My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #77: A Day of Learning

08-19-2010 01:33 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

Yesterday turned out to be a day of learning. For me, those are always good days. I had originally planned to take some quick pictures of the new project and one that my partner was just finished with and then spend the rest of the day drawing and working on the next one. That just wasn’t how it turned out to be. One of the best thing about being your own boss and keeping on schedule is that it allows you the flexibility to deviate from that schedule most of the time. At least f...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #76: Fretwork Cross Candle Tray and Charms

08-18-2010 01:32 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

After the initial delay of the morning yesterday, things went pretty well. The power remained on and as I understand it, it was out all the way to town for the time that it was. Although it remained overcast for most of the day, the misty rain subsided and by the time in needed to do the quick routing on the candle tray, the pavement was even dry. Things went very well. Since I changed my router bit, I have had little problem with burning. Apparently the dull bit was the culprit, and I...

Explorer guitar #1: A old project revived.

08-12-2010 11:24 PM by Benighted | 3 comments »

Hi and welcome to my explorer guitar blog. This is a project I started 5 or 6 years ago when I found some mahogany in my fathers garage, I built the neck mostly by handtools, finished it with nitrocellulose laquer (which sadly has cracked in some places and is currently being stripped off). The neck is made of mahogany, a fretboard of indian rosewood, and the head veneer is also indian rosewood. The body will be made of mahogany, and the top is figured bubinga. I’ll post mor...

Desk Build #1: Layout & Milling Materials

08-05-2010 02:14 PM by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

I know this is a little out of order but I needed to get started on these desks ahead of the garbage can containers. What is great about these desks is that we will be using different kinds of joinery. We’ll be laminating the legs, pocket hole joinery for the aprons and top. Plus there will be some edge banding happening too. You will also see how I build my drawer boxes and the material that I use for this in future episodes. Don’t forget to sign up for Huck’s (hucksdi...

getting close… finished the drawer fronts, so I’m nearly done with all cutting. Mostly left is sanding and the part I dread the most – finishing. That’ll be the make it or break it time.
