Pine

01-22-2017 07:27 PM by haskins | 2 comments »

as woodworkers we tend to underappreciate woods that are not mahogany or walnut, but I think we should appreciate the unique characteristics that can be found in pine when explored long enough, which is easy to do thanks to its availability. below is a link to a box I made out of a unique piece of fire knot pine. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iH1wFVv5IDA

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1815: It's All in the Details

01-19-2017 01:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

It really feels good to get back to creating. The last month and a half went by so quickly. Between the holidays and the chaos of having my beloved pets ill, it seemed that with a blink of an eye the month of December and now most of January is behind us. I wish I could say that I was more productive. But I spent my time doing what needed to be done and taking the time I needed to deal with these personal things. I know I am working my way to a better place because there are so many idea...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1814: Back to Creating

01-17-2017 01:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

I spent the long weekend working on a new painting pattern set. While I have had this idea in my head for quite a while now, I had to just bring myself to do it. I don't know why I am always so timid about jumping into a new project. There is sometimes a fear that it won't come out like I envisioned it in my head. You would think that after all of these years of designing that I would be over those fears and have more confidence than that. But that isn't always the case. I fi...

Doweling made easy

01-17-2017 12:42 AM by Woodchips39 | 5 comments »

I recently discovered a new and better method for doweling my woodworking projects. I’ve been woodworking for over 50 years building, repairing and designing furniture, cabinets, etc. Over these years I’ve assembled my various projects using nails, screws, glue, mortise & tendon, dowels and biscuit joints. My preferred and most often used method is wood dowels and glue, because of its strength and simplicity. But as most of you know that doweling requires a lot of tedious very careful...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1813: Finished Sloth Pastel Drawing

01-13-2017 01:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Last month, I was thrown a bit off track by life's events. It happens to the best of us. We set our goals.We work to achieve them. And then as we are rolling right along . . . BAM! "Life" gets in the way. It is just part of living. As I get older, I am figuring out that the more resilient and flexible that I am, the easier things are. I have watched family and friends who are perhaps a little bit rigid in their thinking struggle because things aren't quite the same...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1812: Elipse Low-Profile Dust Mask Review

01-12-2017 01:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

(I want to note that I am was in no way compensated for this review. I researched and purchased this mask on my own.) In today's blog post, I am going to talk about something that I think is rather important. It is something that I have been lax on myself, but I made a vow with my woodworking friend (Leldon) that we are going to change things and try to do a bit better about it. What I am referring to is wearing a dust mask when doing our woodworking and cutting wood. Now I a...

Shop stuff #71: Sally's Coffee Table Pt 8

01-10-2017 11:12 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

We are slowly getting there folks. I am prepping and starting the finishing process and finding out how bad this ash is for tear out. It has some wild grain and, like ash is apt to be, stringy. Hang in there, things are about to get interesting on upcoming episodes. View on YouTube

Hoosier restoration #1: A Hoosier Cabinet from the 1920' or 1930's needs some restoration.

01-10-2017 03:55 PM by makeBrooklyn | 2 comments »

In our kitchen is an antique hoosier cabinet in need of some serious restoration. I know the antique purists will say don’t touch it, it’s worth much more with the original everything even if it is falling apart but the cabinet is not an investment so much as a place to keep our corn flakes and bread. The Front of the cabinet and drawers seem to be mostly ok. There is a bit of cracking near the end grain on the top of a couple of the face boards but they seem to be stable now...
