Bandsaw tension quick release addition

08-19-2017 06:18 PM by Oldtool | 1 comment »

I am currently in between projects and seeking something to do in the shop, so I decided to install a bandsaw tension release lever. My bandsaw is an Hatachi model CB13F, 12 inch saw that was also sold by Sears with the Craftsman model number 137.224320. Not interested in starting from scratch, I looked around the internet and found two possibly easy adaptable solutions by Grizzly; a lever device and a (as they call it) clutch device. I decided the easiest one to try would be the clutch re...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1851: Tall Ships

08-16-2017 12:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday I did something I rarely do – I took the day 'off'. There were several reasons that I did this. Lately, things have been busier than ever and I was beginning to feel a bit overwhelmed. After many years of having my own business, I realize that working seven days a week – even when we are busy – isn't always the best answer to getting caught up. Sometimes it is best to take a step back and rest and do something completely unrelated to 'work'...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1850: A Milestone

08-14-2017 12:43 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

A long time ago, I read that in order to achieve your goals, you need to first set them. As simple as it sounds, how many times is the list of things we wish to accomplish undefined and 'blurry'?  How many times are we flying by the seat of our collective pants and not really sure exactly what we intend to accomplish?  When this happens to me, I must admit that not only do I not achieve as much as I would like, but I feel a higher level of stress as well.About a year an...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1849: Getting Back in the Habit

08-10-2017 12:53 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Once again it seems that I am catching up here on my blog posts. I am finding that it is harder than I thought to get back into the habit of writing each day. These days, every morning it seems that I wake up with a long list of things to do. I find myself putting off posting to just do a couple of things and before I know it, the morning gets away from me and I look to post 'tomorrow'. Then the cycle begins again. But I am determined to keep posting here and get back into the ha...

Shop stuff #100: Monster Computer Base pt 1....a slow start

08-07-2017 08:12 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I have been away from editing video for a while. Been busy with other things. Today was rainy, so I started another series on a base for a computer tower for my niece’s boyfriend. Problems occur with bad materials, but I guess it was good practice. Next time, we start over. View on YouTube

When Designing a Cabinet it Should be Frameless

08-03-2017 02:04 PM by CalOrgill | 10 comments »

Okay Guys Lets get down to business. I am in the process of designing a few night stands and a custom dresser to go with the bed that I recently build for myself. Face frame or Frameless?? I have decided to go frameless even though my cabinet will be less structurally sound. A traditional cabinet is not efficient. the cabinet is big and bulky. There is at least 3/4” more of wood all the way around the entire project for no reason. It takes more time to build cut and sand. it al...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1848: New Pattern and some Changes on the Horizon

07-31-2017 01:56 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Another week has passed and lots of new things are happening here at Sheila Landry Designs. Unfortunately, most of the things that we are doing don't make very good blog material. It is hard to document some of the day-to-day activities without putting everyone asleep. But trust me – I think it will be worth it for everyone. . . As many of you know, while I began my business and website (nearly 20 years ago) as a means to offer mostly scroll saw patterns to woodworkers, I ...

Five Projects to Help Kids Learn the Craft of Nailing

07-25-2017 11:09 PM by Jack McKee | 2 comments »

Looking back at the first year I taught woodworking my main mistakes were making projects too difficult and assuming kids could use tools, at least a little. Wrong. Most kids had never picked up a tool, and the ones who had really didn’t know how to use them. Nailing is a perfect example. Kids emphasize pounding, which is not surprising. They don’t pay attention to where the nails go. There was never a thought to drilling a pilot hole first (how would they know) and when they tried to nail ...
