Run through thicknesses… no need for jointing this stock [it is flat and stable]...besides I do not have a large enough jointer… Freehand ripping on the bandsaw prior to jointing edge…See I only have a small one…Next step is to rip to width… no photos…Resaw on the bandsaw… b...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1557: Just about DONE!

05-21-2015 04:51 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Today is the day. Before I lay my head on my pillow tonight, I will call my "Scary-Go-Round" pattern and project "Finished"! (SLDP238) After over a month of working on it, I can finally consider it 'done' and move on to other things.  While a month may not seem very long to some of you, this project has occupied a huge part of each day (and night) and it seems that I have been living and breathing and sleeping with it nearly every second of each day. It w...

Morning all. I have made a reasonable amount of progress on the various parts. Today’s job is the seat frame. This is made of locally grown air dried Blue Gum. Heavy wood! Below are a few more pics to bring the project up to date. I started wandering around Inkscape last night….”Daunting” is a phrase that comes to mind. Anyway, I have a few projects for clients that I have held off until the Chevy is ready to work, these were originally planned to do with a birdR...

Thoughts On Working With Reclaimed Wood

05-20-2015 08:11 PM by michaelray | 3 comments »

Working with reclaimed wood can be very rewarding once the final product comes together. Unless you are purchasing it from someone who has already pulled the nails and cleaned the surface be prepared to put some effort into preparing it for projects. Collecting and preparing the raw materials often requires a lot of hard work. Having worked with a lot of reclaimed wood over the past several years more and more projects are demanding it especially since completing a barn tear down over the pas...

05-20-2015 06:32 PM by CharlieK | 4 comments »

Mary May is a fantastic woodcarver. I met her very briefly at the Handworks event last week. A friend of hers makes these brass mallets to her specifications. They have just the right heft and they look beautiful! Of all the really cool tools at Handworks, this is the one thing that I just had to have. It is the most comfortable mallet I have ever seen and I am really glad that I got one The ends on each of these mallets had hand carved embellishments and each of them was a di...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #52: Soon be able to think about woodwork again!

05-20-2015 05:56 PM by PhilBello | 4 comments »

I had a change of heart, having been out to price up the cement panels, it was going to be a costly business, so I ended up doing the same as the gazebo, I stripped off all the panels, and put them to one side, went and bought 20m2 of 8mm pine planks, a roll of mineral felt, and a few extra roof panels. Back home it was time to get going, and I soon found that Colombia was not going to change any time soon, the pine planks were supposed to be 2.5m long, my roof is 5m, including the overhan...

05-20-2015 03:49 PM by Mean_Dean | 0 comments »

Hey Guys! Well today was a big day! But more on that later. I started off by prepping the interior surfaces for the stain they’ll receive later. It’s a lot easier to do this before the box is assembled! Here are all the components of the staining and glue-up process: Next, I stained the already prepped bottom. Once the stain was dry, it was time to glue up the box carcase First, I laid out all the parts, in the order that they comprise the box sides. Then I put ...
