Santa's helpers and other elves.

12-15-2017 11:28 AM by EricTwice | 1 comment »

Things have gotten crazy here, but this is normal for the Christmas season. First we get the big projects that must be done before the holiday entertainment happens. (2 bathrooms, 5 kitchen modifications, 2 dining-room tables and repair a set of chairs) Next we have the special Christmas gifts, (a cane, a walking stick, a doll bed, 2 closets modified, a custom bench seat, and they keep coming in) Then there are the things my wife has asked me to make, (spoons, cutting boards, pen and...

Making the Penrose Sliding Trivet

12-03-2017 04:38 PM by Woodbutchery | 4 comments »

Lazyman posted his sliding trivets a few years back, and after a lot of banging around, I Put together one of these, but there were a few problems with my design; the pieces tended to want to come apart, and I wanted something to hold the trivet together so that you couldn’t easily slide it apart. After a little knocking around and a suggestion from my mother, I came up with the item below. So. Pieces are milled to 3/8” thickness and 3/4” width. I use “se...

Scofield Study Bible Box Christmas Gift #2: Preparing The Stock

11-29-2016 03:13 PM by Zabinsky | 1 comment »

Since I just so happen to have the exact bible on hand that I plan to give, I took some quick measurements and estimated the box size. The final dimensions should be 10” long by 7” wide and 2 3/4” tall. I started out by cutting down the lumber to approximately 11” strips and ripped them to 3” long. The picture in the previous posting was what I started with and the picture below is the near end result of the pieces. My planer has brand new blades in it and ...

Scofield Study Bible Box Christmas Gift #1: Starting Out

11-29-2016 02:47 PM by Zabinsky | 1 comment »

Being my first project on here and my woodworking skills are rather limited, bare with me as I post bits and pieces and try to make sense of it for you all. Christmas is coming upon us quickly and as usual, I am in a rush to figure out gifts for the family. Being a holiday that society forgot the real meaning of… my wife and I decided to give the family a Scofield Study Bible to help reinstate the true purpose of the day. Of course, no worthy book is complete without a proper cont...

11-03-2016 05:48 PM by GrumpyCub | 3 comments »

His wife wants a set of tiered shelves that are round, allowing a 360 degree display of her collection. Requirements for the project are as follows: 1. 60” Tall2. 4 Circular Shelves3. General shape is consistent with a Christmas Tree4. Must break...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1779: "Scary Faces"

09-21-2016 12:46 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

As I continue my work as a designer, I also continue to learn and grow. I like to think that each project I do – no matter how large or small – teaches me 'something'. I am often torn between working on my own projects and doing projects from other designers that I admire. Every day as I check my Facebook account and other social media venues I see more and more projects that I want to try. These come in many different types of media – woodworking, painting and ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1778: A Wild and Crazy Start to the Week

09-19-2016 01:45 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

OK – so it hasn't been that 'wild and crazy'. But it is barely 10am here and I feel as if I have put in nearly a full day already. All my mail is organized, my desk is clean, and the mail is just about ready to go out the door. It is a good start to the week. I also already have been to the gym this morning. While I am not one of those people who feels the need to report every time I go to the gym, I find that today it was somewhat significant. I have been playing '...
