The Maloof Library Series #11: Triplets!

05-07-2012 01:25 PM by ScottMorrison | 3 comments »

Hello fellow sawdust-heads. Three lovely ladies ready to ship out in a few days. Thought you might like to see them. There are more pictures on my Facebook page. The two outer rockers are walnut, and the middle one is Tiger Maple (the quilting is awesome, even though the picture doesn’t show it). Cheers!

Spalted Maple Sofa Table #3: Cutting to size

09-19-2011 05:59 PM by superstretch | 5 comments »

TopOnce I had the top glued up, I realized I really should have used some biscuits to align everything. I had some serious steps between the boards and some very visible glue lines. I made a quick cross cut sled (in about 5 minutes) and was able to trim the ends of the top. I double checked with both a combo square and my framers square and both were dead on 90s. I really needed to sand the tabletop down. The vigorous scraping had left the top surface feeling very uneven. My brothe...

Why buy it when you can make it! #26: Too many cutting boards...

11-30-2014 01:56 AM by paxorion | 0 comments »

We had a slight break in the cold weather in my neck of the woods, so I ducked outdoors to do a bit of sanding of the cutting boards my wife asked me to make as Christmas presents for several of her family members. The router bit I used for my router sled left a bit of a mangled surface on the 3 end-grain cutting boards, so armed with a brand new Ridgid belt sander, I got to work with some cautious sanding. I can’t say I’m too experienced with a belt sander, so I am rather pro...

In the Classroom: You, Too, Can Be Self-Employed, version 2009

05-06-2009 10:14 PM by Jay Neale III | 4 comments »

Every year my beautiful wife, Debra, takes me to school to present a talk to her reading classes at Alvarado Junior High. This talk began, in 2004, with me telling the kids all about being a graphic artist and how important reading is in that job. Since I began doing this I have stopped being a graphic artist and started being a woodworker. So, last year, I changed the talk, splitting the time between one job and the other. Since last year my business started taking off, so this year I...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1412: My All Season Tree - Halloween, 2014

09-30-2014 12:12 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

Many of you who read know about my little "all season" tree. It is a tall and slim tree that I keep up all year round and change the decorations to coordinate with the season. Even though we live in a small place, it is nice to have such a wonderful little tree to brighten things up and decorate with different things. Since Keith and I are always designing new ornaments and things, I never run short of things to adorn it with. In fact – I don't think I have ever had it loo...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1292: Ooh, La La! Look at "Paris" Now!

04-15-2014 11:48 AM 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...

Workbench Build #36: Back at it.. Fitting the Tool Well...

08-05-2013 08:13 PM by Airframer | 12 comments »

Well, now that I am done distracting myself with mallets, saw benches and cleaning it is time to get back at this. I have set an arbitrary deadline of September(ish) for completion of this bench so it is time to ramp things up a bit. We left off with a partially fitted end cap in the last blog. A bit more progress has been made there. I have the Dovetails cut and “fitted (will require more plugs and shims.. perhaps by the 4th dovetail I will have this figured out?) As before I ...
