My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #654: Two New Projects!

03-28-2012 10:09 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 14 comments »

Well, I finally feel like I actually accomplished something! While part of me knows that I work just about every day, sometimes I feel that unless I see something tangible at the end of the day, I didn’t get anything done. It seems like forever since I was able to present a new project, and even though I know it hasn’t been that long, with all the other things that have been going on lately, I feel like I have been slagging lately. Yesterday was a good day. Finally, a day ...

Kitchen Island #1: Without doors

03-19-2012 02:32 PM by Dpetty | 0 comments »

So im slowly getting into woodworking. Its something i have done to a small extent all my life, thanks to my dad who has always been pro in my eyes. Anyway, this is the first large project i have ever undertaken on my own. I decided to build it for my wife for valentines since we have almost NO counter space in our house… We moved in to an older home about a year ago and although the kithen is fairly large, there was no place for her to prepare meals and so forth. I got the plans on...

whipped up

02-07-2012 05:13 AM by Danpaddles | 4 comments »

I did not write this. Actually, I suspect it was written by a Brit, the spellings indicated that before I cleaned this up. But the shows he references are domestic. I grabbed it from somewhere many years ago. It has survived a hard drive crash (you can see what things I actually had backed up-) and two computer migrations, from Win97 to XP to 7. If it is inappropriate or placed incorrectly, someone say so, and I will pull it. I am still a newbie here. Don’t mean to throw my wei...

Laundry Room Floor Cabinet #1: Episode One

12-31-2011 03:58 AM by Eric | 3 comments »

For about a year now, I’ve been interested in trying my hand at building a cabinet. This summer (2011) while moving things around in the laundry room we discovered the particleboard floor cabinet in this room was beginning to crumble. My answer… Make another from particle board!!! Sorry LJs. Its my first cabinet. I’m not going to shed the bucks for a sheet of 3/4” 11-ply baltic birch on my first attempt. However, I did want to work with prefinished sheet goo...

Barnwood Countertops #1: Introduction

12-29-2011 03:47 AM by spunwood | 2 comments »

At the beginning of August, with the discovery of mold in my kitchen, I began building new countertops. The wood for this work all came from my inlaws barnwood. After getting the countertops glued up, I was interupted by life (teaching, UPS, kids, divorce, and more). Where I left off, I had just gotten the sections back from a local cabinetshop where it was run through a drum sander….. Well, FOUR MONTHS LATER, what a thrill to get back into the shop three days ago. I am tryi...

It allows you to specify the dimensions & grain direction for your stock sheets material, specify the dimensions and the required grain direction for each part you need to cut for your project, and set the kerf amount, then watch this app ge...

Scraps to Coasters #1: Prep Work and the Glue Up

09-08-2011 04:42 PM by Doug McPherson | 12 comments »

I’m sure others have posted a project similar to this, so I’ll be brief on the description. This is just another great, simple way to get some use from those cut-off strips that accumulate in the shop. I start by gluing up several pieces side to side, first making sure that the sides are square and parrallel for a good lamination. I make each layer just over the sized of the width of what I want for the coasters’ width. ok. After they dry, I run them through the p...

Kitchen Cabinets #1: Getting Started

05-05-2011 02:35 PM by AnthonyC | 7 comments »

Well it is finally starting: my job has relaxed a bit in workload, I have the tools, a design, and some of the raw materials. Time to build an entire kitchen! The home is an older, but not historic farmhouse colonial (~1970’s construction). Kitchen is about 15’ x 20’ and opens up to the family room, since I blew out the wall separating them. Style:We purchased a John Boos oval butcher block island as a centerpiece. The style will be a traditional colonial (simple, ...
