My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1844: New "Summer" Scatter Block Design

06-22-2017 01:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

After a great deal of rain over the past several days, yesterday (the first day of summer) was the first day that we had a day filled with sunshine in what seemed like a long time. It seemed appropriate. It also seemed appropriate that I was working on my new pattern that will include both the scroll sawn version as well as painting instructions for these cute and fun Summer Scatter Blocks (SLD537) that I showed as the 'woodworking version' in my last blog post: While I f...

How to Make a Handy little Scribe

05-11-2017 02:04 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 0 comments »

View on YouTube One of things I absolutely hate to do in my work is to waste anything. Even if it only costs 2$ to purchase the materials I feel as though throwing away something that can be repurposed is like throwing that 2$ in the trash. To a certain extent there are things that need to be tossed, but when you can make something like a tool then I think it’s worth the while to take the time to make something useful out of that waste. Thus we have this little tool. I had wante...

ATTN OKLAHOMA WOODWORKERS!!

05-10-2017 02:49 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

So I noticed after looking on Facebook that there were no woodworking guilds in Oklahoma that I could fine so I’ve made a Facebook page titled woodworkers Guild of Oklahoma basically just because a lot of other states have a guild and my hopes are to build some networking and make some relationships with some other woodworkers locally because to be quite honest I don’t have but one friend who is a woodworker and he can’t do anything right now because of a personal injury. ...

Beaded vessel #1: Started making beads and burning lines.

03-27-2017 02:25 PM by Julian | 7 comments »

I recently saw some videos on how to make a “basket weave illusion” bowl. There are some fantastic examples on the internet by wood turners such as Doug Schneiter and Harvey Meyer. I just had to give this a try.Here is one of their projects: The beads were cut with two different sized beading tools (3/16” and 1/4”). One beading tool is a Robert Sorby tool and the other is a D-Way tool. The D-Way tool cuts smoother in my opinion. When all the b...

"Square" Turnings #1: Off-Cut Turning #1

03-22-2017 07:06 PM by onefullturn | 0 comments »

I recently posted a project involving a square turning and was asked how it is done. I often use this method to turn small boxes from off-cuts. Let’s start with this piece of spalted maple. It has nice spalting and a bit of spongy wood on one face. That part will be turned away. I start by mounting between centres and truing up the face near the tailstock. With small pieces like this, turning the corners does usually not present any problems. I start with a 1/4 inch bowl gouge to...
