Church Lectern #2: This is what I was thinking of....

03-26-2008 02:02 PM by pashley | 8 comments »

I did these “sketches” in Bryce to get an idea for proportions. I like what happened here. Problem is, in this sketch, the 4 main posts are 44 inches high, and my real life ones are 33, which is really the best height. However, I made the 3 raised panels to the specs in the drawing – 33” tall by 30” wide – way too big. The thing is way too big, when I tried to visualize it by laying out the posts and panels. Looks like I’ll have to take a good 8 inche...

Palm boxes #2: Re glueing, sanding, and finishing

01-11-2012 10:35 AM by Sanman | 2 comments »

So I had to wait another day after re glueing my palm box back together. After I got the clamps and tape off, this is what I was faced with. I don’t like sanding glue. Ok, one step back, now two steps forward. After Re sanding the lid, several times, I have everything attached and working again. There is still a hair line fracture visible after the clean up. The lid is working much better. It even stops halfway back instead of flopping all the way open. I...

A Dream Endeavor

04-28-2008 11:49 AM by tat2grl | 6 comments »

Greetings All!Haven’t been on in awhile and I’ve missed you all so much! My illness has ventured into unimagined depths of late. I’m seeing a neurologist later this week to find out why my arms occasionally don’t cooperate as well as why I walk like a drunk chicken from time to time. Despite my worst fear (M.S) my attitude is positive and I will not quit or give up. Any and all prayers would be greatly appreciated! Now, onto my topic. My partner, Laurie, is in ...

Trying new woodworking skills #16: A tighter miter

02-10-2014 03:11 AM by BJODay | 13 comments »

It has been 2 months since I worked on the project and posted any progress. In the last entry I was happy with the first mitered top. But over the holidays I would look at it and think, I can make it better, (a tighter miter). The first top was cut at 45.2 degrees. There was a slight gap in the joint. I ran a few test pieces through. I adjusted the miter sled by 0.05 degrees. I’m not kidding. The best tests were at 45.15 degrees. If I was working in pine, the first cuts could have be...

Starting a new woodworking business #1: new business

12-17-2009 04:06 AM by Wayne | 5 comments »

I’ve been toying with the idea of starting my own woodworking business for literally decades. Now, at age 61 I think I finally have the nerve to do it. I don’t have any illusions about what I’m about to do. I don’t want to go “big time”. I just want to sell some of my work and (probably) use the money I make to buy more woodworking toys. I don’t really want to do much on a large scale. Little things like jewelry boxes, keychain bobs, hand carvings and...

Death of a Dado Set

Well, at least it wasn’t me that bought it this time.I made a gavel and striker on commission from some of the Indian Dontknow I use for a lot of my projects (post on that to follow).I had emailed the customer to let them know they could pick it up.I told the wife they would come over the weekend and she said “You should make a case for it.” I told her that would be more cost, and I haven’t done a case before so it would take about, oh, a year for me to get it figured ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1269: Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme . . .

03-17-2014 11:43 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

OK – Now you all have that song going through your head. It was hard not to think of it all the while I was making this project. I don’t know what it is with me and bunnies lately, but I just have a lot of “bunny” ideas that I am thinking about. Maybe it has to do with the time of year me thinking ahead to warmer days. This is a project that I am doing for the June issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine. The theme for the magazine is “summer̶...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1410: Showcase Saturday #1 - Olde Moon Lane Primitives

09-27-2014 12:14 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Many of you know how much I love and respect other designers and hand made items. Be it painted, wood, glass or just about anything in between, I have always been drawn to others who love to create finished projects to sell. One of the (many) wonderful things that I find in my daily travels on the internet and on Facebook is that there certainly is no shortage of talent in our world, and no matter what taste you have or which season you are shopping for, there is a great wealth of styles and ...
