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...
I am considering posting my scrollsaw products on the ETSY WEB Site. Hoave any of you experience with this process and have you had success. The whole idea seems simple. Very low cost to post an item – 20 centrs for four months and then 3.5% or the sale if you make one. Looking at the site stats it seems to get a lot of traffic – 1.3 million page views per month and 3 million items sold. This really seems like a NO-BRAINER. YEs if you really want to be successful you have got t...
I built this lamp with some scraps and found wood.I think it looks pretty good. http://youtu.be/HBKoBqctujU
My wife and I built out new house last year and I decided that I would make the stairs. I am a fan of Greene and Greene and admire the Hall Bros. work on staircases so I designed the stairs in the “GnG” style. It’s going to be a big project to work on in evenings and spare time, but I have more time than money – so that works out.The stock is all air dried Black Walnut with Mountain Mahogany accents. Rails run from 1” to 3 1/2 “ thick – I designed the paneling for the wall, but...
Today I found the time to cut the tops and shelves for all three night stands to size as well as glue up all 12 legs. I will try to get into the shop tomorrow afternoon and cut the legs to length and lay out the joint locations. Here are the pictures that I promised in my blog. Cheers
After mounting the slides, I used carpet tape to temporarily attach the drawer fronts. Slides are Centerline 757’s, and mounting is the same as my dresser project here… http://lumberjocks.com/pintodeluxe/blog/34281 -----Drawer fronts installed with 4 screws each.-----Since the drawers are graduated from 6” to 9”, I made a full sized pattern for the largest drawer. Then I marked the size of the other drawers, and used those lines to lay out all drawer pull holes o...
A friend of mine sent me this link this morning. This is a must see.. Amazing!” http://www.odditycentral.com/pics/the-unique-wood-chip-sculptures-of-segei-bobkov.html“
Awhile back, I began posting a series of blogs on the evolution of my router planer. Since that time I’ve actually made three more minor modifications that have had a huge impact on how well this thing works. The first modification: I was always frustrated with how long it took to measure the height at which to set the cross members of the planer using my square in a slotted 2×4. Well, I finally came up with a solution so simple even I was amazed (not the brightest bulb in the p...
Hello Readers! Well here it is, blog number 2 on Shades of Grain and I am already dying to show off a gift I made for my wife… The problem is, it is a Christmas gift, and she has been awfully sneaky as well as trying to guess what it is I might have made for her. The issue is that my posts end up on Facebook and she travails that site as well… so I am trapped for another 21 days, and its my own doing. It is complete, I can say that much and it came out like a dream! I do hav...
