From Southwest to Contemporary

1159 days ago by thewoodwhisperer | 20 comments »

Right Click to DownloadRight Click to Download in HDSubscription Options My mom’s house is full of cabinet doors that were made in a Southwestern style and its time for a change. Replacing the cabinets is certainly an option and just replacing the doors alone would work too. But what if we could use our woodworking skills to modify the doors instead. In our situation, this turned out to be the perfect solution. So join me as I show you how to carefully modify and refinish my momR...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #264: Back to Some Woodworking

1253 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 19 comments »

I finally got back to doing some woodworking yesterday. I had finished drawing this pattern up last week and got it cut out, but it seemed that I was in several other directions the past several days and it was kind of woven in between all the other things I was doing. It is a simple design by my own standards, and I had mixed feelings about it. I find however that every design doesn’t have to be complex to be successful, and I think it will have a wide appeal. After seeing it fin...

Radial Dovetail Box Construction

2109 days ago by Woodhacker | 16 comments »

Some time ago I posted a blog about a dovetail joint I came up with. I call it the radial dovetail. It incorporates handcut dovetails, but rather than using the traditional 1:8 ratio for the dovetail angle for hardwood, each side of each tail varies and is drawn from a perspective point. Then the sides of the box were contoured to blend with the dovetail design. Here’s a picture of the nearly completed box. It is made of curly maple, Carribean rosewood, and hickory.I like to think of t...

Hickory Chest Build #1: Hickory Chest Build

1006 days ago by WoodJediNTraining | 15 comments »

Recently I started a Hickory Chest Project. This chest will feature raised panels as well as a cedar lining. I have been videoing the build. To share with viewers who might like to watch. I’m right at the point of getting ready for the finish. But before i do, I want to pose a question to my fellow Lumber Jock’s… Here is a picture of the Chest. It has some cool features. ( beetle bore holes, knots, etc.) Id like to showcase in the project. With that being said. Here is my qu...

Lumber Score!

1039 days ago by SteveKorz | 14 comments »

I was walking through the timber a month ago, and found a huge smooth bark hickory that had fallen from a storm. The trunk was 24” in diameter at its base, and 30 foot up the trunk it was 16” in diameter. When I saw it, I knew it just had to be milled. I already had a cherry that had fallen that was 20 foot tall and a foot in diameter. So, I called a sawyer that came and picked up one 6 foot and two 12 foot hickory logs, and one 5 foot and two 8 foot cherry logs. ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #111: A Woodworking "Beary Tale"

1406 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 12 comments »

Once upon a time, there was a woodworker named Scrollgirl. She loved woodworking of all kinds and making patterns so others could join in her fun and make their own woodworking projects. One day, one of her friends on Lumberjocks asked her if she could do him a favor and make some bears for her. She was happy to do it and went right to work. She picked a beautiful hickory board to create her bears, with a warm golden color. “This would be perfect” she thought as she sanded a...

Well ...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #581: Have a Heart!

929 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

I was gone much of yesterday, but I did manage to finish up my ornaments when I got home. I suppose that I was just too excited to leave them until the next day and couldn’t wait to see how they came out. I am really pleased with them and I hope that everyone else likes them too. After doing a final sanding on them, I dipped them in my usual mineral oil. I am finding this as my favorite method for finishing up fretwork and small pieces like this. It is quick and easy and doesn...

Commisions #3: Mirror Frame #3

2254 days ago by teenagewoodworker | 9 comments »

Well over the last two days i have been able to really get some good solid work done on my mirror frames. first i was able to mill all the lumber to final width. then it was time to cut the piece. i don’t have a long miter bed with a stop block so i used double stick tape to hold the rough identical pieces together to give me exactly the same piece. the first picture is putting the tape on and the second is all the piece cut to final length. Then i cut the groove in th...
