Making Carbide Tool Bar Handles

02-02-2013 09:04 PM by socrbent | 2 comments »

In the spirit of giving back to all you LJ’s who have inspired and informed me, here is an attempt to share the making of 4 tool bar handles. My wife gave me four 1/2” tool bars and 12 carbide cutters for Christmas from my wish list. Wanted to try some Easy Wood carbide type tools at a reasonable price level. To hold the cost down my wish list specified bars and cutters from Big Guy Productions and then turn my own handles for them. Step 1 – Turn HandlesThe project star...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1120: Variations on the New Halloween Ornaments

09-02-2013 11:28 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Those of you who read daily know that I like to make different versions of projects. I talk many people who prefer different techniques and I try to accommodate as many as I can. Besides – I really like the variety and playing around with seeing the different ways to finish projects. Last week I introduced some new ornaments for Halloween. One set was of Halloween keys, with the key tops being made of cute characters. But some people didn’t care for the key theme, so I made...

Wow, how time flies by when you get frustrated with a project and set it aside. It’s over a year since I started this blog series and it’s time to finish my project and close this chapter of the blog.

Picture Frames #2: progress

09-22-2010 09:02 PM by Camper | 2 comments »

I had a little more time to work on the picture frames. Now cut to final dimensions and mitered. The pictures are below. I think the miters turned out pretty decent (better than I expected for a first timer). I used a miter cutting jig by Niki which is fairly easy to make. I had my suspicions that the jig was not built well but proved myself wrong.
