trying to re-invent the top

05-24-2014 01:51 PM by Jim Sellers | 6 comments »

You can’t appreciate this toy unless you see it in action. I hope the link works. It’s my first ever youtube video and the first video ever shot on my iphone. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JclY0Ho9dC8&feature=youtu.be I started tinkering and playing with this idea a couple of years ago and just decided to take it back off the shelf. The kids might not want to put their video games down long enough to try and master this simple toy but I would set the age range from 6 &#...

Driftwood Fish #1: Bass almost completed

05-01-2014 06:35 PM by piddlinchic | 19 comments »

My first “real” carving and first time ever posting the process of a piece of work, so please just have patience with me :) The fish began with a piece of driftwood I found in the creek behind my house. It already had a nice curve to it, was fairly solid and had a natural “mouth” which I immediately thought would make a pretty cool fish. (sorry I don’t have a pic of the driftwood before I began sanding it some, I just wanted to see what it look...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #62: Where to fine the old, olde scrollsaw patterns

03-30-2014 04:34 PM by jerrells | 1 comment »

As I have been involved in scrolling for about four year plus my interest has become the older, more detailed, intricate patterns. Like the ones produced, to my knowledge, around the turn of the century. Some of my present and a lot of my new projects will focus on these types of patterns. I have done some extensive research as to where to find these types of patterns. Yes I am well aware the several web sites have some of what I am talking about. However paying $15 for a single pattern vs...

Projects, the backstories #4: Cane in mystery red wood

03-25-2014 09:45 PM by PASs | 3 comments »

I use a lot of dunnage for my projects.It’s from freight shipped out of India and is usually some type of exhotic hardwood.Some pieces are a reddish hardwood. It has a very fine grain, is VERY hard, and every piece has cracks running down it.I have decided to only make mallets and other hard type things out of it.But I’d already cut a cane blank and decided to go on and make the cane. Besides I wanted to see how it turned out. I’d turned the blank to round a few weeks ago...

Projects, the backstories #3: Open form in oak, day 2, oops day 1 (part deaux) and day 2

03-25-2014 08:41 PM by PASs | 6 comments »

I didn’t want the first entry to be too long, it was War and Peace just for day 1. So, here’s the rest of day 1 followed by day 2.It’s really just hollowing mostly…hollowing, hollowing, and more hollowing.I stopped the first entry at 9:06 p.m. at about 2 inches depth.9:14 p.m. It’s not brain surgery…a long handled, a study tool rest, wood hitting the cutter head, me hanging on the back of the handle. Down to 4 inches in 8 minutes. The Sovereign can r...

Projects, the backstories #2: Open form in oak, day 1

03-25-2014 06:31 PM by PASs | 7 comments »

Seth (my daughter’s boyfriend) does yard work for spending money and got some oak logs for me (about 4,000 pounds worth).I decided to try an open form with a (small) piece of it.Since it was green it was heavier than I wanted to try lifting onto the lathe. Besides that’s why I have a chain hoist and trolley. Seth was doing the hoisting…lots of pulling to bring it up…but he’s young. Initial mount to the headstock is a 4” faceplate, the biggest I’...

Stickley #369 Morris Chair #6: Leather Upholstery

03-24-2014 11:12 PM by pintodeluxe | 21 comments »

I took a leather sewing class to learn how to make the Morris chair cushions. -----The seat cushion and the ottoman cushion require web frames. Here I am milling the half-lap components for the web frames. -----Web frame assemblies are glued together. The seat frame should be sized 1/4” smaller in all directions than the opening in your chair, to allow room for the leather and two layers of batting.-----Corner blocks are added to the large seat cushion for additional strength. -----I...
