My entry into the Christmas Ornament Challenge

11-16-2014 04:58 AM by cpine | 4 comments »

This is my entry into the Christmas Ornament Challenge put on by Alan Stratton and Carl Jacobson. This is the third annual challenge and I ma amazed at the beautiful ornaments folks have made! This idea came to me as I have made toys quit a bit in the past and I thought just make a version of an airplane that is smaller. Proportions were determined mostly on the fly and are just approximations of what should look good. Much of what I did I had in my head and I made the first piece then fit ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1438: Six More Sleigh Ornaments

11-05-2014 12:34 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

To begin with, I want to thank you all for the encouraging comments on the new ornaments. It really feels nice to have so many cheerleaders when I am making a new project. It makes all the hard work so much worth it, knowing that people appreciate what I am doing. I spent the bulk of yesterday working on cutting out the remaining six pieces, and I began the finishing  process. The cutting took probably about three hours and then I carefully sanded the pieces.  I was a little co...

The other day I was working from home, I was bummed out because I had been to busy to do much woodworking lately, so I said “Hey, standing desks are supposed to be good for your, and my “joinery bench” is about the right height, why not put my laptop on the bench?!” If I cant woodwork, I can at least be around my tools. One thing leads to another and while on a conference call I get the bug in me to reshape this plane tote. I’ve always disliked the shape of...

Building a wall hanging tool cabinet #6: #6

10-29-2014 04:48 AM by exelectrician | 5 comments »

Got another coat of Deft on and reorganized the interior tool placement Opening the interior panel reveals my mostly metalworking tools, a thin strip jig for the T/Saw, ancient bit brace, etc., With the panel closed which I think I will be using most. I hope to have my every day tools close at hand, I still have about a square foot and a half of space to allocate to about 16 more tools I use all the time. The detail of my modified marking gauge, this puppy won’t roll off my be...

Building a wall hanging tool cabinet #5: Tool cabinet #5:

Put on two coats of Deft semigloss, then made drawer pulls and door handles from recycled ebony piano keys, added an interior baltic birch panel and the most important thing, I got The cabinet mounted on the wall. The moulded edge was masked off and two coats of stain applied prior to gluing the door frame, now that the surrounding parts are finished, the color difference is hardly noticeable, my experiment worked kinda, oh well…Still have a load of decisions to make to figure ou...

Just for Fun... #90: Get a Grip!

10-02-2014 03:08 AM by littlecope | 11 comments »

So the final details have begun on this Mystery Project…As was said at the end of the last blog, the Cherry that was purchased will be the story here, it is to be used for all of the Hardware and Trim…First it had to be squared and Planed… Since this Box is kinda large, I thought it would be a good idea to give it handles on either end, the easier to lift it with… While the block of Cherry was still whole, I thought to try some things…First, a mortice was mark...
