The Evolution of Design #1: The Making of the Rocker Cradle

06-30-2011 02:41 AM by ScottMorrison | 8 comments »

Soon, I will be releasing a documentary on the evolution, history and the making of a Rocker Cradle. Although I’d love to take credit for the original concept, the idea was actually a bit before my time, circa 1700’s. Hope you enjoy the clip…

Secret handshake of the cutting board club...

06-29-2011 05:15 AM by degoose | 17 comments »

I know that this will no longer be a secret but I figure only members will read this anyway…...All members of the club will be expected to learn this before the next meeting…Edit… I found this on Tyler Tervooren's Advanced Riskology website.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #384: Rolling With the Changes

06-28-2011 01:51 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 13 comments »

I suppose I kinda, sorta got “unstuck” yesterday. As usual, I find that being patient and staying on my own path proved to be the best solution. In the past, I have spent much time and energy trying to “fix things” that I had no control over. This left me with less of both to move ahead and continue on. It was a domino effect that greatly limited what I would accomplish. As difficult as it is for me to do, I have learned to stop trying to fix everything. I am al...

Dewalt Table Saws? #1: DEWALT DW745 10 in. 15 Amp Compact Job Site Table Saw

06-28-2011 06:05 AM by WoodShopGirl5 | 6 comments »

Ive been doing woodworking for almost 3 years now in high school. Ive made a variety of quality projects like chessboards, boxes with cedar lining, clocks. I want to buy a table saw to use at home, but I dont want to spend a lot. I want it to be of decent quality though to do precise cuts. Im looking in a price range of $200-$450. Im thinking about this DEWALT DW745 10” Compact Job Site Table Saw. Its about $370. Would this be worth buying? Is it good quality??

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #383: Decisions, Decisions

06-27-2011 01:52 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It seems to be one of those days where I am a bit unsettled on which direction to go next. I have about a week left for the deadline on the catalog that gets mailed in early September and I am not quite certain what to do next for submissions. Traditionally, this edition of the catalog is the kick-off for new Christmas items for the upcoming holiday season, but it also introduces many Halloween items too. Since it is probably the last of the large mailings to customers prior to Halloween...

Shipping...Why Me?

06-27-2011 03:47 AM by robbinscabin | 22 comments »

As you might know, Hubby and I decided to pool our woodworking talents and start our own business. Being a new teeny, tiny business we decided to use a lot of “free” advertising like brochures, flyers around town, blogs, and Facebook. I have to admit…I was surprised by the results I’ve gotten from both “real world” and online. We’re closing in of 65 Facebook Fans and I’m being stopped in the grocery store to be asked about my latest door. Al...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #382: Meet Fiona - The Halloween Witch (Pretty Scary!)

06-26-2011 12:47 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I had such a good time yesterday finishing up my latest project. Each step and addition I made to it made it look a little better. Building stuff like this is so much fun and I really get a lot of satisfaction out of making these little replicas. The hardest thing for me to do was to be patient and let the glue dry for each step. I knew if I didn’t wait, I would have a mess on my hands. I forced myself to walk away after each piece or set of pieces was glued and try to get busy on ...

My first sale!!!!!!!!!

06-25-2011 07:21 PM by armylogger | 3 comments »

Hey everyone! So today I made my first sell ever as a wood worker. I sold a magic wand that I turned on my lathe. Granted it was only $10 but for me that was a huge accomplishment. Although I do woodworking just because I like to, It is nice to know that my work is good enough ( although no where near as good as all of you) that people are willing to shell out a few dollars because they want it. My wife is set up at a festival where we live selling her embroidery stuff and I thought I would t...

Going to local shows. #38: So Much Timber...

06-24-2011 12:17 AM by degoose | 9 comments »

There was just so much timber of all shapes and sizes at the Sydney Timber and Working with Wood show… and so well priced…...Some of the timber sellers had to go back home and get more…. Lots of native hardwoods at Boutique Timbers. There’s Greg and Adam and some Red Cedar slabs. Now this would make a great dining room table … don’t you think… More great looking slabs…Burl for a coffee table… More burls and a burl base for ...
