I never would have guessed that cutting 4 mortises would take all afternoon. Because the mortises are angled to match the wedges, the fitting process takes a little longer than usual. I cut the first one by hand, then decided to cut the rest at the mortiser. Cutting past the layout line on the shoulder side of the mortise will ensure the joint pulls tight. Keys installed. A few taps on the wedges and the shoulders draw up tight. The keys were cut on the bandsaw. When the k...

Today was a very productive day. I had a some time to ruff turn my big black walnut blank and put it on the shelve to dry completely. There also was some time to finish my walnut root bowl and the small cherry bowl. I’m still improving my skill set with every bowl that’s finish.

I’m much more comfortable with the different speed of the lathe and ...

Well, been thinking about it and now I think it is time to take that first step. Pimping woodworking skills out that is. I have had experience owning and running my own business as a Truck Driver and my parents have experience owning and operating a multi county Ambulance service so I think I have the knowledge that is needed to start a new venture like this. I found a book at Goodwill specifically for making money with woodworking that I read and it helped supercharge my desire to follow ...
So I have been Scrolling for about a year now and, I think, getting better at it all the time. First of all reading and watching all the tutorials I can find. Thanks a lot to Shelia Landry and Steve Good for their part in that. Then lots of practice – LOTS. As all of this comes to play, learning how to get the blade to go where I want it to, how to select the correct blade for the project, how to select the correct wood and then how to finish it to show off the work. It seems like an...
