My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1528: Progress

04-02-2015 12:02 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It is another beautiful and sunny morning here on the bank of the Meteghan river. The air is calm and there isn't a cloud in the sky. Little by little the huge piles of snow is receding and we are able to see brownish patches of what promises to be green grass.  Spring is definitely on its way. It has been a long winter for us here in Nova Scotia. As with many other parts of the world, we seemed to have our fill of ice and snow. The past several years we have had mild winters, a...

Mosaics in Wood #1: Reveal Video - 7 Sisters Mosaic In Wood

12-02-2014 01:04 AM by Mathew Nedeljko | 3 comments »

I’m in the process of finishing my fourth Lazy Susan project that I call 7 Sisters using the Mosaic in Wood technique. I made this “Reveal” video to capture how the colors and grain of the walnut, cherry and maple pop as the finish goes on. This is definitely one of my favorite moments in the project build. Hope you enjoy!

FWW Build Off '08 #4: Wine Rack Installment #4

04-24-2008 03:22 PM by RusticElements | 3 comments »

Well, the rough sanding on the outside is done down to 150 grit. I used a belt sander with medium grit to do the bulk of it then an RO palm sander for the 150. The belt sander is an absolute no no if working on a cedar canoe but on the maple it worked great. There’s always a few gaps between the planks that have to be filled. I mixed up some filler using white wood glue (dries clear) and maple sanding dust to use as filler. I used epoxy and sanding dust when building the canoe and th...

"Hobbit Holes in MyWorld" --by RusticWoodArt #32: My Soul of Maple

09-20-2008 04:14 PM by frank | 3 comments »

My Soul of Maple Oh how the warmth of your glow, tolerates my being….—i feel as though there remains a connection,as we pass into fall….—why it was only yesterday that a seed fell to ground,much like in the beginning….—our time together often grows weary,as in the exiled seasons…. Can our love still survive against the onslaught, of hurled bark insulation….—where were it not for fire burnished passions,coming forth as desire̷...

Kitchen Cabinets #1: Lower shells complete.

05-17-2012 04:06 PM by Philip "Pip" Storm | 3 comments »

As part of our kitchen remodel I’m taking on building the cabinets. We are modeling these off of a set at a local big box store. Here’s some pics just after I attached the face frames. They are ready for a finish and then install. Sorry about the picture quality. I was using my ipod. Should have better pics as I get them over to the house. I’ve yet to build a 18” cabinet because it will be my “wild card” cabinet. A section of these cabin...

New Works In Progress --by RusticWoodArt #3: "Wood Stories...."

04-26-2007 05:34 PM by frank | 3 comments »

Wood Stories: ”Bench Dogging Before Greene and Greene” ....ah yes, and then it all starts coming back into focus, as i relax my grip upon this place of fields and greens, where imagination comes calling and selling herself to the highest bidder of foolish dreams…. —-and i realize now, that i am one of those foolish dreamers with pockets full of golden star dust, who could never quite adjust to walking this place of earthen dust, by giving up my right to silent...

Router Table Extension Wing #4: Which side is up?

02-07-2011 05:59 AM by HungryTermite | 3 comments »

I woke up this morning and tried to get some work done before the Super Bowl (Go Packers!). I trimmed the extra laminate and proceeded to bond the second face. Here is the top with sticks on it so I can position the laminate above it without gluing it in the wrong place: Then I placed the laminate on the sticks and got it positioned so there is equal amounts of overhang all the way around: Then I pull out the sticks working out from the middle and press the laminate down: Once agai...

Rack 'em up with a custom Billiard Rack

03-08-2013 08:20 AM by WoodJediNTraining | 3 comments »

One of my favorite pass times is playing pool (Billiards) and I thought this would be a cool project to share with you. If you have a pool table in your house or man cave or if you know someone who owns a pool table this would be a great gift to give… Also be sure to check out and subscribe to my new Youtube Channel “The Rundown” to get follow ups on my main project videos, that are on my main channel, as well as the rundown on small easy to build projects, ...

Kitchen Cabinets #1: Kitchen cabinet doors

08-26-2008 02:09 AM by Dan Lyke | 3 comments »

I debated whether I should put this entry here or over at HomeRefurbers, but that site really hasn’t taken off yet, and the process of coming up with our kitchen cabinets is feeling a whole lot more like woodworking than it is home improvement. Although an upgrade from the 1 person 1947 kitchen will certainly be an improvement. My arm was good enough this weekend to play in the shop again. My main project was to mock up a prototype to some lightweight appliance lift ideas I̵...
