My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #19: It Isn't Finished Until It's "Finished"

1530 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Did you ever see some really beautiful woodworking done only to notice that it wasn’t really ‘finished’? I have been doing woodworking and scroll sawing for a long time and I must admit that finishing is one of my shortcomings. I have been to many shows, too where people have on display the most beautiful, intricate fretwork that must have taken them days to cut, only to have little or no finish on them – or worse yet – a poorly sprayed on finish which has drip...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #5: What's so bad about Monday, anyway?

1545 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Well, here we are. Another weekend under our collective tool belts and starting off a new one. I sit here knowing when I check my Facebook account the usual barrage of grumblings and comments about Monday will be waiting there to greet me. It seems everyone has something negative to say about Monday. I fell like asking people “What did Monday ever do to you anyway?” My friends on Facebook are by now used to my bright and chipper attitude on Monday. I purposely turn it up a ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #2: The maple dresser tray

1548 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

First of all, I want to thank you for all your positive responses. I was able to look at some of the work and it was so impressive! I am trying to put faces with comments and projects so I can get to know everyone well, but as my brain gets older, it somehow takes me longer to associate one with the other. I get so embarrassed when I don’t remember someone. But there has been a lot of water under this bridge and after not traveling and living in the same place for the first thirty so...

Prep for Finishing

1588 days ago by HighRockWoodworking | 2 comments »

the years I had many different methods and idea about how to get a project ready for finishing. Like any other part of woodworking we all have our own way of getting to the finishing stage. Some smooth every part and piece with a drum sander, others use a jointer to clean the face of boards, and there are those that prefer hand tools and use a smoothing plane. The smoothing plane takes some practice and I do enjoy using hand tools on my projects but it is definitely a lot more work. No...

My Pen Making Process

1644 days ago by Karson | 22 comments »

I’ve had a couple of questions as to what I use for finish on my pens. So, I thought I’d post a small process flow. I didn’t do the drilling process because the batteries died, so this is the lathe process. I’ve purchased a couple of new lathe pen making tools, and I got a new Lathe chisel for my birthday. So this is the first time on this lathe. And the first time with these tools, but I’ve used the finish before. I got a new Carbide Lathe tool. I saw t...

Arts & Crafts Dining Room Set #12: Rodel Chair Layout

1675 days ago by CaptainSkully | 4 comments »

So I took a few minutes to draw this up in AutoCAD (sorry I’m not up to speed in SketchUp yet). The only dimension I had to assume were the front-to-back rails that intersect the middle of the chair back. I went with 3” because that’s what looked to scale, and gave room for a proper radius. I could’ve sprung for the $20 full-sized plans, but what’s the fun in that? The reason I drew this out is because the back is defined by a 7 degree angle. I thought it w...
