My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1101: Progress

253 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Yesterday I really remained focused and accomplished even more than I thought I would. After all was said and done, I am finished cutting six of the nine plaques for the next set of patterns. It just goes to show how much work I can accomplish when I set my mind to it! Keith was called by his former job and asked if he would help out and do some part time work for a couple of days. Since he was pretty much caught up with the magazine and even has some new patterns ready for the next sit...

Build a Steam Box

265 days ago by WoodJediNTraining | 8 comments »

Recently I purchased a Steam Bending Kit from Rockler Woodworking and Hardware so I could try out some Steam Bending. Bending wood is something I have never tried before and is out of my comfort zone. I wanted to dive into this area of woodworking and challenge myself as well as learn something new. So of the various forms of wood bending (Laminated Bending, Milled Bending, Steam Bending) I chose steam bending to be my first attempt. The kit I purchased included the reservoir, hose, and so...

How an 11" bowl wound up as a 7" lidded box

266 days ago by TheDane | 7 comments »

Our local turning club has a raffle every month where club members bring in wood, tools, etc. to be raffled off. Last fall, I ‘won’ a large piece of ash that still had the bark on it but was already pretty dry. I Anchor-sealed it, put in the storage room, and checked the M/C every so often. It finally got down to about 9%, so I decided it was time to do something with it. This blank was big enough to net out about an 11” bowl, but when I pulled it off the circle-cuttin...

Turning a Mallet or Maul

282 days ago by WoodJediNTraining | 2 comments »

This week I decided to do some turning. I made 3 mallets on the new lathe. The mallets were made from Spalted Hickory, Walnut & Ash, and Walnut and Red Oak. I made thse mallets to give away to two great friends who have helped me every step of the way while I begin my Turning Journey. Robert Blanford & Richard Morley are New to the YouTube Scene and I strongly recommend you check out their channels and subscribe. Their videos are informative and helpful. And they are two great guys...

Tool thoughts #49: Greetings from beyond the edge of the world

289 days ago by NedB | 5 comments »

Hi gang, I know some of you have thought I fell over the edge of the world… Not at all. I simply haven’t had much blog time, or if I did have time, I didn’t have a lot of progress to report. That is what I’ve been ‘up to’, and who really needed to see yet another set of end grain boards in progress here on LJ’s? the LOML booked me into a show this coming weekend, and I’ve been out in the shop going through all of the necessary ...

293 days ago by WoodJediNTraining | 4 comments »

This modular bookshelf is a great project for beginning woodworkers and you veteran woodworkers as well. Requiring only 2 boards to build and a limited amount of tools, this project can be made in a day or a weekend. the design can be modified by building more cubes or changing the orientation of the unit itself. Add some color and it makes a great display and shelving unit for a kids room. Give it a try.

A Plane Bench #1: Starting of a plane bench

310 days ago by rhett | 0 comments »

Well, I am happy to say I have been making a lot of planes lately, but in doing so, I have found my current bench to be lacking. The obvious answer is to build a bench, and who doesn’t want to build something in the shop. I have been using a large granite plate for sharpening and fettling and I have a bunch of ash, so I’ve decided to combine the two. The design is like most “shop” fixtures I make, design on the fly. By keeping an old camera in the shop, I am able t...
