My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1007: Project Progress

04-11-2013 11:30 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

The next several days, I am going to be posting a variety of pictures from the various new designs in their various stages of development. It may seem a bit mish-mosh, but I have so many things on the go here that I need to do it that way in order to keep up with everything. When all the projects are finished, I will do a recap of all the new designs in one post so everything will be all together. This is really a fun time for me! I spent the day yesterday working on several of the pi...

"wild cherry sideboard"

02-13-2008 04:28 PM by cowboy | 2 comments »

Several people have asked a few questions so I thought I’s tell a little about this piece.This was a spec piece that I wanted to take to a show.The cherry came from a board I selected from a pile of 1,000 bd ft of curly cherry and was obviously one of the wowie,zowie boards.It’s obviously a version of a very old design tha’s been around for years.Truthfully I don’t do that anymore as I only use my own designs and have gotten into a different type of thing,yet similiar....

Woodturning...a Segmented Vase of Walnut and Maple #1: Part 1...the transition at 800 rpm

06-15-2010 10:13 PM by Bob Simmons | 5 comments »

Perhaps the object pictured above looks a bit like a wooden pineapple, but trust me it will look a whole lot different as you will soon see. There are 14 rings to this vase and a total of 416 segments that are fit and glued together using Titebond 2 yellow glue. If the vase is going to hold water as well as flowers then an opening is necessary. As you can see a 1-7/8” forstner bit is being used to drill out an opening to allow for a glass vial to be inserted. The vas...

This week in urban logging #2: Spalting logs, it's just a matter of time.

06-23-2008 07:46 PM by Daren Nelson | 8 comments »

I think I timed these about right (just shy of 2 years), spalted maple, fresh sawn this morning. In the “group shot” of the 4 bookmatched live edge sets you cannot see the detail, so I took a couple close ups. Really any place on the boards would have made an interesting close up. With a finish that spalt should really be wild looking. 16”-18” wide sawn 5/4”

Now the video goes; ahora si funciona el video.

09-15-2009 11:05 AM by xylosapiens | 6 comments »

The change in progress: towards a “new end”. Sorry, I donĀ“t know what the problem was, but here you have the video working. I checked it. As I told you I had to do some modifications in order to accomplish a “new” requirement of my client. The client decided to make a change: he need an access to the desk’s inside, when her products are exposed on the counter. After thinking about the possible solutions and having to keep the structural solidity, I dec...

Progressing Forward

12-13-2010 04:17 AM by matt garcia | 7 comments »

Well it finally wamed up enough around here to do some glue ups. I got my feet made and glued up, and attached them to the base. Then I routed the edge of the base, and made the transition moulding and glued that. Now a mother cold front has come through, and it looks like it might freeze tonight!! Good thing I got busy in the shop yesterday. I also went to Clark’s for some secondary lumber. It must have been my lucky day Saturday!! When I arrived at Clark’s, first thing ...

Ambrosia-birdseye maple #7: The inlay

12-03-2011 04:38 AM by JoeyG | 4 comments »

Here is a coffee cup my daughter picked out for me while at Discovery Cove, Orlando, FL. I thought you would like to see my inspiration for this part of the project. Above is the carving filled with epoxy and sanded. Now to clean out air bubble craters and epoxy again. I love this blue, it has a metallic flake in it that looks great. Until next time, Joey
