It's Beginning to look at lot like Christmas #1: A bandsaw box inspiration

07-25-2011 09:18 PM by Kerry Drake | 3 comments »

A couple nights ago I was laying in bed thinking about a particularly nice pine glue up cut off I had sitting out in the shop. Every time I’ve gone out there recently, it catches my eye. I had a rare burst of creative inspiration and a thought came to me on what I could with it. My wife loves snow men, so this should be something she will like. I am planing to make 3 drawers, if I was braver I would cut the drawers out, tape them back in place, and turn it so that it w...

I am searching for Nativity scroll saw patterns. Now I have looked in all the traditional places; Shelia Landry, The Winfield Collection, Berry Basket and I have all of these. I want them to be table top and traditional in design. This is an ongoing project I have started and not just for this season. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The utensil making process #2: Sanding The Spoon

03-17-2009 05:50 AM by osageman | 3 comments »

I don’t know if I need a disclaimer or not on safety. So I will just add that, you need to take precaution when sanding and working around power equipment. Just be safe and know your tools… Now you have your pattern cut out, and you are ready to start sanding the shape. There is really no easy way to explain the process with out photos or videos. I will leave it up to you to read between the lines, (so to speak) There is 3 parts to a wooden utensil, 1.) the bowl. 2.) the nec...

A book Shelf Like No Other - A Floating Book with a Hidden Compartment

11-30-2015 05:22 AM by Mike | 3 comments »

I was in need of a little shelf to hold an alarm clock in my guest room. I decided to make one out of an old book. The difference between this and other floating books that are out there is that this one has a hidden compartment built inside! I’ve included the build video if you’re interested in making one yourself. View on YouTube

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #38: New Mall to Sell my Scrollsaw items.

07-27-2012 12:42 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

I have had my scrollsaw items in a small shop for about a year. Done OK however not great. As I have posted I have considered other venues but till yesterday had not chosen one. Yesterday I made verbal commitment to take space in a “MALL” craft store. This location was a grocery store until converted into a craft mall. All kinds of product from old antiques to new hand made items. Based on the research I did this mall is very well traveled. I first found out about it from a fri...

Taliesin Desk in Cherry #8: Topping it off

12-27-2015 04:57 PM by JimYoung | 3 comments »

I have some time off for the holidays, so I’ve got the top glued up. This took three days to accomplish. I put together a long ripping jig to to get a straight edge on all of the boards. I had an old oak shelf with a machined edge on it, and I used a couple of scrap blocks screwed to the board. I could then screw through the blocks into the edge of the boards to hold them while I ripped a straight edge on them. I made sure to have the top up on one edge and down when cutting the ot...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #15: Consignments Stores - Are They Worth It?

10-08-2011 02:53 AM by jerrells | 3 comments »

I have been scrolling for some time and have sold by word of mouth and at a few Arts & Craft shows. All with a fair amount of success. Now I have found an opportunity to be involved in a Consignment Store to sell my product. However, my question is, are these worth the effort. The arrangement for this consignment store is the rent/least space by the shelf. You pay $20 per month for a shelf that is three foot wide and about 18 inches deep. All of the basic fixture items are provided lik...
