I missed posting yesterday because I didn’t really feel that I had anything unusual or interesting to talk about . Things here have been really busy and I find that some days I just don’t have a lot of new information to share. I am coming up on four years of writing here now (I had to check – I thought it was only three!) and while I have many, many new readers, I sometimes feel that I am being redundant when I tell of the ‘routine’ things that I did on the p...
Good day to you all. It had come to my attention that the links for many of the videos in my Lumberjocks online scroll saw class entries were missing. I have had several emails sent from those who wanted to see the videos that went along with the class lessons. They are all short cuts, but many found them very helpful to them when just beginning. I spent this morning re-linking them and now everything should be alright. The class link is here: http://lumberjocks.com/scrollgirl/blo...
The clean up is supposed to be done this week. It’s a black ugly mess. I am very happy that the concrete pad is still in very good shape. In my attached garage, I am thrilled to say that the 220 circuits are alive and the equipment all started perfectly. Got a couple more pieces of equipment to get, but it’s going in the right direction. Of course the world didn’t come to a stop waiting for me to be ready. I have been getting calls to get logs. These are so...
I woke up this morning to bright sunshine. I think it is a good indication as to how the day will be. I have so many ‘irons on the fire’ that I need to watch myself so that I can keep on a good track and accomplish as much as I can. So many times if I have a lot on the go, I get overwhelmed and find myself spinning my wheels in place trying to decide which direction to head first. But mapping out a plan and keeping my thoughts organized is truly necessary for me to keep making...
I had a good and busy weekend. Even though we had some (more) snow delivered to our area, I made good use of my time indoors and made headway on my new designs and spent a couple of hours each night doing some needlework. That (to me!) was a great weekend. There was one incident that rather bothered me though, and I am not sure why, but I need to vent about it here. Those of you who read on a regular basis know that I don’t usually use my blog here to gripe about things. I like to...
The mitre saw is setup, The table saw is assembled and ready to fire The dust collector is prepared for action Although the Dewalt mitre saw is 120 volt, the table saw and dust collector are 220. I have all the wiring run with the exception of making the final connection to the breakers. Primarily because I can’t find the right screwdriver at home and chose not to make a special trip into town for the screwdriver. Most of those tools were in the shop. I did manage ...
I have the heater going in my attached garage trying to bring it to a manageable level. We’re at -8F outside. Trying to get it up to 55-60 range. I don’t want to sound like a whimp, but it is just a lot nicer to work in. Today I want to get my 220 circuits run and start setting up the machines. I will show pictures of the machines as I get set up. I am setting up temporarily in my attached garage. It’s 20×20. I know many of you would love that much space. I just need to...
I had a good day yesterday, working on a couple of different things at once. I have several new designs that I have been thinking about and trying to figure out which one to do first is sometimes the most difficult part of the process. I find myself going round and round about each one and it finally gets to a point where I realize it and just stop and pick one and jump in and draw. That usually gets things moving in a positive direction. The designs that I have been thinking about are no...
Yesterday turned out to be what I would call an ‘organizational day’. Besides the normal chores around the house, I cleaned up my computer files and did some planning on the next projects. Our next batch of lumber had arrived at Bernie’s, so Keith took the trip to Digby and spent the morning cutting it into 10×10 pieces so we could continue to work on the second half of our kit order this weekend. I am working on my next magazine articles and projects this weekend,...
Just when I thought that my hundreds of little summertime bunnies would bring with them the warmer weather, I awoke this morning to another four inch or so blanket of snow. Perhaps they are ‘snow bunnies’! It is pretty, though. And the sun is shining brightly and it looks quite clean and beautiful again, so I don’t think I really mind. After all, if I DID mind it, would it even matter? Living in Nova Scotia during the latter part of February usually means that it wi...
