My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1221: Tiny Dancers

194 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I am running late with my blog this morning. It isn’t because I was being lazy or slept late – actually it was quite the contrary, as I awoke at around 4:30 this morning and starting working – but it is because I was getting a great deal done and didn’t want to stop. But I glanced up at the clock and see that it is after 8:30 now and time for me to report in. So here we go . . . we will do this quickly . . . I had another wonderful and productive day yesterday. I...

Simplicity Wooden Clock #1: The Plan

1621 days ago by CaptainSkully | 5 comments »

Since I can’t afford a bunch of quarter sawn white oak to finish the dining table right now, I thought I’d look for a project that requires less materials. Having just read “Longitude” by Dava Sobel, I’ve been fascinated by wooden clocks. Being a Mechanical Engineer, I also have an affinity for anything with gears. I found woodgears.ca few years ago and have been fascinated by the stuff he makes. I’ve also looked into building some kind of kinetic sculp...

Building a Hanging Hand Tool Cabinet #1: Constructing the core of the cabinet and the doors

745 days ago by Andy Panko | 2 comments »

Earlier this year, I blogged here on LJ about building my Roubo workbench. As mentioned in that blog, prior to building the workbench, I wasn’t much into hand tools. Not because I had anything personal against them, but instead because I was always in the process of building out my power tool collection. My power tool arsenal is effectively complete at this point, and I have since mastered the basic uses and methods of each of those tools. I decided it was time to start doing more w...

Workbench #4: The Finale

119 days ago by john2005 | 24 comments »

I will mostly post pics in this one. By now, if you have followed at all you have gathered that I suck at blogging. A writer I will never be. Some technical data. Final dimensions are 81 1/2” long, 27 1/4” wide and 35 1/5” tall. Species are Walnut and Birch. Pulled off the double through tenons, albeit not perfectly. Nothing a few little wedges couldn’t fix. I feel the bench to be a good reflection of me. A little unusual, not too crazy, has some flaws, functi...

In the light #1: Everybody needs the light

368 days ago by BritBoxmaker | 13 comments »

I’m back in the shop after 44 days absence due to back injury. Check; clear bench, tea, custard creams, music. Now lets make boxes! Well to start some experimentation. The liners for my EZ mitre boxes are Birch ply. The one for the last box, Amazed, was dyed black (spirit based wood dye used in Dance on a Volcano II and Any Colour You Like) and sprayed with satin acrylic spray. I’ve found that the same company that make the clear acrylic spray make this An ebony fi...

Shaker Table - Woodworkers Fighting Cancer #2: My First Mortise

1608 days ago by Kerry Drake | 2 comments »

Started working on the Mortises for the Shaker Table March Guild Build. Pulled out my drill press that I haven’t used sense June and added a auxiliary table to it so I could put on a fence to keep all my mortises in exactly the same position. This is my first time using Birch and it seems fairly hard to me. Was getting a little smoke drilling my 1/4” holes, maybe the drill press is set to too slow a speed? Anyway got all the legs rough Mortised out. I’ve go...

Reception desk #1: Project completed in 2 days! I Needed 4 days of rest after...

840 days ago by Dewshan | 2 comments »

I am working on a reception desk for a local business. Using birch plywood with birch trim. Had everything done over one weekend except for the finish. I like to cut dados first with the router on a festool track and then cut into separate pieces the design features a built in monitor in the top. the easiest way I found to do that was to build around the monitor. 2 small dowels hold the monitor at the right angle. I had to assemble this outside because it is a li...

Entertainment Center and Star Trek Chopper

395 days ago by KomputerMan | 0 comments »

In the summer of 2005 American Chopper was holding a FAN-tasy bike competition. Part of the entry requirements was to make a three minute video and send it to them… so I did… this is that video… The URL for the video is: The Star Trek Chopper Now, you may be wondering why would I post that video here??? There are two reasons, first is because this is the only video I have showing off the whole wall entertainment center I built at my old house. If you look in the ba...

Today is one of my favorite days of the year.

Now how I am going to use that extra hour is hard to decide. There are so many wonderful directions that I am heading in right now that I could choose from a variety of tasks. Yesterday was a very productive and happy day for me. All week I was working on a new ornament ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1122: More Spooky Things

329 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I did accomplish a great deal yesterday, although much of it was the type of stuff that I can’t really show pictures of. I spent most of the morning and part of the afternoon editing the photographs that are going to be included with my Snowflake Damask project for the magazine. I shipped out the project already, and I must say I really hated to see that one go. I probably won’t see it back until sometime next spring. I did get to spend some time to do some painting, although ...
