My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #28: Another New Project in The Works

07-01-2010 12:59 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

It’s pretty quiet around here today. It’s one of those days when I can’t wait to get to the scroll saw, but it is only 7am and I don’t dare until another couple of hours. I was able to finish another drawing last night of a fretwork liner that I am going to market to set under the large jar candles. It will resemble the dresser tray in concept, but it will set underneath the jar. Many people thought that the little dresser tray was made for that purpose, as the size...

The old time woodshop journals #30: The man on the mountain

10-10-2012 09:45 PM by jjw5858 | 3 comments »

Although I was glad to share my overall opinions and enjoyment of my journey north I thought it to be sort of empty of me if I forgot the man on the mountain. In past blog work you may have recalled a short mention of a man named Topper. Topper is Jenns dad and always supplying Jenn after a Thanksgiving or Christmas visit with some great cuts of hunted Venison to bring back for us to enjoy. I had never had the opportunity to actually go and meet him so this was a sure adventure to see j...

Twins! #3: Wood selection

11-19-2011 01:45 AM by Andy123 | 3 comments »

Well… I haven’t made and entry in a while. I’ve made a cut list and compared prices in Eugene, Oregon. Emerson Hardwood/Crosscut had the best prices. I made a detailed list of what wood I needed, in common thicknesses and widths. All I needed was laid out down to the last detail. I had my list in hand and I drove the 1.5 hours to Eugene to get my lumber. When I got there, Emerson had the widths I needed, but not the lengths. Crap! I had to redo the lumber list all in my hea...

Toy building #7: The Concrete Pump - The Finish

12-16-2015 05:47 PM by johnstoneb | 3 comments »

I finally finished the boom and got everything installed. The linkage for the Hydraulic cylinders on the outer two boom sections would need to be redesigned if it actually had to work but it gives the illusion it is working. That is what counts on a toy. Outer 3 sections of the boom Everything installed and working Here everything extended Hopefully my grandson can figure out how to fold and extend this boom. I didn’t run any piping on the boom figured ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #43: Sometimes the Lazy Way is More Work Then Anticipated (But We Learn Something)

07-16-2010 01:08 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

OK. This is getting scary. Do we only get so many good days in a given time period? Or are we really the masters of our own destiny? I am probably over-reacting, but I just really like when things work out like you want them to. I am kind of hoping that it is because thought and planning went into something that it turns out well. That gives us some sense of control. I would hate to think that it is only by chance. So where were we? Ah, yes. The autumn leaf candle tray. As I was sa...

3-in-1 Crib/Bed #1: Design Process

12-04-2009 08:32 AM by MDRoehl | 3 comments »

Here is the pciture that my wife and I picked for the starting point for the design for the crib. What do you think? Here is a few versions of the headboard. Votes on which one you would use. I believe that I will be making it out of Cherry with maple accents. It will be shaker style with an applied trim molding which I think will be maple. Picture below. The slats in the front may be flat and ~ 1-1/2” wide and possibly maple as well, but I don’t know if tha...

My first Lazy Suzan.

03-05-2010 05:47 AM by Lupo | 3 comments »

I am building this for a friend Over Seas. Her name is Ines so that is what this is named also. The ” Lazy Ines ”. It ought to be fun to finish. I do not have a thickness planer so it has been all Hand Planers. Also the edges are being rounded out by hand with a rasp. You really appreciate the work when you have limited tools!!!!

First Shop #5: Bench, Chisels and First Project

01-07-2008 03:01 AM by YooperCasey | 3 comments »

Last time I laid out my equipment purchase plans. No progress on purchases though I have decided on the Ridgid TS3650 contractor saw. I see the Woodworking show is coming to Milwaukee in February and that is only 5 hours south for me, so I may see what kind of deal I can snag there on a table saw. I’ve spent the last few evenings working on my core skills. Marking out, cutting, fitting and basically getting used to how certain things behave. This includes trying out my new Bosch CS20...

Twins! #6: It's finally together!

03-26-2012 03:01 AM by Andy123 | 3 comments »

Well, today was the day where I got it together. It still needs mattress support, but I can bang that out in an hour. I had my dad, the girls’ “Papa,” help me out. Over the course of about two two-hour sessions we did a lot. We had to mark and drill for the dowel pins in the rail sections. I made a quick jig out of a piece of 1.5 inch x 3/4 inch maple scrap and two small pieces of scrap plywood. It matched the thickness of the rails sections and it had the plywood section...
