My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1525: Art Play Date 2015 Kicking Off

03-30-2015 11:59 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I had a really busy and productive weekend. On Saturday, we got another couple of inches of SNOW, much to my dismay. Even though I love winter, I must admit that it is getting a bit tiresome and I am looking very much to the upcoming spring again. I miss being able to walk in the woods or go to the beach. I also am very anxious to have my car back. I won't do that until the roads are fully clear. I am not really one to complain though. Especially about things like the weather, which ...

Hand Tools #4: Want nice Moxon vise hardware on the cheap?

03-29-2015 12:38 AM by Jerry | 11 comments »

If you’ve ever gazed longingly at Benchcrafted's Moxon vise hardware kit for $149.00, get a load of this, Grizzly sells really nice cast iron hand wheels for as little as $10.95. You can get some threaded rod at the hardware store for very little, add a couple of nuts and bolts, and you’re there for a lot less money. If you want to get the Acme threaded rod, you can get a 3 foot length of 3/4” here for $16.95 ADDENDUM: Well there seems to be a serious “go...

Thorsen House Cabinet #7: Putting it to the wood!

03-27-2015 05:33 PM by EläväPuu | 0 comments »

Hi everyone! I’ve been somewhat out of radio contact due to pressing work for my degree and working on a business startup…. Between then (when was the last post?) and now, the entire piece was constructed in Solidworks, had the bugs refined out (mostly avoiding work overcomplication and basic logistics), ripped apart and reconstructed. Very little has changed from the original dimensions and layout. The recipient of the largest changes were the doors in terms of the muntin/mull...

I'll get there yet! #2: I'll get there yet! #2

OK, I’m stumped again! Ugh. I’m not sure how to continue this blog. Is this how or do I do something else? I’m getting frustrated. I wanted to know also, can I upload other projects I have completed to my projects page or do I submit them one at a time in the new project part? I know I’m old but, sheesh……...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1524: NWA Woorworkers Showcase in Saratogo Springs, NY

03-27-2015 11:58 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

As we close out the final weekend of March, I can't help but be amazed at how quickly the year is passing by. I realize that for most who have been experiencing an exceptionally snowy winter, time is not moving fast enough. But for myself, it seems that these first three months of 2015 have zoomed by in a flash. Being busy can do that to you.I was pretty much out of commission yesterday as far as my computer goes. It seemed to have a problem running slow in the morning and after running a...

I'll get there yet! #1: I'll get there yet!

Wow! It’s been an education trying out this new site. I just got on a couple of days ago and have been trying to start a blog since. This is my third try, LOL. Obviously, I’ve been writing stuff in the wrong places and couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t seeing anything. I finally figured it out, I think! I have to say that this is a great website so far and I keep looking at everyone’s projects. Wow, again! There is some fabulous talent out there. Hopeful...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1522: Working Ahead

03-25-2015 12:18 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

It is a beautiful and sunny Wednesday morning here in Nova Scotia. One would expect to open the window and hear the birds chirping cheerfully, welcoming the dawning of another spectacular day. But that isn't really the case (yet!). There is still about two feet of snow on the ground and although the sky is clear and the sun bright, it will be just a while longer until we find ourselves rid of the snow and able to see the grass beneath and open the windows fully. But patience will pay off ...

DIY Jointer from electric planer parts #1: DIY jointer on a low budget

03-23-2015 10:51 PM by OmarN | 3 comments »

For the past year and a half I’ve been doing some woodworking over the weekends. Little by little I’ve brought more and more tools for the shop, and I think the jointer is the next one on the list. So far I’ve made do with wood that’s not perfectly square, by using tricks learned on Izzy Swan’s youtube channel, like this one. Or using a router as a jointer. They’re both fine methods, but ever since I saw “Mathias Wandel’s 12 jointer, Arma...
