12-05-2010 02:44 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

Recently when working with some purple heart wood, my partner noticed something unusual. (Maybe it was not so unusual, but it was to us) In choosing a piece of wood for his projects, he noticed that some of the purple heart looked more purple and other areas of it looked more brownish. He was choosing the piece to make some small overlay pieces on his new ornament patterns and thought the purple color would be suitable. In his observations, he saw that one edge in particular was quite ...

The Re-designed Mortise Pal #1: Evolution to Excellence

12-05-2010 11:14 AM by newTim | 2 comments »

If you didn’t have to improve a great product would you bother? Would your improvements be incremental or would you really go for it? This is a blog not just about the simplicity and functionality of this jig, but also the progression of the inventor’s ideas and how they are incorporated into the latest model. For those not familiar with this tool, it is a router jig that facilitates perfectly sized and matched mortises for fixed or loose tenon joinery. It was won many awar...

So you think you can go pro ? :) #3: TIME !!!!!

12-05-2010 07:19 AM by sawblade1 | 13 comments »

Good Evening LJ’sOne of the biggest challenges facing small businesses in my eyes is not money but time. Time? but why well after starting my business I learned the most valuable asset is time And also one of the most mismanaged ones also. My father put in plain English Time will buy you money, but money will not buy you time. Time comes and it goes never returns or goes back, is never recovered or recycled, once it is gone you can’t change it or bring it back, but you can contr...

Ain't Life Grand? #1: A big change for us (and more to come)

12-05-2010 07:07 AM by rsmith71 | 15 comments »

The last two months have been absolutely insane around our home. We have had some additions to our family marked with tragedy and lots of laughs and love.My wife is an elementary teacher in a small rural district. Two months ago, we received a phone call from her principal and friend that the mother of one of my wife’s students was in the local emergency room. She had no close family and her two children (ages 5 & 11) were with her. My wife turned to me in tears asking what do we do...

Hello All, I really miss spending hours upon hours in my shop, but alas, I am super busy these days. I do find a little bit of time to continue building the latest Henry Wood story. As many of you have pointed out, there are lots and lots of spelling errors. I always appreciate the help. I would also like to apologize for each chapter’s lack of polish. I have little time, and find myself rushed to get the post up by 10:00. Tonight I failed in that regard, by almost 40 minutes. ...

Built-In Bed #8: Unexpected Visitors

12-05-2010 04:29 AM by Scott R. Turner | 0 comments »

(The Story So Far: Our Hero is constructing a built-in bed for his daughter, with inadequate tools and woodworking experience, and so far has made only a small number of terrible errors, which fortunately he can blame on others.) Thanksgiving break saw the family traveling out to Arizona for a family gathering. Much fun and merriment was had by all, and we took advantage of the break to crack the windows in the garage and let the paint dry thoroughly and finish outgassing. When we retur...
