Getting my tools ready #14: How do I get the best out of an OLD DELTA 40-650 Type I? Need experienced advice!

06-06-2014 05:32 PM by DocSavage45 | 6 comments »

LJ’s I purchased a Delta C arm 18” scroll saw. It has been a misadventure born out of poverty. LOL! Have an intarsia, project in mind. It’s for an artist friend. An inlay into a box made from one of his great paintings. Purchased the 40-650 Type I Scroll Saw at least 3 months ago, maybe longer ( brought it home driving several hours in a blizzard). De rusted the aged metal table, painted and cleaned up the old girl. Looked good! The clamping mechanism and the cl...

I do so enjoy a hand plane! The connection to the work is so much more fulfilling than power tools. Cant quite explain the feeling of removing material in long smooth shavings. Continued at::

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1366: New Ornaments Completed

07-23-2014 10:45 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I had another busy day yesterday. I had to take my kitty Coco to the vet yesterday to get a little bump on her paw checked out. Fortunately, it turned out to be nothing and she is fine. I was kind of worried that she would have to go through surgery or something like that to get it removed, but the vet said it wasn't a concern.  I am sure Coco was happy as well, but she still wasn't thrilled with the ride to the vet and back (about 45 minutes each way). She was just thrilled to b...

New woodworking job

08-12-2014 10:00 PM by Michaelgurrado | 9 comments »

I recently just lost my day job for a woodworking company that made high end custom frames. I was working there for a while and business had begun to slow down and because I was the low man on the totem pole my hours were reduced and then ultimately they cut me loose. This was extremely upsetting and disappointing for me. I liked the company and I liked the work I did, my coworkers were not all that bad either. That being said I started looking for a new job doing anything, but I knew I wa...

Starting a youtube channel for wheelchair woodworkers and what not

09-03-2014 06:22 AM by cdaniels | 21 comments »

So i’ve been doing a lot of sitting on my tuckus and i’ve got the wild hair of an idea that since i’m now in a wheelchair and I am a diehard woodworker than why not try to help out the rest of the randoms out there that are in a similar situation? Problem with this is that I have no video editing, or making experience at all. I’m thinking about just starting with a basic introduction video introducing myself and outlining a few things that i’ll be doing in my vid...

Help For Old Guys Like Me

01-14-2007 08:05 AM by Don | 6 comments »

Ever wonder what those abbreviations you read in blogs mean? Well if you didn’t grow up with text messaging, you probably do. I kept reading things like LOL, OTB, and n00b wondering whether the writer was an illiterate. Then I realized I was caught in a paradigm shift without even knowing it. So fret no more here’s a text abbreviation dictionary for old farts like me. PTL

One of three ideas I’m currently pondering involves this natural edged slab-o-pine in some way… approx 6’ x 8-10” x 3” That's all I've got to say. (And nothing else to show. Really.)

Almost ready for a dry fit. Got every thing mortised and tenons cut still have one more mortise to cut for the strechers on the legs and i’LL dry fit it. Still a lot of sanding and staining. I even have the strips of ebony cut last night. still have to cut into 1/4 in. lengths, but I think I’m gonna make them just a tad longer. I’m finding a lot of brown streaking in the ebony, is that normal? Just the type of ebony I have? Anyway I’m gonna have to dye with a dark mark...
