My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #906: Making Memories

614 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Another weekend is behind us and those of us who celebrate Christmas are more likely than not scuttling around trying to get things ready in time for the day. I have memories of those days when the children were small and the family was large and I sometimes find myself looking back and wishing that I had slowed down a bit and taken the time to enjoy it a bit more. But we know we aren’t like that. When we are in the moment, with our hands full with young ones and keeping up the house...

Painting and Sharp Tools

72 days ago by AtlasRook | 4 comments »

I’ve been working on the shelves the boss wanted in the kid’s room. She wanted them white, so, after doing my research I went with poplar (inexpensive and takes paint well). I’ve got everything together, and all sanded nice. I’m actually pretty proud of how well the butt joints look after vigorous sanding. I did a disservice to my work when I was rushing through the first coat of paint. I ended up with a lot of drips that dried. Found out that there is not a lo...

What’s happening in the shop for August 10, 2010. Working various stages of 4 murphy beds for Stevens, Komusi, Connell, and Schneider.

This lamp project is going to be great. Lots of twist and character. Drilling the hole for the cord is going to be a chore, but I am ready for the challenge.

I need a ___ because... #1: it's just way too much work to drive 2-1/2" screws by hand

630 days ago by Rob | 3 comments »

My first power tool was a used Skil corded drill. Back then, I was a poor college student, and cordless drills were extremely expensive and the batteries were awful, so this drill just made sense. When I was living in my first apartment, I used it to attach a 2×6 to the frame of my window so I could mount an air conditioner in the window. I still remember cutting that 2×6 to the right width with a rusty old hand saw. What was your first power tool? How did you get it? Why di...

Awhile back I had asked if their was anything to do concerning woodworking in the Myrtle Beach area, that’s where the family went on vacation, and Huff said I would be welcome in his shop and to stop by. After talking to him some more and trying to find the time in between activity’s I was able to meet Huff and let me tell you he is the real deal, not that anyone on here is not, but Huff showed the wife and I two of his projects that he has underway and they are beautiful. I wa...

Whole House Remodel #2: Cabinet doors going up 4 at a time

293 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 10 comments »

Boy I love working with cherry. Not too hard, not too soft, doesn’t chip out much. Creates much smoother grain with router bits compared to oak which I am used to working with and is chippy. I’ve got 4 doors up and 4 more in the hopper (ready to glue together). I decided on a thinner, svelter look to these doors. I have three raised panel bits, ogee, curve, and straight. I used the straight raised panel bit on these. I love the grain of unstained cherry. This is just 3 coat...

OK guys I am back

2272 days ago by oakdust | 9 comments »

I think I am safe in saying I’ll keep my foot out of my mouth with this one. LOLLooking HVLP spraying and not sure which way to go. I have a 5 hp air compressor and thought about buying a HVLP gun, or is the Earlex 5000 a better choice? I do not have any spray experiance except the old spray can. I want to be able to spray water, oli and schellac.
