Little Bathroom Remodel - Lumberjocks style #1: Countertop

03-07-2015 05:15 PM by MarkTheFiddler | 6 comments »

Howdy, I’m redoing the tiniest of tiny bathrooms. One entire wall is occupied by the tub. The other wall is taken up by the vanity and one of those gigantic mirrors. In between those small walls is the throne. If you are seated at the throne, there is just enough room to open the door. Yep… Tiny! I started on the countertop simply because I already knew exactly how I wanted it. Here are a few work in progress shots. I have already received some outstandi...

Morris Chair #9: Journey's End, and so it goes.

03-04-2015 02:43 PM by Luddite | 2 comments »

3 March 2015 I’ve finally reached the end of this build. Soon the client will come claim her chairs and off they’ll go for their cushions. Glad but sad at the end of builds, well not for all of them. The “Tea Table” was one I didn’t shed any tears over. My phantom tip of thumb reminds me every time I mention that project. So here’s a wrap up of the Morris Chair build…. Early January. Legs and rails prepped. Bent arm conundrum reso...

Brynn's Desk Build #1: Making the handle for the desk

03-01-2015 09:11 PM by BenhamDesign | 0 comments »

I saved the design and building of the handles for last. Mainly, because I had no Idea what I was going to do for a handle. All I knew, was I wanted it to be made from wood. I searched through all my design books, and all over the web looking for inspiration. I finally came across Darrell Peart’s website in the Green and Green Style. Now this desk is not in the Green and Green style but I liked the simplicity of the handles on his pieces and thought they would work well with my desk. As al...

Morris Chair #8: OK. Don't get lazy now! You're almost there.

02-23-2015 01:03 AM by Luddite | 2 comments »

22 Feb. 2015 Well, the weather changed here. Went from a high of 70 to 81 this past week. I almost broke out in a sweat…..The desert flowers are just opening. The shop cats are very interested in the few little lizards sunning by the shop door. So enough on the weather. This past week seemed like forever. I decided to do some more inlays on the chairs. We went to the gem and mineral show. My first time after 40 years. It was interesting to say the least. I also did the ...

Morris Chair #7: Still wrestling with the wood devils.

02-14-2015 02:11 PM by Luddite | 4 comments »

14 Feb 2015 Much further along the project of no return.Sanding and some oiling with gluing up the base unit and arms. Seems it was a bit anti-climatic when making the arms. Now, that’s OK with me. Even though they do look a little frankenstein like it was a good recovery and taught me some new skills and ideas! I did use some black dyed epoxy to fill in some small gaps but does look good. After sanding and some oiling I’ve assembled the first baseframe. I’m quit...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1496: Just About Finished!

02-12-2015 01:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I spent the day yesterday finishing up my three new patterns as well as taking the photos for the pattern. It filled up most of my day (along with my usual errands and post office trip) and by the time I was finished, it was nearly bed time. I am going to be working on the pattern packets today, and hopefully by later on in the day we will send a newsletter out letting everyone know that the site is fully updated. As usual, it took a bit longer than I expected, but the results I feel wer...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1495: Micro-Cutting

02-11-2015 12:35 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Everybody likes a challenge now and then. I know that when I challenge myself, I not only usually learn something new, but I grow as an artist and designer. If I don't push myself into doing something that is a bit out of my comfort zone, then things start to lose their excitement. Sometimes it is hard to take the time to challenge yourself when you are self-employed. It seems that we are working from deadline to deadline, and it is easy to slip into the habit of taking the path of l...

Finishing Tips #6: Homemade Blotch Control Instructions

02-07-2015 06:04 AM by pjones46 | 4 comments »

Many people have contacted me concerning the specific mixing instructions to make homemade blotch control and specifics as to its application. So here they are. Mixing instructions Glue size is most commonly made of a watered-down, water-based, PVA adhesive. If you do plan to make your own, try something on the order of 10 parts (or a little less) water to one part Gorilla White Wood Glue. The ratios may vary with species and porosity of the wood. Use: Distilled Water (Can be purc...

Morris Chair #6: A call to arms.

02-06-2015 05:26 AM by Luddite | 3 comments »

4 Feb 2015 Thanks to comments and such I finally decided on my approach for making the chair arms. I’d originally had planned on the Stickley method of laminate and cut so as to keep the arm looking bent. Well seems I hit a wall here as my band saw is not up to the job and I was certainly handsaw impaired to make such a cut.I’d floated the idea of a cut and spline method and got some great feedback, thank lcwood. I plan on cutting the board for the arm twice. First an a...
