Taliesin Desk in Cherry #4: Walnut Inlays

11-28-2015 03:45 AM by JimYoung | 1 comment »

I’ve got a few days off for the holidays, and i’ve been able to get a little more work done on my desk project. I’ve been trying to figure out what type and color wood I want for the inlays and accent pieces. After talking with the guys at the local woodcraft, I picked up some trans tint 0 black dye, a chunk of walnut and some walnut veneers. I played around with these (and after dying my hand black, be careful with this stuff), but did not like the pitch black look. A f...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1656: Site Update Time!

11-19-2015 01:22 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

As I write today, I promise I will keep things short. (I know – I always say that!) I want to get going on writing our newsletter that we will be sending out later on today. I also want to get to writing on the instructions for the new ornament pattern that will be available to my scroll saw followers later on today. (SLD519 - Damask Locket Ornament Pattern) (The link will work as soon as I have the pattern available on the site.) I have had such a wonderful and positive response regard...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1654: Creating as Therapy

11-16-2015 01:36 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

“It’s all in a days’ work.” Well . . . two days I guess. I spent the weekend focusing on what some would consider 'work'. After Friday's events, it was very hard for me to be my usual positive self. I know a lot of you feel the same. How does one cope with the senseless of what had occurred? I just don't understand it. I decided that the best way for me to deal with myself and my own demons was to try to re-focus on something positive. The pa...

the never ending organinzing and improvements #2: I SEE IT BOARD. THE ORGANIZATION TOOL.

10-29-2015 02:17 PM by kenthemadcarpenter | 0 comments »

Part of every workshop success is being organized and having templates on hand to trace and cut out, my shop is no different, for the longest time I kept my templates stuffed in a box, as of lately I have been getting request for shelves, rather than dig out these templates I created the “I SEE IT BOARD” this way a person can see the options that are available, it will be easier for me as well because I will be able to grab what I need and when I am done I can easily put it back ...

Taliesin Desk in Cherry #3: Legs and Grill Work

10-21-2015 02:43 AM by JimYoung | 3 comments »

We’ll it’s been a while since I updated my desk build blog. I had 40 mortises to square up on the legs, so I’ve taken the “15 minute” approach to this build. Whenever I had a little spare time I would knock out another mortise. With all of the mortises done, it was on to the tenons. I bought a Rockler heavy duty tenon jigs a while back, and tried it once with mixed results. Prior to that I have been using a home made jig for my router that holds pieces flat...

woodworking for money #1: first big commision

09-24-2015 05:05 PM by Gwjames | 15 comments »

So I started talking about this table over in the forum and decided maybe it should be a blog instead. So I have been trying to put my limited wood working knowledge to good use and start trying to sell things I build, or sell items that have not been built yet. I tried everything, posting on craigslist, posting to bookface friends and family, and then on a local for sale page on the bookface, and once I put tables on the for sale page I started getting emails like crazy. Everyone wanted a cu...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1626: Update Day

09-24-2015 10:28 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

I got up early this morning and it is still dark two hours later. It is odd how quickly the days get shorter once a certain point is reached. It is getting dark much sooner as well, and I suspect that is why I wound up going to bed shortly after 10pm my time. It just seemed like my day was done. I love these cool, autumn mornings. Even though we are only a day into autumn, it is nice to be able to say that. I sat on the deck yesterday with the cats for a bit, just taking in the warm sun ...

Why buy it when you can make it! #40: Silverware/Cutlery Tray [Part 1] - Clamps - Got em? Use em!

09-19-2015 09:53 PM by paxorion | 1 comment »

After finishing my workbench, I realized that I had no projects in progress. I mentioned this to my wife, and said I would finally get to the tea box she requested. As expected, she asked me to re-order my priority list and work on a more “urgent” project, a new silverware/cutlery tray. Ours has seen better days, with a few partitions broken for some time now. After taking some measurements and working out “requirements”, I set to work today. I picked several ch...
