Fishing Nets Made My Way

09-08-2010 11:47 PM by Greg | 8 comments »

I wanted to share my experiences in making landing nets with you. This is from an article I wrote for the August 2010 edition of On The Fly, the newsletter for the Fly Fishing Club of Orange County. Building the Perfect Landing NetBy Greg Madrigal Like many of you, I started fishing when I was very young, and something about it never let go of me. Growing up with 5 sisters left our family with little to no money most of the time. Work for my father was hard to come by growing u...

Finished installing the top and it’s starting to look very attractive. Although I can’t seem to get one end of it to sit completely flat but other that everything seems alright. Tell me what you think…!

Segmented Wood Turning...Staves and Vertical Spacers #1: Let's Build a Fruit Bowl

09-05-2010 07:53 PM by Bob Simmons | 5 comments »

This unique woodworking project is part of the Let’s Build Series. For this intriguing, woodworking video tutorial we are once again in the woodworking shop creating a custom wood turning, a fruit bowl for the breakfast room table. The wood we are using is light walnut for the 12 staves, dark walnut for the 12 vertical spacers, and ribboned mahogany for the base. The challenge we face is gluing all 24 segments at one time. For this project we need to be dead-on accurate and focuse...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #89: Back to the Shop!

08-31-2010 01:36 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

Sometimes I am just like a child. I guess that age has nothing to do with maturity, does it? Here I was yesterday, doing what I was supposed to be doing (drawing) and my partner called that he got off of work early. By early, I mean it was about 2pm. He asked if I wanted to head to Bernie’s and re-saw that wood we got on Friday (I guess he is a child, too!) and it took me about half a second to answer YES! I have been thinking about all those beautiful wood pieces since we got ba...

Let's Build a Magazine Case

08-29-2010 05:38 PM by Bob Simmons | 5 comments »

As featured in the Let’s Build series... Many of woodworkers receive woodworking magazine subscriptions in the mail each month and as the time goes by these magazines accumulate. These magazines are a great source for reference and also inspiration so it is nice to have them protected and organized so that we can easily access the information. Now, a woodworker can simply purchase a magazine case from the publisher or from a local discount store and be done with it. However, since...

Kitchen Cabinets #8: Doors in!

08-19-2010 05:46 PM by Dan Lyke | 4 comments »

Still need to do the drawer fronts, but the doors are in! And they are kinda snazzy, if I do say so myself. Note, in particular, the grain matching.

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...
