My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #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 Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #18: The Road Trip Did Wonders! I Can't Wait to Get Moving!

06-21-2010 12:54 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Well, after taking the day on Saturday and trying to get some random things around here done on Sunday, its back to some full force work for me. The road trip was really nice. We couldn’t have picked a better day. It was bright and sunny and there was one point in the afternoon where we actually had to put the top up on the car because it was so warm. That’s highly unusual for Nova Scotia and it was one of the hottest days I can remember in the six years I have been here. P...

Horned Owl Carving #1: Working the blank, getting a feel for the tools

01-11-2010 07:05 AM by David Craig | 5 comments »

Interesting story on how I ended up at lumberjocks. I told it once but I will give it a brief retelling at it is somewhat relevant to the current project I am working on. I won a dremel a couple months ago through facebook. One of the fellow “fans” of the Dremel facebook community is a talented carver named Jordan Straker. Jordan and I exchanged a few messages and he encouraged me to join this community (God bless you Jordan for doing so!). I am a big fan of Jordan and I let hi...

Layered epoxy inlay #1: The idea and the start

12-31-2011 06:44 AM by JoeyG | 15 comments »

Here I go again. I have had a idea for a while. It began with my first wood inlay. I wanted to do more. I wanted more colors, more this, more that. So I searched for idea’s and found people who did inlays on gourds. So I looked and read, and said, “Hey, I can do that in wood.” After doing a few of these I still wanted more. More color, etc.. So for Christmas I get this fancy new Dremel with all the attachments, and I say to myself “Now I can do more.” ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1010: Something to Crow About!

04-14-2013 11:59 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

No job should be this much fun. I know I have said it before, and that some of you may think that I am exaggerating, but I find if anything, I tone it down. This past week and a half should be proof of that. In the last week and a half, I drew up seven new candle trays as well as a new project for the August issue of Creative Woodworks and Crafts magazine and pretty much got all the prototypes finished. I still have one more tray that I didn’t even really show you yet, but I wil...

Checkerboard Project #5: Custom Carved Checkers Completed!

12-05-2012 04:23 AM by Retsof | 3 comments »

After several hours of carving with my Dremel tool over the last two days, I completed the custom checkers for this project. This was my first attempt at wood carving and with 48 sides to carve, it was a bit tedious, but not too difficult. My skills improved a good deal by day two and I took some extra time to go back over the first day’s checkers and make sure they were all pretty consistent. I took some video of the carving process to post as a separate blog entry once I have...

Adventures in Tool Making #1: A Pair of Tenon Saws from a Disston Miter Saw - Cutting the Saw Plate

05-13-2013 02:27 PM by grfrazee | 5 comments »

I recently came back from spending a couple months in Kansas for work. On one of my weekend trips to an antique store, I found this lonely, broken miter saw tucked in a dark corner. You can see the broke handle, but you can’t see the horrendous rust on the back side. For $10, I decided to give it a new home. Of course, if the saw knew what I was planning to do to it, it might not have agreed to follow me out of the store. Since I already have a Disston miter very similar to t...

Wine Rack Expedition #6: Glue ups and some other stuff

04-01-2009 06:45 AM by Demowen | 5 comments »

Well Folks, it’s been a super-productive day for me (as productive as a full time student with a part time job, a ministry, a woodworking hobby and a girlfriend can be :) ). Before I glued up the rails to the legs I had to take care of some cosmetic details. I measured 1” from every outer bottom corner of the legs and up 3” in the opposing side. I drew a line to connect these marks on the edges and cut them out on the band saw for the foot detail. As you can see, the b...

Carvings done by mixing powertools and woodcarving irons. #1: Where no flowers grow during winter..

02-16-2014 12:59 PM by koraile | 6 comments »

Crossing that invisible line from using traditional handtools to using powertools was a hard stepp for me. Growing up, my grandfather, my dad and uncels would get strikt if they ever saw sandpaper on the workbench vile carving. Bottom stamping or patterning ,and the use of sandpaper on carvings was considered something used by amatuers or someone trying to hide their errors, In the old woodcarving School we where not alowed to have sandpaper on the workbench at all, we got told to remove i...
