Cherry platform bed #2: Progress

12-07-2010 05:52 AM by TheBarrister | 1 comment »

All the boards have been cut to size, planed, and tenons cut. I cut 2” tenons on the short rail boards – why, I don’t know, other than adding 4” to the length seemed like a good idea at the time. Now that I’ll be cutting the mortises I’ll pare them down to 1.5”. Next, will be measuring and cutting the mortises, and the rabbets for the maple ply inserts. One of the nicer pieces of equipment I have is the Hawk router table – the router table...

Church Clock Project #3: Raising The Roof

02-22-2011 06:02 AM by William | 4 comments »

This first photo today is one I forgot to put in the last blog. I wanted to show the doors. I really am not quite sure of the significance of this particular design on a church door. It is what is on the pattern though and I think it looks nice. I had debated on changing it to something different, maybe a cross. Maybe I will on the next one, but I decided to leave it alone on this one though. The first order of business today was to add supports for the roof. I decided to use much beefier sup...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #53: Closing Shop - BLOG ???

07-06-2013 09:32 PM by jerrells | 5 comments »

A few days ago, I posted and BLOG and sent out a number of personal E-Mails about NO SALES – SHOULD I CLOSE SHOP. Well I got many replies and there were some said, “CLOSE”. However, and for the sake of good sanity a lot of fine family and friends said nice things about my work. I realize that at one time I said, “I fell in love with scroll work”, and I still do. Not sure if some sinus issues, lack of sales, HOT temperature in Texas or the crush of summer chores warped this old brain into sayi...

06-09-2013 07:03 PM by BobLang | 0 comments »

About a year ago, I was excited to see the first copies of the “Great Book of Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture” a compilation of my first, second and fourth books.

I’m happy to say that the book has been printed a second time, and the revised edition has resolved these issues. If you bought the book from me, yo...
