Online Scroll Saw Class - Incredibly Fun Adventures in Scroll Sawing #4: Let the Scrolling Begin - Casting on and Casting Off

07-21-2011 02:04 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 69 comments »

Now that everyone has their patterns applied to the wood, we are finally ready to turn on our saws and do some cutting. Since the practice patterns that I have given you have no inside cuts, we are going to learn some practical ways to start and finish our cutting lines. I call this ‘casting on’ and ‘casting off’ the wood. Most people – especially when starting out – just aim for the part of the design that is closest to the edge and start cutting. ...

A question...?

06-25-2010 12:44 PM by degoose | 48 comments »

I have a real dilemma here… I have been blogging about what I do for a while now and have had lots of enquiries about teaching how I do things… Most are from overseas… That makes it non viable…as such.. I mean in an actual school environment.. I am not in the position to run a school although I do have a few possible students here in Caboolture.. so local may be ok.. I will have to check out the requirements for running a school from my shop… etc… what I w...

Fine Woodworking does ezee-feed review #2: Ezee-Feed Gone Wild?

03-28-2008 02:25 AM by Lee A. Jesberger | 40 comments »

Hi everyone; Since a lot of LJ’s have been following the progress of my ezee-feed project, I wanted to share part of my day today. I hope no-one is put off by my posting this or thinks I’m bragging as I’m really in no position to brag, but it was a very special day for me. (I don’t have a lot of those since embarking on this project). I’ve had a number of orders waiting for the first batch of Ezee-Feed units to come out of the factory, since I stopped makin...

The Sawmill #5: silence is broken

05-08-2013 02:30 AM by Monte Pittman | 39 comments »

Probably the most paranoid I have ever been starting an engine. But start it did. Purred like a Kitten. Tracking worked wonderful. Then with breath held, I went through the log. SWEET! I couldn’t take video since I was alone and kind of had my hands full with other things. This was a Beetle Kill Pine log. Look out Andy, I am coming thru!

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #547: How Can I Recommend Something That I Don't Believe In?

12-09-2011 02:05 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 38 comments »

I like to try to participate in several different forums as time permits. Since I work here at home and live in a rather remote area, much of my socialization and networking depends on computers and forums such as these, as well as customer feedback. Lately, with the holidays approaching, I have been asked several times which scroll saw I would recommend. Although it may seem like it would be an easy questions, it isn’t as easy as one would think. Most of you who know me and rea...

A short introduction....

08-27-2010 05:16 AM by degoose | 38 comments »

Well, after a lot of soul searching and many requests… I finally made a small video introduction… Now you will know what my ugly mug looks like and whether I have an accent or not… depends where in the world you hail from… I suppose…This is the first in what I hope will be a longer series featuring Lazy Larry Woodworks…And the music in the background was purely coincidental … Did not even realise it was playing until after I was editing…LOL

How to find and harvest legal burls!

10-13-2009 05:44 PM by OregonBurls | 37 comments »

Hey everyone, It was suggested that I start a discussion on how to find and harvest burls. Please give your input also. I don’t deal with straight grain that often. I cut and sell burls for a living so here is what I know. It is illegal to harvest a burl without permission. of course if it is on your own property you can give yourself permission. What I do is put an ad on Craig’s list saying I want your burls. Most people don’t know what burls are. So you don’t get that many calls....

Exploits collecting "free" wood #6: A better way to haul logs

05-30-2014 08:44 AM by Monte Pittman | 34 comments »

Up till now, I have done my own logging. Spend 5-6 hours and come home with 8-10 logs. It was a struggle to keep enough wood on hand and drying to keep up with orders. About 2 weeks ago I run across a logger who said that he could help. A year ago I tried to find a logger to buy from with no luck. Wednesday he rolled in. They’re 16’ long. Roughly calculated out to 5200 board feet (Doyle scale). My savings, about 70 hours of labor, no wear and tear on equipment...

Show me a sign! (a request by Johnny Srawberry)

02-04-2014 02:15 AM by DocSavage45 | 32 comments »

Is Masonite considered wood? Johnny Strawberry asked me to post the sign I was planning to make when finished. As promised here it is! I’ve been busy refurbishing furniture as I am going back into private practice. In a project page I showed a sofa that I refinished and put in new webbing. I mentioned that I was screwing up ( I think Murphy was in the shop?) attempting to make a sign. The cost for a new sign is $150 which I don’t have extra. Sooooo being the industrious...

Exploits collecting "free" wood #5: This will leave a bruise

03-09-2014 11:46 PM by Monte Pittman | 31 comments »

Let me start by saying that I was having a really good day. I had to replace my pickup and winch for hauling logs. My old pickup and winch however were undersized for what I was doing. I stumbled on to this pickup It’s ugly but the engine was completely overhauled and a heavy duty transmission had been put in it. It runs great and doesn’t even notice that I have a load. I also invested in a much better winch with log tongs. This was a huge improvement. I got this lo...
