Finishing maple

02-09-2015 11:14 PM by Deanna | 7 comments »

I am finishing a maple piece. It is sanded 120, 150. I am getting ready to go to a 180 then a 220 before applying a wood conditioner (2 coats with a 320 sanding after each) before using a wiping stain. Am I on the right track? I feel I might be over sanding but not sure. Getting sanding fatigue! haha

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #13: Cut tenons, make mortise jigs

03-30-2015 12:38 AM by ic3ss | 0 comments »

Whew, my workweek is finally over and now I can have some fun. I’ve been thinking all week about today, particularly what I still need to get to push this project along. I needed a jig to cut the mortises, and I was looking at pattern bits and I came away with an education. Top bearing straight cut pattern bits are expensive. I didn’t want to spend that much so I went to woodcraft last week when I bought my last pieces of wood for the leg and rail, and picked up a guide bushing fr...

Jewelry Box #1: Shhhhh! Xmas present for Mrs. Slappy! Don't tell!

09-17-2007 05:04 AM by slaphitter | 2 comments »

Well, wife has used the same cheapie jewerly box for about 17 years. I originally bought it for her from a department store, way back in the dark ages, and I guess it serves its purpose. But it isn’t even wood – it’s made of fabric wrapped around who-knows-what. So this year I am going to build her a huge jewelry chest. The production-line gift for relatives is going to be something else, but under cover of that project I have begun working on the chest. The primary...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1643: Online Learning

10-28-2015 12:39 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

When I think back to when I began painting and scroll sawing, I remember how different things were back then. I started both in the mid-90's and there was very little available online. I remember when we purchased our first home computer and I was thrilled at the thought of being able to type on it. My biggest excitement was that I would have a way to find and organize things like recipes and photos, as it was a time when my kids were young and my own little family was a focus. I never co...

Leg and support joinery

04-21-2016 04:29 PM by Tooch | 2 comments »

After fixing the holes in the legs, it was time to square up the top supports and begin on the large motise and tenon joints on the underbracing. I started by finding the center of the supports and measuring out from there: After that, I carefully marked out what needed to be removed: I used a combination of a 3/8” mortise bit (for the corners), a 2” forstener bit (for the large middle section), and a hand chisel to clean up everything else. A dado bit on th...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1102: Cutting, Routing and Scrolling Frames

08-10-2013 11:22 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I finished all of my cutting yesterday. That was a big plus. Cutting out nine plaques of this type in under two days was an accomplishment that I was satisfied with. I had initially hoped that I would have these all oiled and finished by today, but as usual, things came up and I need to sand and oil them today. I should have better pictures tomorrow. I am pleased with these designs. While they are not really difficult, some of the motifs do present a little bit of a challenge. I think...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1512: BUNNIES!!!!!

03-09-2015 12:54 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

I had a good and busy weekend! It just goes to show that when I set my mind to doing things, I can really accomplish a lot. On Friday I finished up three drawings for new patterns.  It may not seem like a lot, but I keep adding little extras to make them even more special and allow those who purchased the patterns to do lots with them.To me, patterns are much more than just handing off some line work. Especially in scroll sawing, where the lines are what we follow with the saw. While the...

The drill box #2: Working on a bottom for the box

08-15-2015 07:53 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Ok, started off checking the layouts.. All four sides together and square? Check! Motivator in place? Check. trimmed the bottom panel. Trimmed two pieces of JEFF’S Maple, jointed the edges, and clamped them up in the now empty clamps. Then stowed them out of the way for awhile… Ok, back to the Oak stuff. Got the bottom panel all nice and square. Clamped it down to the bench, time to cut a rebate or four… Numbah Wun! took a bit to set it just right. ...
