My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1368: More on DecoArt One Step Crackle Medium

07-25-2014 12:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I can't even begin to tell you all how excited I am about this product. Even though it has been around for a while (I have had some in my arsenal of paints and mediums for years!) I had never taken the time to play around with it and try it out. I have used crackle finishes many times before, but usually I am looking for a more 'rustic' or 'country' look and my go to product was DecoArt Weathered Wood. I love that product, and I had even  made a video showing how I ap...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #780: Cracking Up

08-05-2012 12:29 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

Well, I will start out this morning by saying that I think I am ‘cracking up.’ Maybe it’s because I have been using this crackle paint on my new snowmen, or maybe it is just me, but I am certainly not thinking the way I should be. Yesterday turned out to be a pretty good day. Besides another heavy day of traffic from the site (thank you everyone!) I spent the day painting the little snowmen pieces for the next pattern packet. As I showed yesterday, I am using a product...

Baltic birch plywood tearout #1: In a dovetail jig

03-12-2012 11:51 PM by DouginVa | 5 comments »

Not too long ago I bought a sheet of baltic birch plywood for a armoir project for my daughter (pics to be posted at a later time). I was going to use the plywood for the drawer parts because it was being hailed as splinter free when using it in a dovetail jig. NOT I tried using backer boards in the front and back and still got tearout. If the ends didn’t tear out then the last layer of the ply de-laminated. This made fitting them and glue ups a pain in the ass. I know I coul...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #541: The Waiting Game

12-03-2011 03:16 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

We all have heard the saying “good things take time” and I am discovering how true that is while finishing my latest project. Yesterday I spent the bulk of my time doing the final sanding and applying mineral oil to the many pieces for my calendar project. As you saw from yesterday’s post, there really were a lot of pieces and it was a slow process. I actually made three sets of overlay pieces for the project. Two were of 1/8” maple and one was of 1/8” Ba...

The advantages of the miter sled:1.) Dead-on accuracy. 2.) Can be used as a cross cut sled.3.) It is very cost effective.4.) In a small shop it can save space and possibly costs by eliminating the need for a chop saw or typical miter saw. 5.)

The above is an excerp from the Dedicated Miter Sled...revisited. To learn mo...

Let's Build a Dedicated Dado Sled for the Table Saw

08-15-2010 07:06 PM by Bob Simmons | 6 comments »

The following is an addition to The Apprentice and The Journeyman woodworking video series, Let’s Build. The dedicated dado sled for the table saw is a highly versatile woodworking shop fixture that can expand the woodworking approaches used by many woodworkers. Dado blades are used on the table saw instead of a typical saw blade and the dado blades are often said to be “stacked.” This term implies that the dado blades, chippers, and shims are combined to create a cert...

Let's Build a Drill Press Table

08-01-2010 07:29 PM by Bob Simmons | 14 comments »

The drill press is a terrific tool in the woodworking shop especially when it has a drill press table that conveniently clamps the work, provides a fence for repeatable and accurate cuts, and also offers a safer working environment. The drill press was originally set up for metal working and most tables that come with the drill press are small metal tables. As a result, the metal tables can be rather awkward for use in the woodworking shop. A better solution for the woodworker is to buy...

A Woodworking Drill Press Table

07-13-2010 02:06 AM by Bob Simmons | 7 comments »

The drill press is one of the great woodworking tools for a woodworker to have in the woodworking shop. However, the small metal table that often comes with this tool is rather limiting for woodworking. So, the answer to this limitation is to either buy a drill press table or build a shop-made drill press table. If you choose to purchase the accessory you could have it that very day if you have a woodworking store like Woodcraft or Rockler close by. Then again you could find a drill press tab...
