ScrollSaw Information and Resources #56: Repurpose your patterns and thinking.

11-11-2013 04:12 PM by jerrells | 2 comments »

On Friday and Saturday I was a vendor at a local craft show. I got many of the usual “off the wall questions” but some of them got me to thinking. I cut many of Shelia Landry’s (and Keith’s) candle tray patterns and several people ask if they were trivets. Well some of them, printed at about 75%, make a great size trivet. So I think I will start offering some like that. Also, on a separate note, I cut some of the 3 dimensional patterns from Sue Mey and Steve Good...

Morris style glider #9: Layout of side assembly

03-24-2015 04:33 PM by Orange008 | 2 comments »

I have not posted in awhile. Turns out completing a fine furniture build of this magnitude and preparing for a first born child to arrive is a very large undertaking. I have continued to cut all the pieces to the final size and planed and sanded them down to thickness. I also continue to work on the joinery. I have dry fitted both side assemblies, the seat assembly and back assembly to make sure everything is lining up correctly. I have purchased a dado blade for my table saw to make th...

Vintage Tools #1: For The Love of Tools!

03-08-2013 12:53 AM by dj1096 | 2 comments »

My love of wood I owe to my Great Uncle Albert. I have a picture when I am about 4 helping him in his shop. He loved wood but was not a very “fine” carpenter. For him you could never build it to sturdy with more wood and of course this was reinforced by more screws. I loved what he exposed me to but decided I wanted to become the best carpenter I could be and that would mean finding a teacher to help me reach that goal. I met a luthier when I was about 12 and was all to happy t...

Weekly Shop Updates #6: July 12, 2015

07-13-2015 08:13 PM by Matthew Morris | 2 comments »

View on YouTube This week I’ve been very productive. I finished installing the sterling silver in the ebony bars. After that I prepared the surfaces of my parts and rounded over the edges of the rails and mortises. Finally, I cut the housed mortises for the rails and stretchers. I also show you my new Lie-Nielsen Number 2 Bench Plane and talk about why I bought it and show you how it preforms. Want to know more?Visit the website http://www.mmwoodstudio.com/Follow the shop on Ins...

Craftsman Style Kitchen Cabinets #1: The Leap

07-03-2012 11:04 PM by Douglas | 2 comments »

First, I have to apologize for this multi-part series not being posted as I went along. I am starting posting this series now that I am 97% done with the whole thing. As a two year long lurker on LJs, I know that if I’d been posting these as I went along, I would have had lots of helpful, timely feedback al the way. I probably would have avoided some mistakes and been more efficient as well. But I didn’t. So why am I posting now? I’m doing so as way to give back to this comm...

Carving Green Wood #1: How much will green carving wood move?

08-08-2013 05:13 PM by Tom Pritchard | 2 comments »

I have been carving for sometime and lately I have been carving some walking sticks. The material I use is fallen sticks found in the forest. The stick is still green, but I still carve. A friend of mine asked me by using a green wood, would the wood warp and crack? I said, well I’m not sure. To me it’s ok if it warps some because it’s only stick. The twisting and warping may improve the looks. Can anyone else share there thoughts about carving green wood and what you might ...

An Old Project, No Longer With Me

01-27-2011 05:43 AM by WhiskeyWaters | 2 comments »

My Mother’s frame & picture present from me and my family – this is about the most well put together wood piece I’ve done. The second in a series, I plan on tweaking the design (oak, danish oil finish, curved verticals with flat horizontals) until I get it right. Then I’m filling the house with framed art and pretending I’m cultured and human. I have an interesting post on www.woodshopcowboy.com planned for this weekend – a question regarding q...

Hi All, I posted some details and pics of my workshop today as well as some projects. I completed my first project recently – a headbaord for our guest bedroom. I’ve made some picture frames and working on a more ‘deluxe’ picture frame now. I’m going to need to jump in and look for some answers soon, the questions are starting to pile up!.
