Two Maples….One Pine, and…. ....so i stepped outside to the wonders of an outdoor workshop, where some trees where culling my name, having not much time to pass with endless chatter, i reached down and turned my cell-phone off…. —-silence….. ....and so i went up last week and payed my respects to an old friend, one much wiser then me in all the ways of wood, who welcomed me back since our meeting of last fall, while even now this one is busy in the givin...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1496: Just About Finished!

02-12-2015 01:24 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 10 comments »

I spent the day yesterday finishing up my three new patterns as well as taking the photos for the pattern. It filled up most of my day (along with my usual errands and post office trip) and by the time I was finished, it was nearly bed time. I am going to be working on the pattern packets today, and hopefully by later on in the day we will send a newsletter out letting everyone know that the site is fully updated. As usual, it took a bit longer than I expected, but the results I feel wer...

Found wood.

09-11-2011 06:15 PM by CJay | 6 comments »

I’ve always enjoyed reusing wood, as well as being cheap it’s a great way to give a new lease of live to wood that would otherwise end up on the fire (or worse; the dump). Anyways, a friend was clearing out a cupboard and gave me the unwanted parts from some blinds she’d bought several years ago. All solid wood, and very clean maple at that. Rather than add them to the winter fuel pile, i had an idea. after cutting away the holes where the string went, i glued th...

Handcut

08-23-2007 06:30 PM by che | 4 comments »

I recently got “Hand-Cut Dovetails” with Rob Cosman and started practicing. This is the first attempt which is now a baby toy (no lead).Lessons learned. The stock is 1/4” thick. I think thicker material (3/4”) would be easier.

Exercises in Artisanship #25: Practices in Spoonology: Part four

09-10-2012 10:32 PM by jjw5858 | 7 comments »

So my business of country spoon sloyd craft carries on. Forgive me if my tales on this exploration have become boring, I realize there is not a lot of joinery going on. I am closing in as I enter the words here for session 4 of 5 of this spoon blog and have really made some nice strides. My greatest findings have been using the soil I live on to adventure more deeply into the woods and come out with new species I have never worked with before such as Hickory, Black Walnut, and Black Locust...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1478: Some Assembly Required

01-19-2015 12:36 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

I can't believe another weekend has passed by already! It seems like the time is just flying by and here we are already halfway finished with January. That is probably good news for those of you who don't like winter. As I write this morning, there are gusts of wind blowing outside as well as sporadic rain. Spring is right around the corner. I took an unscheduled day Saturday to travel up the valley with Keith. He had purchased something from Kajiji and was going to meet the sell...

Cutting Boards #5: Sanding, routing, sanding...

04-01-2012 08:33 PM by MolokMot | 2 comments »

The cutting board as seen in the picture below is just about complete. Just needs a little more sanding and finish. Since the last post, here are the steps completed: Using my dewalt random orbit sander I went through both 60 and 100 grit. After that I used what I believe to be a half inch round over in several passes. I left one side a much lighter pass then the other so that the cutting board can be used either way depending on the taste of its new owner. After routing, I went thro...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #11: A chop is born

03-23-2015 11:21 PM by ic3ss | 0 comments »

Today was a light day for me as I’m running out of things I can do until I get more wood, so today I cut out the side profile of the chop. I had this piece of thin ply laying around so I ripped it down to size and put my alignment marks on it, then drew the shoulder using a french curve template. Using the centerline I was able to do both sides. I clamped it on edge and sanded the template profile smooth then traced both sides on the chop. I cut a bunch ...
