My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1456: Some New Patterns I Created

12-04-2014 02:01 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 4 comments »

We are getting ready for another site update, and I have a couple of new patterns that I have been working on that I hope to finish up today.It seems that people really like word art. We often get request for  personalized projects and plaques that have names or sayings that our customers like. That is one reason that Keith decided to do some personalized plaques, and they have been really popular. I also love cutting lettering. To me, the prettier the font, the better. There is som...

About 2 miles from here, pull into the fellow ...

I refused to shell out 4k for a snap-On hutch for my tool box at work so I decided to make one just how I wanted it.

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1617: Change

09-08-2015 11:28 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

With the Labor Day weekend behind us, we realize that summer is coming to a close. Things are already changing. The mornings are darker and the night air is cooler. Before long summer will be a memory and it will be a new season. Autumn is upon us. I know that I say this every year, but it went by much too quickly. Perhaps it is because our winter here was so long and brutal. I remember driving to Halifax in mid-April and still seeing piles of snow on the ground that hadn't melted. I...

"Dawning Grace" --by RusticWoodArt

08-07-2007 12:49 PM by frank | 4 comments »

Dawning Grace ....facing the dawn, this re-curring dream, seeks to implode upon my horizontal vision, and i having only two hands start working again…. —-were it not for the silence that so surrounds me, i would be tempted to turn on a machine, since by the familiar sounds of a motors running dialogue, can the equations of wood time be speeded up somewhat…. —-but not this dawn, as my hand reaches for the broadax, this morning i will make my peace with this pi...

Starbuck's Coffee Entertainment Center #3: After all this time...

01-31-2009 07:05 AM by Kevin Wilson | 6 comments »

Well, we are finally done! The entertainment center is ready to be shipped. The piece features adjustable shelves, a false panel back to hide all wiring, and that funny looking little stand on top. The stand is for a center channel speaker for the surround sound system. I needed a way to cover the hole that was in the original top so I designed this stand to allow the center speaker to rotate left to right and adjust up or down to aim the sound as required. Hope you guys and gi...

Boat building #1: In need of spiritual applicant with free plans

09-27-2009 06:08 PM by threehands | 2 comments »

Hello all. I am in need. A need to fill the void. The void is an empty spot. The empty spot in an area of the shop I haven’t seen in years. There actually is a floor under all that “junk” as the bride would say. (I say golden treasures.) But, what I need now is spiritual help and a set of free plans for a drift boat or dory. I know I can build one, just need the plans. Have looked and downloaded several but cant find ones concerning a Montana style. Those guys craft some s...

Bookshelves #1: raw materials

03-03-2010 08:29 PM by Vick | 6 comments »

I decided to try my hand with 8/4 stock and save a little money by re-sawing all the stock myself. Looking back at it, I guess it was worth the $100 I saved but it was more of a hassle then I thought it was going to be.

Sunshine Yacht Tender Model #6: Buying the Wood

07-12-2010 03:18 PM by kharder | 2 comments »

I have recently moved and progress on the model boat Sunshine has slowed. When i find my camera i’ll post the pictures of the completed molds mounted and aligned on the strongback. In preperation for actual construction I began researching what types of wood to use. I found out about Jeff at HobbyMill (HobbyMill@cinci.rr.com) on a model ship building forum and he has been a pleasure to work with. He has all kinds of wood you can order in sheets milled to spec or in strips. he is ev...

Curved Front End Table #5: Maple Back and Curved Cherry Top

04-23-2016 11:52 AM by Guy Dunlap | 2 comments »

In this episode, I make the back from some maple stock. The back is ship lapped and will be installed in a groove in the back legs I also make a solid cherry top with a curved front. Now I will say I completely screw up the first attempt by, well just being really stupid and not paying attention to what I was doing, and using the wrong bit in my router. I do show how I recover from this mistake in the end. As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To keep up with what I’...
