hooksBy adding a spacer block to the jig, cut the mortise on the ends of the bed rails.Added a 1.72×2 inch strip to support the box spring. On the second glue up found out that the 83&1/4” length of the other rail I measured for the support was 1/4” too long. I thought I had trimmed the rails to length weeks ago, rails should be 82&#...
