My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #284: A Little Demonstration Piece for Class

03-14-2011 12:09 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

Today’s post is going to be short. I know I have said that before, but then I get to rambling on. I can’t however today because I have an appointment in Yarmouth and need to get it in gear early. I am happy to say that I got to spend at least a little time at the saw yesterday. I worked on some of the pieces that I will be demonstrating with at the lectures. Since this isn’t a ‘hands-on’ type of class due to the size and time constraints, it is up to me ...

Project 365 #4: days 63 & 64, camera phones eye view

03-06-2011 05:13 AM by scottb | 2 comments »

Pardon the sometimes slightly out of focus glimpse of these little, teeny tiny bowls coming to life. It probably has more to do with the coating of dust on my face shield than all them mega pixels crammed into my pocket. (Which out snaps my first TWO digital cameras.).. Anywho, our fellow lumberjock Karson sent me a lovely box-o-wood, and asked if I’d turn out a couple of cousins of this little beauty: We’d both figured these would come up as projects in my “next&#...

Leonard Street Workshop #7: 6,000 BF of maple. wow!

03-06-2011 04:38 AM by tyskkvinna | 12 comments »

I told you I had a lot of maple coming soon. the boards are about 2” wide (2 1/4”, but I believe that includes the T&G), 4/4 thick and varied lengths. That room is 20’ x 40’—only about 5’ of it doesn’t have any planks. The pile is roughly 5-6’ tall. With various amounts of help, I pulled these up from the floor and then moved them into this room. They will then get processed and sold. If you need some maple, LET ME KNOW! ...

Cello#8 final contours and hollowing out the back

03-06-2011 12:50 AM by techyman2 | 6 comments »

Hi all,THe last entry saw the contour shapes made. These were chacked against the cross section templates. I need to check the form is accurate against the contour plan. Remember the plan shown below. It is used to make comparisons with the existing contours on the cello back. THe contours are drawn on to the back using a simplistic type of surface gauge aka a bit of wood with a pencil held on to a flat surface. The pencil point is set at the height of the contour and this is ma...

refurbishing old tools #7: The making of a simple Plain TOTE

03-05-2011 03:22 AM by Dave | 6 comments »

OK I am running out of shelf space and am in need of storing my planes with a better method. I will attempt to build a plane tote that I can change its configuration as my plane habit grows. I have purchased some s4s 4/4 tiger maple. I ripped them down to 5” wide by 2 1/2’ long. Now let us see how that refurbed coffin plane works out. The vendor I purchase my wood from is in need to sharpen his planer blades. The maple does have some interlocking grain. So I broke ou...

Corner Inlay Table #12: Almost there...The big reveal!

03-02-2011 04:46 PM by Rick | 2 comments »

Took a breath, gave the table tops some time, and then took the tape off. Even with some of the lessons learned regarding the mask, there were some places the stain was able to sneak under the over-laps, but some more where it didn’t. Next – I have to put the second part of the stain recipe on the larger base, and tone the smaller base a bit darker. Will probably have that same adjustment on the larger base But overall, they’re coming together. F...

Design And Build - Memorial Pet Urn #1: Working out a Design - Sketchup Renders

02-28-2011 03:34 AM by Brad_Nailor | 2 comments »

Recently, we lost a valued member of our family. Sam was a silver tiger cat, who was born on St. Patrick’s day, 1992….he was 19. So I was preparing to build a pet urn for his ashes to be kept in my wife reminded me that we still had ashes from our boxer Lucas, who had passed a few years ago. Since these two were buddies in life, and now that Sammy has gone to the great cat box in the sky I thought it would be nice to make matching urns for them. I looked online, and on here at som...

Custom Wooden Pistol Handle for Taurus Judge Tutorial #2: Part 2

02-28-2011 12:10 AM by Barrett | 0 comments »

First, the project started with a hunt for the right wood, using the original pistol handle as a guide in finding a piece of appropriate size. After transferring the basic dimensions onto the wood, make a rough cut with a bandsaw. Afterwards, re-sawed the wood using a bandsaw to create a new handle blank. The next step involves routing out the inside of the handle halves to slide in the metal tang of the pistol. Transfer the unique shape of the metal tang onto the insides of...
