My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1227: Drilling a Vertical Hole into Thin Stock

181 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Oh, my goodness! The last several days have been FULL! The past several days I have put in at least 14-16 hours per day working on my new patterns and packets. Sometime around 9pm last night, I finally finished creating the two packets for the ballerina projects (one packet for painting them and the other for the woodworkers to scroll them out). As much work as it was, it was still enjoyable and I am pleased with the final results. I am eager to get them posted on the site and see how others...

Shop Tips & Tricks #11: MORE than you ever wanted to know about HOLES!

470 days ago by GnarlyErik | 9 comments »

Don’t get too excited – this isn’t an article on porn or sex, but only about making holes in wood! There are times when you need a hole in wood which becomes a challenge, even with the right sort and size bit. Here’s how to deal with some of the more common challenges: 1. Drilling long holes accurately:  A. By far the easiest way is by making a shallow saw kerf in the “Faying Surface”①. These are then joined together by glueing or other means, with the kerfs mirr...

Design #1: Using Google Sketchup.

541 days ago by PASs | 1 comment »

I have used Google SketchUp (free version) for the last few years and have found it to be excellent for designing projects like this. All my crates are designed and costed based on these types of drawings.For this project I tried something new in the design…I added the bolts I will use to put it all together. The picture of the bolts was done by hiding the rest of the crate…it took about 5 seconds to hide the other components. The finished crate will be 11 feet high, 11 feet dee...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #923: Creative Drilling

565 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I kind of had a change in plans yesterday. It was one of those ‘flexibility’ things that I was talking about that happens. But it was a good thing and one of the best parts of being your own boss and being on deadline with the things that you need for everything else means that you can switch things up rather quickly without too much of an issue. Early in the day I received an order for several of the painting kits that we offer. We usually keep a couple of each of the kits ...

CLAMP FOR MY BIESMEYER FENCE UNDER CONSTRUCTION

849 days ago by Metrotek | 1 comment »

Greetings to all once again; I am attaching photos of the clamp for my new Biesmeyer style fence that is under construction. It came out fairly well.The circular pads are adjustable by carriage bolts threaded in to t-nuts to correct any undesired angularity. The ¾” dowel is a plunger that the cam pushes to lock the fence in place. The two piece pad that the dowel pushes will have an elastomer sandwiched between the pieces to provide a spring action so the cam can over clamp it...

The Humble Hand Brace - A Beginner's Guide to Restoring, Buying and Using #6: Part 6 - What to Look for when Buying a Secondhand Brace and more

1044 days ago by Brit | 39 comments »

I thought I’d mix it up a bit in this part of the blog and record a video where I: Discuss what to look for when you pick up a secondhand brace and consider buying it. Mention variations in design and size and why you would use one size over another. Address Racerglen’s question on restoring plated braces. Answer lysdexic’s question as to why the Yankee 2100 represents the pinnacle of brace development. YouTube only allows uploads up to 15 minutes in length (...

Let's Build a Drill Press Table

1452 days ago by Bob Simmons | 14 comments »

The drill press is a terrific tool in the woodworking shop especially when it has a drill press table that conveniently clamps the work, provides a fence for repeatable and accurate cuts, and also offers a safer working environment. The drill press was originally set up for metal working and most tables that come with the drill press are small metal tables. As a result, the metal tables can be rather awkward for use in the woodworking shop. A better solution for the woodworker is to buy...
