Teaching the Building of a Powder Horn with Scrimshaw Engraving at the John Campbell Folk School

1176 days ago by Mark A. DeCou | 4 comments »

Since posting my work on Lumberjocks, I have received a huge number of requests for help and advice on the building of powder horns and doing the scrimshaw artwork to decorate the horn. And, honestly, I can’t really help everyone, as I have to work in the shop myself, so I have accepted an invitation to teach a Powder Horn Building and Scrimshaw Decoration Class at the John Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC. The date will be mid-July in 2012, and it is planned for a five day cla...

French Fry Friday #1: November 5, 2010

1357 days ago by Chris Davis | 2 comments »

I started a theme for each day of the week. Fridays will be “French Fry Friday” and I’ll be talking about some sort of accessories that I build. Why “French Fry Friday”? I always here “would you like fries with that?” Fries are a side item and not part of the main meal. Same thing with the accessories or smaller items that I build. I blog about the big stuff but neglect the smaller stuff. So hear is a chance for often overlooked items to shine. This first one is a bookcase that was part of...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #8: Necessity Breeds Invention

1505 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

It’s funny how innovative we can be when we have to. I grew up with modest means and learned early in life not to waste things and to take care of what I have. Things didn’t come easy for us so we had to use what we had and make it last. I don’t see anything wrong with that. I think it is a good way to think for many reasons. I had a friend who used to tell people he loved to lend me his tools because when he got them back, they were cleaned and looked like new again....

004: cheap, rolling lathe stand #5: dust hood mount solution

1601 days ago by Gary Fixler | 20 comments »

This one’s been in the works for awhile, and by that I mean I’ve pondered it in my head for a few minutes here and there over the last several months. I’ve had the general idea most of that time, but this week I pondered even harder than ever and imagined all of the pieces. I just wanted something simple that could hold one of the two dust hoods I’ve ended up with from Rockler, but I wanted to be able to tilt it forward over the piece, or backward out of the way, an...

What’s happing in the shop for December 10, 2009 . Today I’ll be working mostly on a loft bed. This is a little different design then I normally do, so it may be slow going.
