Toy Table Side Notes

207 days ago by Siegel_KenEvil | 0 comments »

I needed better lighting for my varnish application for the “Toy Table” build. The clamp on my old halogen lamp didn’t work very well in many situations. By drilling a hole at the end if a bar clamp, I was able to replace the original clamp with a bar clamp. It worked great. You may notice my Christmas tree in the background of some of the pictures from the “Toy Table” build. It’s decorated with ten 1.5” plasma balls. These are 12V devices int...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1200: Exploring New Horizons

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

It rained most of the day yesterday and also throughout the night, melting the six or so inches of snow we had on the ground and leaving an icy mess. The temperature seems to be hovering just above zero, which means that any precipitation will come in the form of ice or cold, and muddy rain. Yuckky. There is a chance of some snow on Tuesday and perhaps Wednesday as well. I hope we get at least a dusting, as it just doesn’t seem like Christmas without snow. I am coming to the end...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1198: Moving Right Along

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

There are times such as this when I wish I never had to sleep. I find myself getting so wrapped up in my project that the days seem to pass at the blink of an eye. Yesterday was just like that. I sat at the table in the late morning and began once again working on my painting. Besides writing my blog here, there were some every day chores that I had to finish before I could settle in. (Showering, getting dressed, answering emails, etc.) and I found myself wondering why doing all this s...

Remove a dent from yor wood project

222 days ago by captferd | 9 comments »

Sometimes you end up with a little dent and its always in the spot it will show the most. There are several ways to get rid of them, but here is the way I do it the most. I’ve actually tried sanding them flat only to end up with a bump. This is were the dented wood is still there and the finishing process caused it to raise. So its sometimes beneficial to address a dent and fix it unless you want an eyesore that you’ll see every time you look at your project. http://youtu.be/ek...

Education and torment #1: Canary wood Box

224 days ago by GeneR | 0 comments »

The box is 4” square and made from canary wood and walnut, with a birdseye maple and walnut top. This started as an idea for the wifes Christmas present and grew to a little monster. I first decided on the box size being determined buy the length and thickness of the piece of canary wood. the piece was about 28 in long 4 1/2” wide and 1/2” thick so 4” square gave me some screw up room. At this time I figured I would use a 1/4” piece of plywood for the bo...

Making a Single Slab Table

224 days ago by Odysseus | 4 comments »

Here’s a photo story of how a beautiful sapele slab dining table came to be… I anxiously awaited my flawless sapele slab from a top-dollar dealer… How NOT to palletize a very expensive slab. The 60 inch by 10 foot sapele slab arrived in less than the perfect shape promised. Here it is unwrapped, beautiful, but problematic… Hmm… I would say that’s cupped and sawn pretty bad. Yikes! Not the 12/4 promised. I decided to sand this board rath...

Doll Baby Crib Project #1: Doll baby Bed

230 days ago by Dan Tindall | 0 comments »

So I’ve been looking for a project that I could use as a gift for my Granddaughter (almost 2) and this month’s Wood Magazine had it right there between their pages. A Doll Baby bed project seems exactly what I was looking for and would fit in with time that I have available.It also doesn’t hurt that I had almost all of the materials sitting in my cut off bin! So, I am now about 50% complete with this project and due to a couple of the parts that need to be made, I d...
