My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1064: Patience and Flexibility - Two Ingredients for Success

06-21-2013 10:41 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Today’s post will once again be rather quick. On Wednesday night, we received a reorder for Haunted Masquerade kits from Artist’s Club and we needed to switch gears so we could get them done: I was happy to get this order so early in the year. That means that they are doing well and hopefully there will be more orders to follow. We immediately turned into “production mode” and got about half the order done yesterday. The printing of the patterns actually ...

Maybe the beginning of a larger project #3: Real life intervenes yet again :-(

07-11-2013 12:45 AM by Mark Shymanski | 4 comments »

Have only had a few moments these last couple of days to get in the shop. I’ve faired the lines a bit more but am not quite satisfied with the result so I need to spend a bit more time. I’d cut my chine logs but I am now really considering using stitch and glue instead to learn more about the method so when it comes time to build myself a ‘pullin’ boat I won’t be completely new at it. I really like the looks of those Whitehall gigs. Well gotta get back to the...

Rings #3: next phase of rings

07-27-2013 11:50 PM by Thomas Hanson | 3 comments »

I’ve probably given away about 20 rings by now to friends and nurses I met during my difficulties. I wanted to get a bit more sophisticated now that I’m used to my lathe. Here are a few more. This one is Osage, red cedar (juniperis) and walnut veneer. This one is pecan heartwood and osage orange. This one is walnut and pecan sapwood. This is just plain Elm but I like the photo. Here are a couple of my attempts to add veneer to the rings. They tend to want to ...

DMT Sharpening Station #1: First Chapter

08-27-2013 07:08 PM by GMatheson | 9 comments »

Over the past year I have been collecting DMT DiaSharp stones one at a time. This is what have: Extra-Extra Coarse (120x)Extra Coarse (220x)Fine (600x)Extra Fine (1200x)Extra-Extra Fine (8000x) Now that I have a full collection I decided to make a sharpening station for them. Up to now they have all been sitting on the bench or where ever else they wouldn’t be in the way. My goal is to have them all inset into a piece of plywood so they will always be together and accessible. ...

Restoring #2: Eagle statue

10-03-2013 06:36 PM by Dominik Matus | 7 comments »

This eagle is part of St. John’s statue from 17th century altar from Moravian village Dolní Dunajovice (Czech republic). Eagle’s wings was lost and replaced with paper ones. When we removed the paper, some notes and music sheets was discovered in it. Schoolmate Petr did some research with professors from local university department of music history and they think it could be from year 1630. I made a right wing, left was made by next schoolmate. More photos later. :) Photo of al...

View Tim Anderson's profile Which Tim Builds a Saw Bench (Part 1)

10-29-2013 03:07 PM by Tim Anderson | 2 comments »

So, I have decided to build a saw bench in the style of Stumpy Nubs design (more or less). This is in part a learning exercise, and in part because sawing things on the workbench isn’t the most comfortable way to do it. There have been some challenges along the way, but I’ve nearly got the mortises and tenons for the legs all cut and fitted, which leaves only the draw-boring and the dovetails for the top, give or take a couple holes for holdfasts. I started by cutting out the t...

First Aid Station - A $100 Worth Spending

12-05-2013 10:57 PM by NickyP | 3 comments »

The idea of having a First Aid Station was not at the forefront of my thinking when I began assembling a woodworking shop. However, when I stumbled upon some good information over at the Wood Whisper regarding this I quickly realized the extreme importance of it and created what I hope & feel is a good mix of what should prove to be beneficial in the wood shop if and/or when it may be needed. The basket sits at about eye level with the telephone right underneath and a first aid ch...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1231: Diversification

01-27-2014 01:03 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am often asked how I found my success by people who are thinking of starting their own business. I find this a hard question to answer, because the term ‘success’ means different things to different people. For myself, doing something that I love to do every day is a degree of success. The fact that we are able to survive financially on that business and that we are comfortable with that level of income also adds to the mix. That doesn’t mean that we wouldn’t lik...
