Practices in Spoonology: Part three

09-04-2012 11:36 PM by jjw5858 | 6 comments »

Well I thought it might be best this evening to get to the shop and keep up with the spoon practicing and see where are am at with things. I felt good and energized after a fine meal of venison burger, potatoes and greens. I have to say that deer meat is a terrific source of rocket fuel and lucky for me I have no better source than my uncle Topper who lives in the cold hills of the upstate NY. When it comes to some well hunted eats there’s no better of a choice than Toppers freezer for some d...

Wood Related #1: Updated Lumber Rack Projects !!

03-30-2010 05:49 AM by Michael Hacker | 6 comments »

I have moved.. and moved a considerable amount of WOOD! I have updated my lumber rack projects with new photos of the current racks. My new shop is the entire basement, and to say its bigger than my last basement shop is an understatement. I have four times the space! and at least 88” of height between my floor mats and floor joists! I have repacked the racks and have collected EVEN MORE WOOD! You see my new house was built in 1918, and the basement had a few excellent resource...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1580: Lots of Fretwork!

06-29-2015 11:43 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

One of the things that I like best about what I do is the great variety of ways I am able to create. As with most of you, the more I look and discover, the more I want to expand my 'crafting arsenal'. I find it very rare to meet people that only dapple in ONE type of creating. Most like to do many. I am often asked how I keep coming up with fresh ideas. After over 20 years of doing this for a living, it seems that I never run out of new things to do. There are times when I feel a...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #580: The Spice of Life

01-11-2012 01:19 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Those of you who know me well know that I am not a ‘random’ type of person. I generally like to keep everything pretty organized and when I do something, it is done systematically and orderly. I find that as my way to keep my busy life under control. I have always been somewhat like that. With that said, I realize that doing an assignment or project such as the one I am working on now is something if a stretch for me. It isn’t often that I do something that is on this...

Cheap wood 101

10-10-2016 02:27 PM by Fatherlewis | 5 comments »

Hi fellow LJs. I must say that in my first couple of months here, I have learned a lot. This place is a wealth of knowledge and good ideas, and maybe some not too good ideas. But hey, we are all adults here, and we share our triumphs and defeats, good ideas and bad(if there really is such a thing), as well as good deals, trade secrets, and all other things woodworking. So I found a steal of a deal on the hardwood rough sawn lumber over the weekend. My excitement poured over on the insid...

Wood Library #2: Hickory

06-01-2008 03:50 AM by teenagewoodworker | 5 comments »

I know that there is already an entry on hickory but i figure that the more entries we get even if on the same wood our library will grow as everyone will present new ideas. so first off one thing that i noticed with hickory was that it chipped out a lot with router use. what i did to counter this though was take a lot of passes. even if you do take a lot of passes though you can still get chip out. also the king of chip out on hickory are the straight grained boards that are the ones that wo...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1568: Fun NEW Projects!

06-08-2015 12:47 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

This past weekend I was terribly busy and I had a wonderfully fun time. While I loved creating my last huge project, it felt really good to be able to do some other things. When I work on one thing, I often get ideas for other projects to follow. I have learned to write these ideas down in a file so that later on when I am looking for something new to do, I have lots to choose from. You wouldn't believe how long the list is! I call it my 'job security' though and it seems that the...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1581: . . . and Then There Were FIVE!

06-30-2015 11:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I stayed quite busy yesterday, doing one of the things that I love to do. I really love so many of my creative aspects, and switching from one to the other back and forth always seems to keep me freshly excited about every one of them. Yesterday I spent the day at the saw. I had my headphones on and I was into a 'classical' mood. I got lost listening to my three favorite composers – Rachmoninoff, Beethovan and Mozart. It made a good thing even better. Before long, the three...

Commisions #5: Mirror Frame #5

06-04-2008 02:10 AM by teenagewoodworker | 5 comments »

Well the frame is finally done and its time for the best part the finish ;) so i started off as usual with a fresh frame sanded to 180 my first 3 coats were General Finishes Natural Danish oil and this really brings out all this hickory’s got. i think that this is a prime example of how as Charles Neil stated in his video that the colors that really bring out the wood are the ambers and the yellows (not the exact statement but in the ball park) and i think this is a golden exa...

Re-handling a Framing Hammer

11-10-2013 04:29 AM by summerfi | 4 comments »

This old framing hammer is in need of a new handle. I’ll make one out of the hickory board it’s lying on. I’ve cut out the blank for the new handle. Here I’ve laid out the exterior outline of the handle and the break points for each curve. I’ve cut out the shape of two sides of the handle on the bandsaw. I saved the cutouts and taped them back on so I have lines to cut out the other two sides. Here is the blank after sawing has ...
