My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1482: Better Late than Never

01-24-2015 02:57 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

I am checking in a little late today because yesterday the day got away from me and I was doing the final editing and proofreading on my SLD489 Layered Heart Damask Box with Monogram pattern. I actually finished everything up early this morning, and I sent all the orders out from last night for the patterns. If you ordered one and I missed you, please let me know and I will get it to you right away. :)We finished our site update yesterday. And in addition to the pattern for the above desig...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1478: Some Assembly Required

01-19-2015 12:36 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I can't believe another weekend has passed by already! It seems like the time is just flying by and here we are already halfway finished with January. That is probably good news for those of you who don't like winter. As I write this morning, there are gusts of wind blowing outside as well as sporadic rain. Spring is right around the corner. I took an unscheduled day Saturday to travel up the valley with Keith. He had purchased something from Kajiji and was going to meet the sell...

Working title - LLB #8: Closing Time

12-20-2014 12:40 PM by BritBoxmaker | 6 comments »

Just a short blog as there’s not much left to do. I need to cut the slots to accept the bottom. The end stop is cunningly sized so that the sides with legs don’t foul it. Slot 1.6 mm deep. Final tape up ready for gluing and glued up (PVA) with the top taped on (but obviously not glued) to maintain the box shape whilst drying. Next time you see it will be when I’ve taken the top edges down a bit with 600 grit (they are razor sharp at the moment...

Working title - LLB #7: So much to do ...

12-14-2014 06:43 PM by BritBoxmaker | 5 comments »

... so little time. Why do weekdays crawl by and weekends go before you know it. Well Somethingbrownwood is not going to do for the bottom of this box. A phrase I’m sure Shipwright is well aware of I don’t want to ‘spoil the ship for a ha’peth of tar’. I have a little Mondo left. This I re-sawed into four 2 mm slices. On the table saw, you don’t want to know. I made veneers of this piece( outside bottom of the box), a filler and some 1.5 mm...

Working title - LLB #6: Rationalise

12-13-2014 06:34 PM by BritBoxmaker | 7 comments »

This thing is getting covered in more and more layers of masking tape. It won’t do. So I’ve decided to take it apart, gradually in order to glue the inner/outer skins and the legs together. Again a gradual process, using viscous Cyanoacrylate. Until all sides were complete I minimally taped these together and took apart the top, perching the pieces on the whole. and I’ve decided to try repairing the central piece of the lid ...

Working title - LLB #5: A momentary lapse of reason

12-13-2014 01:40 PM by BritBoxmaker | 5 comments »

Happened during this, more later First thing to do is make up some legs. Padauk, 9 mm square. Machined to shape on the router table The leg proper (part that is visible for its whole length) is 3 mm wide and 7 mm deep. The flange on the back is 9 mm wide x 2 mm deep. A quick try in the box sides Now the flange only goes about halfway up the box sides, I don’t want it appearing at the top and ruining the lines.This means I need to route slots to tak...

Working title - LLB #4: Old red eyes is back.

12-08-2014 07:43 PM by BritBoxmaker | 3 comments »

Short blog today. Not much shop time. Cut the 60 degree angles on the sides of the box inner. and fitted them into the outer shell. Still nothing glued at this stage as a lot of work to be done on the inner (Padauk) liner before I can even attempt this. First I need to mark the inside to register the position on the inner where the legs will pass through the outer Remove the masking tape from one leg side and remove the Sycamore spacer. Its then a simple matt...
