Just for fun - Horned Owl

1245 days ago by David Craig | 18 comments »

Recently, I read a blog by littlecope entitled Make Something!. Apparently Mike, on occasion, does something just for the spirit of it, just to have fun (whatever that is). It has been a hectic week and haven’t had much shop time, but I did find a few hours in the middle of the week in which I could do a little something. So I thought I might see what this “Fun” thing was all about. I have a vast collection of scraps, parts of branches of trees, broken furniture, basicall...

Entertainment Unit #1: Design

1271 days ago by agianni | 0 comments »

A few weeks back, my sister-in-law asked if I would build then an entertainment unit. Currently they have shelves below their wall-mounted flat-panel, but their little one is just starting to walk, and keeping components on the shelves is no longer a reasonable option. The space is very shallow (about 12”) due to an archway on the adjoining wall and moderately wide (about 36”). They just couldn’t find anything that would work, even if they were willing to spend big bucks. So...

Shop Tool Cabinet #2: Construction Begins!

1286 days ago by Orion Woods | 4 comments »

So Thursday morning I finished up with a last coat of paint on the chairs and headed off to get my supplies. I had planned on Birch or Pine but was leaning towards pine as it’s $7 a sheet cheaper and on a budget project like mine every dollar counts! When I got to the store I had changed position and figured I’d use the Birch as I had some left over from another project that I could use for drawers etc. Well there was sadly only one piece of it on the shelf so I resigned myself to...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #218: Making Lemonade from a Snowflake

1294 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

It is amazing to me just how much difference the way you look at something can make. Looking at something with a different attitude and perspective can magically change something from unpleasant or distasteful to something that is fun and exciting. Physically, nothing at all has really changed. Only the way we look at it. This is an incredible power that we all have within ourselves. It costs nothing, takes none of our time and all we need to do is consciously apply it and it can make al...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #210: Celtic Candle Tray

1302 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be a fine day. It felt great to be able to get back to the scroll saw and make something again. I know it was only a couple of weeks, but it seemed like ages since I had cut and getting back to it was very rewarding and relaxing. I cut out the next candle tray in the series. I still need to cut the charms out today and then I will be able to photograph it properly, but I at least took a couple of snapshots of it so I could show it here. I choose a Celtic design a...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #160: Back From the Shop

1352 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday was another day that just seemed to go by too quickly. I was fortunate that the rain seemed to let up for the most part for the day so that driving was not so treacherous. We still needed to be cautious though because many of the roads were flooded. About half a kilometer down our own street (right where the river bends) the river was actually so high that it bled into the street and flowed across it. Fortunately it was only a couple of inches deep, but it was a quick reminder th...

Cajon drum, for my son the drummer boy

1357 days ago by PaBull | 19 comments »

This is for my son. He was adopted at age 19, came home the year before that. He is the bio-sister of one of our daughters. He had 2nd grade education when he came home. In the morning he works for me at the nursery and in the afternoon and evening my wife home-schools him to get his high-school diploma. It is a tough road for a special needs child to do this at later age. We love him a lot. He will be turning 21 this month. So for his birthday I was thinking about making him a drum. A Caj...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #155: Time to Take a Stand

1357 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am writing this blog last night because we decided to high tail it to Halifax in the morning for probably our last trip into the city before winter hits. Today, we went to a new wood place that our friend Bernie recommended today and got some incredibly low priced and high quality hard woods. Among our finds were some nice ash at $2.00 per board foot, some flaming birch for $3.00 per board foot and some curly maple which was also only $3.00 per board foot. We didn’t get a lot bec...
