Built In Closets #5: Pre Finishing and Sub Assembly

11-08-2010 05:01 PM by SPHinTampa | 2 comments »

Having the bulk of pieces, cut and sanded, I elected to tape and pre finish most of the components. Finishing large projects is a huge challenge for me as I work in a 3 car garage and can not easily spray stuff. Since I was finishing many large panels, I decided to try applying the clear coat with a floor roller. Since I like their other products, I decided to use a Zinsser water based poly. It worked as well as brushing does, however, the coats go on thick and you need to watch the rol...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1416: Gone Batty Candle Holders

10-06-2014 11:18 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

After another beautiful autumn weekend here in Nova Scotia, I am ready to start a brand new week. I had a very productive couple of days, as I was able to draw up two new candle tray patterns and work on my new project that I had shown you all on Friday. I also had several sizable wood orders which will be shipped out today so I spent much of the afternoon yesterday at the scroll saw. It's all good. I really enjoy providing wood for people. While it does take me away from designing a...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1499: After the Storm

02-17-2015 12:51 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

After the last few days of snow and wind, it finally seems to have calmed down here. As I look outside this morning, everything is calm and the sun is shining brightly. What a beautiful winter day it is! I am happy to say that our winter storm wasn't that bad for us. While I know it was a hard on many (and I feel badly for that) we were fortunate that we were safe and warm and power was uninterrupted throughout the duration. Adele was able to get to the wharf finally and check on the...

Roubo Workbench Build #1: The beginning - Lumber, milling and laying out

04-15-2013 10:52 PM by Willeh | 2 comments »

I’ve often thought, especially while browsing some of the beautiful workbench projects that have been posted here, that building a masterpiece of a workbench is truly a rite of passage for a woodworker. I’ve been into woodworking for a few years now, with practically no background in the trade, and am self taught. (Save for 6 months of shop class back in grade 8.) I started out mostly as a power tool woodworker, but as i’m trying to achieve better results, I have been mov...

Here I rough cut the sides I used a piece of oak dowel as the handle. A piece of mahogany for the bottom I used a piece of lightly finished cedar and a piece of maple with a live edge for the center separator I cut slots on the inside so the separator would fit in snug Here is the original image I found for the side panel label I converted it to a single color image and used a laser cutter to burn it into the wood. Here things are ‘doweled&...

Custom Buffet #6: Drawer Construction

11-05-2013 01:59 AM by MT_Stringer | 2 comments »

It has been a struggle, but I finally managed to get the drawers built. I made drawer stock by gluing up discounted (50% off) lumber purchased at the lumber yard. They sell “shorts” – boards that are less than 48 inches in length in various widths. I made the drawers out of poplar with the exception of the pull out tray. It is maple. With the boards glued up, I then planed them to just over 5/8 inch. Then I switched to the drum sander and sanded them to 5/8 inch th...
