Framed Fossils #1: Trilobite Fossil in oak frame with bronze accents photo blog

06-09-2011 12:27 AM by Dan'um Style | 10 comments »

There is a man in my town that has a private museum. He has hundreds and hundreds of items, all in display cases with custom spot lighting … the whole nine yards. A for-real rich guy. Well anyway he hurt his back and is in a wheel chair, is getting old, downsizing etc. He put up an eBay auction for a few fossils and because he had such a new eBay number, no one bid on his objects much. I bought a couple pieces before he gave up selling on eBay.......Frame is white oak and is 16 inches a...

Getting Started #3: After a short delay....

08-18-2011 10:17 PM by Tim | 3 comments »

... of about 3 years, I have finally found some time to start back on the workshop. Between a minor bout with cancer and my usual pursuit of wealth, I temporarily ran out of inspiration (not for woodworking, but for finishing out the shop room.) I finally had to admit that dry walling was not my forte, so I hired out the job. One contractor disappeared half way through the job and it took a while find someone reliable. I also broke down and hired a licensed electrician to wire up my 110...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #466: A Quiet and Very Productive Day

09-19-2011 01:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Yesterday went pretty much as I hoped it would. That is always a good thing, but it doesn’t make for very exciting blog reading. That’s OK though. A day or two without turmoil in my life is a good thing I think. Every day doesn’t have to be an adventure. I spent the morning finishing up on the drawings for my next pattern set. I am happy with them and I think that they came out every bit as good as the first set. I am going to be cutting them out today and I always ...

IS SEARS saying GOOD BYE to the CRAFTSMAN name, or are these just really LOW prices.

10-19-2011 05:58 AM by Delta356 | 22 comments »

Hi all, I was on the Craftsman web cite this fine evening when I started looking at there tools and saw some tools that I had not seen before looking to be older models, but then I looked at the price of the tools. $131.00 for a table saw… Something seems wired here????? Anyways if thats the price and if your a LJ and want to get some big toys I would take advantage of these prices…. Wish I was not such a Delta SNOB>>> LOL..

I Posted a picture of the 6 ft santa in the projects section. I started the project about a year ago and did’t get very far and some health problems kept me from working on it.

Trials and Tribulations #3: I Might Need Intervention

12-20-2011 06:18 PM by DamnYankee | 6 comments »

HELP – I think I’m addicted to bandsaw reindeer! Luckily its the season for reindeer…. I recently purchased an old Buffalo 14” bandsaw that I’ve refurbished (this is my first BS). And as a means to improve my BS skills (pun intended?) I thought I’d give the reindeer thing a try. Now I find myself playing with the pattern to make tall reindeet, short reindeer, fat ones and skinny ones. If I keep this up I’ll have more reindeer than Santa. I...
