My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1294: Website Updated

84 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Yesterday I spent the day writing our bi-monthly newsletter and sending it out to our customers. We have been doing pretty well with gaining new subscribers as out business continues to grow. We are also happy that we seem to be figuring out how to send a proper newsletter so that the mail servers don’t view it as SPAM and block it. For a while, we were getting several hundred emails bounced back to us whenever we sent out an issue. This was annoying because not only did it clog up my...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1292: Ooh, La La! Look at "Paris" Now!

86 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

Yesterday I showed the new “Paris” plaque that I designed. I really enjoyed making it and I loved the simplicity of the design as well as the pretty fretwork frame. I really appreciated the nice comments that were made regarding it, as I always try to make something that is both fun to make as well as appealing. I loved the color of the natural maple that I used for the plaque. But what really had inspired me to make this plaque was one of the memory papers that I had com...

Wooden Planes #9: Curly smoother

87 days ago by Mark Kornell | 7 comments »

This one is a smoother with a 45 degree bed. About 10 1/2” long Curly maple, jatoba stripes and ipe sole. (I have half a plank of 1×4 ipe – what else am I going to use it for besides soles for planes?) And another cut-down LV wooden plane iron. Finish is tung oil and wax. The configuration of the stripes was inspired by a picture of a AC Cobra in racing trim. Not a typical stripe configuration for a Cobra, so it stuck out. This one loves making beautifully f...

Wooden Planes #7: Laminated Block

87 days ago by Mark Kornell | 0 comments »

This one was an exercise in lamination. 6 primary species of wood – western maple, red oak, sapele, cherry, birch and walnut. Two pieces of each species, each piece at a different thickness, and some random veneer thrown in between each primary wood piece, for a total of 23 layers. The sole is white oak. Glue is urea formaldehyde, so I could glue it up in one go. Didn’t think I could get it done with PVA. The bed is 45 degrees, and was my first double iron plane. I someho...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1291: A New Project

87 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 7 comments »

I found that I needed a couple of days to catch up with things. As our little business grows, with that growth comes a need to spend more time on the administration duties. I am not complaining about this at all, as I realize that it is part of the process and I am happy that so many people are interested and asking questions and learning. I am thrilled that others are learning from our experiences and I try to help them whenever I am able. But that sometimes means that there is less tim...

My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #16: New Product Line! *Scroll Saw Puzzles*

91 days ago by Ethan Harris | 4 comments »

Hello All, Just found some time to send an update to Lumber Jocks. Spud Woodworks is growing once more, this time I have launched a new product line! I acquired a NEW in the box 1995 Delta Scroll Saw on Ebay… That’s right, I couldn’t believe it when I came across it! And it is beautiful and works amazingly. Anyhow, I decided to start making wood puzzles and I designed my first set of them to begin selling. I also added some walnut and maple blocks to my wooden blocks p...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1287: A Creative Mix

93 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

It’s funny how I have gotten into the habit of writing here every day. As I am approaching my fourth anniversary of starting my blog, I think of all the time and energy that I put into posting each morning here and it boggles my mind. If someone were to approach me four years ago and tell me that this was my ‘assignment’, I don’t think that I could have pulled it off. But looking back, I realize just how important posting here has been to me on so many levels. Thro...

Apartment Projects #21: Have to Get in the Shop!

94 days ago by littlecope | 11 comments »

It has been a L-O-N-G and C-O-L-D Winter here in New Hampshire!!Perhaps we didn’t break single day records, but it has been consistently cold since last October, which dealt a crippling blow to my enthusiasm for Woodworking… The Temperature in the Basement Shop here hovered around 40° for most of that time, too cold for whatever determination I possess!But the Calendar pages turn, and Good Old Sol continues to ride higher in the Sky, with inevitable results… It is fin...

Lee and Shelley's Wet Bar #5: Drawer and Carcase Construction

99 days ago by MT_Stringer | 1 comment »

Onward and upward. I made the drawers out of hard maple. The front of the drawers were made using a Porter cable dovetail jig to produce half blind dovetails. The back of the drawers was simple butt joint construction, using glue and brad nails. The rear piece was ripped short so it could be installed, then the bottom slid in. I anchored the bottom with several short staples across the back. This method works out pretty well for me. Cutting the dovetails on the front only reduces produc...
