My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #192: Finding Inspiration

12-12-2010 04:22 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

After yesterday’s blog was finished, I went for my daily walk. As I had stated, it was snowing and turning out to be a beautiful day. I decided to take my camera on my walk with me so that I could share some pictures of what inspires me. I had spoken about being rather stuck on a gift that I was contemplating making for a friend for Christmas. Although I knew I wanted to makes something special, I was unsure as to which direction I would take. The recipient loves to do cross stitc...

Dust Extraction #2: A Clang and my Dusty Died

12-12-2010 12:30 PM by DoctorDan | 6 comments »

Today my dusty died. I was working on two toy chests for christmas. I was cutting the curve on the base moulding with a jigsaw I heard a clang, followed by a change in pitch of the dust extractor hum. My 3 week old dust extractor. I cut the power and walked over to explore. The impellar case was split… a ding in the curve… and some paint missing. I found this block of wood. A little big for a dust extractor… about 20cm long. (Tells you it’s got some...

Shaker Blanket Box #5: Base Mouldings

12-12-2010 11:09 AM by DoctorDan | 2 comments »

Base moulding completed with a combination of hand and power tools. Particularly proud of my dovetails and hand planed round over. Certainly learnt a few lessons in other areas though largely related to time and planning in the mitres, glue-up and curve cutting. The whole process is blogged in detail at the love of wood.

Their First Woodworking Show

12-12-2010 06:10 AM by Patrick Jaromin | 6 comments »

The annual woodworking show is this town weekend and I was determined to stop in to pick up some basic supplies that I can’t typically find locally in bulk. I thought it might be fun to bring the older two kids along. This turned out to be a great idea as the show ended up being more about them! The main attraction for the kids were the booths from the local clubs and associations. The Fox Valley woodworkers and DuPage Woodworkers club members paid extra attention to them, one giving...

I haven’t posted on this in a while but I have pretty much finished the work. My son got it for his 1st birthday last weekend and his grandmother is making the bedding to go inside which will finish it up. Here are a few pics.

The Start of a Challenge #4: frustration setting in again...

12-12-2010 03:56 AM by rhybeka | 0 comments »

just when I thought things might be starting to look up, I run into a whole slew of troubles to solve with this entertainment center. Again I question my sanity of just pushing through to finish this thing and keep thinking I just need to get it done and learn from the mistakes and go from there… of course I have cuts I need to make on my table saw and we’re due to get a few inches of snow and under 20 degree weather starting tomorrow. Ugh. If you guys feel like giving any input o...

Facets, the Next Logical Step #1: How hard can it be to make a Dodecahedron?

12-12-2010 03:37 AM by shipwright | 17 comments »

The next box in the series Oops!, A Llittle Cabinetree, and now Facets is on the build. It had to be started because I’ve been obsessing too much on the finish of Cabinetree and in order to amuse myself between coats I had been so bored I had started making micro plywood and then micro boxes and banding. It had to stop.So the other day I started to think about what the next logical step would be keeping the theme and some of the aspects of the others but going a very different direction...

Tasmanian Woodworking... #11: A sawmill on a mountain..

12-12-2010 02:17 AM by degoose | 16 comments »

Down south in Tasmania, at a little place called Myrtle Creek, you will meet the Carins Brothers… Rory, Roderick and George… The family have been timber loggers for 5 generations and have recently moved into milling the timber they log on the 600 acre family property… And what a great location to go to work… the views down the valley are breathtaking… I took some video footage while I was there last month and have just now got around to editing it into s...

Back to the drawing board

12-12-2010 01:26 AM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

Well, it’s been a while since I’ve had time to blog. I’ve been super busy trying to take care of things around the house and trying to make CHRISTmas gifts for the family. I’ve been working on a set of coasters for my parents and have come to the conclusion that a new design is in order. I was not abiding by the “keep it simple” principle and it came back to bite me. I haven’t taken any pics of my project thus far but I plan to once things are fin...
